Last year at Drupal Europe, representatives from Drupal, Joomla, and WordPress’s privacy initiatives met together and compared notes from our respective experiences in a friendly, mutually supportive setting. We realised that although our work is structured very differently from code, structure, and project governance perspectives, we had much more in common that that which divided us.
This led us to agree to put in a proposal to the Drupal project to formally support a permanent cross-project privacy working group. The idea is that by providing a common space for open source privacy teams to support each other through practical knowledge, code libraries, policy briefings, open standards, and the spirit of collaboration, we can help to raise the standards of user protection across the open web.
At Drupal London, we will provide an update on where the plans are, what we hope to achieve, and how you can get involved.
We are people of enormous power and influence over the web. I empower digital professionals to use that power wisely. As a tech policy and regulation specialist, I educate the makers of the web on the policy issues which impact their work, inspire communities to participate constructively in the regulatory sphere, and represent the tech sector in the advocacy processes which shape the web. Hire me to write, speak, or consult.
