compassion, collaboration & cooperation iN transistion
SO WHY one must ask [IS] the MAN who
in any other sense than IDEAS !!!???
In a recent Billy Perrigo TIME interview Berners Lee said..
"I’ve got a vision for an alternative world, in which that
data does exist, but it’s at the beck and call of the user
themselves. Where the apps are actually separated
from the data source. So when you use an app, it asks,
where do you want me to store the data? And you have
complete control over who gets access to it. It would be
a new world. We’re talking about a future in which
these programs work for you. They don’t work for
Amazon, they don’t work for Apple" and in response to
Perrigo's questions: "When you envisioned the world wide
web for the first time 30 years ago, did you have any sense
of the impact that it would have?" and "Did you predict the
problems we currently see, like disinformation & trolling?
Tim Berners Lee answered: "I didn’t. We didn’t even know
that it would work. To some extent, there are still
things that can go wrong with it, and we shouldn’t take
it for granted" and "Yes and no. Did we imagine that
people would do bad things on the web? Absolutely.
From very early on, we knew that if it’s a powerful
technology, then it’s going to be used for good and
bad, just like all other powerful technologies. But
initially our feeling philosophically was that the web
should be a neutral medium. It’s not for the web to try
to correct humanity. The web would hopefully lead to
humanity becoming more connected, and therefore,
maybe more sympathetic to itself — and therefore,
perhaps less conflict-ridden. That was our hope. But
in general, we expected day-to-day life on the web to
be like day-to-day life on the street, to have its rough
edges and its smooth edges".
AS WE MAY THINK in[DEED]
