    Tim Berners-Lee was knighted in the UK for his invention
    The web should remain neutral and resist attempts to fragment it into different services, web inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee has said.

    Recent attempts in the US to try to charge for different levels of online access web were not "part of the internet model," he said in Edinburgh.

    He warned that if the US decided to go ahead with a two-tier internet, the network would enter "a dark period".

    Sir Tim was speaking at the start of a conference on the future of the web.

    "What's very important from my point of view is that there is one web," he said.

    "Anyone that tries to chop it into two will find that their piece looks very boring."

    Sounds interesting

    What Sir Tim Bernners Lee had to say sounds very interesting and I think I would have to agree with him that it should remain one web.
