GNU consensus Stakeholders

GNU consensus is an umbrella project to facilitate coordination of free software social networking projects to encourage freedom, privacy, public space, and decentralization.

End Users

We work for end users, for their freedom, for our freedom. We are, like you, end users.

If the GNU consensus Manifesto sparks some interest in you, please tell us! You may write about it, talk to your friends, and contribute to the mailing list, or give us kudos on IRC. Your participation, and your constructive criticism are welcome: help us help you.
