Blog Entry Troff document Ask Reddit to upvote user freedom by serving no nonfree JavaScript
by Zak Rogoff published Dec 27, 2013 last modified Jan 02, 2014 04:55 PM
Reddit is a major Internet hub that's home to lots of awesome communities, and it's always been very supportive of computer user freedom. In 2008, its admins took the admirable step of freeing the vast majority of its codebase, which was a significant contribution to the free software world. We're appreciative of Reddit's role in free software, as well as its contributions to humanity in the form of cat pictures side-by-side with high-brow political discourse. That's why we think that it would be fitting for Reddit to take the next step in its free software journey, by updating its site to run without any nonfree JavaScript.

Blog Entry Cancel Netflix if you value freedom
by Zak Rogoff published Jul 12, 2013 last modified Jul 12, 2013 05:15 PM
For the last few months, we've been raising an outcry against Encrypted Media Extensions (EME), a plan by Netflix and a block of other media and software companies to squeeze support for Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) into the HTML standard, the core language of the Worldwide Web. The HTML standard is set by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), which this block of corporations has been heavily lobbying as of late.
