Tim Berners-Lee says too many young people are excluded from web

In a letter published to mark the 32nd birthday of the web, its founder Tim Berners-Lee has said that many young people around the world are excluded from accessing the web. Berners-Lee argues that aiming to connect every young person in the world to the web would reap dividends. He estimates an investment of $428B over the next decade would provide everyone with a quality broadband connection.

Old man doesn't even know what the web is or how damaging it can be to young minds. If someone can't afford to get online - when many in the poorest countries still can, mind you - then they're probably not savvy enough to avoid garbage like social media or other horrible things online. Or is this to get Amazon sold to more households?
