Hi, looking forward to meeting all tomorrow!
Cybersalon.org team would like to discuss engaging Westminster on the legal
framework that is supporting decentralisation.
In conjunction with WebWeWant foundation (Tim Berners-Lee led) we are
consulting on Digital Bill of Rights and one of the core proposition is
increasing the legal support of decentralised Internet economy.
Tom Watson is a signatory of Digital Bill of Rights proposal and a campaign
for cross-party support to bring the Bill to the Parliament in the Spring
is happening now.
We are looking for alternative architectures, business models and best
practice to underpin the report on decentralised Futures.
Aiming for a session around 11am, looking for people to join the team, send
examples or just help us to promote.
See the current draft of the Bill here:
