WWW 25th

25 years. Amazing.

Thank you Sir Tim Berners-Lee.

News articles relating to the anniversary list pros and cons — hope on the one hand, doom and gloom and other hand.


•  Universal access to all human knowledge

•  Power to the people instead of to the government

•  Diminished ability of nations to control everyone within their boundaries

Doom and gloom:

•  Invasion of privacy and confidentially

•  Mass surveillance (is this any different, at least for those of us who grew up in small towns, where everyone knew everything that went on?)

•  Cyberterrorism

•  Too much rubbish (answer to this it simple: skip the rubbish, don’t read it; there’s rubbish to read on newsstands and everywhere you look, you skip most of it, don’t you?)

March too much time on web
