mspohr writes: Eben Moglen is in the NYT ( http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/16/nyregion/16about.html) for the FreedomBox Foundation ( http://www.freedomboxfoundation.org/ ) which is an attempt to "Decentralize the Internet so Big Brother Can't Find You".

The FreedomBox is an attempt to improve decentralization by the use of small plug servers running a free software stack.

Looks like an interesting and useful project.
