""MediaGoblin is a free software media publishing platform that anyone can install and run. Decentralization, (...) is the main goal of the project, one that is backed and connected to the GNU project.

So far, MediaGoblin has raised only $3,000 of its $60,000 goal, with the campaign set to end April 14th, (...) that is a date that is soon approaching. The first crowd-sourcing initiative was in October of 2012, so this is not the first crowd-funding initiative the project has launched. This second campaign was clearly spurred on by the PRISM revelations of recent past. Having not noticed any failures to meet 2012's funding campaign, it's very possible the team may reach their goal again, given the intensity of the subject matter."

    MediaGoblin solves the problem of being forced to give a free license to Facebook to use your copyrighted works for their own profit. Nobody wants to put their sensitive data on a web server for all to see, so I don't think MediaGoblin intends to help you hide your "plans to rule the world". If you must serve your world domination plans over the internet, just run an OpenVPN server at home, and use a "cloud" server to forward encrypted data to your VPN clients. It works for me, as I finally foiled Papa Smurf and his little blue kittens, MWAHAHAHAAAAA!
