  1. Keynote: Cory Doctorow: How Stupid Laws and Benevolent Dictators can Ruin the Decentralized Web, too

    Cory Doctorow, is an author, journalist, and Special Advisor at the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

    In this keynote, Cory explains how the people who founded the web with the idea of having an open, decentralized system ended up building a system that is increasingly monopolized by a few companies — and how we can prevent the same things from happening next time.

  2. Closing Remarks: What happens next?

    Brewster Kahle is the founder and Digital Librarian of the Internet Archive, as well as a member of the Internet Hall of Fame.

    The current Web is not private or censorship-free. It lacks a memory, a way to preserve our culture’s digital record through time. The Decentralized Web aims to make the Web open, secure and free of censorship by distributing data, processing, and hosting across millions of computers around the world, with no centralized control.

  3. Panel: As we build a Decentralized Web, what values do we want written in the code?

    Panel: As we build a Decentralized Web, what values do we want written in the code? Moderator: Amber Case

    It’s easy as engineers to concentrate on the code and not on those we are building for. What are the values we should be trying to embed in the code? What are the principles we can agree upon about the way this Web should be governed? We hear from the perspectives of an archivist, an engineer, a researcher and an official of the W3C – to see if there is an alignment around values and the ways to express them through technology.

  4. Keynote Address: Vint Cerf —€“ A Web that Archives Itself

    Vinton Gray "Vint" Cerf is an Internet pioneer, who is recognized as one of "the fathers of the Internet” for his co-invention of TCP/IP. His contributions have been acknowledged and lauded, repeatedly, with honorary degrees and awards that include the National Medal of Technology, the Turing Award, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Marconi Prize, and membership in the National Academy of Engineering. Cerf has worked for Google as a Vice President and Chief Internet Evangelist since October 2005.

    Vint Cerf’s keynote – "A Web that Archives Itself."

    "The Internet Archive has started the process of preserving the WWW but there is an opportunity to refine the design of WWW to create a self-archiving, distributed system. I hope to explore some of the desirable properties of such a self-archiving system from the technical perspective but feel compelled to consider business models that make the process sustainable and affordable. This is clearly more than just a technical problem."
