DWeb is a series of events driven by local communities of developers, designers, information architects, activists, policymakers and journalists toward a global goal - building the web we deserve.
Mission We want to build the web that… … remembers and forgets. … is a marketplace and a public square, but also is a safe private space. … has many winners.
The Web we use today is not private, reliable or free from censorship. It lacks a memory, a way to preserve our digital record through time. Decentralization offers security. By distributing data, processing and hosting across millions of computers worldwide with no centralized control, a new Decentralized Web has the potential to be open, empowering users around the globe to control and protect their own personal data better than before.
DWeb Boston was started to help bring the Boston community into the global effort of helping the Web reach its full potential.
