"This is for everyone."
That was the tweet from Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee which was displayed to the world during the London Olympics opening ceremony.
I spoke to Berners-Lee about his commitment to a World Wide Web that is both open and accessible. Although he defended the removal of unauthorized online video by the International Olympics Committee, he didn't mince words about countries where active online censorship takes place.
Berners-Lee said, "Censorship is generally a bad thing. Weak governments worry they need to control information."
Another step in opening up the web is... Executable English.
It opens up the knowledge in applications so that non-programmers can read, and socially write, self explaining applications.
Google: "Executable English"
