LONDON, Dec. 31 (UPI) -- British physicist Tim Berners-Lee, who invented the World Wide Web -- or at least better access to it -- has been awarded a knighthood in London.
Without his creation, there would be no computer addresses, no e-mail and the Internet might still be the exclusive domain of a handful of computer experts, the Independent reported.
For the record, Berners-Lee is responsible for HTTP and HTML and the first browser and web server, not DNS, POP, SMTP or the Internet (TCP/IP) as this article implies.
