I invented the web. Here are three things we need to change to save it: Tim Berners-Lee
I invented the web. Here are three things we need to change to save it | Tim Berners-Lee | Technology | The Guardian: "Through collaboration with – or coercion of – companies, governments are also increasingly watching our every move online and passing extreme laws that trample on our rights to privacy. In repressive regimes, it’s easy to see the harm that can be caused – bloggers can be arrested or killed, and political opponents can be monitored. But even in countries where we believe governments have citizens’ best interests at heart, watching everyone all the time is simply going too far. It creates a chilling effect on free speech and stops the web from being used as a space to explore important topics, such as sensitive health issues, sexuality or religion." 'via Blog this'
