Today, Mozilla is launching the Internet Health Report v.0.1 – an open source research and documentation project about the state of internet health, and we’d love your input!
This initial version of the Internet Health Report is designed to start a conversation. The report unpacks the health of the web across five issues: decentralization, open innovation, online privacy & security, digital inclusion, and web literacy. We chose to focus on these issues because they all have an influence on the social, technical, political and economic shape of the internet, and we’re featuring it on our blog because internet health is so integral to open science. Designed as a way to share academic papers, the internet has been the testing ground for open research and knowledge-share since inception. You can read more in Mark Surman’s blog post announcing the launch.
Our goal is to work with allies across the open Internet movement, to develop a touchstone report that we can all use in our work. That said, the Internet Health Report will only reach full potential with input from you and others who are part of the movement for a healthy, open internet.
