The World Wide Web is thirty years old. Its inventor is worried about how people use it and the future of the Web. People don't know if the Web is "a force for good". It can help billions of people, but we must build a better Internet. The inventor said: "If we give up on building a better Web...we will have failed the Web."

The inventor had three worries about the Web. He called it a "mirror of humanity" where "you will see good and bad". The first worry is behavior like hacking. New laws must keep people safe. A second worry is social media spreading fake news. A final worry is about privacy. It is important to fight for a better, free and safer Web.
