Why is it said that the life of Tim Berners-Lee is inspirational?

          Tim Berners-Lee was born on June 8th, 1955 in London to Mary Lee Woods and Conway Berners-Lee. His parents were both computer programmers who had worked on the Ferranti Mark 1, the first commercially built computer.

          After schooling, Tim Berners-Lee pursued studies at the Queen’s College in Oxford, where he received a degree in physics.

          Prior to his employment at CERN, Lee worked as an engineer at Plessey, a telecommunication company. At CERN, he was an independent contractor who later proposed a project that facilitated sharing of information among researchers. This later led to the founding of the World Wide Web.

          A genius with high humanitarian values, Lee’s contribution to the world is immense. His World Wide Web Foundation seeks to ensure that the Web serves humanity.
