Contributors & Supporters

Open Web Advocacy is a not-for-profit organization made up of a loose group of software engineers from all over the world, who work for many different companies who have come together to fight for the future of the open web by providing regulators, legislators and policy makers the intricate technical details that they need to understand the major anti-competitive issues in our industry and potential ways to solve them.

Stuart Langridge and Bruce Lawson were interviewed for a piece in The Register – Web devs rally to challenge Apple App Store browser rules, and we have listed coverage on our press page.

A number of our contributers wish to remain private as they are concerned that publicly confronting gatekeepers will cause issues with their jobs or businesses.
