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.

Torbjorn – cool project. The hardest part of any initiative like this is to get user adoption. Why will the average content producer put their video on your site vs. YouTube which is easier and has all the viewers and name recognition? That's the hardest part of a project like this.

It's not all about the tech – in fact, if WebTorrent is working correctly, the user won't even be able to tell that the video is P2P vs. HTTP. What actually matters much more is: 1) the quality of the product, 2) the user experience, and 3) the marketing. I think all people working on P2P tech should get this tattooed on their knuckles so they remember to not spend all their time on coding :)

Anish – the underlying WebTorrent project is open source. See here: https://github.com/feross/webtorrent
