Peer-to-peer social software for OpenWrt
Occupy.here is a software project built in support of the Occupy Wall Street protest in New York City and other occupations beyond Zuccotti Park. The project was formerly called ows.offline, referring to its capacity to run on locally-hosted hardware without an upstream Internet connection. With occupy.here, users can anonymously post messages and files to a host router running OpenWrt Linux. A syncing mechanism allows remote instances of the software to exchange content using a kind of cross-pollination enabled by the movement of users.
The project is still in an early phase of development and welcomes new contributers.
