@scalzi on the importance of having your own space on the internet

"Look, has existed for 24 years now, and Whatever for almost as long, and I never had to worry about whether some damn fool other than me was going to come in and wreck it."

Apparently I've been thinking and reading about the whole Elon Musk thingy recently.

@mattrose @scalzi To be honest, we still don't have spaces safe from wrecking. I had a scare when the .org TLD was in danger of becoming for-profit. We have decetralized DNS (e.g. Namecoin, Tor), but no major internet force makes using them easy.
