First Draft’s mission has moved to the Information Futures Lab at Brown University. This website was last updated in January 2023 and is hosted in perpetuity by the Internet Archive.


Over its years of operation (2015-2022), First Draft’s staff and collaborators created a treasure trove of thinking, training, research, tools and more on how to combat online mis- and disinformation. Organized in the following six categories, you will find our best work on understanding the challenges posed by information disorder.
