This infographic by Glow New Media in Liverpool is all about the founders of the Internet. According to the team behind this visual information, a large number of names made the short list during the process of researching. They narrowed the list down by asking a simple questions: would the global Internet be substantially reduced without the body of work of this individual?
The people who evidently passed this test are Bill Gates, Alan Turing, Larry Page, Sergey Brin, Steve Jobs, Bob Kahn, Vint Cerf, Jeff Bezos, Jimmy Wales, Chad Hurley, Pierre Omidyar, Jerry Yang, Bill Gross and Tim Berners-Lee. Ultimately, I believe this is a list we can all agree on. Is there anyone who you think should be included?
