A contract for the web
The goal of this website is to bring governments, citizens, companies and organisations together that agree with the principle of an open, free, privacy-friendly internet and want to engage in a deliberative process to make a formal social contract for the internet.
I think the Pirate Party should be part of this initiative and I propose we sign the principles, eventhough it's a bit late in the process. By signing, this is what we commit to:
"At this stage we have a set of 9 high level principles which we see as guiding stars towards building a full Contract for the web.
By signing up to these Principles, you agree that these 9 Principles are a reasonable starting point for a conversation regarding these issues.
Signatories to the Principles commit to engaging in the deliberative process towards shaping what these commitments will be.
We acknowledge different stakeholders have different capacity to engage, and have created a process that tries to accommodate for these needs and provides different engagement opportunities. We believe that since the web is for everyone, everyone should have the opportunity to engage in shaping the Contract.
Once the Contract is finalised, there will be a new process for companies, governments, CSOs and citizens to sign up to a set of more prescriptive requirements."
The 9 principle can be found on the landing page of the website: https://contractfortheweb.org/
