I thought the point of freedombox was to provide privacy and control of your data?
This is exactly what Retroshare tries to do - in a fully decentralised manner ;)
I'd rather not just focus on file-sharing features either...
Which other systems provide fully-decentralised forums?
Marc, if you are interested in anonymity... Retroshare provides strong anonymity.
Certainly better than bittorrent or other file-sharing networks like Mute.
The key is to build a trusted link-level network on which the file-sharing can take place.
We use the "Turtle" protocol - developed by Tanenbaum's group from the Vrije University.
Here is a link to an academic paper describing the "Strong Anonymity" features of Turtle:
and the wikipedia page on Turtle:
