A personal server is a virtual computer which stores your data, runs your apps, and manages your connected devices. Urbit is a new clean-slate system software stack. A nonpreemptive OS (Arvo), written in a strict, typed functional language (Hoon) which compiles itself to a combinator VM (Nock), drives an encrypted packet network (Ames) and defines a global version-control system (Clay).
Controlling your own data, code and identity are the definitions of digital freedom. The only tool needed to solve this problem is a general-purpose server made for human beings. Your urbit is your cryptographic identity, personal archive, application platform, and device hub. It's as easy to manage as an iPhone. Urbit is designed to become a digital republic: a network of individually owned nodes with no central point of control. Like a well-planned city, the friendly network is decentralized but connected, safe but free. Your computer isn't yours unless you can run whatever software you want and switch without losing data. Imagine if you could replace the Facebook UI, or move your Evernotes to Google Docs.
