"I believe strongly," writes Ben Werdmuller, "that a decentralized, user-centered model for the web is the best way to advance it as an application platform." I agree. And many of the initiatives he cites are at least part of the solution: "The Diso Project is turning the WordPress open source blogging tool into a decentralized digital identity through an array of open standards, and the project's Chris Messina has a lot of wise things to say about its development; Laconi.ca is a decentralized microblogging platform, whose Open Microblogging standard may be adaptable into a more widely-scoped technology; The Open Stack is a set of developing technologies that address some of the issues; Marc Canter's Open Mesh treatise goes into detail on many of the issues."
