Art Installation: "Privacy Policy" by someguy
Made out of tech company t-shirts, this piece is intended to spark conversation and debate about the true cost of free products, and what we give up when we click the “I agree” button without reading the privacy policy.

Too often, we trade our privacy for convenience without fully understanding how our data is being used or sold. At least, I do, all the time. The intent is not to demonize a specific company, rather, to illustrate the normalization of a system where every move we make is being tracked, and our data is sold to the highest bidder.

Session Rundown
There will be a small table designated for the Postcards for Peers activity. People can bring postcards, postage stamps, and names and addresses of people to send a postcard to. During the camp, people can come fill out the postcards - addressing new ones, or adding to existing ones - write notes, draw pictures, or just sign their name. At the end of the camp, the facilitator takes the completed postcards and mails them. (Or some participants could take some to hand-deliver them).

Orientation: Communicate through Matrix
At a DWeb Camp, we should have decentralized communication tools, right?
That's where Matrix comes in.

Matrix is an open protocol and global network for decentralised, secure communication. Its mission is to democratise communication - letting users choose which apps and services they use to chat without sacrificing who they can talk to. Today Matrix has over 8M users on the network and over 20K deployments, ranging from one-person servers through to Governments (France, UK, US, Germany) and universities (Holland).

Matrix's latest deployment: as the official decentralized communication system for DWeb Camp, running on the Mesh network, apart from any internet provider.

Come learn how to use Matrix to communicate with everyone on the Farm!

Also deliciously refreshing with soda water over ice. Bring your creativity and cocktail recipes as we'll be serving the following (while supplies last):

Microscope: A Collaborative Game of Historic Proportions
Microscope is a diceless role-playing/world-building game in which 3-5 players all work together collaboratively to create a history of some setting, which can be anything in their imagination. Want to invent the rise and fall of a magic-heavy fantasy empire? The slow death of interstellar travel for a human-settled galaxy? The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck, gritty apocalypse version? Absolutely anything goes. The actual mechanics of the game involve a timeline made of index cards, which the players add one at a time, non-chronologically (meaning, you can lay down the end of a civilization first, then decide how it started later).
Join this fun and creative exercise, meet new friends, explore new worlds!

Hopes & Dreams
Encourage people's imagination, teamwork, maybe a bit of role-playing, and most importantly, HAVE FUN!

Participation
I find that the game is only really feasible with up to 4 or 5 players. No gaming experience necessary, and just about any age range over 12 is okay.

Why Participate?
If you've ever wanted to tell epic stories about an imaginative world, Microscope will be hours of fun for you.

Group Game: ASSASSIN!

You can run but you cannot hide! You'll need all your ninja skills and senses to survive and win this enormous group game of Assassin!  The first 200 Campers who elect to play will be a part of this retreat-long game.  Winners will win some fun prizes, but the real reward is getting to know your fellow Campers in an entirely new way.  Intrigued?  Read on....

"Assassin" Game Rules:
Once arrived, everyone who is present and participating will be given a small rubber duck (about 2 inches big), and assigned the name of a Target to eliminate. This duck acts as both a weapon and a shield. The goal of the game is to find a moment where your Target is not holding their duck (which acts as a shield which protects from being eliminated), and to physically touch them with your own duck (which acts as the assassination weapon). If you are 'assassinated', (touched by the person who is assigned your name while you are not holding your own duck for defense), you are 'out'. If you successfully eliminate your Target, you acquire your Target's assigned Target, and you try to eliminate that new person. The game ends when only one player remains in the game.
WHY PARTICIPATE?
This game is good for DWeb Camp because it encourages people to get to know each other's names, and to join new circles of people in order to gain access to their Target; games have gotten sophisticated, where "information brokers" develop to introduce people to their Target, or trading of Targets when there are insufficient ways to access the Target -- this game is generally lighthearted and good fun. It encourages a little bit of healthy paranoia, which keeps the game interesting.
We will also implement "safe zones" such as anyone presenting or hosting a workshop is immune to elimination during their talk, or "anyone attending a workshop is immune" which would encourage people to participate in more workshops in order to benefit from elimination immunity. Learn the rules at our Opening Circle.  
Then the fun begins!

Set up Session: Full Moon Women Circle | Constructing the Base Camp
In order for us to establish connection and strong communication between the women within the DWeb camp, we propose to hold women circles on mornings and/or evenings of the camp.

By creating a woman-only space has been praised by women* who do work around healing justice as a right for women to convene to connect and share without a male gaze or feeling observed. the space will be dedicated for women* to relax and connect.

The women circles are ideal for women to exchange knowledge, skills and life experiences that make space for connection, intimacy and sisterhood. We regard women’s circle as an open a channel of communication where those are present can be present with one another from a place of connection and trust. We will explore these three as pillars for movement building and consolidation of feminisms in tech.

We want to allow this space to hold us all through our emotional and spiritual experiences as women who are living in a patriarchal and male dominated world. We wish for this space to be a space that is for us to design and take over the way we feel is right for us as women working in the many spaces of tech.

In this session, we will discuss what we feel like discussing. We will allow ourselves to be moved by the moon and flow to our own rhythms and impulses while exploring the ways we are constructed and deconstructed.

We will also draw tarot cards and set intentions for ourselves and our communities women in tech.

Cyborg Physical Therapy
Yoga-inspired tools for body + mind management, specifically tailored for those who spend lots of time around computers. This will be a yoga class that transitions into a guided meditation with our computers (or other device of choice).

Hopes & Dreams
To foster the viewpoint that our computer is not an “other;” it’s an extension of ourselves and the way we see ourselves. And that it, just like us, does best when treated with compassion.

Participation
Anyone can participate! Wear comfortable clothes (this will be more meditative than workout, but still) and bring your computer or whatever tech device you work with the most on a daily basis.

Why Participate?
Because you are interested in getting to know your computer on a deeply personal level, because spending healing time /with/ your computer is beneficial to both you and the machine, because parts of your body and mind hurt from adjusting to our modern lifestyles of daily tech interaction and use, and/or because it’s just nice to take a break from manifesting incredible new ideas with others at DWeb camp and spend sometime with yourself.

Morning Qi Flow
Breath and movement meditation to cleanse the energetic field and enhance functionality of the body and mind.


Hopes & Dreams
It is my joy and part of my mission to change the way we do business to include more receptivity, team coherence that leads to group intelligence, and enhanced creativity. An integral part of my philosophy of peak organizational performance and impact is "being before doing." Taking time to de-stress, de-clutter the brain, and reach a state of emptiness creates receptivity in a group. By creating a culture that allows space for the group to shift from stress into the flow state, a team can move mountains. The flow on effect of such a culture is bonding, playfulness, and fun.

Participation *
Anyone can participate. Wear comfortable clothing that allow for movement.


Why participate *
Why should anyone be interested to participate in this project? What interests are served?
This class is meant to help participants to release tension and relax.

Decentralized Voting & Zero-Knowledge Proofs
This is an audience participation demonstration of centralized voting versus decentralized voting. Zero-Knowledge Proofs are also demonstrated and utilized within the decentralized voting demonstration.

Hopes & Dreams
Decentralized voting using zero-knowledge proofs educates and demonstrates the power and increased social trust that is possible for collective determination of outcomes and decision making.

Participation
All can participate and a computer is not needed other than as a source for a projector. If no projector is available, this demonstration can be done with no electronics.

Why Participate?
All people that are interested in governance and what is possible for new ways of high integrity and privacy via voting should gain something from this session.

Session rundown
Approximately 10 to 100 people can participate in this session which requires approximately 20 minutes.

Economic Network Constellation Co-design Session
This is a space for those building or involved with the creation of platforms, collaboration systems and other coordination tools for alternative economic interaction to hear about each others' work and explore how our efforts may interconnect to form wider constellations of apps.

Hopes & Dreams
More connections being made in the New Economy; platforms beginning to build bridges and gather momentum by sharing participants; seed forms of new economic patterns beginning to take root as viable alternatives to the status quo.

Participation
Open to all who are interested, we'll keep it non-technical.

Why Participate?
If you're hoping to create a new more ethical world and are holding a piece of the puzzle, finding others holding different pieces and coming together to see how our forces can be combined is the best way toward success.

Session Rundown
To begin will run through and share these guiding questions: 
- What's the quick one-liner to describe your app / platform / network? 
- What are the most important resources for you to track? 
- How do resources & value flow through your platform? 
- Are there resources that come in from external sources? 
- Are there resources that are produced by your userbase? 
- How do resources leave your platform to enter the wider world? 
- What transformations or processes do you perform in converting those inputs to outputs? 
- What related value flows (external to your platform) are vital to your value chain? 
- What critical transformations do you rely on others in your value chain to perform?

