Born February 16, 1977
Ian Clarke is the creator and lead desgner on a project called Freenet.
“Freenet is a peer-to-peer platform for censorship-resistant communication. It uses a decentralized distributed data store to keep and deliver information, and has a suite of free software for publishing and communicating on the Web without fear of censorship. Both Freenet and some of its associated tools were originally designed by Ian Clarke, who defined Freenet’s goal as providing freedom of speech on the Internet with strong anonymity protection.” – Wikipedia
We’re hoping that the gap between amateur creativity and creativity funded by large, centralized media companies will probably continue to shrink.
