Decolonizing the Internet 2018

Submitted by syar

A summary report of the July 2018 Decolonizing the Internet conference, a gathering "to discuss and strategize around decolonization, knowledge, and the internet."

From the report summary: "We embarked on this journey by recognizing that the internet and public knowledge do not reflect the knowledge of marginalized communities, which is the knowledge of the majority of the world. Most online public knowledge today still skews towards white, male, and global North knowledge. As a result, we cannot fully see or know each other, our histories, our cultures, our lived experiences. This lack of mutual knowledge is at the root of many crises in our world today. We believe the Internet has the emancipatory potential to change that, but it cannot be realized without significant combined efforts."