Someone will keep a mindmap going while this is happening and begin connecting dots. If time permits, we can form groups or pairs and discuss common protocols based on interest area / market vertical, or particular integrations at the boundary between platforms of interest. We can then rejoin to share insights with the rest of the group. It can be a day long installation, or a guided deeply immersive experience, from 20 minutes up to multiple hours.

#FutureisNEAR: Crypto-Prototyping Series--Part 1 (Intro to Crypto-Prototyping)
Join us for a multi-day journey from ideation to deployment of your decentralized app on the NEAR blockchain. We will come up with ideas for dApps based on a taxonomy of possible blockchain use cases, then work together to create and deploy working prototypes in a hands-on workshop. We will finish off the series by exploring ways we can support each other to take our projects into the real world beyond dWeb camp.

Hopes & Dreams
We would love to get a cadre of hacker-organizers and hacker-entrepreneurs building apps on the NEAR blockchain. We also want to be the base-level protocol that supports a huge number of practical, 'get your hands dirty' projects that walk the balance between gaining mainstream adoption and enabling socially-regenerative technologies to take root in the world. Our hope is that by supporting a bunch of people to prototype their dream apps at dWeb camp that we can seed some of those projects so that they then continue to build them in the real world.

Participation
Anyone can participate. You will need a laptop, particularly for the prototyping session. Experience with Javascript is ideal but not necessary, and coding experience is very relevant but you can still join in if you don't have coding experience. Kids are welcome as long as they are interested in participating in discussions and being involved in designing and programming.

Why Participate?
Join us if you would like to connect with others who are frustrated by unnecessary and overhyped blockchain projects and want to focus on projects that actually use the core aspects of blockchains to enable new social realities. Join if you want to write a blockchain smart contract in Typescript, and without making your users immediately deal with the complexities of private keys. Join if you want motivation to create the idea that has been in the back of your mind for a while and support from other builders to take your project back into the world at the end of dWeb camp.

Self-organized Discussion on Peer-to-Peer Database Approaches
Peer-to-peer databases are on the cutting-edge of what's possible with the decentralized web. Under the umbrella of eventually consistent model/view architectures, peer-to-peer databases are tackling problems using a variety of approaches to architectures, storage, indexes, user identities, discovery, and synchronization. There are a lot of open questions with a variety of partially-solved answers. This is a meet-and-greet and workshop for folks who are actively building these peer-to-peer databases, as well as for new people who are interested in getting involved. Participants will introduce themselves, their interests, and what they think are the biggest challenges that need attention. We will then create self-organized breakout groups to identify and discuss various approaches to these challenges.

Hopes & Dreams
After DWeb Camp, these discussions would ideally lead to some common approaches or even common code that can be shared between disparate projects that have overlapping interests.

Participation
Everyone interested in contributing to peer-to-peer databases

Why Participate?
Ideally this discussion would be held on Friday, so that folks who are interested in these topics are able to identify each other a little bit easier over the weekend. For those who are new, they could come out of the discussion with some ideas of how to get involved in projects.

Session Rundown
Unconference style, 30 minutes of introductions, 1 hour of breakout, 30 minutes of report back (if desired)

Mindmapping DWebCamp in Virtual Reality
The Decentralized Web is a grand concept spanning many different disciplines, and sometimes it's difficult to communicate to others what it is, why it's important, and what's being done. Come join us to build a collaborative mindmap of the projects and topics being discussed at DWebCamp, and add your own voice to help explain the lay of the land.

Hopes & Dreams
I hope that with the participation of all the great minds at DWebCamp, we can build a collection of voices speaking about what the decentralized web is about, and why it's important. The final product of this project will be a website that presents this information spatially as both a 2d site and an immersive 3D/VR "memory palace" experience. My dream is that this experience can then live on across a number of decentralized platforms as a snapshot of the thoughts and concerns of the Decentralized Web community at this point in time.

Participation
People of all ages are welcome! We'll have a number of VR headsets to use for the full immersive experience. If you bring a laptop or smartphone, you can join in from there as well!

Why Participate?
By participating in this project, you'll get to add your voice to a digital tapestry which documents the current state of the decentralized web, and capture all your thoughts and concerns and hopes and dreams for the future of the web. After the event, this project will be published on multiple decentralized content platforms, as well as uploaded to the Internet Archive.

Science Fair Demos
Invitation:
We invite you to polish up your experiments, your innovations, that crazy passion project you did nights and weekends. It's time to spark ideas, start conversations, and have some fun.

This doesn't have to be about decentralization! This shouldn't be a product to pitch. We want you to share something that excites you. From raver lights to that app you coded in your spare time, bring a Science Fair project to share. You can set it and forget it if it's a demo that needs no explanation!

Presenters:
We'll give you a 3 foot round cocktail table, power and an internet connection. You do the rest! Bring your laptop to give 1-on-1 demos. Or set up your display with good signs and explainers so you can go explore the Camp! Then come back every so often to talk to Campers about your project.

Goal: 
A wise person once said, "If you want to find the next big thing, discover what hackers are working on during their nights and weekends."  Maybe your ingenious hack is that next breakthrough. Or just a good conversation starter. This is a relaxed way to share your ideas.

Internet Archive's Universal Library
We have a version of the IA server that runs on devices as small as Raspberry Pi's. Its intended for use in places where the internet is absent or poor - expensive, slow or censored. It can serve content from local storage; crawl content to that storage; and act as a proxy. We'd love to get some help cleaning off some of the rough edges to make it usable by our target users - people setting up really remote networks.

Hopes & Dreams
That community networks in remote places will start using this alongside other tools for Wikipedia, Khan Academy; Kolibri; Open Street Maps etc to provide a full range of content

Participation
People building community networks; coders who know javascript; people who know how to make RPI's into mesh nodes.

Why Participate?
Help people outside our bubble of great internet access the rich content that allows them to break the cycle of poverty.

P2P and Heart2Heart: Code as an Object of Affection
P2P, in its simplest meaning, means two people forming a direct connection to share what's important to them-- just like having a crush, or falling in love. How, then, can we make decentralized tech that is cute, nervous, and full of desire--that makes people crush on each other, helps them fall for one another? What are the p2p apps that will be shared like used copies of a Le Guin novel, or left meaningfully on the screen when you invite someone over for dinner? How can we write code to be cherished like a mixtape?

This workshop will be a combination of nostalgia and future-building. We will discuss the history of our crushes, how they developed, and when technology played a crucial part. Then we will write up visions for a lovely future, using p2p apps that were built to be objects of affection.

Hopes & Dreams
I hope people see a different approach to designing new technology in this space--tech that fits in the emotional lineage of mixtapes, myspace, and poetry. Whether it helps spark your new project, or gives an introduction to some of the work already being made, the main goal is to make the decentralized world more inviting, to go beyond tech specs and demos to the small beautiful things that hit you in the chest.

Participation
Everyone is welcome and it is kid friendly. The main focus of the workshop is love, memory, and desire---and so anyone who has experienced these three things and wants to discuss them would be a good fit. The workshop is a mix of discussion and some exploration of dat zines/dat apps. A computer would help with this, but I feel the workshop is still of interest without one.
If you bring a computer, it could also be good to bring a favorite song in mp3 format. One that fills you with feeling, whatever that means for you.

Why Participate?
It is of interest to those who want to cherish the future, and who want to explore heartfelt approaches to code. It is through this under-discussed aspect of tech that we can create a more diverse and emotionally rich space. There'll be a focus on Dat and Beaker Browser, so there is the bonus of exploring and experimenting with both of these mediums.

Session Rundown
2 hours overall, with a break in the middle. This can all happen in the same space.

Group Intelligence Workshop
In this workshop, participants will learn to create the conditions for a thriving team that can access group intelligence leading to their greatest impact and success. It includes elements such as shifting a group from stress into presence, uniting the team to be on the same page, and creating what a 2-year Google study found as the top attribute of a successful team: psychological safety. Warning: this may include silliness and play in service to better results. The workshop will be experiential and interactive. Come as an individual or bring your team!

Hopes & Dreams
It is my joy and the mission of Enliven Leadership to change the way we do business to include greater team coherence that leads to amplified group intelligence to better serve the planet positive mission. An integral part of my philosophy of peak organizational performance and impact is "being before doing." Taking time to de-stress, de-clutter the brain, and reach a state of emptiness creates receptivity in a group to the flow of creative solutions. By creating a culture that allows space for the group to shift from stress into the flow state, a team can move mountains to accomplish their mission. Additional qualities of a culture of collaboration are bonding, playfulness, and fun!

Participation
Open to everyone!

Collaboration Art Creation
Facilitate the creation of at least one - possibly 2 or 3 acrylic paintings that are created completely collaboratively

Hopes & Dreams
The hope is that a few really interesting abstract paintings will emerge from the camp experience that are truly the work of many - and not one single artist. The participants will take part in a 'decentralized' art making experience and at the end of camp, the pieces can be bid on by art collectors who might want to take them home!

