We’ve had enough of digital monopolies and surveillance capitalism. We want an alternative world that works for everyone, just like the original intention of the web and net.
We seek a world of open platforms and protocols with real choices of applications and services for people. We care about privacy, transparency and autonomy. Our tools and organisations should fundamentally be accountable and resilient.

At last year's Europython Holger Krekel (cc'd) gave a keynote titled "The return of peer-to-peer computing" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCgl0xXFVOg) which is well worth a watch. Buddies at the conference tweeted at me during his talk telling me I should "get in touch with this guy" (knowing my interest in P2P). We exchanged emails and a group of us met for a P2P sprint in November 2013 working in small groups on various different bits of technology in both a practical "hacking" sense (i.e. we wrote code) and in a broader philosophical / architectural sense (i.e. we debated, discussed and brainstormed). It was a lot of fun. At the end of the week we did a sort of show of what we'd all been collaborating on. Holger, Fabian and I presented what you can find at http://p4p2p.net/ - we basically imagined what would be required in a framework for writing P2P applications: as Ruby on Rails or Django are for web applications, we asked ourselves what would be the equivalent for P2P..? In the end we looked at re-purposing some of the DHT work I'd been doing on the drogulus and Holger's execnet project (http://codespeak.net/execnet/). Since then, I've been lobotomozing the drogulus in order to extract the DHT parts that could be re-used in p4p2p.net. Andi, Tom, Florian and Yiorgis looked at / discussed / presented / hacked upon / broke / mended WebRTC, Tahoe, Crypho and techniques for punching holes in firewalls / NAT. We intend to do the same sort of thing again in Freiburg, perhaps here: http://www.fewo-direkt.de/ferienwohnung-ferienhaus/p507456 (Sleeps 4-10 people and there's further accommodation and plenty of Alphorns close by - check out the photos.) The provisional dates are Sunday, March 16th -> Friday, 21st. If you're interested in attending drop me and/or Holger (cc'd) a line. Hope this makes things clearer and I'm more than happy to answer any questions you may have, Nicholas. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.12 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Icedove - http://www.enigmail.net/ iQEcBAEBAgAGBQJSzS1FAAoJEP0qBPaYQbb6ZCMH/1kr0bLh7mG8KMGxgxQu5FIv 1hVfc6qexgPIDsUcDyJ9RtTLLn6X5HRwZ97vYv/IyHN1RA0ap/6L8Azi6hvP0R3I btZB5yz+RTbSdmhY3cGyac1Mn5MvpuQbr2jwQioRebnm+8m1lzeJymlqsYW/M39Y 3mVvrhAV9OUHcs3GKGiFoPnhh0mlRdtf0bITnUYc/TtWaMK2lqhdegA9G6FMWYPI lM7b+lFdzslrJ3oJEa1Ijq+A1p1Hw42Nt8swOdeylzNlPe7AbvmRUxgIMKM8+ObW vcBQytUrY1NU9LiaZJN3To/F1QnzqKCTm9hbxBK/xUd+98F1ZutlR/6/EkufD6k= =h3Mq -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
