Tim Berners-Lee Suggests to Split Up Tech Giants
In a recent interview, Tim Berners-Lee remarked that companies such as Facebook and Google have grown too dominant and may need to be broken up.
The father of the World Wide Web said that history dictates that there’s no other alternative but to go in and break things up. However, he cautioned that the speed of innovation in both technology and tastes could ultimately cut some of the biggest technology companies down to size.
Berners-Lee added that before breaking such companies up, it should first be ensured that it is being done to adapt to the shifting of the market and interests, and not just because of disruption by a small player.
