A radically open, egalitarian and decentralized platform, the Web has changed the world. The protocols and programming languages have nearly all been designed for evolution. Very soon, millions more sensors, appliances and other devices large and small will take the web to new places. The potential is both exciting and concerning to Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the Inventor of the World Wide Web
 
While the Web has openness and flexibility woven into its fabric, it is under threat from some governments that may abuse their powers, some businesses that may try to undermine the open market, and from criminal activity. The future of the Web depends on ordinary people taking responsibility for this extraordinary resource.  Also the real power of personal data - its use by the person it is about - is ironically yet to be realized. 
 
In this fireside chat with Rudina Seseri, Partner at Fairhaven Capital, Berners-Lee will share share his goals for the Web over the next quarter century – how he envisions we can continue to advance our society and reduce some of the threats to the democratization of the Web.
