Berners-Lee the Most Influential Man in Tech

Tim Berners-Lee was voted the most influential person in the technology industry by a panel of experts according to several sources.

Berners-Lee of course is the man responsible for the web as we know it.

Surprisingly Bill Gates is all the way down at number 31 on the list. Of course the Google guys make appearances.

Doug Caverly at WebProNews writes, “Mind you, the list covers the last 150 years, and that’s where we see some objections coming in; Google’s only about ten years old, and has yet to help defeat Nazis, for example.”

Very true, Doug.
