Sir Timothy Berners-Lee
Photos of the Evening
At the honoree’s request, the focus of the evening was a discussion between guests, moderated by Christoph Keese, which emphasized the manifold influence of Berners-Lee’s invention in every area of society, politics, business and culture – and naturally the media as well.
“His challenge was to overcome borders and bring people together. Sir Timothy Berners-Lee found a solution and at the same time laid the foundation for nothing less than a radical transformation of our world.”
