<nettime-ann> Fwd: The Pirate Bay Co-Founder Starting P2P-DNS.


The Pirate Bay Co-Founder Starting P2P-DNS.

The Pirate Bay Co-Founder, Peter Sunde, has started a new project which
will provide a decentralized p2p based DNS system. This is a direct
result of the increasing control which the US government has over ICANN. The project is called P2P-DNS and according to the project's wiki, this
is how the project is described: 'P2P-DNS is a community project that
will free internet users from imperial control of DNS by ICANN. In order to prevent unjust prosecution or denial of service, P2P-DNS will operate
as a distributed and less centralized service hosted by the users of
DNS. Temporary substitutes, (as Alpha and Beta developments), are being
made ready for deployment. A network with no centralized points of
failure, (per the original design of the internet), remains our goal.
P2P-DNS is developing rapidly.'
