I invented the web. Here are three things we need to change to save it | Tim Berners-Lee

It has taken all of us to build the web we have, and now it is up to all of us to build the web we want – for everyone

Today marks 28 years since I submitted my original proposal for the worldwide web. I imagined the web as an open platform that would allow everyone, everywhere to share information, access opportunities, and collaborate across geographic and cultural boundaries. In many ways, the web has lived up to this vision, though it has been a recurring battle to keep it open.

Ya the libertypod.org thing still makes me feel sick, mostly because I don't like letting people down. I have decided not to resurrect either libertypod.org or libertypod.com as a pod/node/hub because if anyone uses the same names that were used before, diaspora communication will fail for anyone that's connected previously. Libertypod.com now redirects to friendica.libertypod.com which is fine. I suppose Hubzilla Pro could be installed on either of those domains since Zot is the only supported protocol and there's no diaspora plugin compatibility in pro.

You know, if Hubzilla's Zot protocol were to catch on, most of the issues in this article would be solved.

Seth, I would never blame you or similar for not running libertypod.org or .com no more, how could I; it is more a nostalgic feeling as there, with you, I not only began my D* adventures but also met Nina Lynn. I know that she feels the same about libertypod.org... take that as a wonderful true compliment! And, I understand your arguments, at least a little bit. It is just good to see you! :)
