Berners-Lee Elected to National Academy of Sciences
29 April 2009
Yesterday, CSAIL Principal Investigator Tim Berners-Lee was one of six MIT faculty members elected to the National Academy of Sciences. The NAS, established in 1863, is an organization whose membership is conferred only on those most distinguished in their fields. Berners-Lee was elected as one of a handful of foreign associates, whose numbers make up less than a fifth of the overall Academy.
