Blog Entry Octet Stream Tell EU regulators: Net neutrality isn't just for the US and India!
by Zak Rogoff published Jun 24, 2016 last modified Jun 29, 2016 10:50 AM
Net neutrality exists when Internet service providers (ISPs) must allow equal access to everything on the Web, rather than favoring some sites over others. It's a bedrock condition for Internet freedom, but ISPs generally oppose it because it prevents them from charging companies extra for privileged access to the network -- making a video from one Web site load faster than video on other sites, for example.

Blog Entry GNU MediaGoblin offers what you've been missing in an Internet media-sharing system
by Zak Rogoff published Oct 11, 2012 last modified Nov 02, 2017 12:35 PM
Today the Free Software Foundation is proud and excited to assist the GNU MediaGoblin project in its fundraising effort. MediaGoblin's volunteer team is working on a next-generation social web system where users will share their experiences through photos, videos and audio, all without running proprietary software. This project is ambitious, not just because it will support multiple media types, but also because it will use a special new network system called federation, which unifies a group of separately-owned servers into a single interface for the user. This means that anyone wishing to start a MediaGoblin server will be able to do so, optionally customizing the code to their needs and offering unique options to users.
