What is it?

Venue: ThoughtWorks, 76 Wardour Street London, W1F 0UR

  • Developers
  • Entrepreneurs

  • Brand & Marketing specialists

Why is this important?

When the web was created, it was open, free and decentralized. Anyone could share information and connect. Now it's home to vast monopolies. Many people's primary internet experience is limited to facebook. Even email runs on proprietary platforms.

We lack genuine choice and the freedom to disagree with their terms and conditions. It is time to push back and build alternatives... and ensure a future with competition, innovation, resilience, open standards and privacy.

Get involved!

Redecentralize Conference is run and organised by a fittingly decentralized group of volunteers.

This year's event is being organised by: @shevski, @thatdavidmiller, @ntoll, @willschiller, @frabcus, @refset, @blaine and @jospoortvliet (so far!)
