    Thanks for all the resources! These definitely provide a lot of useful context for considering the arguments in the article. If you don't mind me asking, what's your relationship to the topic?

    Looks like we're in the same boat! I bought my domain, cosmo.red, from Gandi before transferring it to Cloudflare. Once names.sr.ht launches, I think I'll finally be able to settle down for good.

    "Y'all" is just as reasonable a contraction as "I'm," "can't," etc.. Y'all English speakers are crazy for failing to invent and popularize a plural "you."

    That goes a little bit against the freedom idea of a mesh network, would you pay to use a unknown network? me neither

    Of course! Aren't we already doing that? What kind of network are you using to reply to my comment? I certainly don't trust my ISP. Fortunately, encrypted communication protocols like TLS and HTTPS make this a non-issue.

    The best scenario would be every client would be a node, unfortunately that's not possible (mobile phones don't have much range and are often limited software wise)

    Agreed, hence why we should pay people to maintain proper networking hardware.

    Initiatives like Althea have seriously piqued my interest in the space. I'd love to set up my own node, but I'd be the only one for miles. Mesh networks seem to be facing a serious chicken-or-egg...
