  • User behavior which informs strategic choices by platform operators;
  • Experiments in participatory governance, such as platform and data cooperativism.

  • Internet-focused think tanks and policy forums.
  • Coordinating the development and maintenance of popular FOSS technologies, mainly through formal organizations such as software foundations and private firms, but also through informal coordination in distributed online communities.
