There are major problems with our current community data structures.
First, as much data as there is that gets collected, it’s often controlled by corporations. Even when data is public, it’s not available at enough of a granular level for communities to use. Finally, whatever data that communities are able to access often fails to reflect their interests and desires.
What if there were a way for communities to design, develop, and utilize their own data structures?
