A temporary website
Posted September 3rd, 2011 - 1:22 pm by from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (Permalink)
Hello everybody. I'm totally in favor to have a decentralized Website/ Network/Data Bank. I'm a computer addict (Linux User) and a member of the Free Software movement in Brazil. But I'm not an expert in Network and Webdesign. As a programmer I only know the basics of HTML. Why I am talking about this? Because I think that to develop a decentralized network, we need more time than we have to maintain together all the people anti CS-Corporation. Do you agree with me? If I'm right, while the decentralized network is being developed, we need a traditional website, like the current CS. I registered 3 domains: http://www.freecouchsurfing.org/ www.freecouchsurfing.com/www.feecouchsurfing.net. I contracted the Webhosting and now we need to develop the website. There is already some people thinking about this, but we need more collaborators, mainly people who knows PHP and how to create MySQL data bank.

If Casey and Partners Corporation make anything against our domains, because of the word "couchsurfing" in it, they will have more people against the CS Corporation. They will show for all members their aim to monopolize our community.

By the way, who has contact with the Free Software Foundation? I think they can give support to our cause. I am quite sure that we can get the Richard Stallman's support.
