## Research & development
Imagine an Internet where you own your own home at your own address. This is a place that’s private by default where others can easily reach you but where you decide what you want to share and with whom. That’s what we’re developing. We call it Project Tincan.

### Site.js
Develop, test, and deploy your secure static or dynamic personal web site with zero configuration. Site.js is the first tool to come out of Project Tincan.
## What we do
[Visit SiteJS.org](https://sitejs.org)
We divide our time roughly 75%, 15% and 10% between research and development, technological regulation, and awareness raising, advocacy, and education.
## Awareness raising, advocacy, education, and regulation
<ol class='emphasised-numbers'>
<li>
<h3>Research and development.</h3>
<p>We’re developing a hybrid Small Tech platform to bridge the centralised web and peer-to-peer. We call it Project Tincan.</p>
<!-- <p>We’re working to ensure that everyone owns their own own home at their own address on the Internet. Your home is private by default and linked to all over your various devices. While others can easily reach you if they know your address, you decide what you want to share and with whom. We call our research and development programme Project Tincan.</p> -->

<h3>Technological regulation.</h3>
<p>We reduce the harms of surveillance capitalists by limiting their surveillance capabilities on the centralised web with Better Blocker, our tracker blocker and self-curated tracker database.</p>

<h3>This is list item number three</h3>
<p>We can use these jazzy list to set the text apart from other text.</p>

<h3>Short header</h3>
<p>But this paragraph is much longer, becuse it has a lot more to say. It will go on to a second line, perhaps a third or fourth. We want any length of text to work in this area really.</p>

## Too long, didn’t read?
If you prefer watching and listening to reading – or in addition to it – here’s a talk Laura and I gave on Small Technology at the ThinkAbout Conference in May, 2019.
