Tebibyte Media is composed of two distinct parts: the Network and the Project. The latter is made up of its staff and the infrastructure that supports it. The constituent projects and networks associated with the Project make up our Network. This distinction exists in order to maintain an appropriate separation between the Project's and members' interests and to preserve some of the heterogeneity of these communities.


Emma Tebibyte is the founder of the Project and the benevolent dictator for life of Tebibyte Media. The Network is designed with autonomy in mind so that the Project staff cannot abuse the power given to them.

The other members of staff include silt, mars, sasha, thegoose, Trinity, and vista.


Tebibyte Media's raison d'être is its Network. Our goal as a Project is to foster the growth of that Network by extending connections of solidarity between individuals, projects, and other networks who share the values we believe are important in the digital age.

For more information regarding the specification of the Network as well as the current list of members, the benefits they enjoy, and their responsibilities, see our Network page.


Tebibyte Media was started in 2020 by Emma Tebibyte to create a community of technology-savvy individuals on a Discord “server” who shared faer values. Its original goal was to propagate free software values, which influenced its current purpose.

Today, Tebibyte Media is an aspiring group of free software and open-access enthusiasts who believe that all information should be free and publicly accessible. To that end, we promote, share, connect, and support like-minded developers, artists, writers, and creators whose work progresses toward this goal. Read more at our blog.

WTF is a Tebibyte?

A tebibyte is a unit of digital storage equal to 1099511627776 bytes. The confusion ensuing due to Microsoft Windows' usage of the SI prefixes instead of the proper IEC ones is documented on Wikipedia.
