Thirty years ago Tim Berners-Lee proposed an information management system that has become known as the internet, the World Wide Web.
As many of us are aware the web has seemed to have jumped its proverbial tracks… derailing the ideals we imagined. Yet we still strive to build a collaborative platform for humanity. It may well be our destiny. The synergy of mind awakening to itself.
“At pivotal moments, generations before us have stepped up to work together for a better future. With the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, diverse groups of people have been able to agree on essential principles. With the Law of the Sea and the Outer Space Treaty, we have preserved new frontiers for the common good. Now too, as the web reshapes our world, we have a responsibility to make sure it is recognised as a human right and built for the public good. This is why the Web Foundation is working with governments, companies and citizens to build a new Contract for the Web.” — Tim Berners-Lee
