Freenet is attempting to "rewire" the Internet to be anonymous and decentralized. It's more than just an attempt to make a better Napster, it's a whole new way of doing things. One of the core Freenet developers will be discussing a project to port all of the interesting Internet protocols to Freenet. E-mail, news, chatting, and more, all available from your normal clients but with the added anonymity and decentralization of Freenet.
