Hi All, I’ve actually been lurking here for quite some time. I was designing a similar platform some years back (not in any serious capacity though), and stumbled across MaidSafe while learning Rust.
I’m a software architect/engineer and am currently on the road full-time working on the VERY early stages of Boltline, a platform for rock climbers.
I’m passionate about freedom generally, particularly the freedom of information, but also the freedom of individuals/organizations to defy the status quo and innovate. The debate over government enforcement of net neutrality here in the US has reignited my desire to create a web that’s opaque to ISPs. While the incumbent rules do have nice effects, I would rather enforce their principles through mathematical constraints than easy-to-change (or ignore) regulations.
