14 Year old admires Tim Berners-Lee

9 year old follow Notch, the Minecraft Developer

6 Year old is a fan of Dr Who, and while the character is fictional, my son tends to translate much of his real word understanding with experience from the show.

My sons (10 and 4) can both name Notch, the creator of Minecraft (only the 10-year-old knows his full name, though).

All three can name Steve Jobs, and the eldest two, Bill Gates. My daughter has heard of Zuck, I'm pretty sure, but beyond this I don't know. I'm going to ask when they get in from school!

My 7yo told me the other day that Steve Jobs was "an icon of the modern age"...!
