Defining it with words
" The open web is made up of four primary ingredients:
•Freedom: built with technology and content that
anyone can study, use or improve.
•Participation: anyone can participate or innovate
without asking permission from others.
•Decentralization: the architecture is distributed
and control is shared by many parties.
•Generativity: we can make new ideas from old
ones. As we use, we also hack and innovate.
