Data Roads Foundation
"We already have roads for vehicles. We use them to transport people and their goods throughout the world. These roads are defined by a set of standards and expectations that make high-speed travel more available and safer for everyone.
What we need now is roads for our data. We have many of the necessary standards for our data travel devices, like cell phones and netbooks. We even have an “Information Super Highway” to transport our data around the world. What we don’t have yet is local data roads — Internet surface streets, alleys, and cul-de-sacs. We shouldn’t have to use any “Super Highway” just to visit our neighbors.
The Data Roads Foundation will help build and maintain these roads for everyone, because all roads should lead to all people.
As of February 20th, 2013, Data Roads Foundation is an official project of the 501c3 non-profit organization Empowerment WORKS, Inc. (EIN: 31-179-6801)" (http://www.dataroads.org/blog/about/)
