Net Neutrality and the Future of the Web

The term "net neutrality" doesn't unleash a frenzy of emotion, but it's grown into an intense debate over how we access our favorite Web sites. Tim Berners Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web, and David Farber, dubbed the grandfather of the Internet, talk about the two sides of the net neutrality debate and their vision for the future of technology.


Tim Berners Lee, director of the World Wide Web Consortium, an open forum of companies and organizations with the mission to lead the Web to its full potential; senior researcher at MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.

David Farber, distinguished career professor of Computer Science and Public Policy, Carnegie Mellon University.
