Dear Sir Timothy Berners-Lee

"Let's assemble the brightest minds from business, technology, government, civil society, the arts and academia to tackle the threats to the web's future."

Make sure this panel is not populated with only liberals or libertarians. Make sure you include populists and others who do not drink Silicon Valley Kool-Aid.

Monopolies always develop in a sector without regulation. And people do not always do the right thing, not to mention that there is no consensus on what the right thing is.
