Tim Berners-Lee, Computer Scientist
Tim Berners-Lee was born June 8th, 1995 in London, Great Britain
I then graduated from Oxford and became a software engineer for CERN,
Tim Berners-Lee had difficulty proposing his idea to his boss at CERN.
At the time that the first few computers were being made, he realized that information on one computer couldn't be found on another and vice versa. So he came up with the idea of the World Wide Web, a shareable interface that all computers could enter.
When he finally was able to start working on his idea of the shared internet, he wrote some recognizable pieces of code: WorldWideWeb.app, or www, HTTP, HTML, and URI.
Because he made the World Wide Web, he changed society greatly. If he hadn't created the www, you wouldn't be able to see this.
Did you know that Tim Berners-Lee made a computer out of an old Television set while in College?
