Published: 17 March 2008

In a 26-minute interview with BBC Technology Correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones, Professor Sir Tim Berners-Lee talks about privacy, Web Science, and the Web's future.

Sir Tim Berners-Lee addressed the Royal Society of Arts last week on Web Science, the subject-matter which forms the core of the Web Science Research Initiative, a joint research collaboration between the School of Electronics and Computer Science at the University of Southampton and the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab at MIT.

Sir Tim is a founder director of WSRI, along with Professor Wendy Hall and Professor Nigel Shadbolt of ECS, and Daniel J Weitzner of MIT.

'The Web is a mass of humanity connected by technology,' he said, adding that it was imperative that systems designers should consider the future development of their systems more carefully.
