Abstract

The first‐ever Millennium Technology Prize has been awarded to Tim Berners‐Lee for the invention of the WWW service on the Internet. He was unanimously selected as the winner of the 2004 prize, which is presented by the Finnish Technology Award Foundation, ahead of 78 nominated innovators from 22 countries. The honor, which is accompanied by one €1,000,000, is bestowed as an international acknowledgement of outstanding technological innovation that directly promotes people’s quality of life, is based on humane values, and encourages sustainable economic development. According to the award board, this is just like a definition of the World Wide Web!
