We work as a collective with an ethical working style, providing internet access, email web hosting, web management, web design training and coaching for our client base. With key notes, workshops, and seminars around “Beyond Leadership” we support individuals, companies and organizations in mastering their challenges and in their transition to a new, successful culture of high-quality connections.
The priority issues are internet rights (the Internet Rights Charter according to APC and the Charter of Human Rights and Principles for the Internet IPC); ICT policies and the information society (WSIS); gender issues and ICTs, through the Women’s Rights Program (WRP); and training.
We have also been involved in a range of connectivity and communication rights projects and are familiar with activities which strive for greater equality through improved access to technologies and information.
We use and recommend Open Source, because Open Source is a development method for software that harnesses the power of distributed peer review and transparency of process. The promise of Open Source is better quality, higher reliability, more flexibility, lower cost, and an end to predatory vendor lock-in.
As an active member of Project Honey Pot, which is a collection of people from around the world, we are working together to track email harvesters and help stop spam.
