Software to help free exchange of information released
The Free Network Project has released Freenet software which allows journalists to acquire and publish information for free on the Internet without facing censorship. The network is decentralized and publishers and users are kept anonymous.
Freenet is different from other software in that it allows users to upload content and disconnect from the site if they choose. Users are not allowed to control what is stored; content is kept based on its usage, and the least popular content is removed to allow newer information to be posted.
Freenet began in 1999. It is available for Windows, Linux, and OSX.
