A web without servers, that’s the dream.
And do it without rebuilding the entire stack of architecture. What he is proposing here is almost too optimistic.
- Base it on P2P tech (BitTorrent is a front-runner)
- Privacy is maintained, distributed authentication system without centralized usernames and passwords
- Versions of history are maintained, Wayback Machine is your only solution anymore
- Publishers get paid (another stab at Bitcoin fantasy)
What we need to do now is bring together technologists, visionaries, and philanthropists to build such a system that has no central points of control.
I can see the appeal. If only capitalistic incentives doesn’t get in the way.
