Web founder Berners-Lee: Share info, improve the world | Internet & Media – CNET News

He stopped well short of saying information wants to be free, but Tim Berners-Lee, the founder of the World Wide Web, said today the world would be better with some judicious liberation.

Speaking at the 2013 World Economic Forum today in Davos, Switzerland, Berners-Lee called on social-networking sites, academics, musicians, and governments to share more information online.

In earlier days of computing, people had full control over their own information because it was all stored on their own computer in front of them. Now, people store data with online services that deprive them of that control.

“They put their photographs into Flickr. The simplest thing in world, you’d think, would be to share these photos with Facebook friends and LindedIn colleagues. But you can’t do that, because these social networks are a silo,” Berners-Lee said. “There’s a frustration that I’ve told it all my data, but I as a user don’t have access to that.”
