Google and Microsoft big names in Copenhagen

Inventors of spreadsheet and the new browser Google Chrome to speak at Computer Science's 40-year bash

Charles Simonyi is the man behind Word and Excel and is said to be number five in the Microsoft hierarchy (stinking rich, that is).

Brian Rakowski is the man behind Google Chrome, which is the browser you use if you are hip, leaving all the Internet Explorer and Firefox users in the dust.

DIKU, the Department of Computer Sciences, is celebrating its 40th anniversary today Thursday.

The University Post will be covering the event.
