Tim Berners-Lee says regulation of the web may be needed


I don't think we should be too worried about extra regulation even if TBL thinks we need it. The internet has been about innovation since it's inception ... I doubt if the so-called tech and data giants will maintain their grip for long. Not so long ago there was one dominant OS Windows not now, been a whole heap of dominant search engines Yahoo, Altavista and now Google. The web is about to move to a distributed model which will break up the current monopolies pretty quickly and return a fair bit of privacy also.
