**What are Hubz?**
Hubz are independant webservers which seamlessly connect together to share stuff. Each hub can be operated standalone (like a blog) or as a webserver community (like a forum or social network). Hubz can be large or small. They work the same either way.
Hubz are general-purpose websites built using our revolutionary platform. Every website member can create their own unique website or social space to suit their needs and personality, and these can all interact.
When connected with other hubz, access permissions of anything published on an individual hub extends to the rest of the network, so that a member of my hub can easily and privately share something with a member of your hub. They do not require an account or password on my hub to do this. It just works.
But we don't stop there. Hubz all over the internet "magically" connect together into very large (or "internet-scale") social networks, websites, and communities; and *these* can all interact.
**Hubmaker** is the software which creates and manages hubz. It is open source and built on PHP/MySQL/Apache (Mariadb or Postgres and Nginx could also be used, we're pretty easy).
It just works.

Hubz are general-purpose websites built using our revolutionary platform. Every website member can create their own unique website or social space to suit their needs and personality, and these can all interact.
Each hub can be operated standalone (like a blog) or as a webserver community (like a forum or social network). Hubz can be large or small. They can also operate isolated or as connected hubz. When connected they form a super-network of hubz where any member can easily share and interact with any other member or members of any connected hubz.
But we don't stop there. Hubz all over the internet "magically" connect together into very large (or "internet-scale") social networks, websites, and communities; and *these* can all interact.
