Making the FreedomBox a Reality

Following up on the inspiration of Eben Moglen's talk

Inspired by Eben Moglen's vision of a small, cheap and simple computer that serves freedom in the home, we are building a Debian-based platform for distributed applications.

There are a number of projects working to realize a future of distributed services; we aim to bring them all together in a convenient package.

Freedom Box is about gathering the software on inexpensive hardware to give people their freedom back through aggregation and transition of cloud services to friend to friend services.

Freedom Box is about:

* privacy
* control
* ease of use
* dehierarchicalization
