• Peer-to-Peer Research

last modified October 31, 2019 by strypey

The theoretical platform and research interests Strypey set up Disintermedia to explore are very compatible with those of the P2P Foundation. P2PF have reproduced a number of Strypey's blog posts from here on their own blog, and the general research accumulating on the Dis wiki, particularly lists of projects and information about them, would be of use to more people hosted on the P2PF wiki. Chances are more people will find them there, and perhaps contribute to them. Once the porting project is suitably advanced, the 'Research' column on the main page of this wiki will be a set of links to P2PF wiki pages, or possibly removed, so the front page is only for Proposed and Active Disintermedia projects (including this page).

This page keeps track of pages moved to the P2PF wiki from Disintermedia and associated projects on CoActivate, or created there instead of here, as well as Dis blog posts they've reproduced. The info about ported pages can also be found on the Dis page on the P2P wiki. It may be that this page is retired and the link that brought you here linked to that page instead. Each of these pages needs to have a message added at the top with a link to the P2PF page its been ported to, and whether the port is complete. That way, new info can be added on the relevant P2PF page, and anyone arriving on retired Dis pages via old links can find the maintained version.

Pages in the Process of Being Ported to the P2P Foundation Wiki

Note: if you check one of these pages and all the contents on the Dis page is present on the P2PF page, please:

  • make a note at the top of the Dis page that it's retired, with a link to the P2PF version for further edits.
  • remove the wiki link to the retired page from the main page of the wiki (usually in the Research column).
  • move the entry from this table to the top table for completed ports.

Pages to be Copied to P2P Foundation (Disintermedia version to be retired)

The goal is to port pretty much anything on this wiki that is potentially of general interest, so that what remains here is information specific Disintermedia and its projects, which could (in theory) begin to be ported to a static homepage. A list of pages that would be good candidates for porting can be listed here.
