F2C: Freedom to Connect is a conference devoted to understanding, celebrating and preserving the essential properties of the Internet. [use tag: #F2C15]
The Freedom to Connect stands on three legs.
The first leg is infrastructure, the rights of way, the poles and conduits, the wires and fibers and binder groups and cables, the electromagnetic spectrum, towers, antennas, receivers and transmitters, how it promotes and/or impedes access to the Internet.
The second leg is the fundamental nature of the Internet, namely well-specified, well-understood public protocols, universally implemented with universal connectivity open to all who meet its specifications.
The third is the use of the Internet to promote human values, bottom-up innovation and government of, by and for the people and to counteract anti-innovative vested interests and autocratic government power.
