World Wide Web Founder Sir Tim Berners-Lee Advocates WWW Bill of Rights

BBC News reports that Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the founder of the World Wide Web, is advocating that the World Wide Web needs a bill of rights.

Who knows, perhaps such a WWW Bill of Rights will one day be promulgated, but in our opinion the attendant desire for "no government surveillance" has virtually no chance of success.

Not only are law and order an essential part of modern society, but nations and governments in our digital world can only achieve national security by making maximum use of state-of-the-art technology, and this means surveillance.

Government surveillance will surely remain in spite of all protests -- but your average citizen has little to fear, unless he or she is engaged in illegal activity.

Like it or not, the fact is that your average person is not of great interest to the powers that be. Hence, a lot of the noise about government surveillance is just that...noise.
