Tim Berners-Lee has been appointed a professor at Southampton University, England. He’ll become chair of computer science at the university’s School of Electronics and Computer Science.
Southampton University in England, the first university to award him an honorary degree (in 1996) is going to be the new base for Sir Tim Berners-Lee, “Father of the World Wide Web.”
Although born in London, Sir Tim will now become chair of computer science at the university’s School of Electronics and Computer Science.
He will remain director of W3C, and will use his new position as the springboard for further development of the Semantic Web, his vision for the next-generation Internet.
“Professor Sir Tim Berners-Lee” – what next, a peerage? (Lord Berner-Lee has a ring to it, wouldn’t you say?)
