FEcoWebS = Free Eco Web Services
This was started as an environmentalist project in the beginning of 2012 CE, its short name is FEcoWebS (from the abbreviation of Free Eco Web Services). Primarily, the free service of ourproject.org gives place to it, but it can be installed to other places too. The main output of the project was a homepage, but the title on the top of the homepage was eventually renamed, to better reflect its content - thus its title became "Free Eco Wisdom".
Through many changes, the features of the project formed gradually, together with its goals and strategy. Currently, the main goal of the project is to provide a small-sized, portable, error-free, free, public domain and durable knowledge-base that can be shown easily to people who meet with environmentalist heroes roaming in the world. This is a quick reference to a distillation of philosophy that is having great potential in making the future better. Ideally, this would increase the number of environmentally friendly people and make them wiser. These people should form environmentally conscious local clubs.
Volunteers or activists could help in this project, e.g. proofread the writings, translate them to other languages, make audiobooks out of them, do social media campaign, join to the FEcoWebS mailing lists, or disseminate our ideas in local clubs. They could even give new ideas, elaborate old ideas, or even implement some of them, but these would go into separate files, and uploaded only if proven original, and approved by me, Arpad Fekete. Whoever is interested in this, can join to one of the mailing lists of FEcoWebS, what can be accessed online from starting at the ourproject.org website and searching for FEcoWebS there.

Implementing ideas in projects or web services
Project 1: Against the wastage of paper-based advertising
This project is run from 2009 to 2013 (not always here), but it is paused due to the lack of much free time.
Project 2: Popularizing and financing FEcoWebS
A little SEO, a little activity on Google+, and other things, and a little more people reads this homepage online. By the way, for great popularity it is probably needed for (at least one of) the creator(s) of the homepage (Arpad Fekete) to be famous. The poor can rise by fame. Some popularity might also be acquired by using right illustrations for this project.
Project 3: Resource-sparing, fashionable fonts
I've taken the public domain "Tuffy" font, and modified it with FontForge so that most of its glyphs will use less ink (except capital letters), and look so strange that it is a question whether they are still latin letters or not. I have created a prototype version for demonstration purposes, and put it into the SVN repository of the FEcoWebS project (at ourproject.org). It would be much harder to create a production version: I can only create fonts by modifying existing fonts, and unfortunately, the public domain fonts are not the same as those using minimal ink.
Service 1: Links to websites, books and competitions about environmentalism
Instead of links, I (Arpad Fekete) share search keywords, but only in English still.
Service 2: Mailing lists about the areas bordering environmentalism
These are accessible through ourproject.org's FEcoWebS project page, and you can get to contact with me (Arpad Fekete) there as well. (So you should search for FEcoWebS at that place, or browse among the projects.)
Service 3: A one-page document about the essence (with sparing fonts)
This is only planned yet.
Service 4: A collection of public domain documents on CD
Still planned, waiting until the FEcoWebS audiobook is ready (to be put on the same CD). The audiobook should ideally be made at LibriVox, but this is also waiting until more support for this project.
Apart from these, there will probably not be any more service or project here until I (Arpad Fekete) get rich, unless there will be people who join to this project.
During the Free Eco Web Services (FEcoWebS) project my (Arpad Fekete's) language, writing, web development, SEO, social and project management skills have improved, and this project can help in getting fame, reference, good karma, connections and new opportunities too. That's why it had probably worth the effort.
