Nowadays, it barely exists no free, open source and decentralized social network; neither respecting ethic rules or user privacy.

The Movim project (http://www.movim.eu) aims to provide a solution to this problem. During the conference, we will demonstrate we can both marry social network with transparency and respect. Many aspects of the technical architecture will be shown (XMPP, PHP, Apache etc.).
