We want to follow the discussions we had about the EU Commissions Proposal of the “Digital Markets Act” and build a Special Interest Group about Interoperability, Interconnection and Data Portability Policy !
Unfortunately suboptimal incidents happen in the USA, so personally may I suggest to reach a group concencus in the beginning, what we now want to speak about too?
“[…] Corporate censorship of what a head of state can say is totally inacceptable! When will our institutions finally set up their own interoperable social media nodes (fediverse) and force big tech to interconnect?”
the remit of the Policy Group is primarily to liase with existing digital/tech political lobbying groups to bring awareness of relevant standards and W3C recommendations which can then be relayed at the right times and in the right places to politicians and policy makers. As part of this, the Policy Group may organise events, briefings, draft documentation, proposals, or open letters which can be co-signed by the SocialCG.
the Policy group can use its best judgement to decide which relevant groups to reach out to in its efforts
the Policy Group establishes a regular schedule to update the wider SocialCG with anything new.
the Policy Group will coordinate activities publicly on the SocialHub forum.
