The Inventor of the World Wide Web:
New Initiative - “The Web We Want”

Tim Berners-Lee, the man credited with creating the “world wide web”
(www) in 1989, and an advisor to the UK government, has called for
an “
Internet User’s Bill of Rights” (IUBR) to protect user’s rights
and prevent influence by governments and corporations.

World wide web inventor Tim Berners-Lee:
'Establish web's principles of openness and privacy'

Berners-Lee said this IUBR would be a Magna Carta of sorts to ensure
that the Internet remains
“accessible to all, from any device,
and one that empowers all of us to achieve our dignity,
rights and potential as humans.”

Berners-Lee Calls for Bill of Rights for Web

Exclusive: web's inventor warns neutrality under sustained attack
from governments and corporations

The inventor of the world wide web believes an online "Magna Carta" is needed to protect and enshrine the independence of the medium he created and the rights of its users worldwide.

Tim Berners-Lee told the Guardian the web had come under increasing attack from governments and corporate influence and that new rules were needed to protect the "open, neutral" system.
Speaking exactly 25 years after he wrote the first draft of the first proposal for what would become the world wide web, the computer scientist said:

                              "We need a global constitution - a bill of rights."

Berners-Lee's Magna Carta plan is to be taken up
as part of an initiative called "the web we want", which calls on people to generate a digital bill of rights in each country - a statement of principles he hopes will be supported by public institutions, government officials and corporations.

"Unless we have an open, neutral internet we can rely on without worrying about what's happening at the back door, we can't have open government, good democracy, good healthcare, connected communities and diversity of culture. It's not naive to think we can have that, but it is naive to think we can just sit back and get it."

"The key thing is getting people to fight for the web and to see the harm that a fractured web would bring. Like any human system, the web needs policing and of course we need national laws, but we must not turn the network into a series of national silos."

Berners-Lee also starred in the London 2012 Olympics, typing the words "this is for everyone" on a computer in the centre of the arena. He has stuck firmly to the principle of openness, inclusivity and democracy since he invented the web in 1989, choosing not to commercialize his model. Rejecting the idea that government and commercial control of such a powerful medium was inevitable, Berners-Lee said it would be impossible: "Not until they pry the keyboards from our cold, dead fingers."

Creator of the web: "Free to use for everyone."

<cut for brevity>
The web was first open to new users in 1991, and in 1992, the first browser was created to scan and select the millions of documents which already existed.
Although the web has seen the creation and loss of countless fortunes, Berners-Lee and his team ensured that it was free to use for everyone. Berners-Lee now works through various organizations to ensure that the web is accessible to all and that the concept of the neutrality of the net is observed by governments and corporations.

Upgrading the Bill of Rights for Global TeLeComm

The Five Core Constitutional Freedoms
for the
United Sovereigns of Earth.

If we get this right - for global US - all the other universal rights for global self-governance
will naturally follow with common sense "Unity Conscience" (co-Operative co-Creation).

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,
or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom
of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably
to assemble, and to petition the Government for a
of grievances."

redress v. 1. To set right, remedy or rectify. 2. To make amends for.
1. Satisfaction for wrong done; reparation.  2. Correction.
[<OFr. redresser.]

The Bill of Rights, succinctly expressed in the Constitution's First Amendment above,
 was to prevent any decrease in universal sovereign rights by government.

This is what global Netizens love about our sovereign rights.
And it's what good American citizens have always loved.

The common sense of this noble vision gave birth to the
best model for public self-governance in world history
"If we can keep it"... as wise old Ben Franklin said.

  This is the challenge facing humanity now.
 We can 'upgrade' with global
   to optimize our healing, peace and civility,
 our by default, our self-destructive habits
profit from dis-ease, war and devolution. 

There is nothing more valuable that this vision of
core virtues at the heart of e-valuation criteria
for upgrading the concept of 'representation'
(voting) with real-time, instant-everywhere
and interactive local-global TeLeComm;
the 'Family of Man' in a global village.

"It is at all times necessary,
and more particularly so during the progress of a revolution
and until right ideas confirm themselves by habit,
that we frequently refresh our patriotism by reference to
First Principles".
- by Thomas Paine who sparked the American Revolution with COMMON SENSE,
the most successful pamphlet in history whose name and
flame are the same

 Freedoms of Assembly, Speech, Press, Religion
and the Right to Petition Government for a
response able redress of grievances.

These are the core Constitutional freedoms for a self-governing process as is designed
to empower public wisdom at the
heart of
universal common law "symbol language"

in the public sphere-

that provide components to the "CAPstone" (Creative Ascent Process)

TeLeComm VISION with heart
coherence and mind congruence regarding
     'The Constitution of Conscience':

(web 3.0)

The revival of core Constitutional freedoms
will naturally
involve and evolve sovereignty with self-evident, self-correcting VIRTUES
for our self-regulating and self-governing
self-elevation (read 'salvation') of, by and
for all of "
US" (United Sovereigns of Earth).

Common sense today honors this vision of
virtue and valor with the vow for victory in
global village Net reality as can now define, refine, combine and 'shine' capabilities of the instant-everywhere-interactive Internet
with interactive response ability to culture
Conscience at the heart of social networks.
