About LT
English (USA)

The mailing list for the Program on Liberation Technology was originally started at Stanford University by the world's top scholars in the fields of technology, democracy, and human rights to research, design, use, and teach how information and communication technologies could foster positive social change.

The mailing list -- which has broadened its scope to include any technology, not just information and communication technologies -- is no longer affiliated with Stanford University.

Please note the following guidelines:

1. Liberationtech is a public list, so anyone can join and read the archives, forward messages, or mirror the list without our knowledge. The list archives are searchable by search engines such as Google. As such, we urge you to use pseudonyms, fake email addresses, https, and anonymizer software, especially when discussing items of a sensitive nature. Two robust applications are here and here.

2. We urge you to use the list to ask for (or offer) advice, discuss issues, and share information.

3. To maintain civil discourse, we have a zero-tolerance policy for anyone who posts ad hominems, or otherwise inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages. Doing so will get you permanently moderated.

4. We also have zero-tolerance for any posts proposing illegal behavior. Doing so will get you permanently banned.

5. All replies go to the entire list, so please keep "me too" replies to a minimum.

6. We forbid the sending of attachments, as these can be used to spread viruses or spyware. Instead, copy and paste your attachment into the message body, or upload and make it a public doc and share the link. For more info, please see

7. SPAM is not allowed, but you're welcome to announce new liberationtech products and services to the list. Please refrain, however, from doing so more than once per product and service. (In other words, you're welcome to keep us informed about product and service updates.) As noted above, you're also welcome to seek advice or ask for help for your product or service, as often as you'd like.

8. Persistent guidelines violations will get you permanently moderated.

9. If you ever want to unsubscribe or change your options (eg, switch to or from digest mode, change your password, etc.), visit this page.
