Berners-Lee Warns Against Fragmenting Internet

Citing threats from all the big players in the telecom space -- carriers, social networking sites and search engine operators -- Berners-Lee made his case in a new Scientific American article for Internet users to realize their control over the medium and protect it from commercial interests that could undermine its freedom.
