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.

This is my first email to this list so here's a short introduction :)
I am a free-software and open-education volunteer mainly working on
the XSCE (short for School Server Community Edition) project. I've
volunteered for the OLPC project from 2010-2014 and worked in the
field in Paraguay and Uruguay, and helped develop the Australian
version ofÂ OLPC's OS.
At XSCE, we are a active global volunteer community working to foster
grassroots learning and education in the remotest corners of the
world. Right now our model of implementation is to have offline
content-loaded servers hosted in schools and villages providing access
to media and collaboration tools. If there is internet connectivity,
the server becomes a gateway. We have pilots in Haiti, India, Ghana,
Nepal and a few other places :)
The idea of a decentralized web is very central to our approach of
doing things. Looking forward to some great conversation and
P.S. To find out more about XSCE, you may head to schoolserver.org
(ugly wiki), xsce.org (wip website) or just drop in at #schoolserver
on freenode and say hi. We also meet every thursday on (yuck) skype :-)
