Thanks to everyone who helped and supported us to make this happen.
Friendly reminder: "X as a service" is just a misleading corporate euphemism for "pay forever for not owning it".
"Software as a service" actually means "pay forever for not owning the software".
"Games as a service" actually means "pay forever for not owning games".
"Infrastructure as a service" actually means "pay forever for not owning the hardware".
And so on.

MOBILIZON (beta) IS OUT! Free, open source, decentralized, (soon) federated, privacy by design software to allow us to organize freely. So proud to be part of it!
Giving users the power to moderate their own feeds is the key. Centralized moderation will always be flawed--a company can never represent your sensitivities as well as you and your peers (and will likely bow to outside pressure to censor, whether it's China or groups of users).
