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 think it's a commercial issue. Sharing, at least with everyone, is not
complicated using the Web. It was actually built to publish... in a
decentralized way.

I agree that as humans, we're social animals. But what made us
centralize stuff is mostly greed. There is nothing written in stone
saying that we need to centralize the Web to exchange. Actually, my
company, Cozy Cloud, is working on standards that could enable different
systems to privately share things.
