According to the Grauniad, he invented more than just the web:

"A knighthood also goes to Tim Berners-Lee, 48, the Oxford-educated
physicist who wrote the first program for what later became the world wide
web, or the internet."

(from http://www.guardian.co.uk/monarchy/story/0,2763,1114236,00.html)

Some well-deserved recognition, though.
