The Open Web is evolving and improving as we each can remix existing parts of the Internet into something that is our own decentralized in both architecture and control, ensuring continued choice and diversity built on transparent technologies that anyone can study, use or improve fueled by participation, in ideas, energy or media from more than a billion Internet users
The Internet is increasingly becoming our global commons: a critical public resource over a billion people use every day to learn, innovate, trade, befriend and play. By explaining, protecting and building things around the characteristics of the open Web, Drumbeat can create a better Internet, an Internet that is even richer and more resilient.
The Internet is a global public resource that must remain open and accessible. - Mozilla Manifesto Individuals must have the ability to shape their own experiences on the Internet
We’re building a movement. We want to keep theweb open for the next 100 years Where to start? Everyday web users making and doing things that help the open web Drumbeat’s role: host projects and events that gather smart, creative people around big ideas
It’s the most powerful communicationtool in the history of humanity. The nervous system of trade, education,governance,activism, and play. Lets a single idea achieve global impact. All without needing someone else’s approvalor permission. Open = (Participatory +Transparent + Decentralized + Generative)
But we can’t take the freedom of the web for granted
There are many who would neuter or control the web we have built
Imagine an internet filled with devices you can’ttinker with and walled gardens. What’s at risk? Privacy. Access. The freedom to create and innovate.
