Knighthood for Tim Berners-Lee, creator of the WWW. Even cooler, WorldWideWeb – Executive Summary is the original Usenet post where the project is announced. For good measure, a couple of months later Linus Torvalds announces Linux. [via Waffle]

Also, Google has it’s own page showing “historic” moments in Usenet history, dating back to 1981. Pretty cool.
