Description/Abstract

We take for granted a Web that provides free and unrestricted information exchange, but the Web is under pressure to change in order to respond to issues of security, commerce, criminality, privacy. Web Science needs to explain how the Web impacts society and predict the outcomes of proposed changes to Web infrastructure on business and society. Using the analogy of the Big Bang, this presentation describes how the Web spread the conditions of its initial creation throughout the whole of society as it underwent an initial inflationary phase. Consequently, the assumption of the open exchange of information (found in an academic physics research laboratory) is now being imposed on the rest of society. Do open access, open data, the Scientific and Creative commons offer a beneficial opportunity, or a dangerous cul-de-sac?
