The Queen of England this month named Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web, a Knight Commander, Order of the British Empire, in honor of his contributions to the development of the Internet.

The British computer scientist and Oxford graduate holds the 3Com Founders chair at the Laboratory for Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence at MIT, and he is director of the World Wide Web Consortium.

Berners-Lee invented the initial specifications for URLs, HTTP and HTML while working at CERN, the European Particle Physics Laboratory. He wrote the first Web browser and server software in 1990.
