This is a specialization of our general Technology section, focusing more explicitely on the 'true internet' or distributed P2P infrastructures.


Introduction

Projects we find worthty of support:

  1. We Rebuild is a cluster of net activists who have joined forces to collaborate on issues concerning access to a free internet without intrusive surveillance [1]
  2. Open Source Mesh Networking projects monitored by Open Source Mesh
  3. Various strategies to achieve Free Fiber to the home
  4. High Priority Free Software Projects: "The FSF high-priority projects list serves to foster the development of projects that are important for increasing the adoption and use of free software and free software operating systems."

Projects to decentralize/distribute the internet:


  1. Appleseed [2] - distributed social network
  2. Bitcoin, a decentralized internet currency.
  3. Diaspora will hopefully be a social networking community where users can run their own federated “pods”, thus owning their personal data and directly controlling what is shared with who.
  4. The Dot-P2P Project, an alternative DNS hierarchy that resists censorship.
  5. The Freedom Box initiated by Eben Moglen and the Freedom Box Foundation: independent plug-in server
  6. GNUnet is a framework for secure peer-to-peer networking that does not use any centralized or otherwise trusted services
  7. GNU Social [3]
  8. LittleShoot is a new web-based p2p file sharing site founded by one of the creators of LimeWire that could live up to its pedigree
  9. Lorea [4] - distributed social networks, already running on 10 networks
  10. One Social Web [5] - distributed social network using xmpp
  11. One Swarm [6]- F2F (friend2friend) P2P sharing; a new peer-to-peer tool that provides users with explicit control over their privacy by letting them determine how data is shared
  12. Open BTS: working on a new kind of cellular network that can be installed and operated at about 1/10 the cost of current technologies, but that will still be compatible with most of the handsets that are already in the market.
  13. Open Media Vault [7]
  14. Open Moko, A project to create a 'free' or open source Open Mobile Telephony platform.
  15. Open PGP encryption is based on self-issued certificates which gain authority as a result of a web of trust expressed via user- maintained keyrings rather than a hierarchical certificate authority system that can be centrally compromised.
  16. Open Storage Pod, [8] open hardware project, small cubes to store terabytes
  17. Open WRT [9]- GNU/Linux based free firmware for gateways and routers.
  18. Own Cloud, data storage project from the wider KDE community
  19. Pirate Box [10] is a self-contained mobile collaboration and file sharing device. Simply turn it on to transform any space into a free and open file sharing network.
  20. Plexus [11]: "Plexus is a protocol for the social web, ‘plumbing’ that allows all social web components to communicate: from each, according to their ability, to each, according to their need"
  21. Retro Share [12] - secure communications with friends
  22. Seeks Project [13] - "social websearch"
  23. Sovereign Computing Group [14] - similar project to Freedom Box, with a very interesting Manifesto.
  24. Sparkle Share, [15] open source 'dropbox' replacement
  25. Status.Net is a microblogging system that allows users to run their own Twitter-like site and federate selected streams with other systems.
  26. The Tahoe Least-Authority File System, a highly fault-tolerant, secure internet filesystem.
  27. The Tor Project, an anonymizing overlay network.
  28. Unhosted: "Unhosted is a project for strengthening free software against hosted software. With our protocol, a website is only source code. Dynamic data is encrypted and decentralised, to per-user storage nodes. This benefits free software, as well as scalability, robustness, and online privacy."
  29. YaCy is a search engine where many nodes share information to build a distributed index.
