One of the main activities of KaamosCreations is to provide support for digitising services, with a focus on utilising ethically sound software. We believe that digital tools and especially online services can have great impact on empowering people, on promoting communication and dialogue, boosting business, and on supporting various other activities.
We provide training, lectures or workshops on using Linux, safe use of mobile devices and desktops, secure communication or GDPR compliance for SMEs or NGOs. And we provide support for as well as ready solutions for online services for small businesses, science projects, artists, or activists etc., such as tools for project collaboration, web hosting or building websites and online shops.
We believe that digital services should be empowering, transparent and easily accessible, as well as free of hidden costs for providers and users (including data scraping); Digital services should not hide their mode of operation behind unknown algorithms, and they should not violate people's basic rights. We therefore avoid proprietary and closed source software but instead resort to free and open source software (FOSS) (reading suggestion: FOSS as a contribution to digital security in the Arctic).
