The Web's Big Build (WBB) is an open public initiative that anybody can contribute to.

No one can upgrade the web alone. It's something that we all do, together. Not as a sentiment. As the reality of how the upgrade works, because it relies on each of us owning our own Personal Online Data Stores (PODs) as the building blocks of a better, decentralised web.

The key people, organisations and communities developing the technology for the upgrade include:
  • Sir Tim Berners-Lee, who invented the web in 1989, then programmed the first web browser in 1990 while employed at European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN);
  • Inrupt, a start-up co-founded by Sir Berners-Lee to help ignite the Solid ecosystem; and
Building on these efforts, the WBB has been launched as an open public initiative, to give key stakeholders an opportunity to consider how to implement Web 3.0 collaboratively, using a public infrastructure management approach.

The initiative is being administered by Cameron Brenton, an Australian expert in public infrastructure planning, delivery and management.
