In this first episode of our new season, we interview Tamas Kocsis, the founder and developer Zeronet.
Zeronet is a relatively new project that gives us the ability to develop completely distributed websites, invulnerable to censorship of any kind.
With Tor anonymity baked in, at least on the Windows version, that creates a very powerful environment for free expression.
Today Zeronet founder Tamas talks us through the history of the platform and some of the features he’s working on at the moment.
In addition he discusses plans to add a BitTorrent plugin that may be able to provide distributed, anonymous video streaming – which sounds like a new headache for Hollywood just around the corner.
But, Zeronet isn’t just a about torrents: we also hear from Tamas how it can be used right now to set up anonymous messaging, forums, marketplaces, and more.
