Web inventor says brainchild ready for big leap

CNET "The World Wide Web is on the cusp of making its next big leap to become an open environment for collaboration, and its inventor said he has not been so optimistic in years.
Still, Tim Berners-Lee, the Briton who invented and then gave away the World Wide Web, warns that Internet crime and anticompetitive behavior must be fought tooth and nail.
A lot of new technology is becoming available after many years to make the Web smarter and easier to use, he said.
'My personal view is that a lot of it is coming together now. That is very gratifying to see ... I'm very optimistic at this moment,' Berners-Lee said in a telephone interview ahead of the annual World Wide Web conference, which opens in Edinburgh on Today. "
