The Digital Democracy and Data Commons (DDDC) pilot came to an end. Yesterday we closed a 6-month process with the official presentation of the DECODE–Decidim technology and the DDDC Manifesto, for data sovereignty and commons. The event included an open debate with experts in the field of technology policies and the digital economy, with the Barcelona CTO Francesca Bria, hacker y public speaker Jaromil Rojo, research group Dimmons leader Mayo Fuster and Decidim coordinator Arnau Monterde, among others. It was also the public premiere of the DECODE technology for the signing of citizen Decidim petitions in a secure, transparent and data-enriched manner, as well as the DECODE personal data manager. Both innovations were used for the on-site signature of the manifesto.
The event was organized by the Internet Interdisciplinary Institute of the Open University of Catalonia (Tecnopolitica and Dimmons) and Barcelona Digital City (Barcelona City Council). My contribution consisted of presenting with Pol Colomer (Dribia) and Jaromil Rojo (Dyne.org), the technology for DDDC. In particular, I focused on the BarcelonaNow‘s improvements done by our team at Eurecat with the purpose of avoiding surveillance and extractivism by giving people ownership and exploitation of their personal data.
