Redecentralize

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.

tech savvy. If you want to give me a deadline and tell me who your target audience is, I'll do it. I've replace Chrome with Firefox, and Google Search with DuckDuckGo. For Google Drive, Music, Picasa, Calendar, and Contacts, I dug an old desktop out of my closet /...\ care for ownCloud's Newsreader, so I installed Tiny Tiny RSS on my server and have been happy with that as a Reader replacement. To replace Documents, I've just fallen back to using FocusWriter and syncing the ODT files through ownCloud, though I hear live document editing /...\ version 6 of ownCloud, which hasn't worked itself down to the repo I'm on yet. I've replaced Google Plus with diaspora*. I looked into hosting my own diaspora* pod, but that required more expertise than I have, so I just use a community pod. For my Chromebook

important is it to find alternative funding models in order to produce work of similar quality than the centralised models one intends to replace? To me it also evoked a more general question — why do we believe that current attempts at decentralised infrastructure will fare any better

For example if anyone ever breaks SHA256 it would compromise the entire blockchain. Then what do you do, start
