DAT Protocol and Distributed Web Services

Posted by david on 17 September 2018 at 1:54 am

You may have heard of the Beaker Browser, which is based on Chromium and supports an alternate HTTP protocol named DAT. I have read about DAT and found Beaker while reading into it. The idea behind DAT is to allow you to share data P2P, whether it's files or a web page. Beaker has taken that idea a step further and incorporated seeding, so your data can persist without you to be shared.

This is right up my alley and something I'd like to push even further. I've always been a proponent of distributed systems and giving the internet power to the people.
