Word via Stephen Green about the University of Waterloo's Professor Frank Tompa getting a street named after him. And the search connection? He helped found Open Text, which back in the day (1994-95ish) was the Google of its era, including being Yahoo's first crawler partner. Open Text still thrives in the enterprise search space. I think the naming (it happened last October) means Tompa is the first person connected to web search to be honored in such a fashion. I'm sure we'll see Monier Avenue, Gross Street, Page Highway and Brin Boulevard in the future -- but Frank Tompa Drive gets there first :)
