Principles

TODO: elaborate. This is just a quick sketch.

  • Disk is cheap and getting cheaper. No need to delete in general.

  • Put the user in control. Own your data.

  • Privacy and paranoia

  • Decentralization is important, but..

  • End users won't be dorks. Must also be possible to be easy, hosted.

  • Content-Addressability has so many great properties (validation, cachability, etc). Use it as much as possible.

  • Redundancy and over-explicitness is fine. Compression will help. Redundancy and over-explicitness will be convenient for future digital archeologists, too.
