Building a new publishing ecosystem, based on open principles.
Reading and writing are central aspects of our intellectual lives. While written texts are not the only parts of our media landscape, they maintain a critical place in our culture, documenting human knowledge and experience.
The Rebus Foundation acts as an advocate and champion for new publishing models and technologies. We generate ideas and initiatives for reading and writing on the web, while bringing people and resources together.
