(Currently windows only - but could be ported to Mac using py2app and Lunix using cx_freeze). This means you can carry around a prebuilt python environment on a USB memory stick - Python on a stick. Come and get your gannet ripple, python on a stick.

an Internet within an Internet

March 1st, 2005

Freedom of speak, think & share......whereever you are and who ever you are...

Freenet
Freenet is free software which lets you publish and obtain information on the Internet without fear of censorship. To achieve this freedom, the network is entirely decentralized and publishers and consumers of information are anonymous. Without anonymity there can never be true freedom of speech, and without decentralization the network will be vulnerable to attack.

GnuNet
GNUnet is a framework for secure peer-to-peer networking. The primary application implemented within the GNUnet framework is anonymous censorship-resistant file-sharing.

The goal of the GNUnet project is to provide an infrastructure for secure peer-to-peer networking. All communication in GNUnet is authenticated and link-to-link encrypted.
