Web 3.0

The Web 3.0 will be the proper uncontrollable internet.

Today more and more websites and social media outlets are becoming sources of de-platforming, media control and data mining for advertising purposes.

De-platforming is when websites are removed from services for using their free speech. The de-platforming can range from technical to monetary suppression and defunding.

Media control can be both government controls and industry controlled interests maybe controlled again behind the scenes by government or other major organisations. In the UK some events are not reported on deliberately and some are suppressed with a D-notice order.

Data mining is performed on personal data to produce an advertising product based on knowledge about you, that pays for your services. Therefore this service becomes indirectly controlled by the businesses that pay for the advertisements and your data.

So now I have created this holding page for links to new web 3.0 services that may break this cycle.

Once broken the Web 3.0 will be a myriad of autonomous sources and services impossible to control but still with ease of use.

To break this cycle, you have to break the control of the full technology and monetary stack either individually or as a organisation.

However as soon as a service is centralised it is at risk at being blocked easily.

So making a start below. Watch this space as I will find more.
