Berners-Lee's web warning

The inventor of the World Wide Web reckons our digital economy risks being left behind as the internet marches to the future.

Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of what became the World Wide Web, landed on our shores recently and amid a flurry of keynotes, the web pioneer managed to offer some food for thought  on where Australia fits in the future of the internet.
