●World Wide Web – too full of misinfomation [ie loads of old twottle & rubbish] so says creator of www://Tim Berners-Lee [Sir]

Some feared that firing up the LHC [Large Hadron Collider] would create a black hole and/or doom the Earth

The internet needs a way to help people separate rumour from real science, says the creator of the World Wide Web. [heard on BBC world radio this morning – in the news]

Talking to BBC News Sir Tim Berners-Lee said he was increasingly worried about the way the web has been used to spread disinformation.

VIVA! Tim Berners-Lee VIVA!
A debt of gratitude goes out to you, Tim Berners-Lee!

If you didn’t know who this man was you’d never guess that he is one of THE super geeks – I believe he developed the web when he was working at CERN, where the Large Hadron Collider lab is. He came up with the www so that all the scientists could communicate with each other. [This could be a load of old rubbish of course]
need to check – now where do i go to check this?…………
