born c. 1955 -- Tim Berners-Lee
Okay. We've now uttered words of gratitude for giants in the worlds of
printing, accounting, freedom, computers, photography, photocopiers, and
food. These are all vital to just about every Fool. But for those of us who
gather here online regularly, there's one last person to thank: Mr. Tim
Berners-Lee, the visionary who first conceived of the World Wide Web as we
know it. You may not have heard of him, as he's not a multi-billionaire CEO.
However, without his work, many multi-billionaire CEOs might still be
tinkering in their garages, borrowing money from their moms for lunch.
