[liberationtech] Decentralization/Federation

Hi,
an interesting position from MIT Media Lab that is at least in part
relevanto to a thread launched by Yosem in Frebruary on this list [1]
Defending​ ​ Internet​ ​ Freedom​ ​ through​ ​ Decentralization: Back​ ​
to​ ​ the​ ​ Future?

 <http://dci.mit.edu/assets/papers/decentralized_web.pdf>

I think this technical analysis should open a more wide debate before
jumping to "will work/ will not work" conclusions: issues of such
complexity could not have a purely technical solution.
Economic, social, juridical, political issues should also be taken into
account.
For instance the report does not consider the innovations introduced in
a global data market by the EU GDPR.

Bests,

Alberto
