+ 301 The Mobile Web Initiative is important - information must be made seamlessly available on any device. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 283 Anyone who has lost track of time when using a computer knows the propensity to dream, the urge to make dreams come true and the tendency to miss lunch. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 264 You affect the world by what you browse. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 267 Data is a precious thing and will last longer than the systems themselves. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 224 Celebrity damages private life. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 257 Data is a precious thing and will last longer than the systems themselves. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 318 When it comes to professionalism, it makes sense to talk about being professional in IT. Standards are vital so that IT professionals can provide systems that last. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 324 Any good software engineer will tell you that a compiler and an interpreter are interchangeable. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 367 I think IT projects are about supporting social systems - about communications between people and machines. They tend to fail due to cultural issues. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 273 Physicists analyze systems. Web scientists, however, can create the systems. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 284 We need diversity of thought in the world to face the new challenges. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 302 Web users ultimately want to get at data quickly and easily. They don't care as much about attractive sites and pretty design. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 280 Whatever the device you use for getting your information out, it should be the same information. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 297 Customers need to be given control of their own data-not being tied into a certain manufacturer so that when there are problems they are always obliged to go back to them. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 329 I don't know whether machine translation will eventually get good enough to allow us to browse people's websites in different languages so you can see how they live in different countries. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 280 Compared even to the development of the phone or TV, the Web developed very quickly. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 253 Everybody who runs a Web site knows we're not assured of compatibility, and we could end up with a split. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 262 I basically wrote the code and the specs and documentation for how the client and server talked to each other. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 263 I have built a moat around myself, along with ways over that moat so that people can ask questions. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 340 I hope we will use the Net to cross barriers and connect cultures. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 274 I suppose it's amazing when you think how many things people get involved in that don't work. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 261 I think when you have a lot of jumbled up ideas they come together slowly over a period of several years. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 268 I'm an optimist about humanity in general, I suppose. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 277 If you are not on the web, you will have problems accessing services. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 284 In many ways, people growing up with the Web and now the Semantic Web take the power at their fingertips for granted. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 323 It was really hard explaining the Web before people just got used to it because they didn't even have words like click and jump and page. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 268 It's amazing how quickly people on the internet can pick something up, but it's also amazing how quickly they can drop it. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 272 It's difficult to imagine the power that you're going to have when so many different sorts of data are available. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 294 It's interesting that people throughout the existence of the web have been concerned about monopolies. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 286 Most larger companies now see that for the market to grow, Web infrastructure must be royalty-free. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 257 One of the issues of social networking silos is that they have the data and I don't. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 250 Sites need to be able to interact in one single, universal space. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 264 That idea of URL was the basic clue to the universality of the Web. That was the only thing I insisted upon. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 272 The amount of control you have over somebody if you can monitor internet activity is amazing. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 314 The Domain Name Server (DNS) is the Achilles heel of the Web. The important thing is that it's managed responsibly. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 251 The important thing is the diversity available on the Web. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 280 The original idea of the web was that it should be a collaborative space where you can communicate through sharing information. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 262 The people who designed the tools that make the Net run had their own ideas for the future. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 264 The Web as I envisaged it, we have not seen it yet. The future is still so much bigger than the past. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 256 The Web is now philosophical engineering. Physics and the Web are both about the relationship between the small and the large. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 287 There was a time when people felt the internet was another world, but now people realise it's a tool that we use in this world. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 233 Things can change so fast on the internet. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 280 We can't blame the technology when we make mistakes. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 249 Web pages are designed for people. For the Semantic Web, we need to look at existing databases. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 245 What I do has to be a function of what I can do, not a function of what people ask me to do. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 281 When something is such a creative medium as the web, the limits to it are our imagination. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 298 When you go onto the internet, if you really rummage around randomly then how do you hope to find something of any of value? Tim Berners-Lee


+ 368 The Semantic Web is not a separate Web but an extension of the current one, in which information is given well-defined meaning, better enabling computers and people to work in cooperation. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 339 We could say we want the Web to reflect a vision of the world where everything is done democratically. To do that, we get computers to talk with each other in such a way as to promote that ideal. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 318 Any enterprise CEO really ought to be able to ask a question that involves connecting data across the organization, be able to run a company effectively, and especially to be able to respond to unexpected events. Most organizations are missing this ability to connect all the data together. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 341 I don't mind being, in the public context, referred to as the inventor of the World Wide Web. What I like is that image to be separate from private life, because celebrity damages private life. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 309 I myself feel that it is very important that my ISP supplies internet to my house like the water company supplies water to my house. It supplies connectivity with no strings attached. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 317 I should be able to pick which applications I use for managing my life, I should be able to pick which content I look at, and I should be able to pick which device I use, which company I use for supplying my internet, and I'd like those to be independent choices. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 362 I want to know if I look up a whole lot of books about some form of cancer that that's not going to get to my insurance company and I'm going to find my insurance premium is going to go up by 5% because they've figured I'm looking at those books. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 323 I'm not a fan of giving a website a simple number like an IQ rating because like people they can vary in all kinds of different ways. So I'd be interested in different organisations labelling websites in different ways. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 295 I'm very aware there are lots of other people who are just bright and working just as hard, with just the same dedication to make the world a good place. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 373 Imagine that everything you are typing is being read by the person you are applying to for your first job. Imagine that it's all going to be seen by your parents and your grandparents and your grandchildren as well. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 317 Intellectual property is an important legal and cultural issue. Society as a whole has complex issues to face here: private ownership vs. open source, and so on. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 359 IT professionals have a responsibility to understand the use of standards and the importance of making Web applications that work with any kind of device. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 311 My own personal preference is that the consumer, the individual person should be protected because individual people and the difference between individual people and the diversity we have between people on the planet is so important. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 317 On the web the thinking of cults can spread very rapidly and suddenly a cult which was 12 people who had some deep personal issues suddenly find a formula which is very believable. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 358 One of the things I like about the computer that I use is that I can write a program on it or I can download a program on to it and run it. That's kind of important to me, and that's also kind of important to the whole future of the internet... obviously a closed platform is a serious brake on innovation. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 340 One way to think about the magnitude of the changes to come is to think about how you went about your business before powerful Web search engines. You probably wouldn't have imagined that a world of answers would be available to you in under a second. The next set of advances will have an different effect, but similar in magnitude. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 309 The challenge is to manage the Web in an open way-not too much bureaucracy, not subject to political or commercial pressures. The U.S. should demonstrate that it is prepared to share control with the world. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 341 The Google algorithm was a significant development. I've had thank-you emails from people whose lives have been saved by information on a medical website or who have found the love of their life on a dating website. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 323 The most important thing that was new was the idea of URI-or URL, that any piece of information anywhere should have an identifier, which will allow you to get hold of it. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 291 The Semantic Web isn't inherently complex. The Semantic Web language, at its heart, is very, very simple. It's just about the relationships between things. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 328 What is a Web year now, about three months? And when people can browse around, discover new things, and download them fast, when we all have agents - then Web years could slip by before human beings can notice. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 335 The Mobile Web Initiative is important - information must be made seamlessly available on any device. Tim Berners-Lee


+ 208 Innovation is serendipity, so you don't know what people will make. Tim Berners-Lee
