Much has been debated about the present and future state of the world wide web. Issues surrounding censorship, privacy and security have become central to our national, political and economic climate.
Here, Time Berns-Lee offers his perspective on the future of the internet, and what he would like to see in the years to come.
Berns-lee hops the future of the web will be one "which is not fragmented into lots of pieces ... in reaction to recent surveillance."
Instead Berners-lee advocates for a web "which ... is a really good basis for democracy. A Web where I can use health care with privacy ... a Web which is such a powerful basis for innovation that when something nasty happens, some disaster strikes, that we can respond by building stuff to respond to it very quickly."
