In just over 62 hours, an entity called the Network Liberation Movement that aims at fostering the belief that freedom is the best new practice in networking will be officially launched.
The site, which can be found at Networkliberationmovement.com, is the second such initiative that aims at breaking up proprietary, walled environments on the internet.
Back in September 2009, Google launched a similar project called the Data Liberation front or DLF which aims at evangelising the notion of data portability, a particularly acute problem online.
There are three main tenets in the NLM credo. They believe in freedom from high networking costs, vendor lock-in and network complexity. They argue that proprietary systems only "help those who sell them" and have already managed to get some traction on various social networking websites (Twitter and Facebook mainly).
The team without the website promises a "vital announcement" that will "provide with a complete picture of how to liberate your network through lower costs, open network standards and integrated capabilities. Stay tuned as we bring you more about the Network Liberation Movement.
