At GreyCoder, we cover the emerging world of distributing computing or peer-to-peer technologies. Our theory is this:
- Media transfers should be peer-to-peer and encrypted (e.g. Bittorrent)
- Payments should be peer-to-peer (e.g. Bitcoin)
- Internet Access should be peer-to-peer (a meshnet) (e.g. Open Garden or Freedombox)
- Communications (email, messaging, voice, video chat) should be peer-to-peer and encrypted (e.g. Thunderbird with the Enigmail extension, OTR Messaging, Redphone)
- Media browsing should be peer-to-peer and encrypted (e.g. Tor)
- Media syncing should be peer-to-peer (e.g. Bittorrent Sync)
- Media should be saved in open formats (e.g, Matroska, FLAC, OGG, EPUB, PNG)
More broadly, we cover any product or service that empowers people, by connecting them to their peers:
- Bitcoin: A decentralized payment system
- Bittorrent: A peer-to-peer file sharing system
- Lending Club: A peer-to-peer lending service
- Zidisha: A service that allows you to make peer-to-peer micro-loans
- IndieGoGo: A service that crowdfunds new products and projects
- Bandcamp: A service that allows musicians to sell directly to their fans
