WD Apology (8) – My Hero

witchyounground

Part 8 of The Witch Doctor’s apology on behalf of My Black Cat’s recent outburst involves The Witch Doctor contemplating her hero.

The Witch Doctor’s hero is without any doubt Sir Tim Berners-Lee.

If you were Gordon Brown and you wanted some expert advice regarding the government’s use of the internet, then it would be common sense to call upon the expertise of man who invented it.

That is what our PM has done. A world expert, advising the UK government but known globally and accepted globally.

This was announced on 11 June this year.

SIR TIM BERNERS-LEE TO ADVISE THE GOVERNMENT ON PUBLIC INFORMATION DELIVERY

““The Prime Minister has announced the appointment of the man credited with inventing the World Wide Web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee as expert adviser on public information delivery. The announcement was part of a statement on constitutional reform made in the House of Commons this afternoon.

Sir Tim Berners-Lee, who is currently director of the World Wide Web Consortium which overseas the web’s continued development. He will head a panel of experts who will advise the Minister for the Cabinet Office on how government can best use the internet to make non-personal public data as widely available as possible.”

Data sharing features strongly as is looking towards the future:

“Other key areas in which Sir Tim Berners-Lee will advise the Government include :-

(4) Working with the Government to engage with the leading experts internationally working on public data and standards, and to promote international liaison and global standards setting – an investment in future international data sharing.

(5) Helping to drive culture change in Whitehall toward an assumption of total publication for anonymous data using open standards.”

However, the inventor of the World Wide Web will also be working on another matter with, you’ve guessed it – The Media Standards Trust.
