MisInfoCon London

09:00-17:00

This year, MisinfoCon London will focus on the challenges that misinformation raises for civil society in three areas: elections, media literacy, and algorithmic society. We invite the policy, academic, research and technology community to join us in learning about current projects and initiatives and brainstorm practical applications or recommendations related to these topics.


Shaping the web monetization ecosystem with Grant for the Web

13:00-17:00

Grant for the Web will kickstart a healthier internet ecosystem built on open standards. This ecosystem will require the thoughtful design in order to be inclusive and accessible. From documentation to support, from infrastructure to technology, ensuring that these aspects are equitable and human centered will be essential to building a movement of people inspired to spark new business models for the web.

During this workshop, you will help to design, grow, and launch a community of people — creators, publishers, fans, supporters — interested in bringing more independence and control over how content is distributed and monetized on the web. We will use a use unconference approach to democratize participation and attendees will be invited and expected to contribute.
