World Wide Web "Bill of Rights"

Sir Tim Berners-Lee, who created the world wide web concept, is now calling for a "Magna Carta" bill of rights to protect its users.

The "Web We Want" campaign has been set up by Sir Berners-Lee's World Wide Web Foundation
in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the WWW

Sir Tim Berners-Lee, in speaking with the BBC, suggested the online community has reached a crossroads: "It's time for us to make a big communal decision," he told the BBC. "Are we going to continue on the road and just allow the governments to do more and more and more control -- more and more surveillance? Or are we going to set up a bunch of values? Are we going to set up something like a Magna Carta for the world wide web and say, actually, now it's so important, so much part of our lives that it becomes on a level with human rights?"

This is the kind of thinking that will make a difference in helping to bring Humankind a new Rennaisance, rather that letting high technology get out of control. Take a look at his website and see what you might do to help create a "Bill of Rights" for all users.
