webπ is about finding a path for the web that reconsiders the mistakes made, and caries the lessons learned forward in a constructive way that acknowledges a clean slate future just erases the damage done.
We'll explore where the web could go from here, the power dynamics that need to shift, the missed opportunities that still need to be addressed. The place the web could and should play for artists and creatives, the place the web should play for beginners, for tinkerers, and explorers.
The web, not as walled gardens, just gardens.
Each issue will explore technologies, proposals, groups, individuals, projects, etc. that align with the core philosophies of webπ, a web that's fun and weird and creative, not a closed frightful place full of abuse, artificial scarcity, and the same continually consolidating power structures.
webπ is for those that still have hope for the web as something freeing and grand and beautiful, not a resource to be exploited at every opportunity.
