3 dark trends that could destroy the web - Tim Berners-Lee
Today marks 28 years since I submitted my original proposal for the world wide web.
The Governance on the Internet project, launched by the World Economic Forum in 2015, is a multi-year engagement with the main objective of considering the new governance mechanisms needed to adapt to the increasingly global nature of the internet while maintaining the cultural norms and values of certain regions and nations. In 2015, the project was divided into two major workstreams: 1) drafting an overview report about various forms of internet fragmentation and 2) developing national digital strategies. For 2016, the project will be divided into further workstreams:
- Digital Trade (co-led with Trade Global Challenge Team)
- Internet Fragmentation & Interoperability
- Country Digital Strategies
- Internet Monitor
- Government 4.0
