Interesting that you think there is issues with their model. I'll have a search for them.
Yes, maidsafe may take sometime to get a big move over, but I think it could happen. I'm actually visiting China at the moment and it is very interesting to see how little I can access here: Google, Facebook and YouTube being the main ones I've noticed. Not only does the world need secure and private platforms it needs ones that break down borders just like bitcoin is doing with finance.
I'm a software controls engineer that works with automated machinery / systems, but seriously thinking of taking some time out to learn some other programming languages so I can build on top of maidsafe and blockchain systems. All this stuff interests me far too much. I need to find a way I can contribute more and play around with ideas.
