Tim Berners-Lee: Some people will always try to control the internet. We have to keep fighting for it

“One of Berners-Lee’s ideals is a “decentralised” internet — a hive network where no one has overall control.”

Despite what the article says, I know he didn’t "invent’ the internet. lol. He sure is getting a lot of publicity right now though. Anyone know if he’s heard of maidsafe?

I was just wondering this same question, so figured I’d search the forum for ‘berners’, and found your post.

After seeing that Tim Berners-Lee is a senior researcher and holder of the Founders Chair at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), I’d be surprised if he has not yet heard of MaidSafe or the SAFE Network. Having said that, it wouldn’t hurt for someone to send him a quick tweet @timberners_lee.

I wouldn’t do it because I have a corporate Twitter account, so would come off as spammy, but perhaps someone with a personal Twitter account could?
