As Wikipedia says Tim Berners-Lee, the creator of the HTML (HyperText Markup Language) was born in the UK and graduated from the Queen´s College in the Oxford University.
As I have already said, with the help of his group, Berners-Lee not only created the HTML language but he also created the HTTP protocol and the finder or locator of different objects on the Web called URL.
He is member of diverse groups such as the World Wide Web Consortium of which he is the director. This consortium is an organization that develops interoperable technologies like softwares, tools, guidelines…
He has been given very important awards like the Japan prize, the Prince of Asturias Foundation prize…
Nowadays, Berners-Lee works colaborating with Government of the UK to help make the data more accesible on the web, as Prime Minister Gordon Brown announced in June 2009.