Participation
Anyone can participate in this! No one needs to be an *artist*, or experienced at making art. With collaborative art, not ONE person puts their name on any piece, nor 'leads' the art creation. That being said, there is a ‘facilitator’ who will organize some key participants and a process for making the art - and this helps make sure the pieces don't devolve into a muddy mess. Towards the end of camp, the key participants will regroup to decide together how to constructively finish the paintings. The facilitator will then help to make sure there is a balance of everyone's ideas in the piece and that they do not end up the work of just one overwhelmingly 'good' painter.

Why Participate
Making collaborative art is fun! Participants get to experience making abstract art with curiosity and openness and learn from each other. Constructive disagreement is openly encouraged throughout the process and this leads to a rich and stimulating learning experience, and (usually) some beautiful work is created that EVERYONE can be proud of!

Session Rundown
A lightning talk at the beginning of camp will introduce the project and the key participants can sign up with Margaret Warren, who will be facilitating the process. All paintings will be done with acrylic paint and if people bring collage materials, the group might agree to also collage other other materials into the works as well.

The key participants (probably no more than 6-10) will need to be at an initial 1-3 hour session to get the painting started (probably 1 hour minimum - but then can keep painting as long as they want!) - after that, any camp attendee can paint on the works throughout the camp. Key participants will monitor the works during camp (to keep them from turning into mud), and then the key participants will meet for one final painting session towards the end of camp to 'finish' the pieces.

Remembering Network
An interactive art-tech installation by Sarah Friend and Arkadiy Kukarkin

A memorial to biodiversity loss, hosted on the p2p web
There are 41,415 species on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List of Threatened Species, and 16,306 of them are threatened with extinction. It makes up 27% of all assessed species, 40% of amphibians, 25% of mammals, 14% of birds, and 70% of assessed plants. Early this May, the United Nations released a report on global biodiversity loss, finding that it is in unprecedented decline as a result of human activities.

Take a deep breath and hold that in your mind. As we try to preserve and rebuild our world, we must also bear witness to the losses that came from our past carelessness.
The Svalbard Global Seed Vault is a highly secure seed bank meant to preserve genetic information for future civilizations located on a remote island in Norway. Increasingly, it serves as a memorial, but it’s not accessible to most people as anything more than an idea. Remembering network is also a kind of monument - but one that is collaborative, local-first, diverse, and resilient - to lost and threatened wildlife. It will contain crowdsourced images and genetic information of currently threatened and endangered animals.

Attendees are invited to submit images of animals, to be packaged in archives on ipfs and other peer to peer protocols. Much like the seed bank, which is built to withstand many kinds of extreme climate and weather, peer to peer protocols are similarly designed to withstand network failures and takedown attempts. We'll put our memorial in the safest place we know: all over the world, everywhere.

  • a small wired front-end server (4 cores, 16+ GB RAM, 2TB+ SSD) to provide HTTP access to the catalog, with metadata (but not fulltext) search
  • A fileserver with about 50 TByte of disk storage laser printer with consumables to print about 200x 5 pages hard copies
  • single-seat workstation (raspberry pi and a monitor) attached to printer
  • available over wired ethernet, bridging to whatever mesh/wireless or dweb tunneling folks are interested in
  • A booth will offer designated service hours to help folks look things up and discuss distributed libraries.

Scuttlebooth
Photobooth that both prints a film strip and posts the pictures to scuttlebutt. Ideally the physically printed version will include a QR code link to where the photo can be found on the scuttleverse.

Hopes & Dreams
I’d like to eventually build an actual booth for this but so far it’s just been a computer without any structure

Participation
The basic functionality is 1 button to take 3 photos. But if you want the digital version you have to get on scuttlebutt!

Why Participate?
Fun!! It’s a fun installation that shouldn’t require much maintenance and can work hand in hand with other projects/parties

Session Rundown
Hopefully I can just set it up at the beginning and leave it on. If people are interested how it works I could do a little explanation!

Workshop: Become a Mesh Network Steward!
As a Network Steward your responsibility is to help other campers learn about and tinker with the local network and Internet connectivity arrangement, and to help address general device connectivity issues as they come up around you. Here are the simple steps to become a Network Steward at DWeb Camp:


1. Find a Network Steward and ask for a short 15 minute tour to physically locate the wireless mesh network nodes and where local services are provided, so you can point these out to other campers and lead such a 15 minute walk to onboard new Network Stewards

2. Join the #dweb-camp-2019-mesh Matrix chat room to coordinate with other Network Stewards during Camp as needed

3. Wear the Network Steward button to indicate you are here to help if people are struggling with network issues or would like to learn more

If you would like to be a Network Steward, come meet at the Mesh Hall to learn about the local network at Camp!

Aboriginal, First Nations and Indigenous DWeb Camp Connection & Beyond
Idea:
Let's get all the Aboriginal, First Nations and Indigenous people in attendance to connect as early in the camp as possible so we can plan our time together.

Frames:
What does a decentralized web bring to Indigenous knowledges and methods of resistance? How do we use this technology to resist differing forms of colonialism at its different fazes of occupation and erasure? It is integral that Aboriginal people have the space and time for closed group discussions to center our voices and knowledges. A tent has been funded to allow a safe space for meetings, collaboration and imaginings of Indigenous futures.

Background:
A number of people have been involved in making dweb camp accessible. There are many Aboriginal, First Nations and Indigenous technologists, poets, activists and writers in attendance. This proposed project programme is intended to contribute to opening space throughout the camp for us to connect directly with one another to start figuring out what we can do together throughout and beyond the camp.

Hopes & Dreams
The hope is that we connect and lay the foundations for a distributed web of connection upon which we can slowly build trust, connection, mutual aid and solidarity once we return to our communities, lands, creations and resistances.

Participation
This project is open only to people who identify as Aboriginal, First Nations and Indigenous.

Why Participate?
Opportunities for us to meet are rare. Lets connect- Organise. Decolonise. Indigenise.

Session Rundown
As a matter of priority we should all meet and connect as soon after the camp begins as possible. The format can be co-designed once we have met. This might include but not limited to:

* introduction of ourselves, our peoples, our lands
* introduction of our projects and work
* communication of our offers and needs

Please contact laniyuk@blockades.org if you would like to help co-facilitate this process.

Session Two: Performance of Masculinities and Technology
In the race to have the fastest and best models of tech in what we judge will make an impact on people’s lives, we often times find ourselves operating from a head space and not dropping into the rest of our bodies and even disregarding our emotions. On the other hand, one of the leading underlying causes for trauma and wounds for men in our world is the way that patriarchy denies boys and men their right to process and feel emotions.

In this session, facilitator cynthia and co-facilitator Nico will hold space for men to discuss what it means to be a man doing work in tech? What are the expectations that are projected on us on the field? How does the image of “the guy in tech” affect the behaviors of men in male dominated spaces? And how does male performance in turn impact women in the tech field?

We hope that after this session, a greater sense of balancing the masculine with the feminine will allow men to show in their whole capacities, and liberate themselves from expectations and need to perform the right kind of masculinity.

Session Rundown
This will be an intimate conversation that will run for around 75 minutes.

Participation
We hope to host 10 to 15 people. Participants are asked to come with an open heart and an open spirit and will be asked to be as open as they can and want to be with one another.

Raver Lights!
Raver Lights is a wirelessly synchronized LED animation and control system I created for offline environments (aka Burning Man). The system is power efficient (for WS2812b LEDs) and works well for wearables and portable art. Raver Lights has grown into a pretty robust system, and is designed to (hopefully) make it easy for other people to create amazing LED art without having to know things like clock-synchronization algorithms, writing an animation engine, networking protocols, etc.

Hopes & dreams *
My hope is for folks to get excited about creating small-scale LED art, especially those who don't think they have the technical skills necessary. My dream is for LED art, and indeed all art, to become accessible to everyone, not just nerds like me.

Participation *
Anyone with basic programming experience is encouraged to attend. There are many ways to interact with Raver Lights, from creating animations using easy-ish to use helper libraries, to working on the core animation and synchronization engine. Regardless of skill level, there's something interesting to work on!


Why participate *
Folks who are interested in creating LED art and/or are interested in offline distributed systems are encouraged to attend.


Material requirements;
Folks will need a laptop and a USB port (USB-C users will need an adapter). All hardware will be supplied by Bryan on loan for attendees. Attendees should install https://github.com/espressif/esptool and https://docs.platformio.org/en/latest/core.html prior to arrival, since internet may not be very fast at DWeb.

⚡️Lightning Talk: Multiple Transport Layers for the Decentralized Web
The decentralized web is nothing without decentralized storage. That being said, developers and users of the decentralized web are often then burdened with deciding which decentralized storage provider(s) they should work with. Well, in decentralized fashion, the likely answer is not one single provider or even a predetermined set of providers, but rather ANY provider. The decentralized web will be powered by multiple transport layers, and that decision should be left up to the user.

