    Web inventor finally to get rewarded

    The man who invented the World Wide Web is finally to get some payment for having done so.

    Although many scientists were involved with the development of the internet, Tim Berners-Lee was the one who came up with the idea of the World Wide Web, says the Daily Mail

    However because he insisted it should not be patented, so everyone could have free access to it, so far he has missed out on the kind of fortunes that have come to some dotcom millionaires.

    Now Briton Berners-Lee, who lives in America, is to receive the world's largest science prize, the 650,000 Millennium Technology Prize from the Finnish Technology Award Foundation.
