I was just surfing a bit around and came across this interresting sounding 


here is a short description of what it is from their page:

"ENTROPY stands for Emerging Network To Reduce Orwellian Potency Yield and as 
such describes the main goal of the project.

    * ENTROPY is developed as a response to increasing censorship and 
surveillance in the internet. The program connects your computer to a network 
of machines which all run this software. The ENTROPY network is running 
parallel to the WWW and also other internet services like FTP, email, ICQ. 
    * For the user the ENTROPY network looks like a collection of WWW pages. 
The difference to the WWW however is that there are no accesses to central 
servers. And this is why there is no site operator who could log who 
downloaded what and when. Every computer taking part in the ENTROPY network 
(every node) is at the same time server, router for other nodes, caching 
proxy and client for the user: that is You.
    * After you gained some experience with the ENTROPY network, there are 
command line tools for you to insert whole directory trees into the network 
as a ENTROPY site. So ENTROPY does for you what a webspace provider does for 
you in the WWW - but without the storage and bandwidth costs and without any 
regulation or policy as to what kind of content you are allowed to publish. 
Everyone can contribute his own ENTROPY site for everybody else to browse 
through. The contents is stored in a distributed manner across all available 
and reachable nodes and no one can find out about who put up what contents 
into the network [1]. Even if your node is not actively running, your 
contents can be retrieved by others -- without knowing that it was actually 
you who published the files. Of course this is only true if you do not 
publish your name (or leave your name or other personal data in the files you 

Have fun,
Juergen "

so i thought i might share the url with you peoples.

a developer there)
