Indie Box One is the first ready-to-use personal server appliance for storing your personal data and running indie web applications at home. Made for humans, not just geeks: although everything on the box is free/libre/open-source, you don’t need to be a system administrator and it just works.
What can you do with your Indie Box One?
- Store your family photos, and selectively share them directly with grandma, but not Mark Zuckerberg.
- Bring your calendar home from Google, and sync your smartphones and iPads with your Indie Box One instead, where your schedule is private. No more lying to your calendar is needed.
- Share what’s happening in your life, with text, photos, checkins and more. Because it’s on your own site, you control your story. If you like, you can share to sites like Twitter, Facebook and Foursquare, too, so you can reach your friends wherever they are.
- Run your own VPN, so you can be safe in that coffee shop.
- …and much more.
Indie Box One eliminates the need to entrust our personal data to big internet companies who often share and use it in ways we don’t appreciate. By keeping personal data at home under our own control, Indie Box One lets us cut the cord from the ever-more invasive internet overlords and their monetization schemes and become independent citizens of the internet again.
