+ - Speech.is: interop for Nameoin censorship resistant DNS->

Submitted by fsterman
fsterman (519061) writes "Growing up on Slashdot, I've been watched ICANN and the slow decline of the DNS system with great dismay. A year ago, I set out to create a scalable interoperability layer for Namecoin that doesn't involve proxies or mirroring content.

Speech.is reimplements DNS lookups within the browser itself. When coupled with emerging WebRTC P2P networks we are able to push all processing to the client side, shielding us from legal liability.

What's *really* amazing is that I was able to backport some of the censorship resistant properties of the Namecoin .bit TLD to regular websites. Governments will be unable to selectively censor websites and it will be *very* difficult for politicians and judges to rationalize their way into blacklisting the entire domain.

The www.speech.is website has the full nitty-gritty details. However, remember that this is a developer preview!"
