It was he who coined the term World-wide-web (WWW), wrote 'httpd' and and the first client program (now known as a browser) called "WorldWideWeb" back in the October of 1990 (gosh ! wasnt that long ago - was it ?). His words when interviewed "The Web must remain a universal medium, open to all and not biasing the information it conveys. As the technology becomes ever more powerful and available, using more kinds of devices, I hope we learn how to use it as a medium for working together, and resolving misunderstandings on every scale.". The knighthood adds to his already impressive list of very well-deserved awards.
My kudos to such a great mind!
