Happy 30th Birthday WWW


On the 12th March 2019 the World Wide Web (WWW) turned 30. Creator Tim Berners-Lee was interviewed by Rory Cellan-Jones, of the BBC.

During the interview he said that he wanted people on the streets to hold organisations and companies to account, when it came to data privacy and use on the net.

So we took to the streets of Bath to ask people what they want when it comes to personal data use in this digital age. The videos can be seen here.

Thanks to the people of Bath for taking part, even if you didn’t want to appear on camera. The general consensus was transparency, control, no unauthorised sharing, no selling of data, share when necessary for medical research but not outside of the NHS, no profiling for advertising unless you have permission…

Now – join us and tell us what you want – use the hashtag #WhatWeWant and post on our Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn pages, so we can tell Tim Berners-Lee and the World, a collective “What We Want”.
