But Sir Tim Berners-Lee told BBC News he feared that, if the way the internet is used is left to develop unchecked, “bad things” could happen.
So if it ‘develops checked’ then that’s censorship isn’t it?
“Certain undemocratic things could emerge and misinformation will start spreading over the web.”
Those two statements make his view crystal clear – the Internet must be censored. I can’t see how else to read it. ISP’s already censor it by restricting much of usenet (alt.binaries.* to name one hierarchy). Tim says we must not have misinformation and the US will make sure of that because they control ICANN. How positively reassuring.
