Звернення до ІТ-спільноти Кремнієвої Долини від ІТ-намету на Євромайдані

Dear friends, we publish an appeal to IT colleagues from Silicon Valley.

We are writing to you to maximize repost and spread the appeal if you have contacts in companies of Silicon Valley:
Dear friends and colleagues of the IT society!
IT specialists are the people of the world. We are working in the information space which has no boundaries. We are the first to accept and take new technology and the best global designs. This is the reason why our community is that much democratic and largely integrated into the world community. Therefore, we are for the integration into Europe.
IT specialists are a professional and apolitical community. However, we are interested in human rights and freedoms, such as freedom of passing the frontier and freedom of word. Therefore, we think it is our duty to help the community with skills and knowledge. That is the reason why we have decided to establish an IT-tent on Euromaidan.
IT-tent is a place where every person, being on Maidan Nezalezhnosti in Kyiv at the moment, has a possibility to enter the Internet, get any support from the IT specialist, tune or charge mobile devices. Thus, we are making IT technology closer to the society. The tent has become a place of professional support without any slogans, with no ideology or political attributes. 
This project was implemented within 24 hours – we have independently gathered without some orders or support of professional unions, have found money, equipment, have printed out leaflets, and connected to the Internet. We, the IT guys, can do everything really fast. 
IT-tent is one of the fastest socials start-ups in the world. 
The tent will be present as long as the Euromaidan. Nowadays we have new projects, ideas and start-ups being born during our communication. We keep on thinking how IT specialists can help the society or start working at a really new system of taking state resolutions. That means that resolution, for example, with regard to distribution of a state budget will be taken by personal ‘likes’ of every citizen, but not one person in the financial department. Use of new technologies in taking important for the society resolutions will let these decisions be transparent. 

We, being IT specialists, have to take active part in the processes of country modernization. 
Therefore, we ask you, colleagues, to support our initiative of the IT-tent with ideas, projects, thoughts – we will be grateful for any support. 
We are ready to change the world and improve the life of people thanks to information technologies. 

Senior IT-tent 
coordinator Maksym Plakhtiy
