The Web we want cannot be built from code alone. At its best, it is informed by the myriad human stories and needs expressed around the world today.

In Stories From The Field, we invite allies from around the globe to reflect on the places, people, and moments they have encountered that inspire them build towards a more equitable and secure world. Together, we will travel through Iran, Pakistan, Ecuador, Kenya, and beyond on a journey to better understand the "why" behind decentralization: why it is necessary, why it is urgent, and why we must create it together?
