Why Uplink?

Long version

The internet is great. And to stay great, is must be free and accessable for everyone: Consumers and creators alike. Since the early days, we see more and more centralization and walled gardens - more so in the recent past.

At the same time, hosting becomes more and more opinionated and abstract. So I encourage everyone to take a step back and experience the pain, power and possibilities of hosting on your own bare metal machine.

I have created uplink, to enable you to do this right now. No excuses. No messing around with ISPs and router configs. Simple, reliable, "batteries included" private hosting on the open web.
