The Web is imagined to provide a global, public role in the dissemination of knowledge and communication between individuals and there are many examples of the Web being used by a variety of 'publics' as a mechanism for independently achieving their political, cultural and social goals. But beliefs about the benefits of the public web have co-evolved with the technological infrastructure of the Web, from a public information dissemination service to a shared participatory space, to a data trading environment. Powerful Web stakeholders (governments, ISPs, platform owners) have focused the governance debate on economic, political and security. The future of the Web needs to readdress the balance preserving the "public good" of the "public web".Copyright is held by the owner/author(s).
