I’m most curious about the paradigm of a social network built on open source peer-to-peer. Has this been tried before?
The tech could “help establish more distributed social networks, … and perhaps even add to the long-dreamed-of semantic web — an internet made not of messy text, but one unified by underlying meta-data that computers can easily parse.”
What does this mean for you? Imagine a web with search & connections that did not require a centralized service like google or facebook.
This could be seriously disruptive tech that changes the nature of the web.
