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.
Whats the list of services you're using instead of Google ones?
Would love a writeup of what you're using and how good or bad you've found it!
Maybe a blog post for our blog once it starts? (should be soonishl
My thanks to Redecentralize for spreading the cause, and for this list
Redecentralization became important to me personally when Google shut
down Reader. Until that day, I was a Chromebook-toting, Android-wielding
fanboy. Although Reader wasn't the first Google service pulled out from
under me, I vowed it would be the last one. I've since cancelled my
Google account and have replaced almost all of the Google services I
used with self-hosted solutions that I control.
I'm interested in learning about the various alternatives to
centralization, and I'm happy to share what little knowledge and
experience I've gleaned in trying to be decentralized.
