NBC vs. Tim Berners-Lee: Twitter Responds
The London 2012 Olympic opening ceremony featured a tribute to Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the founder of the world wide web, to which Meredith Vieira and Matt Lauer, NBC's hosts, responded: "If you haven't heard of him, we haven't either."
- While Meredith Vieira and Matt Lauer didn't know who Sir Tim was, many others clearly do.
- It's also worth noting that NBC is being heralded (and hounded) for its digital and streaming efforts around this year's Olympic games (and they are owned by an Internet company now).

- Other people pointed out a few reasons why Matt and Meredith should know who Time Berners-Lee is.
