Lords Hansard 16 Jan 2014: On the 25th anniversary of the WWW

Lords Hansard text for 16 Jan 2014 (pt 0002): "Baroness O’Neill of Bengarve (CB):

My Lords, I thank my noble friend Lady Lane-Fox for introducing what must be a central topic for all of us. She also asked the right question: what sort of world wide web do we want? There are also the questions of what sort of web we can have and have now.

We are probably living in the twilight of the cyber-romantics who think that zero regulation of everything online is the way we should head. We obviously are not in that situation. The effective and enriching use of the web is life-transforming but depends on the right sort of legislation and regulation in the right places." 'via Blog this'
