The most popular and comprehensive Open Source ECM platform
By Dick Weisinger
Twenty-eight years after proposing and then prototyping the internet, Sir Tim Berners-Lee has posted a warning about dangers that are potentially destabilizing the technology.
His three main worries are:
Loss of control of personal data
Consumers have lost control of their personal data, giving it up to online businesses and social networks, undermining individual freedoms.
It has become too easy for people with ill intentions to spread misinformation for financial or political gain
Lack of regulation around political advertising
Social and online platforms have made it too easy for political campaigns to target individuals and to sometimes says conflicting or completely different things to different groups.
Berners-Lee said that “I may have invented the web, but all of you have helped to create what it is today. All the blogs, posts, tweets, photos, videos, applications, web pages and more represent the contributions of millions of you around the world building our online community. It has taken all of us to build the web we have, and now it is up to all of us to build the web we want – for everyone.”
