The current Internet is controlled by large corporations that see users as a product. The new Internet should be responsible and democratized, protecting individual privacy, neutrality, and security.
The Internet should be inclusive to all of humanity. We are building a collectively-owned (farmers) Internet that is deployed everywhere and accessible to all, not just in datacenters or high-income countries.

For Weynand, the Internet is where the next generation will expand their minds and innovate. He experienced this first-hand when his son outsmarted him by learning online how to boil an egg in a microwave. Such learning ability should be available globally, sustainably and efficiently.
