@renan Wonderful post (and toot!); it's my new favorite. You make many great points; the radical potential of distributed systems must never be sacrificed for state or social acceptability.

@adamasnemesis Thank you very much for the encouraging words!
I hope this post can contribute to freedom in the coming years.
