Very wise advice from a very wise man.

Very wise man indeed, so why not give him his title? He has been knighted. Usually he's referred to as Sir Tim Berners-Lee.

The 21st century is about connectivity to every human being, you know me and i know you, i think there is no problem about it on transparency as long you have no hidden bad agenda or somethings bad. Only those people with insecurity and reservation to others people have still little demon in his mind and with possibility to hard other people in the future.

I thought Al Gore invented the internet.

Berners-Lee certainly did invent the www, but he never knew how to become a super rich tycoon from the web such as Gates or Jobs.

I thought Al Gore invented the internet.

Al Gore invented the warning on global warming. And nobody listened.

Al Gore invented the warning on global warming. And nobody listened.

The hot air coming out of Gore's mouth just might be the real cause of global warming!

"I thought Al Gore invented the internet."

"No one (Al Gore) in public life has been more intellectually engaged in helping to create the climate for a thriving Internet than the Vice President."

Joint statement by Vince Cert and Bob Kahn, known as the fathers of internet for inventing TCP and IP protocols, reaffirming Gore's comment, which Gore's critics had taken out of context and which he actually said he "took the initiative" in the internet's creation.

Why do we have curtains on our windows ? Why would that be ? Aren't some things private ? Yet the silly line of reasoning we hear is that if you have nothing to hide then why be worried what's out there on the internet about each of us. The internet is no different to the physical world in that some things are PRIVATE.

If you really believe that, why aren't you posting under your real name? And why not post your address as well? Why not have cameras in every room of your house, 24/7? This is the kind of society run by Dr. Benway in William Burroughs' Naked Lunch.
