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.

fancy word for proprietary software, or am I mistaken? In the interview, I had understood that the project was about "open source" solutions. Now, open source is already free software without ethics, but from there to "open read-only source", there's as huge

Fluidinfo, I'm have far too much fun and learning a lot in the meantime and it's good to imagine / play / build solutions as a mechanism for exploring a problem. To butcher an analogy, it's a large garden and may many flowers bloom. Finally, I think

awful lot of ideologies today assume that "progress" is "good", that "democracy" is "necessary", that "transparency" is "appropriate", or that "technology" will bring all solutions to all problems.  They often fail to consider the genealogy and diversity of situations and tend to remove from "the big picture" anything
