The Internet and the Web

Both have revolutionised the way we communicate and enabled the creation of whole new industries.

Robert Kahn, Vinton Cerf and Louis Pouzin made seminal contributions to the protocols that together make up the fundamental architecture of the Internet. Tim Berners-Lee created the World Wide Web and vastly extended the use of the Internet beyond email and file transfer. Marc Andreessen, while a student and working with colleagues, wrote the mosaic browser, which made the Web accessible to anyone.
