I want an ad-hoc, social media solution that doesn't depend on any one company to provide stability and functionality. I want a peer-to-peer social media network. Seriously — why doesn't somebody develop a service that is independent of "mothership" servers to be relied upon as mission critical for the whole system? I hear plenty of complaints about current social networking sites, and I agree with them — screw the billionaire CEOs of these companies like Facebook and Twitter. We need an alternative. I don't care if I have to see advertisements, or donate a few bucks a month. I want a service that can protect me if my government decides to pull the plug (that is, send cops to shut down my local ISP) on my internet. I want a service that can provide adhoc functionality in case of a government power trip.
I want a social networking service that will be immune to pressure from my government. Is this feasible?"
