Establishing Digital Third Places in a Person-Centric Local Web
The current World Wide Web is a collection of corporate-centric platforms where people are incentivized to generate and post attention-seeking content. Trust is low, misinformation is prevalent, and the volume is overwhelming. What if we built a high-trust, low-noise, person-centric, Local Web? Let's take a look at how we could build a Local Web of high-trust digital "third places" to serve friends, family, neighbors, and local organizations. We will discuss the values that a Local Web should have and (time permitting) also connect to an example server using standard web browsers.
