A new open source initiative to document and explain what’s happening to the health of the Internet. Combining research from multiple sources, we collect data on five key topics and offer a brief overview of each

How do we measure Internet health?
Five topics:

  • Open Innovation
  • Digital Inclusion
  • Decentralization
  • Privacy & Security
  • Web Literacy

Open Innovation

“Open” means that anyone can publish or invent online without asking for permission, and that the technologies used to run the Web are transparent and understandable

Digital Inclusion

Everyone deserves equal opportunity to access the Internet, and to use it to improve their lives and societies

Decentralization

Decentralization means the Internet is controlled by many. It’s millions of devices linked together in an open network. No one actor can own it, control it, or switch it off for everyone

Privacy & Security

Webliteracy

We need everyone to have the skills to read, write and participate in the digital world, so more people can move beyond consuming to actually creating, shaping and defending the Web

Open Innovation

Prognosis

Open innovation on the Internet is threatened by bad policies, the devaluation of common standards, and the fragmentation of the global Internet.

Digital Inclusion

Prognosis

The obstacles in the way of making the Internet accessible and welcoming for all are numerous, and won’t be overcome by waiting.

Decentralization

Prognosis

The decentralized Web is thriving by some measures, but we are heading towards a future of vertically integrated silos controlled by a few large players.

Privacy & Security

Prognosis

The Internet depends on the security and trust of its users to function in a healthy way. We need to push governments and software makers to ensure that they do.

Webliteracy

Prognosis

If we don’t act, we will end up with an Internet where most people remain passive, online consumers rather than active participants and creators.

On April 10, 2018 we’re launching the first full version of the report!
