Networks are strongest where every user feels himself a part.
To have fair staff, do not to trust all power to one person; but divide it among many.
Thirteen independent servers, one united network with one user community and one common desire for freedom. By their joint effort, they have established a network of liberty.

IRCNow is a federation of self-governing servers. Each server provides its own services, has its own staff, writes its own policies, and manages its own money. Each server governs itself. We unite together to provide a strong, united network; to work on software development; and to aid one another against outside threats.

In the future, each server on the network will be bound by the IRCNow Constitution. IRCNow's governance is modeled after the US constitution and its principles of government. This network exists for the public interest, to promote liberty and justice on the Internet.
