Web panopticon – the values of the internet and current situation

The World Wide Web was in the beginning conceived as a neutral platform for cyber-user community – which at that time were mostly academics users, where code of web pages was still open and accessible to all users. The services and information, which could be still digitally reproduced, were equally available and this was completely free. Apparently things haven’t much changed, but the appearance can be deceive.

We talked to dr. prof. Borka Jerman Blažič about the values of the internet and its current situation.
