I am pleased to announce our first FreedomBox software release. The FreedomBox 0.1 image is available here (.torrent) (sha512sum: 867f5bf462102daef82a34165017b9e67ed8e09116fe46edd67730541bbfb731083850ab5e28ee40bdbc5054cb64e4d0e46a201797f27e0b8f0d2881ef083b40). This 0.1 version is primarily a developer release, which means that it focuses on architecture and infrastructure rather than finish work. The exception to this is privoxy-freedombox, the web proxy discussed in previous updates, which people can begin using right now to make their web browsing more secure and private and which will very soon be available on non-FreedomBox systems. More information on that tool at the end of this post. What have we accomplished? freedomboxfoundation

MediaShift . News Organizations Should Stop Being Neutral on Net Neutrality MediaShift . News Organizations Should Stop Being Neutral on Net Neutrality Many news organizations have a love-hate relationship with the Internet. While the abundance of free, online news has helped wreak havoc on the industry, the Internet itself has created incredible possibilities for news outlets to expand their reach and spark innovation. Thanks to the Internet, audiences can contribute to reporting and news in ways that would have been unimaginable a generation ago. Even the most venerable papers are experimenting with crowdsourced journalism. But that exciting potential would vanish without a free and open Internet — a very real possibility that right now seems lost upon the Fourth Estate, despite its increasing investment in community contributions to news.

Last week the BPI released their overview of 2010 sales volumes in the UK. As always, their press release was filled with claims that piracy is ruining their industry and most mainstream media was quick to republish this propaganda. However, we can use the very same data to show that more music is being sold than ever before, and argue that piracy is likely to have had very little impact.

For years they have fought against this imaginary enemy, and every press release issued is filled with complaints about illegal downloading. More Music Sold Than Ever Before, Despite Piracy More Music Sold Than Ever Before, Despite Piracy
