Since its inception, Sir Tim Berner's Lee has been a proponent of the free and open nature of the web, and has often warned against complacency in protecting it.
The british physicist, who had imagined in 1989, "system for decentralized management of information" became the birth of the "web", has just launched Inrupt, a start-up company responsible for pooling the efforts of programmers who seek to make users in control of their data.

Interestingly, big tech such as Facebook, despite signing the contract, have actioned against the contract.
Roya Mahboob, founder of the Afghan Girls Robotics Club, said: "The contract for the web comes at a ideal time for women and girls around the world to speak truth to power, call out injustice and seize new opportunities".
