Web can be changed for better in next 30 yrs

"The dream behind the Web is of a common information space in which we communicate by sharing information", he wrote.

He said that the level of crime perpetuated via the web could increase over the years, adding that there are sources of dysfunction affecting today's web.

Speaking at a "Web@30" conference at CERN, Berners-Lee acknowledged that a sense among many who are already on the Web has become: "Whoops!"

Berners-Lee reminisced about how he was really out to get disparate computer systems to talk to one another, and resolve the "burning frustration" over a "lack of interoperability" of documentation from disparate computing systems used at CERN in the late 1980s.

"As the web reshaped our world, we have the responsibility to make sure it is recognised as a human right and built for the public good", he said. He wrote the first web browser in 1990 while employed at CERN near Geneva, Switzerland. The foundation is calling on governments to ensure everyone can connect to the internet, companies to respect privacy and offer web access at affordable rates, and citizens to respect civil discourse online. "It's our journey from digital adolescence to a more mature, responsible, and inclusive future".

In 1989, Sendall wanted a pretext tool to use the then-new Next computer by Apple for his research and asked Berners-Lee to "pick a random program to develop on it..." He also could not foresee the proliferation of hacking, criminal behaviour and hatred now spread online. He also named ad-based revenue models that commercially reward clickbait and the spread of fake news, and the unintended consequences that come from the outraged and polarized tone of online discussions.

In his annual letter on the web's birthday, Berners-Lee on Monday expressed optimism about what can be achieved in the next thirty years.

Google isn't the only one celebrating the birth of the World Wide Web though.

For the past decade, Berners-Lee has published an open letter every March 12, taking the WWW's anniversary as an opportunity to voice his opinions and concerns on the emerging issues facing our increasingly internet-reliant society.
