Abstract:

As the Web celebrates 25 years since its first proposal, it is important not only to reflect on how far it has come over the years, but more importantly to determine where it is going.  Its fate, and its value to humanity, is in our hands as we build new capabilities into the technology, and build laws and policies about how it is used or abused.  We must promote the integrity of the Web, its openness, and any person's freedom to use it unimpaired. We need to learn to use its power to collaborate scientifically to solve major problems, to apply democratic and rational principles of governance on a global scale, and nurture new understandings and empathies which bridge national and cultural borders.
