DWeb Camp 2019 Organizing
How do we build a better Web? The Web we want, the Web we deserve? A Web with no central points of control?
Since 2016, we’ve been calling this the Decentralized Web (DWeb for short) and now the Internet Archive is inviting everyone who wants to imagine and co-create that better Web to join us this summer at one of the most beautiful spots on Earth.
After you have registered, here are some handy pages for coordinating logistics:
Rideshare page for people looking to offer/need rides to and from Camp. If you have 3 people in your car, parking is free. Look for the tabs at the bottom for each day.
If you'd be interested in paying for a bus that picks up at Oakland BART and the Internet Archive (300 Funston Ave, SF) and takes you to Camp and back. The roundtrip fare is approximately $50.
The Internet Archive wants to invite you to build DWeb Camp together!
|Space Steward||Help guide and support activities in specific venues around the camp|

Open Dialogue Calls
These are one hour-long public video calls for you to ask us logistical questions, bounce your project ideas off of us (and each other!), and maybe even find other collaborators to work on a project.
