>Congratulations!  Your job is now to figure out how to make it faster
while keeping the same privacy guarantees.  You don't get to opt out,
because you can't do any meaningful work until you've done this.

Actually it looks like there might be meaningful work here on the mirroring
front.  Mirroring content on trusted friends' machines is something the
Freedombox folks mused about, and the video demos what looks like
a user-friendly implementation of the same idea.

Just curious, Eleanor-- once you implement your "bullet-proof" privacy-
preserving network, how do you plan to make the user experience at all
tolerable without automated mirroring like what this developer has written
and tested?

Of course this is all moot while the license of "it's free and open, as long
as you ask me first and I agree" is in effect.  I can't imagine anyone taking
a serious look at the code with that.
