Hello !

Hello to the mailing list of re-decentralize.

I am currently writing a white paper for the french government about
decentralization.
They requested the advice of the "National Commission for the Digital
Society" about the neutrality of "platforms" (=Google, Facebook, Apple ...).
So I am preparing arguments explaining that "personal cloud" is a good way
to influence the "neutrality of platforms" :-)

The text will be in french, but if anyone is interested to help, I would be
happy to share the document in english in order to have as many
contributions as possible.

ping me if interested !

Best.

the box now.

Hello Francis,

We released our first release of the platform - the "snowden release" :-)
But not for the apps yet which are still in beta...
But we will have an official release in January !

At the moment we are in the middle of our fund raising, so an interview
would be really great.
Especially because in our slide deck I explain to investors that there is a
huge trend around decentralization, and I give the reference of
redecentralize.org : it would be nice for us to be present on your site :-)

It will be a good opportunity to explain our business models and present
our clients and perspectives. I am sure the community will be able to
provide good feedbacks, so I definitely think it is very valuable for us !
And we need to find 3 or 4 new people to join us, so this also could help
to find talents to join us.

cheers !

Hi Benjamin,

That’s sounds great.  I’d love to contribute (in French or English) if I 
can, and I’m sure there will be plenty of discussion around some of the 
points you address - although primarily I suspect in English.

So please, do keep post the specific topics you’re covering to the list 
and I’m sure they’ll spark some debate.

ok nice !
In fact I am contributing to two french projects.

*1/ The white paper about platforms neutrality that I already introduced.*
This white paper is requested by the government to a commission of "digital
wise guys" - the "CNNum" -, which is composed of about 20 persons, such as
Tristan Nitot from Mozilla for instance.
I am not one of them but I know some of them. So I want to convince them to
include the personal cloud as a way to contribute to the neutrality of the
platforms.
For that, my contacts wihin the CNNum want me to write a paper so that I
could present it to the commission.
=> I started this work yesterday, so it is at a very early stage but if you
agree that I post this work on the mailing list, I will do it in order to
augment my work with open contributions !
At the end I will translate the document into french, but only at the end.

*2/ Propositions for the french cloud industry.*
Cozy is a member of a commission led by OVH and ATOS in charge by the
government to build a list of propositions to encourage the development of
the french cloud industry.
There are only 13 companies, so Cozy is quite proud to be one of them !
(Orange, Atos, OVH, CEGID, BULL ...)
And better, OVH is convinced that "personal cloud" is a future mainstream
trend, so they help us to add some strong propositions for the development
of personal clouds...
This second document is more mature, I will translate it when I find time,
I am sure some of you could also have some good ideas !

As I am very busy, I am not sure when I will be able to present you these
documents, but definitely I hope that it will be in the coming weeks.
