Thanks, and a) it's true, and b) I just pulled an allnighter to reply to an RFP for a 100-station PBX to be installed in July, c) my brain was already mushed last night, and d) as a result of b + c I'm loopy as hell right now;-) and about to get 4 hours sleep before heading back to client site in SF to work on their PBX toward their move next week which has to be absolutely seamless. 

Which is also why I'm highly skeptical of people who say they want to run a telco/ISP on volunteer labor, but that's another topic (or dead horse;-) for another day.

And, I emailed the list to start discussion and prompt background reading to get everyone potentially interested / affected up to a basic level of understanding about what would be going on and the implications. So it is important not to trust my judgement too much.

The reason I'm (apparently uncritically;-) enthusiastic is that Anthony & I are friends and we've discussed freedom & privacy issues extensively.  He's a coder with serious smarts/skills/background, and he walks his talk ferociously, so if he's endorsing something as a viable privacy application, I trust his judgement.

Hell yeah!  Double hellyeah!  And another thing to put on CTel "freedom box" home servers on the mesh.

I'd love to try this.

YaCy is a free distributed search engine, built on principles of peer-to-peer (P2P) networks. All YaCy-peers are equal and no central server exists. It can be run either in a crawling mode or as a local proxy server, indexing web pages visited by the person running YaCy on his or her computer. (Several mechanisms are provided to protect the user's privacy.)

Access to the search functions is

 by a locally running web server which provides a search box to enter search terms, and returns search results in a similar format to other popular search engines.
