[liberationtech] a privacy preserving and resilient social network

I had similar confusion when I first started poking around - couldn't
find a proper LICENSE file and then the ToUs including things that
read an awful lot like Facebook instead of a distrubuted
privacy-centric system.

Including:

---
a. You will not provide any false personal information on MyZone, or
create an account for anyone other than yourself without permission.

b. You will not create more than one personal profile.
---

My guess is this is because of the Uni affiliation right now..

Architecture right now I'm not going to comment on. Going to
reconsider past biases first.. -Ali
