Remember, remember, the fifth of November
Dear friends, users and collaborators of Xicnet.com,
we want to invite you to celebrate with us next 5th of November, 2021 the XX anniversary of Xicnet.com ( $ whois xicnet.com -> Creation Date: 2001-11-05T02:24:49Z ). We are celebrating 20 years offering web space, email, streaming services and development of numerous Internet sites and applications .
We have seen the Internet develop since the early 90’s, and we contribute to its construction with passion, because we know the potential it has.
Since our landing in Barcelona in 2002, we started to support and collaborate with several organizations and people with the vision of a better world.
We are aware of the dangers posed by Big Tech, so we propose less Big Tech and more “Small Tech”. We know we have the experience, the capacity and the level of engineering and creativity needed to compete and surpass the big players but with ethics and sustainability, and we want to use our super powers to help all kinds of people and organizations that also rely on the common good for their actions.
Since late 2020 we started collaborating with Infinity.Labs.ooo, a growing tech collective, in its infinite journey towards a sustainable FLOSS ecosystem. Together we will continue to develop more and better quality services for our users, sharing free software, tools and knowledge with humanity.
This coming 5th of Novbember 5, 2021 we will celebrate and continue together this battle to preserve our cyberspace as a space of freedom, for personal and collective construction and development.
How are we going to celebrate?
We discovered that in the last two decades, what has united us the most to several people and projects around Xicnet.com has been streaming. Some of our closest people know very well that have operated and collaborated in the development of state-of-the-art streaming with Free Software: Icecast2, OGG/Vorbis, OGG/Theora, ffmpeg2theora, oggfwd, Pure Data. We have used streaming based on free tools for several political, artistic, activist and hacker projects.
So, the next 5th of November 2021 from 12.00 UTC let’s meet at https://party.xicnet.com/ to:
- Share streams and experiment with the limits of technology.
- Tell each other how each of us uses streaming today, how is our setup, what tools we use, what for.
- Share the projects we are currently doing and maybe the ones we would like to do or whatever we would like to share.
If you support this initiative and the project, we propose any or all of the following alternatives to participate:
- The easiest way would be to place our logo and a mention of Xicnet.com on your website
and on your social networks. Correction: we recommend everyone to stop using the big corporate social networks.
- Those who wish can send us videos, images, messages or whatever inspires them.
- You can recommend us to your friends #WithALittleHelpFromMyFriends.
- Connect to our chat and streaming on the D day.
See you on Friday, November 5 from 12.00 UTC at https://party.xicnet.com/ 🙂
With love, your Xicnet.com team.
Cheers and privacy!
