Building a new Web for the entire globe?  What should that look and feel like this time around?

For the decentralized web to succeed it has to provide great user experiences and easy on-ramps that attract, or at least don’t discourage new users from every part of the globe. We cannot rely on new users having knowledge of the benefits of the underlying technology, but rather the features and experiences need to instantly appeal and empower a new generation of users.

This session will begin with a panel that includes UX/UI experts, technologists, and global activists discussing their views on the current state user interface design.  We'll map the future  and potential roadblocks of improving user experiences on the Decentralized Web. The panel will be followed by a brainstorming workshop where the audience can contribute their own ideas to the conversation.
