A decentralized non-profit social network with the power of Wi-Fi.
Just a little bit about the project
We are working on creating a collective, uncensored, democratic and decentralized form of communication around the UK and world that will allow free and open communication.
The pirate network will function just like any other social network, like Facebook and Twitter in terms of using a website, but we offer many more features and a much more strict policy on privacy.
The first difference is that we are developing software and hardware which will allow users to store their data and profile locally, this will mean that your private information is not stored on a central server, but on your own device or computer.
The second difference is that we are developing devices and open source software, using embedded devices, to enable people to create a localized internet in their area. This will basically work by creating a large wireless network over an area, powered by our Pirate WiFi devices. When a user is in range they can connect and communicate with other people using The Pirate Network on that network. This can also be used as a portable and secure means of communication at various events eg. protests, rallies and music events.
We are also working on helping local projects, such as musicians and artists, get their work out to more people. We will have much more information in the near future.
