Doteveryone was established by Martha Lane Fox following her BBC Dimbleby lecture in 2015.
We are here to make the internet work for everyone
Doteveryone exists to understand and address the new set of moral and social challenges that have arrived with the internet, in order to help make life fairer and simpler for everyone in the UK.
Because the UK needs an informed alternative to the ‘dotcom view’
Our visions of the future are dominated by the interests of a few large technology companies. We’re not saying they’re wrong, but we’d like to provide balancing perspectives - examining data, privacy, AI, access, from a non-commercial, socially responsible point of view. We’re technologists but we understand and care about more than technology. We can help our leaders deliver better digital policy, help everyone get the skills they need to thrive in the new economy and help us all understand the new issues we face every day.
We’ll do it through prototypes and influence
As we identify emerging challenges we’ll quickly build prototypes to explore possible answers. Once we’ve found something that works we’ll find partners to help create change at every level. And use our communications channels and networks to influence the decision makers that matter and make those ideas mainstream.
