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.
