Holding Data Together: Decentralized patterns for stewardship #15
Holding Data Together: Decentralized patterns for stewardship
Formed in the wake of grassroots archiving efforts undertaken in 2017, Data Together seeks to contribute to a civic layer of the internet where communities use decentralized technologies to steward data they care about. Since July 2017, founding partners EDGI, qri.io, and Protocol Labs, have been prototyping open source and decentralized archiving of web pages and data sets using IPFS. Initiatives also include public engagement through in-person events and topical roundtable conversations through online webinars.
This talk will speak to the tensions and successes in our early prototypes and address the values motivating our work.
