Slogan for #openweb: “Technology’s job is to hold the trust in place”

Some “native” examples we are working on: Principles for #OGB (Open Governance Body) Consensus and Engagement: Decisions are valid only if a wide range of people are involved, ensuring that the collective enforces the consensus.
