Berners-Lee-Olympic-2

Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee stars in Olympics opening ceremony @ ZDNet:

Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the web, was greeted by cheers on Friday as the opening ceremony of the London Olympic Games celebrated his work. The event showed how digital communications have become part of everyday life via the story of Frankie and June, a pair of kids who hook up via social networking on their mobile phones. At the end, Berners-Lee sat in the middle of the Olympic Stadium live-tweeting a message for the occasion.
