Tim Berners-Lee On the Future of the Web
Sir Tim Berners-Lee is the pioneer responsible for the first successful communication between an HTTP client and a server, making him the founding father of the World Wide Web. Mental Floss magazine has a good run down of Tim’s thoughts on the current state of the WWW, and where it’s headed next.
He notes that the web can propagate misinformation very easily, and that we need some kind of ratings system to assure a site’s trustworthiness He also feels that the web is currently “for the West by the West,” and needs to be designed around the unique needs of emerging parts of the world, and for all the different technologies people access it on. Berners-Lee is also staunchly against any kind of scheme that would reject net neutrality.
