You might be interested in the DWeb series of blog posts on this topic. Here  
is the piece published there on Scuttlebutt:

 > "I have played the most with Bitmessage, Retroshare and ZeroNet"

I'd love to learn more about your experiences with these apps. Have you  
written them up somewhere, eg on a blog or on these forums? If not, that  
would be really helpful.

tested yet"

I can't comment on the intricacies of the licensing, security etc (I know  
when I'm not qualified to commment), but I will say that I know the man who  
created the original Scuttlebutt, who I met through a local MakerSpace, and I  
know of a number of the other core contributors through their involvement in  
projects related to Enspiral and Loomio. So I can confirm that this tech was  
not created by some shady group of spooks of crackers, but a group of people  
who share our concerns about software freedom and privacy. If there are any  
freedom or security issues with any Scuttlebutt / SSB implementation, I'm  
confident it would be worth bringing them up with the devs, and that they  
would be taken seriously and addressed ASAP.
