Free Network Project

2006-04-06 23:51:10.026167+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

I've rambled in various forii (yes, I know, it may not proper latin, but I'm working up to a crack about a second grader with glasses, okay?) about a DNS-like system that would store keys that you'd get from someone you trust, and work in some sort of nebulous way to track other systems in a way that would help compartmentalize the web again. Not sure what I hope to accomplish with it, just that I think there's the germ of an idea there.

Which led me to The Free Network Project, a system to enable anonymous speech on the net by sharing resources. And parts of this are really appealing, and parts of this aren't, and it's making me wonder just how far I'm willing to separate speech from responsibility...

Actually, forii would be fairly accurate. Forum is neuter but not of the declensions where the plural ends in -ae. The actual plural is fori with a long "i" - but the long "i", historically, was an shortening of "ii". There were alot of "artifacts" in Latin spelling that were generated by people needein to carve the letters into marble...

I think he got that from high school.
