WWW daddy tells governments to live his kid alone

Written by Nick Farrell

All in all, you are all just bricks in the wall

WWW inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee has slammed western governments for their use of sweeping Internet surveillance.

He said that their antics are compromising a tool that is “important in people’s survival.” Sir Tim’s comments are in response to the Prism revelations, where both the US’s National Security Agency (NSA) and Britain’s Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) admitted spying on their citizens.

Sir Time said that in the Middle East, people have been given access to the internet but they have been snooped on and then they have been jailed. 

Obviously, it can be easy for people in the West to say, 'oh, those nasty governments should not be allowed access to spy'. But it's clear that developed nations are seriously spying on the net.
