So a few years ago I watched the documentary The Internet’s Own Boy and afterwards, went and read the Guerilla Open Access Manifesto.
I thought it was amazing, the concept of hosting paywalled academic articles and scientific research, for anyone to download because that type of information should always be free. Aaron Schwartz failed, I believe, because he was the only person downloading and hosting the articles (a centralized approach).
Now, take SAFE and decentralization. If a network of clients could all be downloading articles and contributing to their being hosted on SAFE, something like this would become feasible and maybe even safe for activists to contribute to without the same repercussions. Is my thinking sound? Has anyone else thought about doing this? I think it could become one of the SAFE net’s big causes.
