"Berners-Lee has been outspoken on net neutrality, and at MIT
warned against ISPs having too much control over how we use the
Web. Berners-Lee also touched on smartphones, repeating his stance
that it is better to develop Web apps that run on mobile devices
than to create apps that circumvent the open Web.
"He also said it's important for the Web not to simply become an
instrument to spread unfounded rumors and conspiracy theories. One
of his goals is to make the Web a system in which scientists can
share data and information more effectively.
"The Web has grown so large that the number of Web pages rivals
the number of neurons in a human brain, Berners-Lee said. And the
Web must be analyzed, just as we analyze the brain."