The Safaris and Chromes of the world were built for and currently dominate the centralized web. These centralized apps, however, yield total autonomy of how and where data is stored and retrieved to developers instead of users. The decentralized web, however, must adopt browsers and apps that return this control back to the user. Therefore, developers must be given tools and standards that enable the development of apps that direct the transport (i.e. storage and retrieval) of data without being able to control this data.

I believe this must be achieved through development of a multiple transport layer that has open and transparent standards. The basic concept underlying this idea is already present and being demonstrated in the Internet Archive dweb.archive.org internals. At Wolk we implemented the Internet Archive's transport layer API so that we could be included and incorporated into it's multi-transport vision.

What will You learn?
We would like to share our learnings in wiring Wolk's decentralized blockchain to the Internet Archive's Multiple Transports Layer, to see how we can extend this important idea with other active participants (multiple browser/extension devs, decentralized storage providers, and application devs)

Gathering of people working on devices for remote and off-grid areas

Hopes & Dreams
I'd like to bring the community together who work on these interrelated challenges so we can share our experiences, the common issues we face, but mostly so that we can meet each other, and spawn other conversations that will occur informally over the camp.

Participation
Anyone is welcome, but I'm hoping that this gathering will bring together the packagers (IIAB, Rachel, LibraryBox etc) with the server builders (Interent Archive; Wikipedia; Learning Equality; Open Street Lights) and the deployers which includes many of the APC fellows attending.

Why Participate?
If you work in this space, this is the chance to figure out who you should make sure to connect with the rest of the camp.

Session Rundown
Part 1: Introductions around the circle, especially from people working in the space. 
Part 2: Throwing out some common challenges, chances for people to self-identify as facing, or having solutions to, those challenges. 
Part 3: Wherever the conversation above leads us.

BYOB: Build Your Own Browser
Mass market browsers are control points on our digital future. They decide what values are encoded in our experience of the web - how we read, how we publish, how we share, what we save. Let's look at browsers that are pushing on the edge of what a user agent can be today, and experiment with building our own. This session will be unstructured discussion and hacking - come to learn, share and build!

Hopes & Dreams
We build browsers that truly are agents *for us*, represent our values, and include the technologies that enable web experiences that put users in control.

Participation
Join for an hour (or more if you want to keep going?) of sharing and learning about how browsers are built, hacking on adding features to the core, or building extensions. Bring your expertise to share and/or your thirst to learn! Laptops required if you want to build things, but not required to participate in conversation.

Why Participate?
You want to learn how to hack on browsers, or share your knowledge

Build a Linked Data ImageGraph
Using the Internet Archive as a server and linking images through ImageSnippets to other datasets such as Wikidata and even possibly publishing through Solid Pods participants will build an image graph from the event, with metadata openly published as linked data in an RDF triple store. The camping experience will inevitably hold many opportunities for image making by the participants; everything from having meals and conversations together, to photos of the surroundings. To document the DWeb camp experience with images and descriptions that can then be mapped into an RDF graph and shared using open linked data principles following the F.A.I.R. principles can be a learning experience for participants as well as a lot of fun and at the end will produce a well documented experience enriched with lots of metadata!

Hopes & Dreams
The collective interpretation of images can be shared as data that can change how people come to agreements in many different fields. Preserving that information using linked data and shared openly makes those images even more valuable to a future web.

Why Participate?
Describing images with linked data metadata is a really interesting project altogether. Being able to formalize image descriptions using datasets such as Wikidata to describe images is fun and it adds a whole new dimension to how we talk about photos. I think this would be a great way for the experiences that people have at the DWeb camp to be archived in a really special way throughout the experience.

Why Participate?
For the general public: learning about a social / collaboration / commerce platform where you can be in control of your data / tech / etc. by using your own devices to run it (computer or phone) with zero technical involvement. For technologists: exploring the idea of making p2p browser-only apps (like WebTorrent) available to wider audiences, all the interesting technical challenges involved in doing so, thinking of possible applications.

Session Rundown
Project presentation, exploration & general discussion: 
- 20 mins: intro to the project (goals, description of the tech we have now) 
- 20 mins: everybody tries the platform out in their phones / computers, explores connecting to each other 
- 20 mins (could be longer if there's interest): discussion, idea sharing, criticism? :-) 
Hacking on the project: 
- 10 mins: intro to the project (goals, what we have now) 
- 20 mins: technology overview 
- 30 mins: discussion of what we would like to improve, build, add, etc. as long as we feel like it: prototyping, programming, further discussions, etc

Working group: Safety, Harassment and Accessibility in Scuttlebutt
We'll discuss ways that people can Have A Bad Time on a social network, specifically Scuttlebutt.  How will creative harassers get the attention of their targets?  What specific UX features can head off those attacks?  What do we need to do to make Scuttlebutt safe and easy for everyone?  Blocking, accessibility features, privacy settings... how can we ensure that our software is supporting our values and limit the harm it can do? We'll start with a listening session to learn about peoples' experiences. Then Cinnamon has principles and proposals to share from the Abuse Audit; we'll brainstorm more and discuss user needs, technical details and systemic implications of these changes.

Hopes & Dreams
We'll walk away excited to make our software safe and accessible for everyone, with concrete next steps.

Participation
This is a facilitated roundtable discussion about users' needs and how developers can meet those needs.

Hoped-for participants:
- Developers of SSB clients
- People with experiences of online harassment
- People with accessibility needs

Why Participate?
For users, to share your experiences.
For developers, to listen to users and to prioritize and plan safety features.
Also for developers to build personal relationships with each other so we can support each other in this work, which will be an ongoing process.

Session Rundown

Technical Salon
People come into a casual/lounge space and are given name tags. Instruction is that you don't put your name or where you work on that name tag– instead, you list three things that you're currently working on/excited about.

The goal is to have people meet and connect in line with interests and passions– a way to start conversations that don't start with name or workplace. There will be light facilitation to help people flow and mingle.

Hopes & Dreams
I hope that this can be the beginning of connections and conversations that last through and beyond DWeb Camp!

Participation
Anyone can participate, kids are welcome, and no materials are required!

Why Participate?
This is a way to meet people and have good conversations that can continue throughout the other activities.

#FutureisNEAR: Crypto-Prototyping Series--Part 2 (Use Case Deep Dive)
Join us for a multi-day journey from ideation to deployment of your decentralized app on the NEAR blockchain. We will come up with ideas for dApps based on a taxonomy of possible blockchain use cases, then work together to create and deploy working prototypes in a hands-on workshop. We will finish off the series by exploring ways we can support each other to take our projects into the real world beyond dWeb camp.

Hopes & Dreams
We would love to get a cadre of hacker-organizers and hacker-entrepreneurs building apps on the NEAR blockchain. We also want to be the base-level protocol that supports a huge number of practical, 'get your hands dirty' projects that walk the balance between gaining mainstream adoption and enabling socially-regenerative technologies to take root in the world. Our hope is that by supporting a bunch of people to prototype their dream apps at dWeb camp that we can seed some of those projects so that they then continue to build them in the real world.

Participation
Anyone can participate. You will need a laptop, particularly for the prototyping session. Experience with Javascript is ideal but not necessary, and coding experience is very relevant but you can still join in if you don't have coding experience. Kids are welcome as long as they are interested in participating in discussions and being involved in designing and programming.

Why Participate?
Join us if you would like to connect with others who are frustrated by unnecessary and overhyped blockchain projects and want to focus on projects that actually use the core aspects of blockchains to enable new social realities. Join if you want to write a blockchain smart contract in Typescript, and without making your users immediately deal with the complexities of private keys. Join if you want motivation to create the idea that has been in the back of your mind for a while and support from other builders to take your project back into the world at the end of dWeb camp.

Building Bridges: Connecting Tech Stacks for Humane UX
Problem:
Many people don't understand or care about the things we're working on. Or if they do, their friends aren't there. Barriers to adoption are both technical and social. We have many beautiful systems -- SSB, Matrix, Cabal, etc -- whose UX are good (better in some ways) but exist in their own islands.Inquiry:
How could interoperability improve the UX of our emerging un-platforms, especially as we grow beyond social networks and static content into open app ecosystems? What does it even mean to interoperate, from both technical and UX perspectives? When does it make sense to build bridges vs defer to other projects' strengths? How do we handle impedance mismatches between technologies? And most importantly, can we all get together over a cup of tea and chat about it?
Hopes & Dreams
  • Communication lines between projects are opened up
  • We begin to understand the biggest interoperability hurdles and opportunities
  • We build relationships that continue to grow past DWeb Camp, and identify ways to continue working together

Participation
This should be relevant to people with UX skills, psychology, marketing, human-centred design, compassion, modest knowledge of at least one DWeb technology

Why Participate?
You want to see the DWeb make inroads into the lives of 'ordinary' people (excuse the prejudice embedded into that word; language is tricky).
You recognise the gaps between where we are and where we could be, and want to have a hand in closing those gaps.
You know that every project has a unique perspective to contribute, and that we're much stronger as allies (and our users are better off too). You want to help forge those alliances.

