The Disruptor That Needs Disrupting | @CloudExpo #IoT #M2M #Cloud #DigitalTransformation

The Disruptor That Needs Disrupting By Greg Lord Many people mistakenly believe that Al Gore invented the Internet, but in reality it was Tim Berners-Lee. He created URIs, HTTP, HTML, and the first web browser - all critical building blocks that paved the way for the Internet to operate as the ubiquitous, decentralized network for sharing information that we take for granted today. As a result of his contributions to society, it was recently announced that Tim Berners-Lee has been awarded the prestigious Turing Award. Side note: The A.M. Turing Award is the heavyweight of all computer science-related awards, intended to recognize "an individual selected for contributions of a technical nature made to the computing community". This is an understated way of saying "people who have done something really awesome" in the realm of computer science. For anyone who is famil... (more)
