# Possibly less ugly at the end

# What does FreedomBox do?

 >* Boooring server stuff!
  * Exciting new stuff

# Boring example: Accessing MS-mail

# Boring example Accessing internet mail via FreedomBox

![Sketch: [Siri Reiter](http://sirireiter.dk/)](fboxmail.jpg)

# Exciting examples

Examples:

  * "Hello?"
  * "Wauw!"

# Exciting examples

Examples:

  * "Hello?" → like phone, but intelligent
  * "Wauw!" → like twitter, but intelligence is yours

# FreedomBox needs us

# We need hackers

# We need early adopters

# We need promotors

# Let's try coordinate our efforts

# FreedomBox development is exciting

 * frames a common dream among lots of hackers
 * sparks new innovation and renewed commitment

# FreedomBox development is frustrating

 * scratching own itches
 * hacking on top

# Where to best do which types of hacking

# FreedomBox development is promising

# Same vision, but maybe multiple goals

# Even if project fails, efforts live on