Session Rundown
A group conversation (or two or five) among people who are either involved in a DWeb project or are strong advocates for humane application of technology. This format would serve two goals:
  • To build warm relationships that keep growing after our short time together
  • I am totally green at this calibre of event and this feels like a low-key way of contributing something valuable to a topic I care about.
I will be happy to kick off and facilitate discussions and share my own perspectives (disclaimer: I'm part of the Holochain project), but my intent is to "surround myself with people more intelligent than I" and see what happens

OneCommons: Designing a cooperatively run cloud platform for open source applications
This is a brainstorming session around an audacious question: can we build an open source and cooperatively-run alternative to proprietary cloud platforms? One that can provide end-users with guarantees of transparency, privacy and control? And is capable of Internet-scale resilience and growth so it can compete with the largest corporations?

OneCommons.org is a new project designing such a cloud platform. The goal of this session would be to explore participants' ideas about these concepts. Besides the technical challenges there are a complex web of social, legal, economic issues that require a broad range of skills and perspectives from participants. Questions like: what is the policy framework for user rights privacy? What is the criteria for choosing applications? What open source and open data licenses should be used? How to do you balance competing interests?

If there is time, we could present OneCommons' vision and architecture as a starting point for discussion and later dive deeper into some more specific features we are exploring such as decentralized governance, platform-wide data sharing, and participatory funding models.

Hopes & Dreams
- Develop shared understandings of the needs and wants of potential users and developers. 
- Find developers of open source applications that could be candidates for running on the OneCommons platform. 
- Connect participants with shared goals and passions around this topic.

Participation
Anyone can participate.

Why Participate?
If you chose to come to this camp you probably are concerned about centralization of the web around a few large corporations. This is a new approach to providing a viable alternative that likely touches on an interest of yours.

Session Rundown

Science Fair Demos
Invitation:
We invite you to polish up your experiments, your innovations, that crazy passion project you did nights and weekends. It's time to spark ideas, start conversations, and have some fun.

This doesn't have to be about decentralization! This shouldn't be a product to pitch. We want you to share something that excites you. From raver lights to that app you coded in your spare time, bring a Science Fair project to share. You can set it and forget it if it's a demo that needs no explanation!

Presenters:
We'll give you a 3 foot round cocktail table, power and an internet connection. You do the rest! Bring your laptop to give 1-on-1 demos. Or set up your display with good signs and explainers so you can go explore the Camp! Then come back every so often to talk to Campers about your project.

Goal: 
A wise person once said, "If you want to find the next big thing, discover what hackers are working on during their nights and weekends."  Maybe your ingenious hack is that next breakthrough. Or just a good conversation starter. This is a relaxed way to share your ideas.

Holochain apps and empowering tech: decentralising what, exactly?
A semi-structured discussion of ‘decentralisation’ as a concept. Session will begin by asking the question- “what does empowering technology look like?” After a short break-out (15 mins) to discuss this in groups of 3-5, we’ll rejoin.
Will then come together for a maximum of 80 mins to share these insights and explore words like ‘empowering’ and ‘equitable’, especially as they relate to the elusive concept of ‘decentralisation’. We will explore this concept along dimensions of data distribution, ownership, access, location, place, sociological, technological, cultural, political, financial… and many others to be brought forward on the day. We’ll discuss the flows of value and influence between these aspects of structure and power, and how governance and standards influence thinking patterns, code architectures and languages. We’ll use frameworks like Holochain, Ethereum, Scuttlebutt, DAT, Hypergraph, R3 Corda as examples of systems which express (consciously and unconsciously) power along these ‘dimensions of decentralisation’.
We’ll let this discussion run for a long as feels natural, and if particular topics & interest areas arise we may allocate time for groups to break off into more focused discussions. There is also an offering to dive into the HoloREA framework architecture, the reasoning behind its differences and the complex web of social, technical, financial and political interdependencies that have directed its development. How are these differences expressed in language? Are there better languages and framings available? How do our own framings map to those of others with different worldviews and lived realities?
There will be a final regroup for 20 minutes at the end of the session to allow for popcorn-style sharing of insights gathered, synthesis and final reflections from participants.
Prepare to unlearn what “framework”, “app”, “runtime” (and many other words) mean to you!

Participation
Developers, sociologists, whole systems thinkers, distributed governance experts. We may be looking at and discussing code, but my goal is to keep the conversation framed in the (more accessible) constructs of language, cooperation and communication.

Why Participate?
Every time there is a revolution in history the measurement infrastructure changes because we need new representations of complex global realities. Many decentralised projects focus on measuring, recording, managing or healing these realities; as such, they are projects of great responsibility. But there is often little reflection and pause for thought as to what we mean when we use this word, “decentralisation”. This is a time for such reflection, and to gather insights and new perspectives from each other.

Why Community Networks?
We intend to present a few community network cases, focusing on the community aspects of community networks, instead of just the technical ones, although they are inseparable.

Hopes & Dreams
We hope to start conversations around the importance of community building, self-governance, economic resilience, sovereignty, human and ecological diversity and what else comes up, which are of fundamental importance in a world which seems to not recognize the ongoing colonization thru globalization.

Everyone is welcome, kids and all, without any additional requirements beyond an open mind and heart.

Why Participate?
Anyone who believes local empowerment is important, as we'll share methods, tools and stories around that topic.

Session Rundown
The session will start early morning as we'll gather around a circle in an open space if weather permits. We'll introduce our communities and their haves and needs. Those of us who are part of a community-(mesh)-network will present a few stories, to start a conversation around the topic of how technology relates to community organizing.

Beyond Roles: Authentic Connection at Camp
Are you tired of superficial conversations? Or do you feel like you are acting based on who you think you should be instead of who you actually are?
With this workshop we will get beyond superficialities to what’s real. Who are you? And what do you have to say? These are questions we all face - come share with us and each other, see your peers beyond their jobs, skills, and outer appearances and be seen for you who truly are. This workshop will create a sense of belonging, connection and authenticity and provide a space where people feel safe to reveal their true selves.

Multiple Transport Layers for the Decentralized Web
The decentralized web is nothing without decentralized storage. That being said, developers and users of the decentralized web are often then burdened with deciding which decentralized storage provider(s) they should work with. Well, in decentralized fashion, the likely answer is not one single provider or even a predetermined set of providers, but rather ANY provider. The decentralized web will be powered by multiple transport layers, and that decision should be left up to the user.

The Safaris and Chromes of the world were built for and currently dominate the centralized web. These centralized apps, however, yield total autonomy of how and where data is stored and retrieved to developers instead of users. The decentralized web, however, must adopt browsers and apps that return this control back to the user. Therefore, developers must be given tools and standards that enable the development of apps that direct the transport (i.e. storage and retrieval) of data without being able to control this data.

I believe this must be achieved through development of a multiple transport layer that has open and transparent standards. The basic concept underlying this idea is already present and being demonstrated in the Internet Archive dweb.archive.org internals. At Wolk we implemented the Internet Archive's transport layer API so that we could be included and incorporated into it's multi-transport vision.

We would like to share our learnings in wiring Wolk's decentralized blockchain to the Internet Archive's Multiple Transports Layer, to see how we can extend this important idea with other active participants (multiple browser/extension devs, decentralized storage providers, and application devs)

Hopes & Dreams
Creating a unified library similar to web3.js but for storage.  

Participation
Designers of decentralized web + storage systems. This is is not kid friendly

Why Participate?
Anyone who wants to empower dApp developers with a seamless library that enables users to control the decentralized storage solutions their data is stored rather than the dApp developer.

⚡️Lightning Talk: Mass Migrations — Can technology help those forced to flee?
From Syria to Venezuela, the 21st century is already defined by mass migrations of people fleeing unsafe and unstable situations at home. Each instance is unique, but some of the problems the people involved face are shared. With climate change already at its tipping point, freedom of movement may well be the primary human rights issue of this century, and technology could potentially be leveraged at many levels of this struggle. Starting from human centered stories, this talk will seed a few ideas about that potential, while also challenging the notion that technology is *the* solution.

What will You learn?
People will benefit hopefully by the opening of a discussion on a vitally important topic, and creating connections between people interested in furthering their thinking and work in this area.

