Subject description: Archive.org Has Created a Decentralized or Dweb Version of Their Site
 

https://dweb.archive.org/

Why having Dweb?
The Internet Archive, or Archive.org, is a non-profit organization that stores snapshots of web pages and other media so that you can view them at different states in time even if they have been deleted or been changed. Even though sites like Archive.org exist and content posted on the Internet is typically there forever, lawsuits, censorship, DDOS attacks, and Internet outages could cause content to be removed or become inaccessible.

How is it done?
For these reasons, Archive.org is testing a decentralized version, or DWeb version, of their web site that allows their content to be delivered over peer-to-peer connections with different hosts sharing portions of or the same content. This decentralized version of Archive.org is running on the domain https://dweb.me/ or https://dweb.archive.org/ and uses a combination of HTTP and peer-to-peer protocols such as yjs, IPFS, WebTorrent, and GUN to deliver the content.

ZeroNet :
Open, free and uncensorable websites, using Bitcoin cryptography and BitTorrent network

If Dweb is new to you, you may try ZeroNet. A ZeroNet bundle is available, and installation is easy. You make zeronet.sh executable with chmod +x zeronet.sh, then you launch it with ./zeronet.sh. To make you anonymous, Tor is an option.

Play is one site to look for in ZeroNet.

PostPosted: Mon 24 Sep 2018, 17:51    Post subject: Identity in the Decentralized Web  

http://blog.archive.org/2018/08/25/identity-in-the-decentralized-web/

As The Death Ship demonstrates, the concept of verifiable identity is a cornerstone of modern life. Today we know well the process of signing in to shopping websites, checking email, doing some banking, or browsing our social network. Without some notion of identity, these basic tasks would be impossible.

That’s why at the Decentralized Web Summit earlier this year, questions of identity were a central topic. Unlike the current environment, in a decentralized web users control their personal data and make it available to third-parties on a need-to-know basis. This is sometimes referred to as self-sovereign identity: the user, not web services, owns their personal information.

Can you give me an example of how to use https://dweb.me/ to access one of these p2p networks. It doesn't seem to work for me Sad

PostPosted: Sun 30 Sep 2018, 10:15    Post subject: Solid
Subject description: To take back the power of the web from corporations
 

There is an urgency to turn things around,and the inventor of the Word Wide Web is working on it. His project is called Solid.

For years now, Berners-Lee and other internet activists have been dreaming of a digital utopia where individuals control their own data and the internet remains free and open. But for Berners-Lee, the time for dreaming is over.

“We have to do it now,” he says, displaying an intensity and urgency that is uncharacteristic for this soft-spoken academic. “It’s a historical moment.” Ever since revelations emerged that Facebook had allowed people’s data to be misused by political operatives, Berners-Lee has felt an imperative to get this digital idyll into the real world.

Berners-Lee explains that he is taking a sabbatical from MIT to work full time on Inrupt. The company will be the first major commercial venture built off of Solid, a decentralized web platform he and others at MIT have spent years building.

The app, using Solid’s decentralized technology, allows Berners-Lee to access all of his data seamlessly–his calendar, his music library, videos, chat, research. It’s like a mashup of Google Drive, Microsoft Outlook, Slack, Spotify, and WhatsApp.

The difference here is that, on Solid, all the information is under his control. Every bit of data he creates or adds on Solid exists within a Solid pod–which is an acronym for personal online data store. These pods are what give Solid users control over their applications and information on the web. Anyone using the platform will get a Solid identity and Solid pod. This is how people, Berners-Lee says, will take back the power of the web from corporations.

Subject description: combining BitTorrent's protocol and the blockchain
 

https://www.bittorrent.com/project-atlas/

Project Atlas will connect the BitTorrent peer-to-peer network and the TRON blockchain network via a set of bittorrent protocol extensions, a custom token, and an in-client token economy to address existing limitations and open a new borderless economy for exchanging value for computer resources on a global scale.
