Tim Berners-Lee - Millennium Technology Prize Laureate 2004

Tim Berners-Lee, an MIT senior research scientist credited with inventing the World Wide Web, has been awarded the first Millennium Technology Prize. The award of 1 million euros ($1.2 million) was established in 2002 and backed by the Finnish government.

The prize committee said Berners-Lee's contribution strongly embodied the spirit of the award, given "for an innovation that directly promotes people's quality of life, is based on humane values and encourages sustainable economic development."
