Hello free phone lovers,

As we all know, the baseband/modem/radio processor is the big bone in
our collective throat: it is the most closed and proprietary part of
every currently available phone, no matter how free the rest of the
phone might be.

Well, without beating further around the bush, I just started a
crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo seeking to change this bleak
baseband situation:

My project seeks to solve the problem of the closed and proprietary
baseband by producing a GSM modem module that will run 100% free
firmware.  And furthermore, I seek to produce such a free baseband not
by creating it from scratch, but by re-creating one that was already
made by someone else some years ago and later discontinued.  Please
read the campaign page for the full details.

Thanks for reading,
