MAID SAFE has the tremendous advantage of launching after some amazing technologies. Technologies like Bitcoin, Bittorrent, Ip2, and Tor to name a few. These technologies have paved the way and prepared the world for MAID SAFE. They have had great success and great failures. What lessons can MAID SAFE learn from these successes and failures? Because, if we do not learn from our past we are doomed to repeat it.
@dirvine brings up a good point about Ip2 and Tor in one of his blog posts.
