Mnet is a universal file space (a single, global virtual space into which you can put, and from which you can get, files). It comes with a single global namespace so that there is no conflict over filenames. It is also an emergent network, one in which the important features of the network result from the interactions of nodes operated by autonomous people or organizations who do not explicitly coordinate with one another. There are many interesting applications that can be built on top of an emergent network and a universal file space. The first application that has been written for the Mnet project is a file-sharing application which lets you search for and download files of all kinds from the universal file space. Mnet is descendant of Mojo Nation.
