For the vast majority of those reading this, a free and open Web is taken as a given. Today, 22 September, is One Web Day – a grass roots celebration of the value that the Web brings to the lives of those who have access to it. OWD offers a chance to reflect on the Web’s challenges and opportunities, as this medium of “humanity connected by technology” grows in size, but also, we hope, grows in accessibility, capability and value. These challenges and opportunities are the primary motivations for the Web Foundation’s mission and work.
Our friends at Mozilla.org suggest a few ways to celebrate.
