Although I see Berner-Lee's point, I also feel like it's a position somewhere between the modernist trope of technology saving us and the technooligarchic One Laptop Per Child.  But on the other had, with the disparity between the world's rich and poor widening daily, I can't really be against any initiative that seeks to empower the underclasses in any way.

Not, if this is really true, I am for deprivatizing OSP's and ISP's and making them public utilities.
Say good bye to GoDaddy!  Fine with me!
