Timothy Berners-Lee, Web Founder: We Need A New Web

The Inventor of the Web Thinks We Need a New One That Governments Can’t Control

Although the internet has created millions of new opportunities for people around the world and made the sum of human knowledge available to anyone with a connection, it’s also created problems that seem impossible to solve.
“Edward Snowden showed we’ve inadvertently built the world’s largest surveillance network with the web,” said Brewster Kahle, who heads up Internet Archive. And he’s not wrong: governments across the globe keep an eye on what their citizens are accessing online and some censor content on the Web in an effort to control what they think.
Sir Tim Berners-Lee, who invented the World Wide Web, believes that the way his creation works in the present day “completely undermines the spirit of helping people create.”
