The World Wide Web is thirty years old. Its inventor is concerned about how people are using it. He is concerned about the future of the Web. He wrote that many people weren't sure about if the Web was "a force for good". He thinks it can be and that it can help billions of people. Governments and companies must build a better Internet. He said: "If we give up on building a better Web now, then the Web will not have failed us. We will have failed the Web."

The inventor had three worries about the World Wide Web. He called it a "mirror of humanity" where "you will see good and bad". The first worry was criminal behavior like hacking and harassment. New laws must keep people safe. A second worry is how social media spreads misinformation and fake news. People were tricked during the 2016 US presidential election. A final worry is about privacy. It is important to fight for a better, free and safer Web.
