Selected projects

dyne:bolic

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

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

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.

D-CENT-smallFreecoin 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.

 

dowse

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.

 

ENTROPICAL.org is an art research project established in 2015 to contrast abstract value creation with new paradigms in distributed energy usage and value re-cycling. We present our concepts using an evocative visual language through series of screenprints, graphics and installations.

NEXT: Installation opening! REALBOTANIK on Sunday 13 December in Amsterdam, 2pm-4pm in Glazen Huis pavillion, Amstel Park, Zone2Source.

Bytes for All

Dyne:bolic is one of the ever increasing list of GNU/Linux distributions we recommend because of their strong commitment to user freedom.

GNU project

Free Software Foundation

The Tomb project is actually really cool. They have done a lot of work to make the power of cryptsetup accessible to mere mortals.

About Dyne.org

Dyne.org Think &Do Tank

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.
