Sir Tim - You must feel SOME responsibility!

I really enjoyed reading the BBC interview with Tim Berners-Lee. But, I was in awe at how Mark Lawson kept trying to get him to say that he felt responsible for the bad elements of the web...

But do you feel responsible? You say humanity will do whatever it does with it, do you feel responsible for what happens?

You must reflect though on the law of unintended consequences because it wasn't remotely ever your intention when you started on this that so much of the web would be given over to sexual exhibitionists masturbating in their bedrooms with webcams. Do you ever have bad moments about that?

And you've never had a sleepless night over that?

 

Could he not come up with anything better? This isn't freaking Oppenheimer.
