Instead of developing the deep state operative Tim Berners-Lee's World Wide Web backbone of the Internet, they should have continued developing Project Xanadu.

Check out the "Original 17 rules".

This stuff was more like IPFS, Holochain, ZeroNet, etc long before we were born. The "Decentralized Web" alternatives came way too late.

Lots of homes have heaters, water heaters, dish washers, washers, dryers, refrigerators, freezers, etc.

Why not have another mini-fridge to full-sized fridge or few in their basements, attics, or garages - except they'd be decentralized web servers. Instead of being utterly dependent on the Google monopoly cloud we'd all be part of the distributed free market cloud. Further NSA and their giant data sniffing plant could suck away and never get it all.
