10 – Tim Berners-Lee
Tim Berners-Lee, invented the worldwide web in 1989. The web has done more to bring about mass appeal than probably any other invention in the evolution of the PC.
Computer Weekly celebrates the birthday of one of Britain’s greatest sons, Charles Darwin (1809-1882), with our representation of the evolution of the PC.
In his 1882 book "On the Origin of Species", Darwin explained how over billions of years simple organisms evolved into the complex life forms we see today.
Computers on the other-hand have evolved at a much faster rate.
