What is the open web?
The best definition I have seen is from the Mozilla Foundation:
An open web is a web by and for all its users, not select gatekeepers or governments.
At Mozilla, we compare the open web to a global public resource, like clean water or the environment. The open web is something we all depend on: to communicate and create, to work and play, to buy and sell. And like any other natural resource, it’s fragile. It needs care, because it can be polluted: by harassment and abuse, by misinformation, by bad public policy.Mark Surman, Executive Director of the Mozilla Foundation

I will add to this post as I discover additional resources.
