We are building the Distributed Press — a beginner friendly, open-source publishing tool for the distributed web. Aiming to empower authors, Distributed Press utilizes the distributed web to amplify free expression worldwide, while exposing sources of misinformation. 

Distributed Press originally emerged out of discussions between mai ishikawa sutton, Benedict Lau, and Udit Vira, of Hypha Worker Co-operative in 2019 following DWeb Camp. They wanted to develop a suite of tools that would enable people to publish web content to the DWeb, because they saw how problematic centralized publishing had become.

Our suite of tools aim to protect people’s publications from the whims of big gatekeepers. Mainstream corporate platforms centralize web content both technologically and organizationally, enabling them to censor websites, control how people use their services, and undermine their ability to receive fair compensation for their creative labor.
