The man who invented the World Wide Web in 1989, Tim Berners-Lee, says we ought to “rethink” the whole enterprise and stop the spread of “nasty, mean ideas” ( https://www.yahoo.com/news/needs-rethink-stop-nasty-ideas-spreading-says-creator-112424774–finance.html ).
Why do I get the feeling that his definition of “nasty, mean ideas” would be very different from mine?
Mr. Berners-Lee also seems surprised that people are “broadly parochial” and prefer to communicate “with others like themselves.” Who’d of thunk it?
Yo, Tim–have you ever tried to communicate with a ranting left-wing troll? I have. It can’t be done, and trying to do it is a waste of time.
Beware, everybody–there’s a smell of online censorship in the air.
