Restart co-founder Ugo Vallauri spoke at Mozilla Festival (“MozFest”) 2017: the world’s leading festival for the open internet. Mozfest gathered together advocates for a ‘healthy internet’ and hardware is a big part of this.
We would like to suggest much more reflection and critical engagement within our digital inclusion peers about an unquestioning, passive “consumption” model, not only of the hardware itself, but of software and the infrastructure that fuels the internet.
