We are very proud to have been accepted to present a paper on the PoP framework in AoIR 2016, the conference for internet researches, on October 5th to 8th in Berlin, Germany.

During our presentation, we will show how the PoP software works, and how it attempts to break the information monopoly from large internet companies by allowing websites to bundle together into PoP networks, allowing their users to interact with other website’s users. We’ll also delve into how PoP could spur an ecosystem of websites exchanging content for micro-payments, allowing websites’ owners to be part of the digital economy.

We hope we can attract interest from other researchers and attendees, and forge collaborations to make this project bigger. While in Berlin, we’ll also take the occasion to present the framework in different software conferences and events. If you’re from Berlin, or happen to be there next October, and you’re interested to know more about PoP, let us know and we can meet!

I'm the founder of the PoP framework. I've been working in this project since April 2013, when developing the website for MESYM (https://www.mesym.com), an environmental NGO in Malaysia which I co-founded. Later on, I've used the software to launch other projects, such as TPP Debate (https://my.tppdebate.org) and Agenda Urbana (https://agendaurbana.org). And since September 2016, I'm offering the PoP software as open source for the community to benefit from it. 3D53 5A36 A309 8A5E F304 B41D B8F0 D252 1FA9 EF2E
