We’ve had enough of digital monopolies and surveillance capitalism. We want an alternative world that works for everyone, just like the original intention of the web and net.

We seek a world of open platforms and protocols with real choices of applications and services for people. We care about privacy, transparency and autonomy. Our tools and organisations should fundamentally be accountable and resilient.

I don't *think* it's relevant. Could be wrong though.

This project enables UDP as a replacement for TCP to try and squeeze out some performance gains (TCP provides some reliability checks that UDP doesn't care about and those checks cost time). They'd then run HTTP and HTTPS at the application level as before... IP+UDP+HTTP rather than IP+TCP+HTTP.

I really can't tell, but this might be relevant here.  Can anyone
interpret the short-form intro?
