Cryptography is the art of creating mathematical assurances for who can do what with data, including but not limited the classical example of encrypting messages so that only the key-holder can read it. Cryptography lives at an intersection of math, programming, and computer science. This subreddit covers the theory and practice of modern and *strong* cryptography, and it is a technical subreddit focused on the algorithms and implementations of cryptography.
Bitmessage is a P2P communications protocol used to send encrypted messages to another person or to many subscribers. It is decentralized and trustless, meaning that you need-not inherently trust any entities like root certificate authorities. It also aims to hide "non-content" data, like the sender and receiver of messages, from eavesdroppers. If Bitmessage is completely new to you, you may wish to start by reading the [whitepaper](http://bitmessage.org/bitmessage.pdf).
"Free software" means software that respects users' freedom and community. Roughly, it means that the users have the freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software. Thus, "free software" is a matter of liberty, not price. To understand the concept, you should think of "free" as in "free speech," not as in "free beer".
