Freenet's Ian Clarke Speaking at C-Level

Freenet/Locutus creator Ian Clarke will be speaking at 7pm this Sunday at Chinatown’s C-Level, the neat art/tech collective co-founded by my friend Mark Allen.

Freenet was the first of the next-generation P2P applications, more concerned with anonymous and decentralized content redistribution than with swapping the latest Shania Twain single. Locutus is the commercial arm of Freenet, allowing people to search shared files in controlled groups. Following the lecture, there will be an open meeting of the spanking-new Los Angeles Art and Technology Hackers club. Should make for an interesting evening.
