“Beaker uses a peer-to-peer protocol called Hyperdrive. ‘Hyperdrives’ are like websites. They store webpages, pictures, media, user data, and so on. Hyperdrives power a lot of Beaker’s best features.
Peer-to-peer means that you host data directly from your device.
One fun attribute of peer-to-peer is ‘co-hosting.’ This is where you help keep a hyperdrive online by storing the data and contributing bandwidth to other users. It happens temporarily when you visit a hyperdrive, but you can turn it on permanently for sites you like.”–Beaker Browser

“My sense is that you need to build up a nucleus of people who know each other and who can network and support each other [in developing a proficiency in a technology with the complexity of R.]”—Hadley Wickham in an interview with Dan Kopf, “What’s next for the popular programming language R?” Quartz. August 17, 2019.
