Who we are
A/I was born more than 10 years ago when individuals and collectives dealing in technology, privacy, cyber rights and political activism met in Italy. Our fundamental aim is to provide free communication tools on a wide basis, while pushing people to choose free rather than commercial communication modes. We would like to arouse people's awareness about the need to protect their privacy and to escape the looting which is indiscriminately perpetrated by governments and corporations alike on both data and personalities.
We try to accomplish all this by offering internet services (web sites, e-mail, mailing lists, chat, instant messaging, anonymous remailing, blogs, newsletters, and more) both to individuals and collective projects who agree to our same aims and sharing our ideals, and use our best skills and knowledge to defend our users' privacy.
Standing outside the commercial attitude of paid services and web spaces, we happily welcome those unresting towards cultural and media censorship, towards the globalized imaginery that is prepared, packed and sold to us day after day.
