for a better internet

Connected Humanity

The internet is the world’s most popular computer network. It began as an academic research project in 1969, and became a global commercial network in the 1990s. Today it is used by more than 2 billion people around the world. Today it is hard to fathom a world without the Internet. The Internet provides instant access to information. Search engines make this information easy to attain. Besides gaining knowledge, internet users have an endless supply of entertainment. The internet makes it possible to do banking and shopping from the comfort of your own home. Thanks to the internet, many people are able to work remotely from anywhere in the world. However raising issues of privacy, survaillance and security can be alarming. We made a collection of great organizations that dedicate their work from a safer online environment, to universally accessible libraries of literature or art.
