I barely understand the dat:// parts of this.  But I imagine this could be important, particularly in places where freedom is limited and for academia.

  1. I wonder how much you need to know about Dat. I think all you need to know is
    that it’s like a website Dropbox. You have a folder on your computer that contains your
    website—and when I visit your site I can choose to keep a copy on my machine.
    So, basically, it’s like if Chrome allowed you to host a website. In Beaker
    you have a ‘Library’ page that shows all the websites you are also hosting.

    The mouse pointer in this picture is pointing to the number 10—showing that
    ten folks out there have copies of Tara Vancil’s website that she is sharing.
    This is the basic piece. Which is somewhat compelling.
    But the amazing part is that you can actually run blogging software directly
    from inside Beaker. A simple version of this is dead-lite,
    for instance, but much more will become possible in time. (Good to see you.
    Have a nice weekend!
