Crowdsourced manifesto regarding digital freedom

Stumbled across this last night, and thought I would forward it on these forums. It's a crowdsourced wiki-type non-profit manifesto launched by F-Secure open from May 6th to June 30th that anybody can take part in. Once it's complete it will be polished and sent to several nations' leaders. Mr. Hyppönen has stated several times that open source is the way of the future and this project here further supports his (and the corporations) statements. Seems like a good start to me.



"We’re fed up with espionage, with having our private information gathered without our consent, with certain parties thinking they have the right to violate anyone’s privacy. They don't. We decided it's time to do something about it.

At re:publica 2014 in Berlin, F-Secure’s Mikko Hyppönen, renowned security and privacy expert, and F-Secure Freedome ambassador David Hasselhoff gave a joint keynote on privacy and digital freedom. With that keynote, they kicked off the writing of the #fsecure #digitalfreedom manifesto, a way for you to make your voice heard on the defining issues of our time: digital freedom and privacy.

From May 6th until June 30th we invite anyone who feels strongly about privacy issues to join in the writing of the #fsecure #digitalfreedom manifesto.This is your chance to make a difference. It's time to reclaim what should have been yours to begin with, but has been lost as the online world has evolved. Contribute your opinions, your ideas, even if it’s just a few sentences. We want to hear what you have to say. And we’ll let the world know.

The #fsecure #digitalfreedom manifesto will be a crowdsourced document licensed under creative commons and will focus on the main themes listed below.

#Theme 1: Mass Surveillance

#Theme 2: Digital Persecution

#Theme 3: Digital Colonization

#Theme 4: Right of Access, Movement and Speech"
