[A mist-network for activists]

Amidst aims to provide

communication for activists

What is a mist network?

A mist is made up of small droplets of water suspended in the air. Under the right conditions, they congeal into a fog, a mist, a temporary gathering of tiny nodes that hovers over the landscape. When the weather changes, the mist evaporates and the air clears, as if it was never there.

Amidst is an ad-hoc, encrypted, peer-to-peer, decentralized network that forms during public gatherings. Like mist, it only forms when many people come together, and vanishes when the crowd dissolves. Amidst takes its design imperatives from the non-hierarchical structures of democratic grass roots assemblies.
