Careful with that WWW, U-Gene


Thanks to Alan Watt for discussing and posting this HIGHLY interesting article from the BBC which quotes CERN & World Wide Web (666) WHITE KNIGHT Sir Tim Berners-Lee.

Sir Tim told BBC News that there needed to be new systems that would give websites a label for trustworthiness once they had been proved reliable sources.

"On the web the thinking of cults can spread very rapidly and suddenly a cult which was 12 people who had some deep personal issues suddenly find a formula which is very believable," he said. "A sort of conspiracy theory of sorts and which you can imagine spreading to thousands of people and being deeply damaging."

Sounds wonderful, no? Accredited websites for those who follow the agenda...guess it might make knowing who's who a little easier though...not much room for synchromysticism...unless, ummm, hmmm?
