Studying the Web

Excerpts from the interview of Tim Berners Lee on Studying the Web:
"'The whole idea of the original Web was social, but what we have created is a microscopic infrastructure where the little things themselves are not quite sufficient in understanding the big things,' Berners-Lee said yesterday at a press conference announcing the Web Science Research Initiative (WSRI), a new project that will produce the tools for better understanding the Web and garner insight from the results. 'We have a duty to understand all the beautiful, wonderful things we are producing and make them better,' said Berners-Lee who also is director of the World Wide Web Consortium, researcher at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and a professor at the University of Southampton. This collaborative research project will create a new Web-science curriculum at the University of Southampton and at MIT."
