On today's #DataPrivacyDay I would like to remind everyone that decentralized is better than centralized for #privacy, but distributed is better still.

Of course, Baran was concerned with redundancy, i.e. with when network nodes are incapacitated.

But distributed networks, especially when coupled with at-rest encryption, also mean that data does not accumulate at centralized locations. It becomes less available for mass surveillance.

This is why a human centric internet must be distributed.
