What is OpenD/I?

Today a handful of corporations control 90% of the world’s data and IT infrastructure and we are supposed to trust them. OpenD/I is a non-profit initiative and a dedicated tech summit to bring together a global convergence of innovators, thinkers, and change-makers in the tech industry to bring awareness of the significance and urgencies around concentrated power over our data, and IT infrastructure that will be pivotal in shaping the next 10-20 years of the our society.

The Information asymmetry has led to social inequality, scandals, polarization, and corruption. often, it has even led to war. Centralized data control is a potential chokepoint for innovation, a privacy concern, and a bottleneck for the free flow of data.
