What we do

Our main activity is research and development. We also spend some of our time on implementing technological regulation, advocacy, raising awareness, and education.

  1. Research and development.

    Imagine a peer-to-peer web where you own your own home at your own address and where only you have the key to your front door. This is what we’ve been working towards for the last five years.

    Learn more about our research and development.

  2. Technological regulation.

    We reduce the harms of surveillance capitalists by limiting their surveillance capabilities on the centralised web with Better Blocker, our tracker blocker and self-curated tracker database.

  3. Advocacy, raising awareness, and education.

    We advocate for Small Tech as the antidote to Big Tech and surveillance capitalism.

    We give talks, write articles and books, and give media interviews.
