THREE CHEERS FOR TIM BERNERS-LEE


Tim Berners-Lee said today: “The internet is designed as a decentralised system. At the moment, because countries connect to each other in lots of different ways, there is no one off switch, there is no central place where you can turn it off.”

“In order to be able to turn the whole thing off or really block or suppress one particular idea then the countries and governments would have to get together and agree and co-ordinate and turn it from a decentralised system to being a centralised system. And if that does happen it is really important that everybody fights against that sort of direction.”
