# Re-build the Internet, together!
# The Internet potluck
Connect directly with your friends and explore a network of communities from around the world.
# Locally sourced ingredients
A community garden for collectively growing content and services.
# A taste of Internet freedom
biton doesn't share food with nosy neighbors or data-greedy bullies.
# Is biton anonymous? - NOT YET!
If you need to hide your identity, biton is not ready for that just yet. Instead, take a look at Tor and I2P for anonymous browsing, or at Freenet for anonymous publishing.
# The juicy details
biton is a peer-to-peer network built around swarms — groups of peers that store encrypted files and relay requests through one another. biton swarms interconnect in a global network that provides some degree of plausible deniability, meaning that adversaries cannot be sure about who originally made a request. In this way, biton can be used for evading information controls and for building community networks around local data and services.
# Come along and BYOb (*Bring Your Own biton)
Make the network stronger by running a relay, contributing to the project, building biton applications, and volunteering to your local community kitchen.
