On Libervis.com we explore the good uses of technology, those that put technology in the service of individual liberty, personal empowerment, betterment of society as a whole, and building a better future. We provide key resources that can help you use technology to advance these purposes, and we discuss the implications that technological trends, meshing with social trends, have for these values.
This is not an FSF publication and even if it were associated with FSF in some official way, it wouldn't be an FSF propaganda site, contrary to what some might be thinking.

This collection of articles is not a collection of HOWTOs, it is a collection of inspiring examples supporting a message: The tools, both technological and social, to create a better, greener, healthier, sustainable, more human-friendly future are available, and using them won't make us uncomfortable. We can ignore the tools, and let our planet go down the drain, or we can decide to use them.
