Every time an Internet censorship bill like SOPA, CISPA, PIPA, ACTA, is shot down by public protest, another one pops up. To be sure, one day when we're all distracted by something else, an Internet censorship bill will pass. That's where Project Meshnet comes in.
Whereas the network routing system Tor uses peers to connect and send information through the infrastructure that is already in place for the Internet Project Meshnet is proposing an entirely new internet with different routing protocols. Multiple computers are connected to each other via a wireless connection spanning a large area and all information, messages, documents, music, images, etc., passes from computer to computer until it reaches its destination. If a computer or node is down than an alternative route is found. In other words, the architecture of the meshnet is owned by countless individuals instead of a handful of corporate providers, which makes the oppression of free speech practically impossible.
“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."
