Time has come to build a better Web

Internet’s most famous librarian and an inductee of the Internet Hall of Fame Brewster Kahle, believes that the time has come to build a better Web.

Brewster says, the Internet is no longer either private or secure. So his argument, summarized in a white paper entitled “Locking the Web Open: A Call for a Decentralized Web”, says that we now need to rebuilt the Web to ensure that it guarantees both privacy and security for its users.

The technology now exists, he says, to create websites which can be hosted “everywhere and nowhere”. Finally, he says, we have the technology to build both a genuinely public and commercial Internet which protects rather than exploits its users. And his call is for start-up entrepreneurs to join his mission.
