freedom to... 0. use 1. study 2. share 3. change... creative digital works
the purpose of the fig freedom lab is to promote digital freedom, free software and free culture works.
how to build your own freedom lab:

once we have a better understanding of the technology we use, it is up to us to decide how to apply that knowledge. computers are increasingly designed to decide what we are able to do, though we can customise and add features until that feature is removed or discontinued or breaks.
using free software means you have a greater amount of say as to what youre devices can do. instead of having a vendor decide what your choices are-- like a genie granting three wishes but only ones found on a menu, freedom lets you wish for more wishes and even come up with new choices.
