An MF/PL Palm Card

This wiki page is for shared development of the text on a palm card for May First/People Link. Discussion about the card itself is happening on ticket:610.

First Panel

We have active discussions on the left about building a progressive agenda around any number of issues, including health care, Palestine, racism, and many more. One area that is still underdeveloped is the Internet. What does a progressive Internet agenda look like?

Freedom of Access

That's a term used a lot these days when people talk about the Internet and it means very different things to different people. We believe that Freedom of Access is at the center of progressive Internet agenda. Like everything else about the Internet, this is developing every day in discussions all over the Internet. Below are some ideas about how to frame those discussions.

First Inside Panel


Complete access to your data: to produce it, share it, export and import it, control it and decide what's going to be done with it. Do you currently have this level of control over your Internet data?

Second Panel


Complete access to use, move, change, manipulate and share all programs on the Internet and get assistance in doing any of those things. Would you be able to take your database or web mail program or web site program with you to another provider if you wanted to?

Third Panel


Complete transparency in and available explanations of all processes that dictate and enable our work on the Internet and the right to participate in decisions about those processes. Do you know how any why decisions are made regarding the programs and services you use online?

Fourth Panel


Complete confidence that those we work with to provide our Internet tools and protocols do so because they are part of our movement sharing a commitment to building a radically better world.

Back Panel

May First/People Link is an organization of progressives who use their Internet and who share their resources to . We're one of the world's oldest and largest progressive Internet organizations. As part of our resource sharing, MF/PL members enjoy web hosting, email, mail lists, and dozens of other programs running on free software.

I've attached a couple of mockups of how the card would be laid out including the vertical direction of two of the panels. Alfredo
