Project Meshnet looks to evolve internet into encrypted decentralized network
Our objective is to create a versatile, decentralized network built on secure protocols for routing traffic over private mesh or public internetworks independent of a central supporting infrastructure.Recent events around the world have demonstrated the importance of the free flow of information in regards to human rights and the free exercise thereof. Unfortunately, existing infrastructure is susceptible to a number of critical flaws that render it vulnerable to disruption. This project hopes to supplement the current infrastructure to create a secure, independent network that can operate under any condition including natural disaster or general failure of existing infrastructure.READ MORE ON PROJECT MESHNET

The Great Cryptogram distinguished itself from its peers by being over 1000 pages long, and as can be seen by the butchery Donnelly did to his copy of The Great Folio, by the thousands of hours he was willing to spend chasing his tail. It is the very definition of trying too hard…
