FreedomBox - Helps You Stay Free!
On saturday 25. of May I gave a talk about FreedomBox at the "Claim back your device" track of LinuxTag in Berlin.
LinuxTag is a fairly big annual conference about (yes, you guessed right) Linux and related topics.
The FreedomBox is a project to help non-geeks care about their personal privacy when online, same ways as geeks have practiced for a decade or more. Concrete goal is to design a small, cheap physical box similar to an internet gateway or wifi router but with three additions:
- Easy and intuitive to setup and personalize for non-geeks
- Offers routines to help you protect your privacy
- Offers routines to let you help others in need of privacy
"Privacy" is commonly mistaken as "secrecy": Privacy is to keep you in control of your information, so that sharing or keeping to yourself is truly your own choice.
Thanks a lot especially to Matthias Kirschner for inviting me as a speaker!
