Mojo Nation

Mojo Nation is a peer-to-peer distributed file system in the style of Napster, Gnutella, and Freenet. It allows users to store, retrieve, and search for data. Published data can remain private or be available to the public. Mojo Nation uses RAID-like redundancy to provide reliability even when the pool of peers is untrustworthy and constantly shifting. A built-in credit system known as Mojo provides decentralized load balancing, and allows resources to be allocated efficiently and fairly. One of Mojo Nation's goals is to allow content to be highly available at minimal cost to the publisher.


Recent releases

  •  30 Aug 2001 21:01

    Release Notes: Improvements and fixes were made in the fuzzy/soft mask range logic. Some content trackers were returning dinodes in a different format, causing them to be rejected. Brokers now accept either format. Local reputations for brokers are updated in a some places where they were previously overlooked. Metainfo which is heard from other brokers and passed along to other brokers now includes a time-to-live field which can only be raised by a broker being online and issuing updated metainfo every so often.

            Please bear in mind that Mojo Nation is
            Pseudonymnous: you never supply any personal
            information or email addresses. There is no
            applying for an account. Your identity on Mojo
            Nation is a random RSA public key that is
            generated on your own computer. AZI does not run
            any of the content search engines so it
            cannot track what it's users are publishing,
            searching for, or downloading. AZI does not have
            any of your personal information to abuse.
