Creating browser extensions provides an easy and accessible way for people to express their vision for the internet they want. This is important because, for the Decentralized Web to be a truly democratized and viable alternative to today’s web, there needs to be equal access and participation in its conception, creation and usage. One way to foster this equality is to remove barriers for less technical folk and to provide a way for their ideas to be heard. This workshop will explore building browser extensions as an exercise in speculating on a better web.

This workshop is about learning how to build a simple browser extension but also about reimagining the place(s) our data lives and how we want it presented. We're going to build a browser extension that allows you to create your own zone for your data and then you're going to design it as you see fit.

Bring your laptops (and your imagination)
