Today’s mighty kings are the centralised core and cloud service providers, to whom we surrender ever more personal data. This talk suggests that comfortable interaction between devices does not require them to become dumb, remote-controlled terminals to all-powerful providers, while at the same time reducing the carbon footprint of the Internet. They address three things, namely the liberty of not having to disclose every movement to your network provider; equality for your traffic to be treated network neutral; and the comfort of not having to disclose your fraternity friends. Used together or separately, these building blocks provide for more inherent privacy and will reduce dependence on remote services, thus also enabling their use in disaster recovery.
