Who we and what we want
without creating power
To start with, we want everything.
Our objective is to liberate spaces on the web where we can discuss and work on two levels: on the one hand, the right to and need for free communication privacy, anonimity and access to telematic resources; on the other, projects linked to social reality.
The realization of an independent server seems to us to be a good point of departure to reach our goals.
We believe that communication must be free - and free - and, therefore, universally accessible.
We are working a it, by offering web space, email, mailing lists and chat to individuals and projects in line with those needs, outside the commercial logic of offering services and spaces for payment, welcoming all those who reject the globalizing cultural and media censorship that is ci viene preconfezionato e venduto.
The space and services on this server are not intended for commercial activities (directly or indirectly) or for use by organized religion or political parties; or, in short, by anyone who already has the means of disseminating their ideas, or who use the concept of delegation (explicitly or implicitly) to manage their relationships and projects.
The right to and need for privacy and anonimity must be respected.
We guarantee that we keep no weblogs, that we do not ask for personal information in exchange for services, and that we will do everything to maintain our anonymous remailer, anonymizer and everything else that ensures the privacy and confidentiality of your comunications.
Knowledge and resources grow through sharing. That is why we encourage the systematic, organized and completely free diffusion of cultural material, self-productions and documentation, and why we fight against traditional copyright and support the adoption free and open-source software.
Inventati seeks to reproduce digitally issues that are part of reality: through websites, or by creating forums for discussion which are not limited by physical space (e.g. through creation of mailing lists).
Autistici, instead, has a technical basis and arises from a passion for understanding the tools used for exposing the politics implicit in telematics; these tools are created in the digital world, but that doesn't mean they don't have a political impact.
We start with the tools, but use them to very precise political ends, in both the digital world and the real world. The rights listed above are one example of the political issues that interest the internet.
We believe that means of communication should not be the exclusivce domain of information professionals. We believe in the value of self-maagement: this is why we have no sponsors or funding of any other type, apart from voluntary subscriptions by those who believe that this project is important. None of us earns a cent from this project (in fact, the opposite...).
The technical and political aspects of the use of our server are decided together, with the maximum trasparency possible, through mailing list dicussions. We have no coordinator, and no spokesperson, and decisions are not reached by voting.
