Dyne:bolic GNU/Linux is a Live CD/DVD distribution based on the Linux kernel. It is shaped by the needs of media activists, artists and creators to be a practical tool focusing on multimedia production and delivering a large assortment of applications. It allows manipulation and broadcast of both sound and video with tools to record, edit, encode, and stream. In addition to multimedia specific programs, dyne:bolic also provides word processors and common desktop computing tools.
ZShaolin is a powerful console terminal full of extra command-line tools, no root required!. It comes with a fully featured and well usable shell (colors, completion etc.), a large software keyboard and several scripting possibilities to edit and convert batches of photos, images, audio and video in different formats, transfer files and admin remote machines.
Freecoin is a set of tools to let people run reward schemes that are transparent and auditable to other organisations. It is made for participatory and democratic organisations who want to incentivise participation, unlike centralised banking databases. Freecoin aims to leverage the use of social digital currencies in a reliable, simple and resilient way.
Freecoin is developed for D-CENT: a Europe-wide project creating privacy-aware tools and applications for direct democracy and economic empowerment. Together with the citizens and developers, we are creating a decentralised social networking platform for large-scale collaboration and decision-making.
We care about: community ownership of social data, security and privacy by design, open standards, mass scalability, open access to knowledge and code.
In the IoT paradigm, having a clear overview of what goes in and out of the network becomes of crucial importance for home users and professionals. The ultimate question of responsibility for whatever happens within a network cannot be easily answered, considering the way things can autonomously decide to initiate communications.
Dowse is a smart digital network appliance for home based local area networks (LAN), but also small and medium business offices, that makes it possible to connect objects and people in a friendly, conscious and responsible manner.
Dyne.org’s contribution to the Free Software community is immense. We appreciate this work from India.Frederick Noronha
We facilitate artists, creatives and engaged citizens in the digital age, sharing tools, practices and narratives for community empowerment.
Our software is not just about market products to satisfy consumer needs: it has implications that can be aesthetic, social, political, technical, spatial, linguistic, economic and numerical.
Since the year 2000 a large amount of people and organizations employed and redistributed our creations: radio makers, film makers, artists, medics, activists and educators.
Our strengths are community, software and documentation.
Worldwide, free of charge, free to copy.
