One thing I'd love to see is hackers, NGOs, and small media orgs pooling their resources and doing edge caching for each other on their servers.
Most of the time most servers do not use all the bandwidth, so this could help handle peaks in traffic.
Two things would be needed on the tech side: 1. websites becoming more easy to cache (do you really need this bit of dynamic content there?), and 2. some way of doing TLS termination without giving out private keys.
Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.
Please help. This is important.
