Open Source: Keeping the building blocks of the Web open for creativity
Open source should continue to be the heart of the Internet, so we can all see, verify, and contribute to its future.

It’s the infrastructure that makes the Web a truly public resource: transparent, trustworthy, and collaborative, so that anyone with an idea can contribute. But much like our IRL infrastructure, we have to commit the attention and resources to maintain it.
