Interesting article in the Telegraph this morning about Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the modest creator of the web:
He seems to see the best way forward for the web as a middle path between what he calls 'cultural potholes', where people can fall into very limiting dark virtual worlds focused on one blinkered hobby-horse, and a bland global world of (here it comes again...) McDonald's English.
For him the key is 'interconnected communities'. Yet another example of how important it is to be able to bridge different worlds, while maintaining our own identity.
