This is an open letter to the community of programmers, white-hat hackers and all those who wish to be part of an information revolution that may play a significant role in the future of freedom and liberty.
As you well know, the internet is under attack. The corrupt, criminal governments and corporations of the world are trying to “cleanse” the internet and remove all truthful information from it. Websites that question the government’s official position on 9/11, fluoride, aspartame, the War on Drugs or the false War on Terror are being targeted for removal. With legislative assaults like SOPA, PIPA and ACTA, the days of true freedom of speech on the internet appear be numbered. Content censorship by Google, Twitter and Facebook is no longer conjecture; it is policy.
As a former software developer myself, I recognize the urgent need for what I am calling a Peer-to-peer news distribution technology that relies on no central server and could redistribute news (text, audio and video) in a similar fashion to today’s bittorrents.
The truth-telling news industry (“alternative” news) needs a technology that will bypass search engine censorship and which cannot be taken down with an attack on a single server or point or origin. There are tens of millions of internet users who, right now, would be thrilled to serve as peers of this system, redistributing news from confirmed “freedom” sources that are reporting real news that the world’s corrupt corporations and criminal governments don’t want people to read.
