The pepys project aims at representing all resources on the internet as files. We believe this new architecture will bring several improvements over the existing system. In particular, we will be able to provide a faster, more efficient internet service for end users in addition to value added services such as backup and synchronization of their data. The benefits of representing the the internet as a giant distributed filesystem are many, and we will not attempt to list them here.
