How it worked

Contributions' examples
Contributions' examples
  1. In mid-December 2023 we started asking privacy enthusiasts to share their personal favourite pro-privacy projects, news, innovation & anti-privacy doxxers.

  2. The majority of the contributions are public & can be found on Twitter/X: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 etc. While some contributors wanted to remain anon.

  3. Results were aggregated into a sheet (which will be shared publicly later on).

  4. The highest “votes” will define the shortlist of the key pro-privacy tech defined by the community.

Note: we asked participants to avoid mentioning affiliated projects, so the poll would be more accurate.

The next article featuring “Key news & events” (longlist) of 2023 will be published tomorrow.
