The task is urgent: the Myth of Free is not benign. It has misled courts into granting protected legal status to Free-product suppliers in cases ranging from contract disputes to antitrust and privacy litigation. It has also motivated policy proposals that call for eliminating market interventions—or competitive markets themselves—without adequate justification in either case. Moreover, policies designed for a post-scarcity world necessarily overlook the persistent problems attendant to scarcity, thereby creating substantial allocative inefficiencies. This Article seeks to dispel the Myth of Free before it can wreak further harm to societal welfare and the rule of law.
The Lead Developer of the Swarm team, Viktor Trón, has announced the immediate release and deployment to the public testnet of Ethereum’s Swarm client v0.3, which represents the third proof-of-concept (POC3) installment of this tool.

Phi Beta Iota: John McAfee is not just a technology wizard, he is also a philosopher. His comments in history — on using blockchain to create a world in which lies are eradicated and truth is a common currency — are epic. His comments of replacing all the elements of #GoogleGestapo are also epic.
With a few clicks, I learned that about 500 advertisers — many that I had never heard of, like Bad Dad, a motorcycle parts store, and Space Jesus, an electronica band — had my contact information, which could include my email address, phone number and full name. Facebook also had my entire phone book, including the number to ring my apartment buzzer.
Phi Beta Iota: Scalise asked the right question. Zuckerberg appears to have lied with knowledge of falsity and malice toward Congress and the public.

Internet 3.0 is coming. It does not include Facebook.
The world is rising up against #GoogleGestapo. Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are the early targets for replacement but Amazon, Google, MeetUp, and Wikipedia are all on the priority target list.
See below for graphic and rationale. Not the whole solution but worthy.
