Creating scalable technologies that evolve with user inventiveness

Society today is shifting its trust from large, central systems to distributed ones. Distributed systems present a diffuse target for attack, can work with no a priori societal or technical trust, and can start small and scale versus requiring universal agreement in advance. This is peer-to-peer to the extreme. The Viral Communications group develops distributed technologies, as well as useful applications to test the limits of trust, functionality, and scaling.
