World Wide Web is now thirty years old. Its inventor, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, has spoken about his creation on its 30th anniversary. He said he was worried about how people are using Internet and its two billion websites today. He also said he is concerned about future of Web. He wrote letter saying he knew many people felt unsure about whether the Web was " force for good". He believes it can be force for good and can empower billions of people. He wrote that he believed governments and companies must work together to build better Internet. He said: "If we give up on building better Web now, then the Web will not have failed us. We will have failed Web."

Sir Tim had three main concerns about World Wide Web. The first was criminal behavior, like state-sponsored hacking and online harassment. He described it as "mirror of humanity" where "you will see good and bad". He said governments must pass laws to keep people safe. second thing that worried Berners-Lee is how social media is used to spread misinformation. past few years have seen rise in fake news. In particular, how people were tricked during 2016 US presidential election and UK Brexit vote. Berners-Lee is also worried about people's privacy and personal information. He stressed importance of fighting for better and safer Web and keeping it free for everyone to use.
