Acknowledged by many as the 'Father of the World Wide Web', Tim Berners-Lee received a Knighthood in the New Years' Honours List. Born in London in 1955, Sir Tim received an honorary degree in the OU's first Virtual Degree Ceremony, engineered by KMi, in March 2000. The ceremony was aimed at the worldwide body of students who graduated from the Masters Programme in Open and Distance Education. The graduating cohort was only 26 but tuned in from as far afield as Taiwan, the US, Iceland and Hong Kong.
