Liebe freunde,

ich denke, ihr versteht auch deutsch und deshalb schreibe ich auch in 

Meinen vorschlag fuer das InterNet, die Verbindung lokaler Netzwerke, 
"the Inter-connection of local Net-works", habe ich auch den leuten des 
EU Surfey programms "The Next Generation Internet" zugeleitet. Klar, mit 
so einem vorschlag sind diese leute, die nur in privaten/staatlichen 
strukturen zu hause sind und die telekommunikation als kapitalisierbares 
objekt behandeln, voellig ueberfordert.

Wir sollten immer auf eines zurueck gehen. Das Internet ist nur ein 
transportsystem fuer digitale daten in paketform. Alles andere spielt 
sich auf dem anwendungslevel, dem "application level", ab. Und zum 
transportsystem gehoert das routen, also die navigation, und die 
fehlerpruefung. Wir wollen ja, dass die pakete am ziel so ankommen, wie 
wir sie abgesendet haben.

Ich kann gerne euch meinen vorschlag, der ja in der FreiFunk umgebung 
und in manchen FSF listen bekannt ist, weiter geben. Ob ich in Berlin 
sein kann, ist noch offen.

Mein grundsaetzlicher ansatz ist, dass die menschen in ihren lokalen 
lebensgemeinschaften, den gemeinden, von klein bis gross, die 
telekommunikation selbst organisieren. Damit fallen von vorne herein 
private und staatliche instanzen heraus. Und nur so ist auch die 
telekommunikation aus dem geldsystem heraus nehmbar, was aber zwingend 
notwendig ist.

mit lieben gruessen, willi

To whom it may concern beyond just being affected...

the Internet is so broken, even the European Parliament passes
resolutions against it[0] while the European Commission fosters
the exploration of better solutions[1]. Some of us have been
working on a new Internet all along and continue to do so.

We would like to invite you after 34C3, to Berlin, to discuss
and hack Next Generation Internet technologies. The kind that
actually replace parts of the existing Internet, not just adds
complexity to it.

     Start: Friday, 5th of January, 2018
       End: Sunday, 7th of January, 2018
  Location: Onionspace, Gottschedstraße 4, Aufgang 4, 13347 Berlin

We're roughly a dozen coders, working on one such solution.
With a social interaction layer on top of GNUnet[2] -
called secushare[3] - we want to continue our efforts on
developing a basic communication technology for a better
democratic society in which people be free to communicate,
share information, participate in social discourse, and be
empowered to establish structures through digital means
to organize themselves and renew the idea of democracy.
A truly social network, resistant against manipulation
by DarkAds[4] and political dashboard optimization (see
Facebook's Malvinas affair[5]) is becoming a precondition
for reasonable election results.

Some updates on what we have been doing lately:

   * Debugging of GNUnet sevices, e.g. multicast, psyc, social (all)
   * UI design for secushare (all)
   * Improved documentation (Drupal to Tex to Texinfo conversion and 
cleanup, etc) (WIP by ng0)
   * Improving the documentation (this involved Drupal to Tex to Texinfo 
conversion and applying fixes and changes to it) (by ng0)
   * Rust bindings for GNUnet (WIP by lurchi, t3sserakt)   * Refactoring 
the GNUnet scheduler for use with epoll / foreign language bindings (WIP 
by lurchi, t3sserakt)
   * Continuous integration and deployment infrastructure, with E2E 
tests (WIP by dvn)
   * Guix packaging (WIP by ng0)
   * GNUnet integration into GuixSD (WIP by ng0)
   * A new GNUnet website (coming up, moving away from Drupal)
  At our New Year meeting, we'd like to talk about some
social, technical and infrastructural topics:     * Where we are with 
secushare, and what's next
   * Our role in the European Commission's Next Generation Internet
   * The use of a deteministic debugger to get the annoying bugs removed.[7]
   * Better guidance for interested people to join the GNUnet community.
   * AGPL Licensing - Will it save us?
   * CI/CD for GNUnet, and adjacent projects
   * Fixing gnunet-fs
   * infotropique[8] OS - a GuixSD based OS interwoven[9] with GNUnet

Again, we welcome you to Berlin. If you need a place to stay
just get in touch, we will find something cheap and hospitable.
For those already around on New Year's Eve, we want to party away the 
bad vibes of 2017, embrace the shapes of things to come with good music, 
drinks, food, and nice people. So if you are interested, you can already 
join us earlier, or meet us in smaller groups during the whole week.

'Til then, Happy hacking!

los secushare peoples.
