FreedomBone: How to turn your BeagleBone Black into a personal communications server
http://adafru.it/b101170

Bob Mottram made this great tutorial on how to turn your BeagleBone Black into a FreedomBox-like personal communications server.

If you look at it from an engineering perspective, an iterative perspective, it’s clear that you have to try something rather than do nothing.

– Edward J. Snowden

Today many of us rely upon “free” services in the cloud, such as Gmail, Facebook, Google+ and so on. It might appear that these services are indispensible infrastructure of the modern internet, but actually they’re not strictly needed and the amount of value which they deliver to the average internet user is very marginal. It is possible to be a citizen of the internet and yet not use those things – to disintermediate the most well known companies and cut out their prurient or merely cringeworthy business models.

FreedomBone is a personal home communications server based upon the BeagleBone Black hardware. It’s small and cheap and will allow you to use email, have your own web site and do social networking in a federated way without needing to rely upon any intermediary companies other than your ISP.

You should consider doing this if you are a freedom-oriented sort of person and you want to maintain sovereignty over your information. Laws in many places in the world consider you to have relinquished any property rights over data which you put onto a server not owned by youself (i.e. owned by a third party, such as Google or Facebook).

If you don’t like the idea of having all your communications intercepted and investigated by the Surveillance State then you should consider running a FreedomBone. If your profession involves maintaining confidentiality as an essential feature, such as legal or medical services, counselling, teaching or any sort of activism then you should consider running a FreedomBone.

So +Josh Reynolds  and Myself got to take a trip over to one of our more remote repeater sites to do some work. When we showed up at the air strip to take our plane over we were informed that it was running late so instead we were to take a helicopter over.... SCORE! Here are the photos from our day.

Interesting and pushing the boundaries.
 
The next great thing is here!

Because good things take time to build I now present you all the application/service from the company that I've been helping been working on the last months, tirelessly.

It's called FacesIn, it's a geolocation service that works together with the most popular social networks (Google+ will be added soon, the APIs are lacking but we may have found a way to add it to our service) to help you get together with friends that are nearby you. The application description speaks for itself so without further ado here's the link:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.wizi.facesin

We're confident enough that the application is in a very good state to be shared publicly. Be advised that its still in development and we work daily to improve it!! The main developer is +Christian Göllner so you know it's top notch work with my maximum level of confidence!

Our goal is to reach 1000 users by the end of April so we count on YOU to help us spread this FREE application to all your friends and family.
We'll soon be running special contests and giveaways because we love our users, so stay tuned!

We welcome all kinds of feedback and feature suggestion so I also ask you to join our community and help us build a great social experience.

HTML5 Clone of Apple's AirDrop

ShareDrop allows you to transfer files directly between devices, without having to upload them to any server first. It uses WebRTC for secure peer-to-peer file transfer and Firebase for presence management and WebRTC signaling.

At the moment ShareDrop allows you to send files only to other devices in the same local network, i.e. devices with the same public IP address.

The main difference between ShareDrop and AirDrop is that ShareDrop requires internet connection to find devices, while AirDrop doesn't need one - it creates ad-hoc wireless network between them. On the other hand, ShareDrop allows you to send files between mobile (Android) and desktop devices.