⚡️Lightning Talk: Whose future are you serving
Supremacy, in all it’s forms, is ultimately a narrative that we tell ourselves. It is these stories which determine who is valuable, who is authority, who can live and who must die. It was a story of supremacy that allowed Captain Cook(ed) to report to his superiors that the continent now known as ‘Australia’ was Terra Nullius aka uninhabited. He asserted that the people he did encounter were incapable of conceptualizing land ownership or governance. So continues one of the worlds most powerful stories-colonisation: ownership-slavery-murder-child abduction. This talk looks to explore the power and possibility of INTENT. What is possible and what limitations have we already created before coding even begins. What narratives are we imagining through P2P technology and what worlds are we creating? Is tech inherently a colonial space? How do we create tech that is not only decolonial but anti-colonial? While situated in one of the world's longest standing nightmare's how do we create tech that breeds Indigenous survival, resistance and renewal.
 
What will You learn?
- Start a conversation about importance of learning how the past effects our present
- Start a conversation around decolonisation in P2P
- Give some insight into needs of some Indigenous folks of the dweb

Fire by Friction Workshop
In this workshop you'll learn a 6000+ year old technique ("bow drill") to create an ember, using local northern California materials, and blow that ember into flame!

Fire is the magic that's warmed, fed, and provided tools for humanity for thousands of years. Let's explore how to use simple materials to create it ourselves!

I'll never forget the magic of the first ember I created using a bow drill set I made myself, and blowing that ember to life, creating a lasting fire that kept me & my friends warm. I'd like to share that experience as best I can, while also paying respect to the ancient origins of the skill, and that our modern understanding of it comes from the indigenous peoples of north america, and is by no means a white-euro invention.

Hopes & Dreams
I want everybody to be able to experience the magic that is bringing life to an ember, and blowing that tiny ember into flame! I want everybody to have fun, be safe, and learn some new things about the amazing natural world around them. I expect some folx to create an ember successfully, but usually the technique requires further practice. Don't be disheartened -- you'll get there! :)

Participation
Anyone

Why Participate?
Get a deeper understanding of how fire works, and its many uses.

Session Rundown
We'll be covering the basics of starting a fire by friction, primarily using the bow drill technique. If there is time & interest, we could also play with the hand drill technique, and use of a ferrocenium rod. We'll.. - learn the mechanical & physical theory of how the bow drill works - [attempt to] demonstrate its use - talk about knife & fire safety - let people experiment & learn hands-on! I will supply some pre-made bow drill sets for people to play with, made of various materials, and also a few knives for folks who want to try making their own sets from local materials near the camp.

Performance: San Francisco Airship Acoustic
SAN FRANCISCO AIRSHIP ACOUSTIC  is a tribute to Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees Jefferson Airplane. SF Airship's  stellar musicians respectfully recreate the feeling of that iconic band. Their live performance sounds exactly like The Airplane 1965-1970!

Members have performed with Jefferson Starship, Blue Cheer, Quicksilver Messenger Service, The Tubes, Big Brother & The Holding Company, New Riders Of The Purple Sage, and more.

SAN FRANCISCO AIRSHIP ACOUSTIC brings that wonderful Summer Of Love feeling back to life with hits like “White Rabbit”, “Somebody To Love”, “Wooden Ships”, “Volunteers” and many more. SF Airship Acoustic tastefully celebrates the music of one of the great bands of our time.

The band writes:
Airship Acoustic is about keeping Jefferson Airplane’s music alive. We grew up with their music and maybe you did too. But we’ve discovered in performance that it’s relevant to people who weren’t around for the original band. We started out as a full electric band, San Francisco Airship. But we know that the root of their music was in folk, blues and acoustic live performance. And, we’re not just performers, we’re fans. So we do our best to honor the spirit of the original music. We’re not trying to duplicate it so much as resurrect it. We’re bringing it back with the full force that only live music can do. We’re Airship Acoustic. Come along with us.

SF AIRSHIP ACOUSTIC is...
CHRIS LOCKHEED has performed and recorded with Kak, Goose Creek Symphony, New Riders of the Purple Sage, The Tubes, and Lightnin’ Hopkins.

JOJO RAZOR has sung with members of Yes, Saga and Renaissance. She also works with Gekko Projket, Imager and Shine Delirious.

JEFF KAPLAN is best known for his contributions to Zasu Pitts Memorial Orchestra, Norman Salant Band and New Bluegrass Disciples.

An integral part of my philosophy of peak organizational performance and impact is "being before doing." Taking time to de-stress, de-clutter the brain, and reach a state of emptiness creates receptivity in a group. By creating a culture that allows space for the group to shift from stress into the flow state, a team can move mountains. The flow on effect of such a culture is bonding, playfulness, and fun.

Group Game: ASSASSIN!

You can run but you cannot hide! You'll need all your ninja skills and senses to survive and win this enormous group game of Assassin!  The first 200 Campers who elect to play will be a part of this retreat-long game.  Winners will win some fun prizes, but the real reward is getting to know your fellow Campers in an entirely new way.  Intrigued?  Read on....

"Assassin" Game Rules:
Once arrived, everyone who is present and participating will be given a small rubber duck (about 2 inches big), and assigned the name of a Target to eliminate. This duck acts as both a weapon and a shield. The goal of the game is to find a moment where your Target is not holding their duck (which acts as a shield which protects from being eliminated), and to physically touch them with your own duck (which acts as the assassination weapon). If you are 'assassinated', (touched by the person who is assigned your name while you are not holding your own duck for defense), you are 'out'. If you successfully eliminate your Target, you acquire your Target's assigned Target, and you try to eliminate that new person. The game ends when only one player remains in the game.
WHY PARTICIPATE?
This game is good for DWeb Camp because it encourages people to get to know each other's names, and to join new circles of people in order to gain access to their Target; games have gotten sophisticated, where "information brokers" develop to introduce people to their Target, or trading of Targets when there are insufficient ways to access the Target -- this game is generally lighthearted and good fun. It encourages a little bit of healthy paranoia, which keeps the game interesting.
We will also implement "safe zones" such as anyone presenting or hosting a workshop is immune to elimination during their talk, or "anyone attending a workshop is immune" which would encourage people to participate in more workshops in order to benefit from elimination immunity. Learn the rules at our Opening Circle.  
Then the fun begins!

For example: Bitcoin's more open than Ether ... but many feel that this hasn't made Bitcoin more trustworthy. And not all DWeb implementations even need the full set of tools in the kit. Some of the tools (e.g. decentralized ledgers) have existed for decades. How will even experts look to build DWeb systems that can deliver the vision? How can semi-expert users find ones they can rely on? What needs to be "standardized" and how?

#FutureisNEAR: Crypto-Prototyping Series--Part 3 (Prototyping Jam)
Join us for a multi-day journey from ideation to deployment of your decentralized app on the NEAR blockchain. We will come up with ideas for dApps based on a taxonomy of possible blockchain use cases, then work together to create and deploy working prototypes in a hands-on workshop. We will finish off the series by exploring ways we can support each other to take our projects into the real world beyond dWeb camp.

Hopes & Dreams
We would love to get a cadre of hacker-organizers and hacker-entrepreneurs building apps on the NEAR blockchain. We also want to be the base-level protocol that supports a huge number of practical, 'get your hands dirty' projects that walk the balance between gaining mainstream adoption and enabling socially-regenerative technologies to take root in the world. Our hope is that by supporting a bunch of people to prototype their dream apps at dWeb camp that we can seed some of those projects so that they then continue to build them in the real world.

Participation
Anyone can participate. You will need a laptop, particularly for the prototyping session. Experience with Javascript is ideal but not necessary, and coding experience is very relevant but you can still join in if you don't have coding experience. Kids are welcome as long as they are interested in participating in discussions and being involved in designing and programming.

Why Participate?
Join us if you would like to connect with others who are frustrated by unnecessary and overhyped blockchain projects and want to focus on projects that actually use the core aspects of blockchains to enable new social realities. Join if you want to write a blockchain smart contract in Typescript, and without making your users immediately deal with the complexities of private keys. Join if you want motivation to create the idea that has been in the back of your mind for a while and support from other builders to take your project back into the world at the end of dWeb camp.

A Website Built by Many: Launching DWeb Global Together
Designers, coders and writers: help us create a new landing page for the global DWeb brand. It will be a central place to find DWeb groups around the world.

We are on the way to have one global page to empower local communities to run events, share views and co-create the web we deserve. One of the core tenets of DWeb is that "DWeb is built by many" where "everyone is influencing our society's future".

Therefore, we see a new website as: 
- not the outcome of two or three creative minds designing & developing
- but as a huge picture made up of the thoughts and needs of us all.

During the session we will:
  • finalise the message of DWeb's brand together;
  • create information architecture for the website;
  • collect all flashbacks and articles from previous events and...-
  •  yes! code it from zero to launch by the final day of DWeb Camp 

So, whoever you are - a developer, designer, writer, thinker or dreamer - join us! We will have a lot of fun co-creating this BIG touchpoint that will exist into the future to grow our global community.

