Creator of World Wide Web wants to re-make the internet
The man responsible for creating the World Wide Web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, says he wants to re-make the internet. Reuters reports that Berners-Lee, has created a new startup called “Inrupt.” Berners-Lee’s goal is to fix some of the problems that have disrupted the internet in our time. Huge corporations like Facebook and Twitter are operating closed platforms and as such he argues the user has lost control: “People are fed up with the lack of controls, the silos,” he explained. Berners-Lee’s new web plans to enable person-to-person sharing and collaboration while leaving the user in control. He places a great emphasis on the importance of the individual keeping their personal data in their hands.
