    1. For me, personally, empathy does not come from responding to a situation en masse, and trusting strangers, but from getting close to people different from myself online, getting to know them enough that I can (however partially) see a different worldview, and then also trust what they say in a 140-character tweet and can engage with them deeply, through layers of context.

    1. "connected copies" - multiple copies of pages and other files stored across the Web, accessed by name rather than just a single address.

      Some examples already exist: git, torrents, federated wiki, various named data networking projects, and the Interplanetary File System.

      Distributed copies fight link rot and reduce Internet traffic congestion. More importantly, if the files are freely licensed, easy to copy, and easy to edit, the concept reaches toward the full peer-to-peer potential of the Web.

Building your own truly fast router isn't that hard to get the hang of. And if you're clamoring for a roadmap, in fact, we'll outline the process all the way from "here is a regular computer" to "here is a router, and here's how you configure it" soon.

      Putting together a custom home Internet router.

      Maybe annotation could put "tweet" sized things into context and thereby avoid the "argument machine."
