Pirate Box, David Darts

The PirateBox is a self-contained mobile communication and file sharing device.  Simply turn it on and transform any space into a free and open communications and file sharing network.  Inspired by pirate radio and the free culture movements, PirateBox utilizes Free, Libre and Open Source software (FLOSS) to create mobile wireless communications and file sharing networks where users can anonymously chat and share images, video, audio, documents, and other digital content.  PirateBox is designed to be private and secure.  No logins are required and no user data is logged.  Users remain completely anonymous – the system is purposely not connected to the Internet in order to subvert tracking and pressure user privacy.  PirateBox is registered under the Free Art License (FAL 1.3) which grants the right to freely copy, distribute, and transform creative works according the the principles of copyleft.
