Tim Berners-Lee was announced as the winner of the Turing Award for 2016, cited for “inventing the World Wide Web, the first web browser, and the fundamental protocols and algorithms allowing the web to scale.” In addition to his work on inventing the internet, he’s also been doing meaningful work for individual privacy, open and accessible data, and government transparency. Well deserved, indeed. Cheers to you, Sir Berners-Lee.
