    Sir Timothy Berners-Lee

    The guy who invented the web. This guy created the most widely use platform on earth and hardly anyone knows who he is.

    It would love to see how many members honestly have never heard of this guy.

    most people who watched the 2012 olympics opening ceremony should know him (he was in the opening ceremony).

    Technically he invented the World Wide Web. The Internet already existed.

    I too have heard of him.

    I'm the 5%! I remember him from when I started on the Internet, and I think they even mentioned him in the London Olympic Game's opening ceremony.

    TimBL didn't invent the internet, he created the world wide web, the standard protocol for surfing the internet. Still, an awesome pioneer.

    ok for the couple of people that pointed it out. Yes he invented the world wide web, which today we call the internet. Sorry if my op wasnt explicit enough.

    seriously though, how often do you say "im going on the world wide web for an hour" or do you say "im going on the internet for a bit"

    Someone who's into computers and hasn't come across his name is a fail... lol

    Well, maybe not a fail but it's kind of hard not to come across him.
