Travels, Hitchhiking, Collaboration, Hospitality, Free Software, Alternatives … What ?
Closer to our way of travelling we believe, use, and contribute to those projects :
- Hitchwiki.org The hitchhiker collaborative bible on internet.
- Nomadwiki.org the tramp’s collaborative “lonely planet”.
- Trustroots.org the hospitality network for hitchhikers.
- Bewelcome.org hospitality network.
The code of those projects is open.
“Free software” indicates software that respect the liberty of users. Roughly, it means that the users have the liberty to execute, copy, distribute, study, modify and improve these software. Thus “Free software” is a reference to the value of liberty, not to the price. To understand this concept better, think of free expression and not free of charges (see).
We both believe in free software. Our blog use the software
For our internet researches, instead of using Google, we ask everything to DuckDuckGo. Although only partially open source, your data is much more protected, and some functions are really well done. The results differ from Google Search because there is no advertisment (or it is optional) and that the research itself is made differently. The Wikipedia page is pretty well done.
