Jeffrey Jaffe, CEO of the World Wide Web Consortium Jeff Jaffe is chief executive officer of the World Wide Web Consortium, the Web’s main international standards organization.

The MIT-trained computer scientist, who works with W3C director and Web inventor Berners-Lee, said the Web has far exceeded anything he could have imagined.

“There are very few innovations that changed everything about people’s behavior,” Jaffe said. “But I also think it’s just a start.”

In a future that will continue to struggle with the benefits of a Web that knows about you and the concerns about the Web that might know too much about you, Jaffe also said the Web will continue to alter industries like publishing.

The publishing industry will be the Web and books will be interactive with links to online dictionaries and references.
