Ban auto-play video, please

Web creator Tim Berners-Lee on taking back control of the Web:

“We must work together with web companies to strike a balance that puts a fair level of data control back in the hands of people, including the development of new technology such as personal ‘data pods’ if needed and exploring alternative revenue models such as subscriptions and micropayments.”

That’s just for a start. But nowhere on his list do I see banning auto-play video, which I would think would be a necessary first step to getting back our control of data.

  1. I’d rather they just kept their fingers out of the internet. Let consumers versus ad companies fight it out, like radar detectors vs cops.
