Tim Berners-Lee World Wide Web (WWW) Short-Sleeve Unisex T-Shirt (Limited Edition)

Tim Berners-Lee, full name Sir Tim Berners-Lee, is a British computer scientist who is widely recognized as the creator of the World Wide Web. He was born in London, England, on June 8, 1955. In 2004, Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom knighted him, and the Finnish Technology Award Foundation presented him with the first-ever Millennium Technology Prize, worth €1 million.

Web evangelist Berners-Lee worked from 1991 to 1993. He founded the World Wide Web (W3) Consortium in 1994 in the United States at the Laboratory for Computer Science of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The consortium oversees the Web and the creation of standards after consulting with various parties. The 3Com Founders chair at the Laboratory for Computer Science was originally held by Berners-Lee in 1999. Among his many other achievements was receiving the renowned Charles Stark Draper Prize from the National Academy of Engineering (2007). Weaving the Web: The Original Design and Ultimate Destiny of the World Wide Web was written by Berners-Lee and Mark Fischetti (2000).

He acquired a natural talent for computers because both of Berners-parents Lee’s worked on the Ferranti Mark I, the first commercial computer. The first devices with stored programming were computers (see computer). After earning his degree from the University of Oxford in 1976, Berners-Lee worked at Poole, Dorset-based Plessey Telecommunications Ltd. for two years developing computer software. After that, he worked in the computer sector for a while, serving from June to December 1980 as a software engineering consultant at CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics in Geneva.
