For a long time, we've felt that the growing, diverse, global community interested in building the Decentralized Web needed an entry point. A portal into the events, concepts, voices, and resources critical to moving the Decentralized Web forward.
Then at DWeb Camp 2019, designer Iryna Nezhynska of Jolocom led a workshop to imagine what form that portal should take. Over the next 18 months, Iryna steered a dedicated group of DWeb volunteers through a process to create a new entryway into the Decentralized Web. If you are new to the DWeb, it should help you learn about its core concepts. If you are a seasoned coder, it should point you to opportunities nearby. For our nine local nodes, it should be a clearinghouse and archive for past and future events.
Above all, the new website should clearly state the principles we believe in as a community, the values we are trying to build right into the code.
Then John Ryan and Mai Ishikawa Sutton will share the first public version of the Principles of the DWeb, developed in consultation with dozens of community members. You'll have a chance to debate, discuss and dive in to these principles in small groups. These DWeb Principles are a starting point, not an end point--open for iteration.
