Sir Tim Berners-Lee, “The real inventor of the World-Wide Web,” will be lecturing on a topic to be announced on April 5 at 8:00 pm in McCosh 50.
Berners-Lee is the director of the World Wide Web Consortium, senior researcher at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, and professor of computer science at Southampton School of Electronics and Computer Science. He is also author of Weaving the Web: The Original Design and Ultimate Destiny of the World Wide Web by its Inventor. (HarperCollins, 1999)
Time Magazine has hailed Berners-Lee as one of the 100 greatest minds of the century. His contribution in creating the WWW has changed the way we do business, the way we organize and gain access to information, and communicate and even socialize with one another. His vision of the WWW is more than simply an efficient tool for research and communication, but more… a means to a new way of thinking and the extension of social freedoms throughout the world.
