EncycloSearch is an open-source encyclopedia search engine. It searches over two dozen encyclopedias at once, and allows you to submit your own articles. To find what you’re looking for faster, you can disable encyclopedias that aren’t relevant. Fine-tune your search by adjusting the number of results returned by each encyclopedia and the timeout for search requests. EncycloSearch doesn’t collect or store any of your data besides submitted articles—not even your IP address. Searches are ad-free and anonymous.


EncycloReader is a web application designed for reading multiple online encyclopedias using a common presentation standard. EncycloReader search uses external encyclopedias to access the most recent content, and to ensure a sufficient decentralization and unbiased representation of search results. The EncycloReader uses an adaptive   mechanism for article searches: The more searches are performed, the more precise and quicker answer one should get.  Searches are performed by accessing search metadata of online encyclopedias directly, or by using cached data created by the readers.


You should own and control all your social media data, and all of your lists of people who follow you, and whom you follow. There are plenty of alternatives to Facebook and Twitter, but what we need is a way to make all the various social media networks interoperable, with user-owners at the center. For that, we need a way to make all the social media networks “speak the same language.” We propose that RSS is that language, or a part of the solution anyway. So we have created a plugin for WordPress that converts a regular old blog into a social media-style feed. Version 2 will make it possible for these “miniblogs” to talk to each other and will set the stage for tying together all the social media networks into a single mega-network that you can never be shut out of.


FactSeek is a web application designed to search multiple online encyclopedias at once. Unlike general web web search engines that deal with very diverse web resources, FactSeek is focused on encyclopedic content. Search results of FactSeek are not distorted by advertisements and various search-engine optimization (SEO) methods to attract visitors.


Decentralizers.org is focused on the technology of decentralization. That includes decentralized social media, video, encyclopedia, and other content, as well as hosting and even money. This is not, however, first and foremost a crypto forum. It is about “decentralization” in a much broader and older sense, the sense in which the Internet as a whole is decentralized. To join, simply make an account and then make a post. Your first post will be moderated. After that, assuming the post passes muster, you will be able to post without moderation.
