Another main issue is that of privacy. For instance, Google recently launched a system to send advertisements to web users based on their online activities.
While not directly targeting Google, during the 20th anniversary ceremony Berners-Lee warned against systems that can automatically track a web user’s habits and create a detailed profile of the person.
“That sort of snooping is really important to avoid,” he said. “The fact that when information travels across the web it isn’t interfered with, snooped or molested, is very important.”
Several experts have condemned the social interactive sites like Facebook and MySpace for displaying personal information for making users vulnerable to crimes.
According to Berners-Lee, one of the biggest challenges of the web is to avoid privacy pitfalls, by ensuring that information available online is used for the specific purpose that its owner intended or consented to.
