The Decentralized Communications Community Group has been launched:
The mission of this group is to specify and build a reference implementation of Decentralized Communications. Decentralized Communications enables natively inter-operable communication services that are able to trustfully use peer to peer connections without having to use central authorities or services. Decentralized Comms are inherently inter-operable without using standard protocols by using the Protocol on-the-fly concept, where the most appropriate protocol stack to be used, is selected and instantiated at run-time.
This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2017-03-23 by Paulo Chainho. The following people supported its creation: Paulo Chainho, Iago Soto Mata, Markku Raitisoja, Joep Meindertsma, Anton Roman, Sebastian Göndör. W3C’s hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of the activities.
We invite you to share news of this new group in social media and other channels.
