World Wide Web Foundation

Sir Tim Berners-Lee announced a new World Wide Web Foundation:

To encourage those communities to come together, I am pleased to unveil tonight a new Foundation, the World Wide Web Foundation. The mission of the Foundation is:

* to advance One Web that is free and open,
* to expand the Web’s capability and robustness,
* and to extend the Web’s benefits to all people on the planet.

The Web Foundation will bring together business leaders, technology innovators, academia, government, NGOs, and experts in many fields to tackle challenges that, like the Web, are global in scale. The Web Foundation is in the unique position of being able to learn from the results of projects to accelerate the evolution of the Web.

Why Do We Need Friends?

We need friends for many reasons,
all throughout the season.
We need friends to comfort us
when we are sad,
and to have fun with us when we are glad.

We need friends to give us good advice,
We need someone we can count on,
and treat us nice.

We need friends to remember us
one we have passed sharing memories
that will always last.
Spread the poem of friendship.
