About us

The Beanstalks Project ehf. is an independent, employee-owned company. It was registered in Reykjavik, Iceland, in August 2010. What a wonderful day that was!

Our mission is to give you the freedom to publish your content as you see fit, using your own devices and keeping all your data directly under your control. PageKite is how we do that.

We want to empower you to use the World Wide Web for communication on your own terms - publicly or privately, it should be your choice. While your personal data remains on your own devices, no faceless corporation can "steal" it by changing a few words in some obscure Privacy Policy or some default settings in a centralized database.

We don't agree that your Internet Service Provider should have the right to prevent you from running a server. In the name of "security", most people's freedom to express themselves on-line is being artificially restricted by draconian firewalls. PageKite is designed to work around such restrictions.

Finally, we believe people should always have the freedom to inspect and modify the software they rely on. With PageKite, that is guaranteed: PageKite is open source, free software.

Please feel free to get in touch.
