Thinking about the state of the web, 2018 from technical, societal and ethical perspectives. Achievements, setbacks, seemingly intractavle problems, surprisingly positive developments. What are your most notable web developments, positive and negative?

Some ideas on possible ethical principles for the web, shared first with the fediverse:

There is one web
The web is for the betterment of society
The web must support fundamental human rights
The web must enable freedom of expression
The web is for all people
The web must enhance individual agency
People (end users) come first on the web
Accessibility is non-optional
Security & Privacy are non-optional
The web enables individual developers
The web is inspectable
The web must be sustainable
