Tim Berners-Lee (born 1955): Tim Berners-Lee is a British computer scientist recognized globally as the inventor of the World Wide Web. Born in the mid-20th century, Berners-Lee envisioned a unifying structure for linking information across different computers. In 1989 while working at CERN, he proposed a decentralized system of information management. This led to the first successful communication between a Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) client and server via the internet in late 1990. Berners-Lee’s invention of the World Wide Web which included the establishment of HTTP, Uniform Resource Locators (URLs), and HTML, changed the way we create and consume information. Today, it underpins the modern digital age, profoundly shaping many facets of society, including communication, education, business, and entertainment.
