Mnet is a distributed file store.

A distributed file store is a shared virtual space into which you can put, and from which you can get, files.

Mnet is also an emergent network. An emergent network is 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 distributed file store. 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.

The Mnet project is a Free Software, Open Source project run solely by hackers volunteering in the public interest. It currently has no commercial sponsorship, although there is at least one company that is using related source code. See the related projects page for more information.
