Other information technology guru, Nicholas Negroponde teaches in Massachusetts since 1966 with more young age – 23 years! He is a partner of many world famous technology companies, as well as advising several governments even. In 1985 he founded the Media Laboratory. The main profile is his laboratory research in the application of revolutionary digital applications, such as MP3 audio format, as well as the creation of quantum computers and processor development of cybernetic organisms.In the digital world leaders Nicholas brought a unique blend of technology and anthropologist, researcher and activist. A typical example of his philosophy is the idea of a computer for $ 100, has received widespread in the world. Many of his works Nicholas Negroponde spent on the island of Patmos, where some 30 years had his home. Not surprisingly, the Patmos became the first place in Greece, where it first appeared wired internet, and later in 2001, and wireless (Wi-Fi).

Constant contender for the Nobel Prize in physics, teacher and academician Dimitris Nanopoulos , tries to explore the mysteries of the universe and the theory of eternity, but does not forget about modern Greece. After he failed to lead the department in the University. Kapodistrias, they have attempted to reform education in Greece . Or rather to raise the level of education of the modern world-class, the introduction of new disciplines, especially those which Dimitris Nanopoulos personally involved – high energy physics, cosmology, nanotechnology, quantum computing. Recently, he was elected chairman of the “Council of Wise Men”, the governing body of the National Council for Research and Technology. At the same time his candidacy represented Greece as Managing laboratory «Cern», which actually was born the Internet.

Also works in the field of nanotechnology and other Greek Fedon Avuris . He is the head of the corporation ΙΒΜ nanotechnology research center in New York. His research – creating nanotransistors that size is 500 times less than the currently existing and which will be used in information technology and medicine.

Greek and, moreover, a native of Constantinople 45-year-old researcher and creator of a new type of device Blackberry , marked the beginning of a generation of smartphones.The original concept, which allows one device to connect voice, data, Internet and e-mail, has cemented its name Michalis Lazaridis . Born in Greece, but grew up in Canada, he was aged 23, began to put pressure on General Motors Corporation for funding their ideas. To date, the Canadian company RIM is one of the leaders of the North American market technological products.

Despite the fact that many Athenians met almost every day in their daily lives software products «Topos communications», name Grigoris Lambrou is not particularly well known to the general public. But his company developed motion control systems used transport streams from Athens tram depot International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos”.Other products «Topos communications» – e topography and satellite navigation system. Grigoris Lambrou, yadershik physicist by training, began his career in the Silicon Valley, where worked for 35 years at companies such as “Ai-Bi-M”, “Hewlett-Packard”, “Intel”.

In place of the older generation and the new generation is growing up. The idea of an affordable laptop for $ 100, also brought to life the Greek – Michalis Bletsas , which is considered to be its creator. Also, he owns the motto “Computer for every child.”

Alexandros Mukasey Christ Kaskavelis, company executives software development «Velti», has not yet had time to loudly declare itself on the IT market. But the fact that founded a few years ago in the northern Athens, the company has already started on the London Stock Exchange, speaks volumes.

In the global environment, scientific and technical developments can already be found sufficiently Greek researchers at the age of about 30 years. Thus, the tradition continues!
