Re: [PLUG]

Actually, no. It would seem that, unlike GNUnet which seeks to
establish a completely new storage network over the Internet, this
project is working toward uniting all the stuff that people already
own but it scattered across different websites.

GNUnet has nothing to do with major, pre-existing social networking
and user-generated content websites like Facebook, YouTube and others.

Chatting with some of the guys online, they do make the point that
it's kind of silly for a person to have so much trouble sharing their
videos with friends simply. Same with photos, music and whatever else.
It's a neat concept but it sounds a mite ambitious. We'll see how it
