The value of connections

Tim Berners-Lee changed the world, recently. He is credited by Time Magazine and others as the inventer of the World Wide Web. His vision and passion are evident in the TED presentation shown below. His vision is not limited to an innovative way for electronic devices to be connected. His vision extends to the connectivity of minds and the many possible transformations of the world. It often takes years for the knowledge produced by medical research to become applied in actual patient care. We are a society obsessed with the possession, protection and ownership of data, information and knowledge. It is a rare person who puts contribution before self enrichment. The coming revolutions in healthcare will largely be based upon the values of people like Tim Berners-Lee.
