Vic Hayes:Father of Wi-Fi
Hayes is a Dutch-born electrical engineer who worked at NCR Corp. and later Agere. He’s known less for technological wizardry than for his diplomatic skills. As chairman of the IEEE 802.11 working group for wireless LANs, he was instrumental in developing the standards that led to the success of 802.11 wireless LANs. Today, he is Senior Research Fellow at Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands.

James Gosling:Father of Java
Canada-born Gosling was born to code. While working on a doctorate in computer science from Carnegie-Mellon, he wrote a multiprocessor version of Unix. At Sun, he is credited with inventing the Java programming language in 1991. In a blog posting in 2006, he noted that neither his wife nor his kids had ever seen him without a beard, which he had to shave off prior to having surgery for sleep apnea.
