The Syracuse iSchool passed this article along to me, and I think it’s pretty cool and useful.
They wanted to define the decentralized web. Here’s what they said: “To better understand this abstract idea and its potential implications, we posed these fundamental questions to the following 25 Web experts.”
The rest of the article includes 25 short definitions of the decentralized web. Included are:
- Jason Griffey: “The term ‘Decentralized Web’ is being used to refer to a series of technologies that replace or augment current communication protocols, networks, and services and distribute them in a way that is robust against single-actor control or censorship.”
- Jake Orlowitz: “A Decentralized Web belongs to all of us: Its power lies in our connections to each other. Its architecture encodes our values; its usage affirms our freedom to collaborate, share, and create.”
