Syme brings privacy to your group conversations by encrypting everything you share. It's simple, easy to use and free.
The American intelligence service - NSA - infected more than 50,000 computer networks worldwide with malicious software designed to steal sensitive information. Documents provided by former NSA-employee Edward Snowden and seen by this newspaper, prove this.
90 100120 different websites (and growing).
Hundreds of channels (and growing).
Independent publishers and people just like you and me - on small sites across the globe, all linked together into a single "super-site".
As private as you want it to be.
Decentralised communications. Decentralised and nomadic identity. Decentralised publishing. Decentralised sharing. Decentralised permissions and access control. Decentralised directory services. Single sign-on across the entire network.
And this is only the beginning.

Nadat hij de verwoesting van Orkaan Haiyan zelf had aanschouwd, is de Filipijnse klimaatonderhandelaar Yeb Sano in hongerstaking gegaan en heeft hij een petitie gelanceerd die oproept tot een doeltreffende aanpak van de klimaatcrisis tijdens de klimaattop in Warschau. Steun hem nu!
Een derde van het voedsel dat wereldwijd geproduceerd wordt, belandt nooit op iemands bord. Van alle complexe ecologische en ethische problemen in de wereld is dit er een waar we echt iets aan kunnen doen, stelt de Britse voedselactivist Tristram Stuart. Hij krijgt hoe langer hoe meer gehoor bij politici, supermarktketens en academici wereldwijd.

The Red Matrix - at 15 months
Sometimes the day-to-day progress seems painfully slow and overall progress seems glacial. So once in a while one needs to turn around and look back to see how much progress has actually been made.
In July 2012 I started working on the Red Matrix, then just called "Red". It wasn't until around Xmas 2012 that we had enough of the Zot protocol implemented for two sites to communicate. Now we've got a number of people using Red for daily communications. It's much more responsive and usable than Friendica - from whence it originated. Most of the original Friendica communications and underlying interfaces have now been ported to the Red infrastructure. The notable omissions are birthday event notifications and channel deletion. We've got the infrastructure to provide these, it's just that we've been busy building more important things. (Oh, and cross-service federation, since no other providers are compatible with the capabilities provided with Zot identity and magic auth. )
We changed the name to "the Red Matrix" along the way because it was pretty hard to find the project if you Google'd "red".
So 15 months into the project, what have we got?
Decentralised identity with single sign-on across the web. This is freaking incredible once you've used it. You can go to other servers and they know who you are (and more importantly - what you're allowed to see). Even your conversations know who you are. If you're on the matrix, this is you:
[observer.photo][observer=0](You don't appear to be on the matrix)[/observer]
Nomadic identity that you can load from a thumb drive. Your channel can be decentralised so that if you back up your account your communications are immune from servers shutting down, temporarily or permanently. We're currently not trying to save all your web and media content (that will come later), but we're saving your relationships and profile and synchronising these between any cloned instances you might have.
We've got a decentralised mirrored directory. This is a potential point of failure in Friendica, and also was very confusing having a local directory and a "global" directory. Red just has a directory.
We've got website building tools - pages, blocks, menus, widgets, themes, plugins. And a layout specification (Comanche) to tie it all together and build complete websites from building blocks.
We've got an API that has been extended a bit for Red (much more to come).
We've got a very crude first start at DAV cloud storage, which will be fully integrated with our file and media sharing tools. Currently it's just a proof of concept but it's starting to come together.
You can have sourced channels which create content streams by combining things of interest from other channels. It's a matrix of channels that can publish, share and communicate.
A lot of Friendica's interface was ripped out and re-written. Things like notifications and making connections weren't consistent or very friendly.
Private things are even more private.
You can even recall a private message. This won't help if the other person already read it, but it gives you a chance to cover your ass if you wrote something you later decide that you regret and you catch it before they get to their mailbox.
There is so much more I don't even know where to begin. We've got an incredible number of features lurking under the covers - waiting for people to discover. Once you've spent some time in the matrix it's really hard to go back to the old services. They're so primitive and limiting in what they do. We're providing a way to connect the web. People, groups, information sources, organisations, websites - whatever. They're all just channels in the matrix. And they all link together in whatever ways you want them to.
Probably the best way to figure it out is to try it. And since it's free and open source, feel free to help out and make it better.
Daar staat ze dan. Een kleine zwarte vrouw in een grote witte sweater. Alleen op een rustig stukje Malieveld. Trots steekt ze een vlag in de lucht, de vlag van West-Papoea waar haar roots liggen, ...
‘Een of andere Jamaicaanse truthola, Shepherd, kan zich voorstellen dat die paar buitenlanders die hier een uitkering opstrijken en de wetten en regels willen bepalen zich verzetten tegen die Zwarte Pieten.’ Aldus motiveert Jaqueline dat zij evenals zeer veel andere Nederlanders een Facebookpagina heeft geliked met de koddige titel ‘Pietitie’.
