Here Tim Berners-Lee, who invented the WEB, speaks for himself… HE HOPES WE ARE LISTENING AND TAKING THIS TO HEART I"M SURE! This is why he didn't patent the WEB for billions. HE MEANT FOR IT TO BE OURS>>>EVERYONE'S WEB!
Speaking on the 25th anniversary of the world wide web, Tim Berners-Lee, web inventor and an outspoken critic of spy agencies' surveillance of citizens, said an online "Magna Carta" is needed to protect and enshrine the independence of the medium he created and the rights of its users worldwide.
"Unless we have an open, neutral internet we can rely on without worrying about what's happening at the back door, we can't have open government, good democracy, good healthcare, connected communities and diversity of culture. It's not naive to think we can have that, but it is naive to think we can just sit back and get it."
This was and still is the intent of the man that designed the Web and didn't patent it for billions. When you have someone like this and other major players as well saying we cannot at this point trust any country (including this one) or corporation with an unprotected Internet that speaks volumes. The rest of us better pay attention and step up on this. Only we are a force big enough to make this happen. We need a bill of rights for the WEB, "A Magna Carta". Bills like that have always been achieved only through the full weight of a society actively seeking to shape their destiny.
