"Pirate site blocking making its way into free trade agreements" torrentfreak.com/pirate-site-b

This is much more serious than "can I get a pirated copy of something". The real effects of stuff like this is control, censorship, and gatekeeping of the internet in general.

Do you have a subscription to Disney+ Internet? Oh, only Netflix Internet? Dang, I really wanted to show you this website.

This "silly" joke maybe is one of the best illustrations of where we're headed if we don't fight for network freedom. It ain't pretty.

But it's not hopeless. I believe we can build an internet for everyone. I've centered my life around that work.

@cwebber It’s proven that ISPs can’t be trusted not to track, intercept and even alter our data in transit. Time to build a mesh net, a connected superhighway that runs over the top of public infrastructure and just skips all the nonesense.

1. Make the encryption on lower level, between hosts, so the high-level protocols never will go unencrypted.
2. Make sure that the cryptographic alghorythms can be easily upgraded to their future, more secure equivalents.
3. Replace IPs and MACs with public keys generated by your machine.
4. Replace unsafe passwords with public key authentication like in SSH.
5. Let anyone add subdomains to their host, even without DNS server, like: gitea.0x560c8755d2b66600cc81044806cd483d7c1a00fe2f3827ab1acf37a6754affb3
6. Let anyone decide whether their host should be available from the Internet or local network only.
7. Get rid of JavaScript or any other arbitrary code executed remotely on your machine.
8. Always use relative links when reffering to itself, to avoid problem caused by domain change.
9. Avoid blockchain. It's a new form of Internet centralization (web3).
