Open web award

The Open Web Award was a special collaboration project between Mozilla Drumbeat for the 2011 festival. On this page you can see our previous nominees and winners.

 

The critical discussion of the politics of open and closed systems will continue in new formats.

The 2011 Open Web Book Sprint, the follow-up to the 2010 Collaborative Futures Book Sprint, took place at the Collegium Hungaricum Berlin (.CHB), between 17 and 21 January 2011, in the lead up to transmediale.11. During this time six sprinters – Michelle  Thorne, Christopher Lee Adams, Jon Phillips, Alejandra Perez, Mick Fuzz and Barry Threw – were 'locked' into a room at .CHB to produce an entire book from scratch. This year's sprint was also facilitated by Adam Hyde from FLOSS Manuals, with a book that intends to define the contours of what an Open Web should and could be, and why it is essential for guaranteeing our own cultural expression and freedoms.