Science Fair Demos
Invitation:
We invite you to polish up your experiments, your innovations, that crazy passion project you did nights and weekends. It's time to spark ideas, start conversations, and have some fun.

This doesn't have to be about decentralization! This shouldn't be a product to pitch. We want you to share something that excites you. From raver lights to that app you coded in your spare time, bring a Science Fair project to share. You can set it and forget it if it's a demo that needs no explanation!

Presenters:
We'll give you a 3 foot round cocktail table, power and an internet connection. You do the rest! Bring your laptop to give 1-on-1 demos. Or set up your display with good signs and explainers so you can go explore the Camp! Then come back every so often to talk to Campers about your project.

Goal: 
A wise person once said, "If you want to find the next big thing, discover what hackers are working on during their nights and weekends."  Maybe your ingenious hack is that next breakthrough. Or just a good conversation starter. This is a relaxed way to share your ideas.

Turning Point: A Call for Humane Technology
While we’ve been upgrading our technology we’ve been downgrading humanity. This is the turning point. Join us in a deep discussion about the way forward toward a more humane technology.
The extractive attention economy is tearing apart our shared social fabric.The mismatch between our natural human sensitivities and the exponentially growing power of technology opens the door to massive extraction and monetization of our thoughts, emotions, and actions—generating a slew of harmful side effects, such as:
  • Shorter attention spans
  • Outrage over dialogue
  • Addicting our children
  • Polarizing democracies
  • Turning life into a competition for likes and shares 
While we’ve been upgrading our technology
we’ve been downgrading humanity.
 
The Way ForwardThis is a historic moment– never before has technology had the power to so profoundly change the beings that create it. We are at a turning point where we can either allow that power to continue unchecked, or contain it by building Humane Technology that protects our minds and replenishes society.
Humane Technology requires that we understand our most vulnerable human instincts so we can design compassionately to protect them from abuse.
We envision a world where Humane Technology is the default for all technology products and services. A combination of new design processes, new goals and metrics, new organizational structures, and new business models would drastically reduce harmful externalities, actively supporting our individual and collective well-being.
Center for Humane Technology cofounder, Aza Raskin, will present an overview of CHT's proposal and then engage in a deep dialogue about this turning point and our roles moving forward.

⚡️Lightning Talk: Rethinking Decentralization As Orthogonality
It's possible that terms like "decentralization" and "p2p" are actually a poor fit to describe the long-term goals of many who are working in this space. I propose a different take - namely, orthogonality - that emphasizes agency and lack of capture, without encumbering notions fixated on legacy transport-layer brokenness.

What will You learn?
I propose a new set of conceptual dimensions along which to think about our various projects. Even if people reject my general thesis, these axes may be useful tools for people in general.

⚡️Lightning Talk: Citadels
A Citadel [Hewitt 2016-2019] is an Actor [Hewitt, et. al. 1973] that coordinates large-scale operations using a massive inconsistency-robust ontology [Guarino and Musen 2015, Hewitt 2016-2019] thereby providing the following:
• Faster response time than datacenters because interactive communication is greatly reduced with remote datacenters. In order to implement Scalable Intelligent Systems [Hewitt 2019], future hologlasses [Gurman 2017, Mundy 2016] will require very short latencies in communicating with a large inconsistency-robust ontology in a Citadel.
• Better information integration than datacenters because information is not isolated in datacenters of competing companies. Instead, information of a citizen is processed locally in a Citadel using a massive inconsistency-robust ontology.

Consumer Citadels need a profitable business model that is more convenient and efficient for consumers than storing their sensitive information in datacenters paid by advertising targeted using personal sensitive information. Instead, a Citadel running on a consumer's equipment can seek out and help evaluate appropriate offers from commerce agents. Such commerce agents can earn commissions and fees from merchants when the referral is exercised. Consequently, merchants will no longer be burdened by having to pay for inefficient advertising that annoys potential customers. Instead, businesses can provide their information to commerce agents that aggregate and package it for consumers' Citadels to be used in evaluating offers that can be filtered, integrated, and presented according to citizen needs and preferences. In order to be competitive, Citadels must be more convenient and provide better response time than datacenters of competing companies. Of course, a Citadel can query commercial datacenters (such as Amazon, Facebook, Google, and LinkedIn) as well as other Citadels.

Citadels can provide many additional services for their customers. For example, they can help automate subscriptions to media including new services. In this way, they help revive the economic foundation of the local press.

Citadels offer an opportunity to shift away from the dominant consumer software business model based on mass surveillance using datacenters. If the information desired by government security agencies is not stored in datacenters, then they will not be driven to standardize operations in datacenters. Consequently, companies will not be so restricted innovating operations in their datacenters thereby avoiding the surveillance operations trap.

What will You learn?

How to reboot the consumer Internet business model for faster response time and better information integration than datacenters of competing companies

⚡️Lightning Talk: Reliberating Scholarly Works
The early web made it easy for anyone to publish, but alarm at the frequency with which URLs broke led to the false notion in academic and research institutions that, to make their URLs persistent, they must publish only via centralized and paywalled URLs. This talk describes the causes and the 18-year-old, decentralized ARK identifier solution maintained by the University of California.


What will You learn?
How to spot some of the fallacies and help institutions avoid the waste of paying for and losing control over individual URLs for their scholarly and research outputs.

⚡️Lightning Talk: Anthillhacks - A Location Inclusive Fair
Anthill is a metaphor for the world of structure and complexity that exists just beneath the surface of everything around us.

Imagine groups of people from different domains living together for a period of time... the location itself brings about an intermingling of thought-systems that would not have interacted otherwise. This inspires collaborations giving birth to eye-opening new productions and curation of existing narratives and annotations of real world objects at the location.

A deployment of a decentralized annotated WiFi-mesh with servers and services help annotate the anthill. Such an annotated anthill is inclusive and navigable by all. Anthillhacks is a week long event near Bangalore, India that explores content creation and dissemination for all participants - from techies to low-literate villagers.

What will You learn?
The talk brings relevance of a number of technologies to a context where there is a huge diversity of literacy and explores inclusive approaches of content creation during and after the event. We hope this talk provides a peek of the issues on the other side of world.

Session Three: The Value in Community Networks | Constructing Connection
In the journey to connect the unconnected and to ensure access to those who are not on the web, we often times find ourselves in conversations around community networks where technology and the web itself is valued as an ends without engaging in any conversation around its purpose and the value it brings, nor how it (might) affect the individuals and communities that it was designed for.

The value of the network and the values of the community that needs to govern the community network becomes invisible and rendered secondary. The concepts and feelings are valid when we are part of communities and when start to understand what things are like from a community perspective.

In this moderated introspective workshop session Sol and cynthia will facilitate a playful session to help all of us address complex concepts, affects and questions: How are we weaving relationships around technology? What are the core values embedded with technology and access to the web? How do we bring the introspection to translate it into our scenario and in our work?

How do we weave this deconstruction into our scenarios? How do we connect? What groups are there that we can carry on beyond DWeb? What is the language that we are using? What input do we give as communities and how does that weave back into the designer’s work?

User vs Consumer and The seesaw of power and responsibility

Where is our line of our responsibility when we are exposing people to X (replace X with safety, privacy, access to a consumerist world that has nothing to do with village living) – what are our ideas around responsibility and care? What do we understand by information, transparency and guidance? What are the effects on a community with a product or a policy that someone designs from the outside?

What is the middle ground? What are our boundaries and where does our peace and freedom lie?
You neither impose nor take on anyone else?

We don’t have to constrain ourselves but rather question our positionalities.
We will take a break from our busy minds and take a walk outside of our heads and land into our values. (ethics and care).

This session is not only about introspection, it’s about connection.

Session Rundown
We expect the session to last around 75 mins.
We would want to be a in a cozy and fun space that allows people to move and sit relaxed on the floor.
We would also need paper, tape and different colors pens.

#FutureisNEAR: Crypto-Prototyping Series--Part 4 (Building the Future)
Join us for a multi-day journey from ideation to deployment of your decentralized app on the NEAR blockchain. We will come up with ideas for dApps based on a taxonomy of possible blockchain use cases, then work together to create and deploy working prototypes in a hands-on workshop. We will finish off the series by exploring ways we can support each other to take our projects into the real world beyond dWeb camp.

Hopes & Dreams
We would love to get a cadre of hacker-organizers and hacker-entrepreneurs building apps on the NEAR blockchain. We also want to be the base-level protocol that supports a huge number of practical, 'get your hands dirty' projects that walk the balance between gaining mainstream adoption and enabling socially-regenerative technologies to take root in the world. Our hope is that by supporting a bunch of people to prototype their dream apps at dWeb camp that we can seed some of those projects so that they then continue to build them in the real world.

