The dweb, or decentralized/distributed web is meant to be an internet where the many control how they connect with each other rather than a few.
It would be one where people don’t have to worry about surveillance, censorship, or being treated as property, and would better support us organizing towards a collectively prosperous future.
What kind of projects are building toward this? How much work needs to be done? Most importantly, how will these projects benefit those of us that have been marginalized and oppressed, if at all?
We will spend some time talking about the distributed web, it’s theoretical and realized implications for the world, and then learn to build a website with the Dat Protocol and Beaker Browser.
No experience necessary. People skeptical, inexperienced, or unfamiliar with computer tech are especially welcome.
