Can We Save the Open Web?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The internet was founded on the principle that information should be open -- that everyone can build together. But we’ve come a long way in how the web looks and operates. Even as millions of websites and billions of people have come online, access to content is increasingly controlled by a handful of powerful corporations like Google, Facebook and Apple. These giants collect and silo our data, leading to questions about users’ privacy, consent and access.

Is the vision of an open web losing to big names? Can we defend the open web and save it for the future? Join me for a discussion about the web’s evolution and how we can put the power of the internet back into the hands of the people.
