at the DefCon security conference in Las Vegas Friday, Freenet founder
Ian Clarke told attendees that the network has recovered from a
"catastrophic" failure June 2003, but that testing is ongoing.
Freenet promises a way for people share information on the internet more or less anonymously using strong encryption
and indirect routing. It gained notoriety in Napster's day when it was perceived as a way to anonymously pirate music.
