Had to hammer this home to a person over drinks on Friday, to an engineer of all people.
I finally hit the ball out of the park when I said this.
- The planet will be turned in to one giant hard disk.
- Each users donated hard disk space will be a sector on this giant hard disk.
- The data will be backed up accross all harddisk-sectors smartly…( and this next part convinced them
to say “take my money”) The algorithm is like RAID but better!
I went on to give the example we all now as a planet download the same movie or music multiple
times, and as part of the SAFENetwork having multiple backups will be very reliable.
At a very basic level I mentioned that data will be encrypted and sliced up in a million pieces and
backed up across the planet with a RAID type algorithm.
Technically saying RAID is incorrect isn’t it? But its the only way, TO AN ENGINEER!!!, I could explain it in this case. oh man.
Anyway 2 more people are on board now.
