For those interested, Calafou's friends launch the second volume of the
'Technological Sovereignty' series. Feel free to viralize it:

Announcing a new publication on technological sovereignty

We deserve to have other technologies, something better than what we
nowadays call "Information and Communication Technologies". This book
delves into the guiding principles of technological sovereignty and
proposes new theoretical and practical descriptions of some initiatives
developing free technologies. It deals with its psychological, social,
political, ecological and economic costs while it relates experiences to
create Technological Sovereignty. The authors bring us closer to other
ways of desiring, designing, producing and maintaining technologies.
Experiences and initiatives to develop freedom, autonomy and social
justice while creating autonomous mobile telephony systems, simultaneous
translation networks, leaks platforms, security tools, sovereign
algorithms, ethical servers and appropriate technologies among others.
The texts are by Alex Hache, Benjamin Cadon, COATI, Carolina, Claudio
Agosti, Elleflâne, Framasoft + AMIPO, Ippolita, Kali Kaneko, Loreto
Bravo, Maxigas and Margarita Padilla.

This second volume expands and completes the first book on the subject
launched in 2014 that spoke about free software, hardware and Internet,
autonomous servers, decentralized social networks, digital public
libraries and cryptocurrencies, but also presented the places where
these projects are launched, the hacklabs, fablabs and biolabs. This
first volume has texts written by Richard Stallman, Patrice Riemens,
Marcell Mars, Ippolita, Julie Gommes, Ursula Gastall, Benjamin Cadon,
Thomas Fourmond, Paula Pin, Jorge Timon, Maxigas, Marta G Franco,
Tatiana de la O, Hellekin et Spideralex.

These two books have been commissioned by Ritimo
(https://www.ritimo.org/) and their coordination and editing have been
developed by Spideralex with the support of Calafou (https://calafou.org/).
