Hey people of the great Fediverse :) - We are releasing a new project that you might find interesting (we worked a lot on) -

In essence we provide free alternatives to Youtube, Facebook, Google Search and the like. And we release today. We even have a live about it in a few hours -

Here's the list o what we provide:
  • Friendica with open registrations and we plan to keep it open forever
  • Nextcloud with 3GB storage + ability to add external storage; together with Only Office and a few other tools
  • Peertube with unlimited uploads (restricted to 2GB a day so we don't blow up the server) + Live + video conversion + a few plugins
  • SearX that we fine tuned to be as relevant as we could make it
  • Lufi to send files up to 3GB and 7 days storage
  • Etherpad with open access
  • Diagrams
  • RSS Bridge
  • Framadate
  • Libre QR
  • Invidious and Bibliogram
  • Our own Music player/services as a desktop alternative to Spotify
There are no ads, no data collection, no premium accounts. Purely free.

Would be great if you can share it - it is after all for everyone ;)
