Locking the Web open: A decentralized web that can operate as free software does

Brewster Kahle


30 years after the World Wide Web was created, can we now make it better? How can we ensure that our most important values -- privacy, free speech, and free access to knowledge -- are enshrined in the code itself? In a provocative call to action, entrepreneur and libre Internet advocate Brewster Kahle challenges us to build a better, decentralized Web based on new distributed technologies. Web site content and code could be served peer-to-peer, with decentralized pseudonymous identity, and even payment models. What a world it could be! He lays out a path to creating a new Web that is reliable, private, but still fun -- in order to lock the Web open for good.
