This is the repo for Ampify — an open and decentralised social platform.
For comparison, perhaps imagine a bastardised mix between Git, Facebook,
Unix, IRC, App Engine, Xanadu and Wikis.

The goal for the final 1.0 release is to have a fully decentralised "internet
operating system" style platform. We're currently working towards an initial
release for the end of this year — see the planfile.