Participation
Anyone can participate. You will need a laptop, particularly for the prototyping session. Experience with Javascript is ideal but not necessary, and coding experience is very relevant but you can still join in if you don't have coding experience. Kids are welcome as long as they are interested in participating in discussions and being involved in designing and programming.

Why Participate?
Join us if you would like to connect with others who are frustrated by unnecessary and overhyped blockchain projects and want to focus on projects that actually use the core aspects of blockchains to enable new social realities. Join if you want to write a blockchain smart contract in Typescript, and without making your users immediately deal with the complexities of private keys. Join if you want motivation to create the idea that has been in the back of your mind for a while and support from other builders to take your project back into the world at the end of dWeb camp.

Decentralized Self Sovereign Isomorphic Trust Graphs
What if all our decentralized apps and platforms could share trust/ratings/attestation information, in the form of portable cryptographically signed claims?

What if this self-sovereign, user owned and controlled, privately sharable trust network could become the backbone to unite our many disparate decentralized web apps and platforms?

Finally, what if by uniting our networks in this way we could snowball into an effectively larger, deeper, more powerful network effect than today's legacy social networks and chat apps?

Here are the features that seem to me most needed to make this work well:

- A simple ratings/claims interop format defined by a set of core fields (proposed: `source`, `target`, semantic `content`, normalized scalar `value`)
- Isomorphic translation between formats (e.g. JSON LD Verifiable Claims, IETF Reputons) - Platform independent (e.g. Holo, Ethereum, Blockstack, etc)
- Storage independent (e.g. IPFS, DAT, GUN, etc)
- Cryptographically signed, with a keypair using any common algorithm

Hopes & Dreams
To join together with like-minded decentralists working on projects that would benefit from generic, interoperable trust graphs based on cryptographically signed claims. Let's band together and lift all our boats, by creating allowing users to expand their trust network across multiple decentralized apps and platforms, in a self-sovereign data landscape.

Participation
We'll share and map projects we are working on that would benefit from such a framework, mapping out
- what ratings/claims/attestations they would create
- what would be useful for users to share across multiple apps
- what data would benefit our app to receive from a trust network infrastructure

Why Participate?
To find synergies between our projects via a shared trust/ratings/claims/attestations infrastructure.

Followed by facilitated mapping of the projects present in the room.

Invitation:
We invite you to polish up your experiments, your innovations, that crazy passion project you did nights and weekends. It's time to spark ideas, start conversations, and have some fun.

This doesn't have to be about decentralization! This shouldn't be a product to pitch. We want you to share something that excites you. From raver lights to that app you coded in your spare time, bring a Science Fair project to share. You can set it and forget it if it's a demo that needs no explanation!

Presenters:
We'll give you a 3 foot round cocktail table, power and an internet connection. You do the rest! Bring your laptop to give 1-on-1 demos. Or set up your display with good signs and explainers so you can go explore the Camp! Then come back every so often to talk to Campers about your project.

Goal:

PLAN - Community Collaboration Software
PLAN is a Community Operating System that will allow people with few resources to conduct real-time logistical planning, and coordinate with high reliability, persistence, and privacy. PLAN incorporates the following design characteristics: Data Redundancy; Total Data Privacy; Total Data Ownership; Community Centric Permissions; Offline First Operation; Native Spatial UX; Spatial UX App Support; Hardware Agnostic; Pluggable; Extensible; Gatekeeperless; Distributed Infrastructure

Hopes & Dreams
Beyond DWeb, we envision PLAN being the world's first truly open, architecturally distributed, and spatially immersive operating system. At PLAN Systems, we believe people profoundly benefit from having the tools to connect with each other, manage common resources, and to engage in meaningful projects. PLAN is a spatial collaboration and communication tool for teams, groups, and organizations, with a highly adaptable interface -- we dream of a future where integrated productivity tools allow communities to organize, visualize their environment, and be digitally self-reliant.

Participation
Anyone can participate, but engineers and designers are our target audience. Some demo exhibit preparation is required. We will be setting up demo workstations running PLAN that can be used to demonstrate and perform live demos. We will facilitate the installation of PLAN on other workstations so that they can be “invited” into the community we create. Any information that event coordinators or other projects would like to share about the different projects attending, or the details about the specific area could be pre-populated, and refined on site.

Why participate
Why participate: The best reason to get involved is to participate in building the community centric operating system that we all want and deserve. We will lead engineering and security talks, lead PLAN hackathons to interested participants, and invite participants to ask the toughest questions about PLAN during the entire event period. We envision participants using a spatial map to orient themselves to the camp area, be able to discover information about other participant projects, and conduct realtime communications on site. Interactivity envisioned: “Offline First” location based messaging, discover information about the space and participant projects, pin a note to a community message board, add yourself to a contacts map.

Session Rundown
We will be providing a demonstration of the PLAN Data Model in action, discussing key design pillars of the architecture, channel adapter protocols, as well as presenting the latest development progress in Unity 3D. Discussion will be geared towards facilitating collaboration, engineering, and design sessions to create an interactive, geospatial map of the event space. Participants can add information about their project into the Dweb PLAN community repo or will be able to experience navigating the community on their own.as development time permits. Collab Goals: By the end of the collab, participants to be able to visually explore and interact with the event space through a 3D digital map experienced though PLAN and DWeb contributors. PLAN is an open source software platform being developed for communities and organizations to securely collaborate and become digitally self-reliant. We have enough material for multiple engaging 2-4 hour sessions.

Community networks are networks collectively owned and managed by the community for non-profit and community purposes. They are constituted by collectives, indigenous communities or non-profit civil society organizations that exercise their right to communicate, under the principles of democratic participation of their members, equity, gender equality, diversity and plurality. The information on the network design and operation is open and accessible, allowing and favoring the extension of the network by the users. Community networks promote local services and content, promote net neutrality and free interconnection and transit agreements with networks offering reciprocity.

DIY Cocktails & Snacks
In the spirit of radical sharing, BYOB for our community-created cocktail hour. Bring your favorite beverages and snacks to share. We'll provide some noshes, key cocktail-making utensils, soda water & ice to get you started. Plus homemade shrubs!

What is a shrub? Shrubs are an acidulated concoction of fruit, aromatics, sugar, and vinegar. The word shrub is derived from the Arabic word sharab, which means “to drink.” These syrups, once common in colonial America, have found new life with the resurgence of the craft cocktail. Also deliciously refreshing with soda water over ice. Bring your creativity and cocktail recipes as we'll be serving the following (while supplies last):

Thursday: Strawberry Mint Shrub
Friday: Ginger Lime Shrub
Saturday: Blueberry Basil Shrub

Plus enjoy Guyaki Mate, Kind Bars, Boochcraft Kombucha, and Nomadic Coffee from our generous in-kind sponsors!

NOTE: Please bring your own cups too...after all, we are camping!

Animated Film Fest: Spirited Away
The final film in our trilogy by the legendary Japanese animator, Hayao Miyazaki: his Oscar-award winning masterpiece, Spirited Away.

The Story: Spirited Away tells the story of Chihiro Ogino (Hiiragi), a moody 10-year-old girl who, while moving to a new neighbourhood, enters the world of Kami (spirits) of Japanese Shinto folklore.  After her parents are transformed into pigs by the witch Yubaba (Natsuki), Chihiro takes a job working in Yubaba's bathhouse to find a way to free herself and her parents and return to the human world.

In 2017, the NYT names this "the best film of the 21st Century (so far)."
In 2016, it was rated the 4th best picture of all time by film critics around the world.

I've never been quite so sure why Spirited Away became this break-out hit:  the top-grossing Japanese film of all time.  Is it really better than the other Miyazaki masterpieces?  Well, if you come for three consecutive nights, you can decide.

Battle Decks: Military Powerpoint Karaoke
Military Powerpoint Karaoke: a night of “Powerpoint Karaoke” using presentations in the Military Industrial Powerpoint Complex collection at archive.org that were thoughtfully extracted during the Internet Archive’s 2018 end-of-term web crawl.

Also known as “Battle Decks,” Powerpoint Karaoke is an improvisational and art event where audience members give a presentation using a set of Powerpoint slides that they’ve never seen before. There are three rules: 1) The presenter cannot see the slides before presenting; 2) The presenter delivers each slide in succession without skipping slides or going back; and 3) The presentation ends when all slides are presented, or after 5 minutes (whichever comes first). The presentations will be delivered by you -- the audience members who sign up.

This event will use, as its source material, a curated collection of the Internet Archive’s Military Industrial Powerpoint Complex, a special project for the Internet Archive's 20th Anniversary in which IA staff extracted all the Powerpoint files openly available from the government’s “.mil” web domain. This collection contains over 57,000 Powerpoint decks, each charged with material that ranges from the violent to the banal, featuring attack modes, leadership styles, harness types, and modes for requesting vacation days from the US Military. As a whole, this collection forms a unique snapshot into our government’s Military Industrial Complex.
