Syndie – an open source system for operating distributed forums, offering a secure and consistent interface to various anonymous and non-anonymous content networks.
Syndie lets your community seamlessly use many different resources at once, such as individual websites, mailing lists, Freenet keys, and file sharing networks, so there is no one place the lawyers/fascists/racists can attack. Anyone in your community can exploit whatever resources they find to share data without needing anyone’s permission. This is of course still the case in more pedestrian situations, like when a server crashes or the forum administrator forgets to pay the bill.

Syndie is being developed by an open group of volunteers, led by jrandom. Syndie’s code is entirely open source – unless otherwise specified, all code and content contained in the Syndie releases are put out into the public domain.
