Since the inception of the Internet, the world has truly changed. Information is shared freely, communication has vastly improved, and the planet is more connected than ever before. However, today’s Internet faces many challenges. Nearly half of the world remains unconnected despite the UN declaring internet access to be a human right in 2016. Some governments regularly impose Internet restrictions or shutdowns, while others are attempting to create closed-off internets of their own. And the internet today is controlled by less than twenty giant centralized companies that own the majority of web servers and services, and own and profit off of our data. As a result, manipulation, misinformation, and censorship aren’t just possibilities – they’re a reality.
