Even if you just stumbled accross luckycloud, you are likely to belong to a growing group of users who are noticing that awareness of your actions, especially online, is of growing importance. At least since Edward Snowden brough it to the attention of the masses: the digital world, once a synonym for free thinking and international community, has now been ruined. What remains is a network of international surveillance and continuous attempts at thought control and
unwanted external influence. Connecting with others and sharing ideas with others without unwanted and unnecessary influence was a concept, which Luc Mader, the founder of luckycloud, started persuing in 2007 at the University of Applied Sciences (HTW) in Berlin. He brought an online platform to life, where students could access and share an archive of student material, which quickly became a popular part of every day life at the university.
The university began to support the platform and many students got involved in trying to establish a platform for sharing material reaching accross faculties and universities. After a year of intensive development, luckycloud was created. From a simple "big server", this project will hopefully become a great platform for sharing and spreading information. luckycloud enables its users to share thoughts and ideas without unwanted eyes peering into their business, including even the luckycloud developers.
luckycloud is the result of people working together against the age of surveillance, despite knowing that luckycloud can only be a tiny contribution towards a free and safe internet. We do everything we can to use only transparent software (open source) and strong cryptography to contribute to creating a surveillance free internet, which you can trust.
