Lots of public policies have open-source technical issues hidden inside. We focus on those issues, check related law and policy, try to find out if there's any problem, or make initializing laws and policies, or advocating corrections.

Goals and Purposes

When facing the variety issues concerning technology and society, we know we can’t do it all. However, for those important issues which has less power, to act for advocacy will be critical.
