The purpose of this blog is to spread free (in the freedom sense), federated, decentralized Internet technologies. Communication Freedom is born as the international version of our spanish blog ‘Comunicate Libremente‘.
We believe that communication over the Internet of today is not what it should be. It is controlled by big corporations bent on earning money, while completely disregarding user privacy. In fact, they do just the opposite: they sell their data and have serious security problems. Being able to communicate without restrictions or external control should be one of the fundamental rights on the Internet.
There are realistic, working alternatives. Alternatives based on Free Software, open, and decentralized, built on top of standard protocols, which guarantee privacy and control over your data, like Jabber/XMPP, Pump.io or Diaspora.
