Tim Berners-Lee: WWW inventor

First working at Plessey, and then at CERN in Geneva, Berners-Lee, wrote 'Enquire' in 1980 which linked fragments of information together. In 1984 he used this work to propose a global hypertext system, known as the world-wide web and built on HTML and HTTP. He didn't patent the key technology, so adoption was rapid and it became ubiquitous for global computer communications.
