Spread the word!: Please support Vikings to spread the word about the first a libre-friendly data center and a hosting service that don't spy on you. Use social media to share the project URL, talk about it with your friends, blog about it and more.

Ideas?: Can you think of an awesome service that isn't covered by the campaign (VPS, VPN, email, dedicated server, colocation) and should be added once funded? Please tell us!

1) That Talos project did not reach its funding target, and has extended its time for fund raising by one month. What hardware would be used, if Talos is unavailable? 2) At some point, please blog some details about the relative merits of your main candidates for a jurisdiction in which to situate your data centre. For example, some people might think Iceland would have been a better choice, but you chose Germany. Why? 3) I think it would also be worth discussing why people might want to use a data centre, rather than attempting to host the services themselves. Good luck with the VIKINGS project!
