Session Topic: Freedom Box Danube Edition
Convener: Markus Sabadello
Notes-taker: Markus Sabadello
Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:
I demo'd a prototype of a FreedomBox called "Danube Edition", which has a number of functions for a more free, private, and decentralized Internet, e.g.:
Running web applications such as Known (a personal publishing platform), OwnCloud, Mailpile.
The box can provide an "Unhosted remoteStorage" server, and an XDI personal cloud. It can also act as a router and send Internet traffic through Tor or a VPN.
The FreedomBox "Danube Edition" has a programmable light which provides visual feedback when one's personal data is accessed.
