Can the end user experience be stable without a Project SAFE specific OS? We know cloud models can be stable without worrying about the OS but what about Project SAFE? Response by @happybeing to a question about the stability of end user experience seemed to suggest that an actual Project SAFE OS may be needed for a water tight end users experience. A water tight experience would seem to be a precondition of trusting the system and its spreading.
Julian Assange, whose advice was to avoid using computers and phones of any sort to communicate, relents and starts to use Project SAFE. 5 minutes into his typing a pop up McDonald’s ad blocks his view of the text editor. He closes it. A few minutes later its another ad, this time a McDonald’s ad and an US Army ad “be all you can be ad.” It was just a bad dream Project SAFE isn’t even out yet. Wonders if the ad nets can be converted to showing useful content like the US gunships being order to hunt and kill EU journalists in Iraq.
I understand that if SAFE doesn’t make an attempt to address developer concerns to some extent there will be no content, bit I wonder if this is actually a serious confusion. A stake holder model seems like it could be a mistake. Seems much clearer to focus on nothing else but what end users need and what is in their best interests. We are all end users and that may be the best way to think about each and every one of us. To serve each and everyone one of us. This may also be ultimately the best way to take care of other interests, to the extent that they exist.
