The Oculus Layout System supplies a Java layout API, and an easy-to-use visual builder, which works with both Swing and AWT.

MPN (Matrix Public Net) is a peer2peer network, based on people that trust each other. Messages are broadcasted over these links between the members of the net. Everyone gets the messages from friends and other persons he or she trusts. Then they are recommended to the ones that trust him/her. At each step the credibility of a message is decreased and if it is too small, the message is discarded and not recommended to friends. Part of the MPN is a XMMS/Winamp-Plugin that puts newsblocks into your music, whether it is Internet radio or MP3s from your hard disk/CD-ROM. The news are coming from your friends and other trustworthies (and from the friends of those, and so on). To publish a message you use the greporter program, which lets you easily record an audio message though a microphone.
