Togethernet is a collaborative archiving software in the form of a desktop web app that allows both peer-to-peer (P2P), traceless messaging as well as archived communications.
Designed around the ethos of data transparency and consent, the goal of the software is to transform digital rights practices such as the right to be forgotten into an embodied practice through the reimagination of software architecture and user experience.
The software contains two types of communication channels: the Ephemeral Channel and the Archival Channel.
The Ephemeral Channel uses the WebRTC peer-to-peer protocol, which means conversations do not go through a centralized server (bye google facebook AWS 👋🏼) and are permenantly erased once the browser closes.
The Archival Channel publishes meeting notes to a centeralized database that your organization may self-host or host on a third party’s server.
