“The mindset has been how do we make servers better. Instead of saying servers are the problem let’s try and remove them.”



Now I see how you plan on attributing safe coin directly on the basis of attention. That is elegant and should give universal open access. Its Safe Attention, where attention is real or ultimate currency and wont be used against end users.

I hope there are a couple cautions built in against the spamming of attention. First of course is delisting on the Safe Search and Trending based on software and user input. Any app asking or trying to pay to turn of the delisting filter would have triggered a criterion for delisting. Also end users would have the ability to turn off the safe coin contribution to an application.

I find this very interesting in part because it makes more sense of what the sponsored data approach is doing with its likely goal of zero rate for the developed world by phasing out end user cash paid general access. They will say that a system like Safe is skipping their toll box like they tried with bit torrent, with predictable influence from their useless interlocking boards.

Thanks David. They don’t always pick up everything correctly so a few errors in there (including the spelling of David’s surname), but a pretty positive piece all the same.

Msgd her about the proper spelling a while back though.


It’s worth following the (extremely annoying, but eye-opening) discussion on Hacker News Here:

Lots of debbie downers in there who only have a surface level understanding of Maidsafe.
