Mass censorship and the emergence of “splinternets” challenge global digital communications. Such internet fragmentations have economic, political, and humanitarian consequences. Current solutions for bypassing network filtering may not stand up to the challenges presented by censorship-in-depth and isolated networks. Wireless communications, decentralized networking and self-hosted solutions are necessary for internet resilience. Join us at SplinterCon, the first conference dedicated to identifying and beginning to challenge connectivity restrictions of the splinternet.
The SplinterCon is a platform to:
- Analyze the practices and impacts of network isolation and shutdowns
- Evaluate existing and future tech solutions for communication with and within sovereign networks.
- Invest in practical and user-oriented solutions for connectivity and content distribution across digital barriers
