Bitzi is a freely-available open community "metacatalog" that allows
users to describe, rate and verify any type of digital content based
each file's uniquely-distinctive "bitprint" (cryptographic hash).
Bitzi's comprehensive catalog of the available files from various
decentralized networks (such as Gnutella, FreeNet and Napster) also
provides users with a bit-level authentication system for determining if
their downloaded files are complete and uncorrupted. Bitzi has a
developer program and will be making its service available to the public
in the future.
