Sir Tim Berners-Lee: “We’ve lost control of our personal data”.


As the world wide web celebrates it’s 28th birthday, founder and web inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee explains how the internet has developed, and voices his concerns about recent trends that he believes need to be tackled immediately for the internet to fulfil its true potential.

One of those concerns is the loss of control of our personal data, and how many consumers seem happy to give away their personal information in exchange for services without realising that their information will be shared with other companies. In his open letter on his Web Foundation website, Mr Berners-Lee makes some suggestions as to how we can regain some of that control.
