When the architects of the first World Wide Web and the internet looked into the future, they imagined an open and distributed system, encouraging the free flow of knowledge.  Today, the internet and Web are dominated by a few large players and ISPs; knowledge sits behind paywalls; our online data is neither private or secure.  What lessons would the first builders impart to the DWeb builders of today?  Join us for this rare chance to learn from the giants of the field.
