It’s a lofty goal: make the World Wide Web truly global. Now, the Web's inventor says he'll try to do just that.
The new World Wide Web Foundation, founded by Tim Berners-Lee, will launch next year to bring the Web to people who don’t have ready access to it, the organization announced today — an effort that reflects what Berners-Lee says is the inherent populist nature of the Web.
"The Web does not just connect machines, it connects people," Berners-Lee, who was working as a software engineer when he invented the Web, said last night during a speech to the philanthropic Knight Foundation, which gave the project a $5 million grant. "When a link is made, it is a person who makes the link. When a link is followed, it is a person who decides to follow it. Understanding and accounting for the social side of the Web was, and remains, a vital part of encouraging its growth."
