The current model of the internet does not empower the individual. Organizations solicit personal data for access to their services and platforms. These barriers to entry can lead to exclusivity and discrimination. A user must create an account that provides at least a name and email, and often age, date of birth, race and ethnicity for every online act. This data is shared with third parties, subjecting the user to a harassment of unsolicited emails, ads, and messages. Once the information is in an entity's hands there is no telling what other uses it is exploited for.
