leds->libre->desc As far as standards and protocols are concerned, the story of the Internet is one of free software. But its popularity and potential make big firms jealous. They would like to claim control of it by establishing closed code in locked systems that are not interoperable. To keep the Internet faithful to the founding principles which led to its success, it is important that there should be free apps on the Internet, that is to say, apps with opensource codes, accessible under free license.
leds->ethic->title Ethics
leds->ethic->desc We wish to support a participative and independent Internet. Exploitation, surveillance, censorship, and data appropriation are trends we refuse in favor of transparency (integrity), clearly displayed policies for users of the various services, and the refusal of all forms of discrimination.
leds->decent->title Decentralized
leds->decent->desc The genius of the Internet must dwell at the margins of the network in a peer-to-peer sharing dynamic, to avoid creating a Minitel 2.0. To insure equality for all concerned, from citizens to businesses, monopolies must not only be excluded, but also prevented from monopolizing personal or public data. Through clear tutorials explaining how to propagate free solutions for establishing a fairer Internet, we intend to facilitate the spreading of codes and a diversification of usages.
leds->solid->title Solidarity
leds->solid->desc Through the services we provide, we promote a model based on cost participation, resource sharing, and accessibility for the largest number of people. Any abuse will thus be avoided, for we all remain fully aware of our common interests. This model also has an educational purpose since, as we document the roll-out of services, many users will in their turn be able to share those resources.
