The internet embodies some of our deepest hopes for human progress and it has become an essential resource as water, fire, food or shelter. In Brazil this resource has been used to organize us to pressure the public power, access quality education at all levels and boost the economy. But it  has also been used to overthrow democracy in the last election and to create space for  hate speech and political persuasion. My list focuses on the intersection of democracy and privacy and security, openness and digital inclusion.
