This file transfer system is a way to send stuff from one computer to another, safely. Developed by Brian Warner, Magic Wormhole "avoids all the complications of third-party tools, intermediary servers, logins and passwords, making a shortlink, worrying about making a file temporarily 'public' or fiddling with permissions, and so on" according to TechCrunch.

Only minimal software is required and that both you and the receiver are online before a few simple steps are followed. The file transfer system can be downloaded from a GitHub project page, where you can also contribute code. The package includes a library and command-line tool that enables the sharing of files.

Magic Wormhole demonstrates the desire people have to share files simply without sacrificing any privacy.
