THE PROJECT MAP:This summer somebody broke the Internet.
We think there are several amazing projects working to fix it.
We painted a map of these projects and placed them according to
the architectural space they are filling:
Yellow is for projects in development while green is for those that are available. Red illustrates brands that lose their monopoly condition once the respective layers are fully operational whereas light red indicates faulty technologies that we shall offer alternatives to. See the map page for elaboration on that.
UPCOMING EVENTS:#youbroketheinternet will present an assembly of
sessions at the Chaos Communication Congress 30C3
aimed at bringing people together willing to re-invent the
essential Internet functionality on a privacy-aware foundation.
It seems like there is no functional business model for privacy,
that's why we cannot entrust companies or standards organisations
to pull this off. The workshops will be roughly oriented at the
architecture map you see above and all the projects mentioned
there are officially invited. Stay tuned.
P.S. In order to access the 30c3 website without certificate warnings you need to get friends with the CAcert community.
UPCOMING ACTION:We are preparing a EU law proposal to require
obfuscated and end-to-end encrypted
communications in all telephony and
computer appliances sold after 2014.
The law shall include ways to ensure
its correct implementation and a transition
path from the existing unencrypted systems.
PAST EVENTS: WORKSHOP FOR A GNU CONSENSUS
On the week-end of August 24-25, 2013, we gathered at Berlin's CCC headquarters to develop a rough consensus on what the criteria should be for a GNU internet and to prepare for the upcoming sessions at 30C3.
PAST EVENTS: TALKS FOR A GNU INTERNET
This is the video
from the talks given in Berlin on August 1st.
Over 100.000 people have watched it already — so should you.
The talks are in English, even though the welcoming words are in German.
Carlo von lynX gave a presentation on how secushare intends to provide messaging and Facebook-like functionality on top of GNUnet. Keywords:
Richard Stallman and Jacob Appelbaum reminded the audience of the relevance of free software, free hardware and the pervasive use of cryptography and responded to questions. Denis and Torsten spoke introductory and closing words.P.S. Pirate politics is useful, but we are not a project of the Pirate movement.
