Interview with TBL

In this interview Tim Berners-Lee expresses his frustration at the direction the web has taken.

”‘The idea was not that it should just be a big browsing medium,’ he says. ‘Everybody would be putting their ideas in as well as taking them out.’ But this notion, he argues, has often been misconstrued. ‘I wanted to create what I call an interactive space where everybody can edit,’ he says. ‘And I started saying ‘Interactive.’ Then I started reading in the media that ‘The Web is great because it was interactive,’ ‘ meaning, you could click. Now, this was not what I meant by interactivity, so I started calling it intercreativity.’”
Perhaps he’s really thinking of this.
