nowadays he's working to help internet users regain control and ownership of their personal data. so thirty is of the internet to discuss that with me we have robots of the studio digital natives only one year old the internet itself so he has the right talk. is rob you've looked into this the history of the internet and the world wide web it was it's a bit really invented thirty years ago today so the track we mustn't fall into is saying that the internet was invented thirty years ago today wasn't the internet isn't been thirty years ago today that it's been around since founts of the one nine hundred sixty s. in one form or another this is the world wide web we're talking about the difference the world wide web is what we access every time we use a web browser like google chrome or firefox or as far your internet explorer and it's the system of coded web pages so you know the layout was designed by something
7:34 am
that someone's written and then the skipping from one page to another by clicking on links and typing in addresses that's the world wide web and it's thirty years ago today this father here tim berners they first put forward his proposal for the world wide web or what he called at the time an information management systems finance he his boss on first hearing that proposal described it as vague but exciting think that it. has become pretty concrete but hasn't. posted yesterday on the internet it. really isn't too happy with how his brain child has developed what is what's his cons yeah he's got a few concerns to be honest it's not what he did madge and it's going to be not happy with the way this is going it was supposed to be the great leveller he invented it as a way of people being able to share information so that we could solve the world's problems together but in this letter yesterday he says
7:35 am
a few issues three particular points that he makes all the time he doesn't like the way it's now being used by state actors to spread disinformation. and undermine democracy he says he doesn't like the advertising models that are often being used that encourage click bait articles so you know things with no real sort of intellectual value he also says he dislikes the way that the internet has encouraged debate of outraged sometimes his stare at cool so he doesn't like the trolling this virtual but lots and lots and lots of money is being made the internet. the world wide web his invention he made available free of charge. now the. companies like this one who actually say thank you very cleverly like this today they may make loads of money as he is the critical of the well they've got they've got plenty of reason to be thankful they've been able to make a lot of money out of his invention but what he's concerned about is commercial interests getting in the way of what he calls the public good he fears that use of
7:36 am
data and the way that people are being made to pay to use websites is not really in the spirit of what he invented thirty years ago today so he's actually working on a few projects one of them to try to help people take back control of that data and another one which he calls the contract of the web which is an idea that governments come together to put together a series of laws about the web or at least guidelines on how it should be used a bit like you know we've got the universal declaration of human rights the law of the sea the outer space treaty where people of from different nations come together to come up with a way of going forward and he wants that for the web he says that the internet and the web his invention is currently going through a troubled adolescent phase but he thinks it's not too late to save it. reports of on tim berners lee and how he's worried about the wants to that he created which is the internet is thirty years today. oil production is set to continue to
