We’ve had enough of digital monopolies and surveillance capitalism. We want an alternative world that works for everyone, just like the original intention of the web and net.
We seek a world of open platforms and protocols with real choices of applications and services for people. We care about privacy, transparency and autonomy. Our tools and organisations should fundamentally be accountable and resilient.
Dear all, I'm sorry I could not make it this week-end, I hope you have great discussions! As I know Julien is among you, maybe he can tell about this initiative that we have in France since 2013 : https://hackadon.org/fr/ "Hackadons" are events sponsored by companies or initiatives where we give the money to participants so that they can give it back to projects contributing to the commons. Here is the manifesto : We fight for a (re)decentralized Internet. Redecentralizing Internet is a manyfold challenge: it is a technical, a legal and political one. But it is also a financial challenge. To many free softwares and common goods projects are not financially supported. To many of these projects rely on the good will and the free time of a fistul of people. Hackadons' goal is to foster fix this, project by project. I hope the "financial" dimension will be part of your discussions, and I'm sorry again I could not make it! Cheers, -- Bastien
