  1. Excellent blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring
    writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but
    I’m a little lost on everything. Would you suggest
    starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any ideas? Appreciate it!

    The Server Needs To Die To Save The Internet

    That sounds like a very questionable proposition. The article describes a network environment in which storage and computing cycles are taken from network participants, rather than supplied by a “server” company. What do you do when you find out that your own computer is harboring malware? Indeed, with no one watching the hen house, are you likely to ever find out?
