First this is going to be my development blog. Right now I am still in the research phase, trying to figure out what made Hotline and Haxial so successful for so long, and why they disappeared for the most part. This blog will also serve as a place to educate my friends about what a darknet actually is, and for those friends to provide input about features they hope to see in the first alpha. I hope to have a public beta up by Halloween 2011, but I’m currently not making any promises. It will be done when it’s done. There are definitely parts that I don’t understand yet, like integrating encryption. If you are at all interested in this as yet unnamed project, please keep a close eye here and on my Facebook page. I’ll be posting updates there as well, although they will be significantly less detailed then here. I might even release some design documents here.
