Eben Moglen explained the FreedomBox in a short interview with the [url="http://freedomboxfoundation.org/cbs"]CBS Evening News[/url]. We also have a [url="http://freedomboxfoundation.org/doc/flyer.pdf"]one page flyer[/url] that explains the box quickly and easily to lay people. Print and distribute it at your next conference!
[b] What is FreedomBox?[/b][list]
[*]Email and telecommunications that protects privacy and resists eavesdropping
[*]A publishing platform that resists oppression and censorship.
[*]An organizing tool for democratic activists in hostile regimes.
[*]An emergency communication network in times of crisis.
[/list]
FreedomBox will put in people's own hands and under their own control encrypted voice and text communication, anonymous publishing, social networking, media sharing, and (micro)blogging.
Much of the software already exists: onion routing, encryption, virtual private networks, etc. There are tiny, low-watt computers known as "[url="https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Plug_computer"]plug servers[/url]" to run this software. The hard parts is integrating that technology, distributing it, and making it easy to use without expertise. The harder part is to decentralize it so users have no need to rely on and trust centralized infrastructure.
That's what FreedomBox is: we integrate privacy protection on a cheap plug server so everybody can have privacy. Data stays in your home and can't be mined by governments, billionaires, thugs or even gossipy neighbors.
With FreedomBoxes in their homes, anybody, regardless of technical skill, can easily enjoy secure, private, even anonymous communication!

Sounds like it. Bring it on. The more competition the better for us.
