A distributed data community for the next generation Web.

Value-driven technology

Technology built by community, financed responsibly, and given away for free to the public

Community First

The Dat Foundation is a small non-profit group that provides social and technical infrastructure for the consortium of projects and working groups.

Transparent Funding

We believe information and communication technology should be transparently funded and operated.

Open Governance

At the scale of the web, every decision can have a massive impact on our political systems and social well-being. Dat is governed openly through a series of working groups.
