The tech industry grew organically the last few decades. We built new innovations on top of old. We evolved systems and technologies to meet new challenges. Decisions of the past became assumptions of today.
But what if we pause to check those assumptions? What if we disentangle the systems and re-architect them with new priorities, such as privacy-first and user-centricity? We’ll explore what that could look like: an alternative architecture and ecosystem, where industry-wide decentralized data ownership is the prime directive. We’ll then dig deeper to see what you can do today with emerging technologies that align with privacy-first design.
