Tim Berners-Lee, who invented the World Wide Web 25 years ago is now planning to build the next web for open linked data. In this Ted Talk, Berners-Lee introduces the process of creating the World Wide Web in 1980s and he points out that with the highly similar motivation and situation of that time, the research of the next web today is going to be frustrated but revolutionary again. His explanation about the ideas and events about the World Wide Web involves the discussion about the development of Internet, which fits into the concept of some of the readings for this week. In addition, we may be able to imagine the future development of the next web based on his talk.
