Queen Elizabeth II appointed Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director and inventor of the World Wide Web, to be a member of the Order of Merit. Founded in 1902, the Order of Merit is an honour conferred by the sovereign of the United Kingdom to individuals for "exceptionally meritorious service," usually in the arts, learning, literature and sciences. Twenty four individuals plus foreign recipients may hold the honor at one time. "Awards such as this are for public service, a service which in this case has been largely carried out by the W3C. All those involved in consortium activity should feel recognized by this acknowledgment of the importance of W3C's work," said Berners-Lee.
