But you’d never get that impression from Sir Tim himself, the man who invented the World Wide Web barely a decade ago with nary a thought of power or glory, fame or fortune. He runs the World Wide Web Consortium from a modest academic suite of offices at MIT. He’s an accessible scientist who speaks warily, almost defensively, about the miracle he wrought. It is his pleasure, or perhaps his habit by now, to tell you what the Web is not.
