Openw3b is creating an ecosystem of open source software and hardware solutions that enables people and organizations to effortlessly self host their data, tools and services on their premises.
We aim to merge the convenience of cloud hosting and cloud services with the assurances of true data ownership.
Openw3b Foundation is a registered not-for-profit organization established in India. We are working towards ensuring privacy, freedom and choice in the digital space by building open source, friendly and sustainable technologies.
Internet has become the most powerful means for connecting with and influencing people in this digital era. Most of the Internet we use is actually run by very few organizations creating a centralized monopoly of data and power that is hard to escape.
Many organizations are exploiting this to make money by keeping us hooked with personalized ads and content. They have enormous control over peoples attention and by virtue of that, their thoughts, emotions and actions too. Some are selling this power to anyone with money to influence people and society.
This has led to catastrophic possibilities in the world such as toxic waste pollution, mental illnesses, election manipulation, capital surveillance, suicides and more. What was meant to be a tool for empowerment is now in many ways enslaving us.
We want to change this.
