Avatars and freedom of speech at the CeBIT

CeBIT visitors can meet avatars at stand A26 in hall 4. Under the roof of Microsoft, more precisely as one of the companies promoted by the start-up initiative “unternimm was” launched by Microsoft Germany, weblin has the chance to show just where things are going. That is quite ambitious, but weblin has a lot to offer. Making the Internet alive, reclaiming the information highways for the people, that is exactly what we have set out to do. Freedom of speech for everyone, on every website, with no boundaries. “Reclaim the Web” is the objective. Weblin makes the largest virtual world of all, the Internet, come alive. Every person counts. And that is what we want to show the CeBIT visitors. With avatars who can speak freely wherever they may be.

But that is not all. Weblin will be showing selected journalists the prototype of “weblin lite”. weblin lite dispenses with downloading and is not dependent on the operating system. It can therefore also be used with Apple Mac and Linux. weblin lite does not yet have all the features of the Windows client but the core function “reclaim the web” can be experienced by everyone.
The weblin lite version is expected to be accessible to all Internet users by the end of March or beginning of April. Freedom of speech, with no boundaries.
