World Wide Web inventor wants new 'contract' to make web safe

World Wide Web Inventor Wants New'Contract To Make Internet Safe

The French government and internet giants Google and Facebook back the principles of the proposed contract, such as respect for people's right to privacy and guarantees that everyone can connect to the internet, according to his Web Foundation.

One serves as a reminder that the freedom we enjoy on the Internet today will always be in the crosshairs of those who seek power and profit.

So that anyone, no matter who they are or where they live, can participate actively online. He is advocating that everyone sign his "Contract for the Web" which outlines a series of core principles promoting privacy protections and securing internet access for everyone.

Another challenge is how to make it possible for people to have access to the Internet, as only "one half" of the world can afford it at the moment. And to fix the issues we have with the existing Web.

On the other hand, companies will look forward to making the Internet more affordable.

So the web really is a public good that puts people first.

He then berated Acosta for the way he questioned White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in briefings. A digest of the top political stories from the Globe, sent to your inbox Monday-Friday.

Among those scheduled to speak at the event is Christopher Wylie, a whistleblower who earlier this year said users' data from Facebook was used by British political consultancy Cambridge Analytica to help elect US President Donald Trump - a claim denied by the company. Individuals are encouraged to "respect civil discourse and human dignity so that everyone feels safe and welcome online".

So the web remains open and a global public resource for people everywhere, now and in the future.

These principles are backed by the organisation's Case for the Web report.

He explained that the world is at a point where nearly half the population is online.

For three decades we've seen the tremendous good that the web can deliver.

"Over 1.2 billion internet users live in countries where net neutrality is not protected, and more than 1.5 billion people live in countries with no comprehensive law on personal data protection, leaving them particularly vulnerable to increasingly common incidents involving breaches of personal data". Berners-Lee slammed social media saying that we have passed the "tipping point" and that "silos shouldn't dominate your life".

"The genie may seem to have come out of the bottle, but the internet has surprised us many times", he added. "Do me a favour, fight for it with me".

Tim Berners-Lee, the creator of the web, launches Contract for the Web that encourages companies to agree to let individuals own and control their data and importantly to allow mobility of data.

Since net neutrality was repealed in the United States at the end of 2017, fears have grown around what this might mean for end-users and businesses alike.

Another pet project of Berners-Lee is to decentralise the web, something that would naturally involve defanging the likes of Facebook and Google, which exert a ton of influence over the internet.

"Some policy things like net neutrality have to involve governments, some things clearly involve companies - big companies, small companies and start-ups".
