Imagining a Better Online World: Exploring the Decentralized Web
In this series of six workshops, "Imagining a Better Online World: Exploring the Decentralized Web," we'll explore the ways in which moving to decentralized technologies may enhance your privacy, empower you to control your own data, and resist censorship. Join us to hear from experts in the leading peer-to-peer technologies, from identity to data storage. We'll see demonstrations of how decentralized tech is being used in publishing, data management and preserving cultural assets. Learn how the decentralized web might yet create systems that empower individuals by eliminating central points of control.
