The Guardian reports World Wide Web Consortium Director Tim Berners-Lee has created the "Contract for the Web," an initiative directed at safeguarding the internet and its users from various harms, including privacy violations. The initiative features three principles each for governments, companies and citizens to abide by to achieve internet safety. Microsoft, Google, Facebook and the Electronic Frontier Foundation are among the more than 150 organizations already committed. "We could end up with a digital dystopia if we don’t turn things around. It’s not that we need a 10-year plan for the web, we need to turn the web around now," Berners-Lee said.
