Welcome to Techrights

Founded in 2006, this Web site represents more than just a message; it serves a community and a growing movement. Having attracted over a billion hits, Techrights is now an internationally-recognised platform for advocacy of digital rights and personal privileges. Activism here is both positive and negative, as Techrights often criticises companies and organisations that harm society. The site was best known for Boycott Novell until 2010. The goal here is to maximise freedom, reduce surveillance, and generally promote the sharing of knowledge, which in turn requires transparent systems, lenient licensing terms, no censorship, and active collaboration among parties.

Wiki

The Wiki in this Web site helps organise past material, including key articles. The Wiki started in 2009 when ~10,000 articles required better organisation. Historically, before spammers attempted to pollute the Wiki (spam injections several times per hour), the Wiki was routinely edited by everyone, not just core members of Techrights.

The Wiki provides introductory translations into almost a dozen languages and it contains multi-lingual portals.

The Wiki was demoted somewhat during the Techrights refactoring/overhaul of 2013. It was not superseded, just relegated.
