Redecentralize

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.

WebRTC can speak whatever protocol you want (you can design your own). WebTorrent is going to speak the same BitTorrent protocol, as much as possible.

Johan, Can you sell us/me on Tribler a bit? Looks like it's a bittorrent client that you're putting behind TOR, plus an over-the-local-wifi feature.

folks! Just wanted to share that the WebTorrent Project just shipped WebTorrent Desktop (BETA) today! https://webtorrent.io/desktop WebTorrent Desktop bridges the WebTorrent and BitTorrent networks. If enough people end up running it, BitTorrent in the browser will really happen. Projects like the Internet Archive can make huge files available

story. As far as funding goes, three of the projects you list are funded to some level by angel or venture capital: BitTorrent, ZeroTier, and Sandstorm. I think OwnCloud, which you didn’t mention, is funded too. Some capital is going into this stuff

submitted! IPFS - my impression is it is a developer level tool. Are there any end user apps / hosting services based on it you recommend? BitTorrent - is very well known, and has its own very particular use case for file sharing. So I'm not inclined to cover

blog with a mouse click. Twister is a blockchain Twitter alternative. http://twister.net.co/ Zeronet and Twister use implementations of the blockchain technology and Bittorrent to setup the netwerk and distribute the content. While Twister is limited to microblogging functionality Zeronet aims to setup all kind of services and websites

things that are usable for developers and IT people and then things that are usable for end users. How do we submit stuff? IPFS, BitTorrent, ZeroTier, and of course all the cryptocurrency stuff should be on there to the extent that it is usable. Re: Redecentralize Radar, our super picky
