FreedomBox v Facebook – Eben Moglen from Nick B-T on Vimeo.
Freedom Box Project
Inspired by Eben Moglen’s vision of a small, cheap and simple computer that serves freedom in the home. We are building a Debian based platform for distributed applications.
- ease of use
We live in a world where our use of the network is mediated by organizations that often do not have our best interests at heart. By building software that does not rely on a central service, we can regain control and privacy. By keeping our data in our homes, we gain useful legal protections over it. By giving back power to the users over their networks and machines, we are returning the Internet to its intended peer-to-peer architecture.
In order to bring about the new network order, it is paramount that it is easy to convert to it. The hardware it runs on must be cheap. The software it runs on must be easy to install and administrate by anybody. It must be easy to transition from existing services.There are a number of projects working to realize a future of distributed services; we aim to bring them all together in a convenient package.
