Berners-Lee says World Wide Web, at 30, must emerge from ‘adolescence’


Berners-Lee said many people now felt unsure about whether the web was a force for good, but it would be defeatist and unimaginative to assume that it could not change for the better in the next 30 years. — Reuters

GENEVA: The fraying World Wide Web needs to rediscover its strengths and grow into maturity, its designer Tim Berners-Lee said on March 11, marking the 30th anniversary of the collaborative software project his supervisor initially dubbed "vague but exciting".

Speaking to reporters at CERN, the physics research centre outside Geneva where he invented the web, Berners-Lee said users of the Web had found it "not so pretty" recently.
