This brings to mind why no-one has come up with a 'patron-saint' of computers.

Who said there wasn't?

According to wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patron_saints_of_occupations_an... the patron saint of computer scientists, computer programmers, computer technicians, computer users, schoolchildren, students is Saint Isidore of Seville. Saint Isidore's wikipedia page includes the Internet: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isidore_of_Seville

Here are a couple additional pages on Saint Isidore of Seville:

I personally don't get involved with Patron Saints, believing that there is only one mediator between man and God, the man Jesus Christ. (1 Timothy 2:5) However, that doesn't prevent me from googling patron saint of computers. :)
