What he does is run a file locker, it is as simple as that. For a thousand USD and people to spread the news anyone could out do Kim Dotcom and the pirate bay. To do this is simple. Onion routing, distributed search, and a simple file listing. All of it available on GitHub or Sourceforge.
Here is one for you. Create a chrome app for Gmail that encrypts your email and do it as open source. Nothing in the world can be done at that point. Back door gets put in ... branch, rinse, lather, repeat.
If Google uses chrome to grab your private keys, spy on your emails as you write them, or puts in hooks to insert code on your machine, end of all trust in one very large publicly traded company.
Re: Re: Weenies both sides: promoting and worry over TOY gun.
Pretty much everything when it first comes out is prone to breakdowns. What you have is a first generation 3D printed gun. The technology and materials used will get better over the next few years. When it does the guns produced will rival commercially available weapons.
What I find amusing is, you can disguise a 3D printed gun any way you want. You just need to put filler around all the parts, in any shape you want. It will turn the TSA's security theater into a comedy.
