I quickly wanted to address something I did some research on around the "Pulse" program connected to the "Stratosphere" project. I was a little bothered by everything I found about them. While I very much hope it succeeds (pro-privacy, anti-Google/Facebook), they have a big fundraiser happening on their site
that I definitely wouldn't donate to.
In addition to not being able to find much in the way of information, articles, press, or any clear efforts to explain what they're actually doing, the goals are extremely lofty (for starters a privacy-friendly, peer-to-peer cell phone). Meanwhile there are projects that are really working right now actively making cool stuff like Syncthing or any number of great, active projects.
