Start an open source project get knighted
Who says open source doesn't pay. Just noticed on Slashdot that "Tim Berners-Lee has been promoted to Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire" http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/3357073.stm
The knighthood was for initiating the work that made the web possible as a distributed source of information. It was not for developing an "open source project."
Me and the view out the window
Pfff. What has the Web done for us lately? ;-)
To put things in perspective, I noticed on the link about his being Knighted, that the coach of a Rugby team was also Knighted.
Not quite "a rugby team", it was more "the England rugby team"...
