Next month, President George W. Bush and Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez will present the National Medal of Technology and Innovation to six individuals and two companies, InformationWeek reports. The medal is the U.S.'s highest honor for achievement in science and technology.

 

Among the winners: eBay, for creating technology that encouraged online trade and global entrepreneurship; Paul Baran, for helping to make the Internet possible by inventing packet switching; and -- most interestingly for purposes of this blog -- David Cutler, for "designing and implementing global standards for real-time, personal, and server-based operating systems."

 

Cutler is currently a Technical Fellow at Microsoft.
