30. Tim Berners-Lee
- Most Famous For Inventing: The World Wide Web
Tim Berners-Lee is an engineer and computer scientist who currently serves as the Director of the World Wide Web Consortium & the Web Research Initiative. He’s also the Founder of the World Wide Web Foundation. There is more to his resume, but we think you get the point.
Tim invented the internet and the first web page as well. He called it “info.cern.ch,” and it is still live to this day. The page serves mostly as an information tool, as the name suggests. While working an employee at the European Organization for Nuclear Research or “CERN,” he used their NeXT Computer to go live with the first webpage on December 20, 1990.
