How did you discover FreedomBox?

I discovered Freedombox by quite an accident. I was browsing the DebConf Videos YouTube channel in the middle of the night, and I cam across a presentation by Bdale Garbee titled ‘FreedomBox Update’.
I’m curious about how others here first bumped into the project.

Freedombox was mentioned in a podcast I listen to (“gadget of the week”). I thought it sounded really cool, and a great way to learn more about networking and self-hosted solutions. Honestly, it is way more polished and easy to use than I was expecting!

I was poking around in Google’s search engine looking for what to do with my RBPi 2. I just started a syncthing share at that time. I though this would be a cool thing to do 3 years prior.

From Professor Moglen, from his interview. That was a long time ago, it was just an idea then, the freedombox itself didn’t exist yet.
