SAFE is beautiful but scary tech. This holds especially true to governments that work diligently to suppress and control its citizens. If extreme measures to cripple SAFE were considered, it seems a registry would be one of those. Forcing all who host content on the internet to register their IP address in an attempt to block access to SAFE. This would effectively create a whitelist that would cause any connection to any non-whitlisted IP to fail. Is there an easy way around this? Is it even a problem.
SAFE is positioned to cause EXTREME disruption to financial and government intistutions. The scary content on this network will rally swarms of people to pressure governments to act. The media will be on fire. This is no bittorrent or Tor we’re talking about. This is basically pure unaccountable anarchy. The likes of which we have never seen. I respect the ideals of this community and the Maidsafe team, but the worlds’ governments will try to figuratively nuke this network into oblivion. Goin as far as to shrink the internet if need be. Most wont even notice. That scares the turd out of me.
@sarahpentland , any developing strategies for perception control up your sleeve? Beta should be the target. A fully live SAFE network will have already stirred the pot before its qualified.
