[liberationtech] NYT: Eben Moglen Is Reshaping Internet

Love the approach, Eben -- definitely the right direction. I looked at
SheevaPlug with a group in New Zealand a couple months back, and came
away fairly impressed. Usability is even more vital here than usual --
needs to be Apple-esque and run the first time with minimal config.

I'd also suggest modularizing this as much as possible into separate
open source projects. If it's monolithic, you'll limit outside
contributions and also make it less relevant since components won't
get used outside of FB. I'd guess this should be four for five
separate projects under the FB umbrella, but I'm sure you're already
thinking along those lines.

Adelante!
