Worum es bei uns geht

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.

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.

Our story has two roots - in Berlin and San Francisco.

Joachim Lohkamp opened our Berlin chapter in September 2014:
“I started the first GET Decentralized (GETD#1) hackathon to bridge the community of change-makers around Ouishare with those of tech. My guts drove me to SF to hold GETD#2 (https://youtu.be/-YgOYjOGZuQ) at the Red Victorian. This is when I met with Wendy and Brewster the very people who shared the same values and had the energy to bing this initiative to a whole level. DWeb was born.”

DWeb San Francisco have their own story (https://decentralizedweb.net/about/).

Both driven primarily by developers and platform makers years ago, in 2019 our groups merged to scale the focus. Today web architects, designers, artists, activists, policymakers and journalists from all over the world gather in Berlin and San Francisco to learn from each other and to co-create infrastructure we can trust.

Are there really fewer women in type design? How comes that Zuzana Licko is more or less the first known female type designer?
