Fight for the Future organizes people to fight for their rights and interests, because technology is too central to our basic freedom for its rules to be written by lobbyists and monopolies.
Fight for the Future is dedicated to protecting and expanding the Internet's transformative power in our lives by creating civic campaigns that are engaging for millions of people. Alongside internet users everywhere we beat back attempts to limit our basic rights and freedoms, and empower people to demand technology (and policy) that serves their interests.
It's usually pretty clear where the public's interest lies. Our goal is to make this even clearer--so clear that nobody can subvert it.
FFTF is a new organization, its team hailing from the Participatory Culture Foundation, the Participatory Politics Foundation, the Free Software Foundation, A New Way Forward, and Downhill Battle.
It's usually pretty clear where peoples’ interests lie in tech. People love huge open libraries of music, books and video. They don't like censorship and legal landmines that get you sued for making amazing things. They’re happy to pay for good stuff, but hate being coerced to pay for mediocrity.
And people are right to want all these things, even though governments and businesses with their own interests try to paint this new cultural freedom as dangerous, or destructive. Our goal is to make the public’s interest vividly clear, so clear that not even the most powerful lobbyists and smartest monopolies can subvert it*.
To do it, we need your help. If you have ideas, tell us. If you care about this stuff too, follow us in whatever way’s best for you (email's best for us). We’ll be gentle on your inboxes, and we’ll try our best to only send things that are awesome. When we do, share it, hard. Popularity and passion make good ideas dangerous.
