RWOT12, the next Rebooting the Web of Trust event, will occur in Los Angeles, California in Spring of 2023! We look forward to our first return to North America since RWOT7 in 2018! In the meantime, take a look at our RWOT11 repo for what went on at our September 2022 workshop in The Hague. Draft Documents contains our work from the workshop and Final Documents has the finished work to date.

What is RWOT? It’s a new take on the classic model of a web of trust that was first suggested by PGP. Our goal is to support our community in creating decentralized models of identity and information, to ensure that we can remain in control of our assets, our accounts, and ourselves online!

What Does RWOT Do? RWOT consists of virtual salons and in-person design workshops. They allow us to germinate new ideas and produce finalized content that present those ideas to the larger community. Virtual salons crowdsource inspiration and deliver statements, while design workshops produce at least five white papers on topics decided by the group to have the greatest impact on the future.

Please consider joining us for the next RWOT event!
