Who Invented the Internet? A Word from the Real Inventor

Scientific American has an article by the guy who really did invent the world wide web: Tim Berners-Lee.

He says the freedom of the internet needs to be defended, and he has some pretty interesting thoughts, especially if you’re "techie" enough to understand it all. Even if you can’t understand it all, he’s got some things to say about Facebook and other such "communities" that ought to be heard.

I guess he’s been fighting a bit to keep the internet free, and he suggests there are more attacks on that freedom than we realize.

Anyway, I wanted to do my part to spread this information.

If nothing else, there’s something unique about reading an article on the internet written by a guy who, just 20 years ago, had the only web page and only browser in existence on his computer.
