Tim Berners-Lee honoured

The man credited with inventing the 'world wide web', without which my little blog would not be possible, has just been awarded a further honour having been named as the first winner of the Millennium Technology Prize by the Finnish Technology Award Foundation. The award is accompanied by a prize of Euros 1m. This modest man well-deserves this latest recognition of his contribution to many people's daily lives, not to mention his facilitation of a major new way of doing business.
