I was pleased with the quality of questions from the audience when I presented this work in person. As I recall some of my answers I realize now I could have said more.
Ward answers questions at the Marriott Hotel in Portland
I spoke often of forking content. One question was how that specifically happens. Since this site has many forked pages I explained how I had forked them. A better answer would have mentioned Many Ways to Fork Content.
I was asked how one might have a private conversation with a select group of individuals. I accepted that this was an important use case, say for use inside an organization. I explained how I used normal firewalls and VPNs and admitted that I wasn't going to work harder than that in the near term. I should have mentioned that others are in fact working hard on Distributed Private Networking.
