Who We Are
Name: Restore Us Institute is about restoring protection of the American people – “us” and “The U.S.” – from Internet unaccountability harms.
Tagline: ‘Protect people.’ Encapsulates our reason for being, intention, and passion.
Logo: Pictures how RUI research & education sheds the light of public accountability, at the epicenter of three circles of influence – The Public, Government, and Technology.
Policy Solution: Fully restore U.S. Constitutional accountability over the U.S. Internet. Only reasonable, universal, duty-based, solution that most can support and defend.
Research Solution: Innovative MacroInternetic Research and Help-Harm Analysis. Can document problem’s cause-effects, scale/scope, and justify practical solutions.
Education Solution: Public scrutiny can expose the fabled ‘emperor has no clothes’ here. Government/Public unaware of indefensible problem/cause & defensible solution.
Coalition Solution: Coalesce around common universal problem, solution, & standards. Internet accountability advocates are stronger together and all need critical mass.
Solution Set Inspiration: is MADD, Mothers Against Drunk Driving’s 501c3 model. Pioneered public accountability via research, education, and coalition-building.
