What We're Working On
Giving everyone a voice in the future of the internet is our mission statement. That's why we have started a campaign to translate a set of essential articles into other languages. We have a good start with Spanish and Chinese content translated by a number of generous organizations. However, we do not want to stop here. The internet is a global entity that deserves to be understood and utilized by all. If you can contribute to this inititative in any way, please contact us.
