The 2016 Turing Award

tim-berners-lee-turingThe Turing Award, or how it is sometimes called “a Nobel Prize in computing” for 2016 was awarded to the inventor of the World Wide Web Sir Tim Berners-Lee.

Believe it or not, but I was born and raised without any internet at all, and I remember the day of the first announcement of WWW, and remember how I could not understand what that all fuss is about…

Check out the ACM announcement here and see for yourself, how many terms and concepts he’d introduced (and you might have thought they were “always here” !)
