    4343Significant achievements include surviving and growing as an alternative Internet organization with decided left-wing politics and done so without any foundation money or grants of any kind and developing within our membership a group of technologists whose interaction with the rest of our members is based on a respectful, collaborative culture.

    45 ''Activism:'' MF/PL works in coalitions of all kinds, participates in events, and works on campaigns of all types. Most prominent among these is our leading work at the US Social Forum of 2007 during which we organized and led the technology work group that provided for all technology (on and off line) at the event. There were 37 technologists working in the group from all parts of this country. We've sponsored and/organized dozens of events over the last three years and are represented at public events in the United States virtually every month.

    4747Our activism program is design to develop consciousness within the left about the political struggles related to the Internet (around free software, web of trust vs. hierarchical security models, data retention and privacy issues, etc.) Our goal is for activists to think through the decisions they make around their use of the Internet as carefully as they think through their work in other areas, with care made to ensure that their activities are consistent with their mission, goals, and values. Over the last two years, we successfully placed free software as a vital issue during the technology development of the US Social Forum, we've developed an innovative workshop on Internet Rights that demonstrates the democratic potential of the Internet while raising consciousness about the politic issues facing the Internet.
