[IDG] The World Wide Web Foundation, Tim Berners-Lee's latest brainchild, is now officially open for business and involved with two initial projects, as it embarks on using the Web to empower people worldwide and bring about positive socio-economic change.
Berners-Lee, the Web's inventor and founder of the World Wide Web Foundation, will make the announcement on Sunday at the 2009 Internet Governance Forum in Egypt.
"We're not focusing on the technology of the Web itself, but on what the technology can do to help people improve their situations, create new opportunities, new businesses, attend to their families' health needs, [improve] education, even good governance," said Steve Bratt, CEO of the World Wide Web Foundation, in an interview.
