Parent article: An introduction to GNUnet
It's hard to be very interested in Yet Another anonymous P2P system without knowing why this one is better. Either better technically, or better in terms of "more likely to be widely adopted". I wish the article had at least mentioned a couple of the alternatives and how GNUnet compares to them (beyond "they're all slow").
I looked at the GNUnet web site, and found links to freenet and TOR, but no discussion of the specific advantages of GNUnet. Not even in the FAQ. I'm left to wonder why they didn't just join up with one of the existing projects. Or, if this one predates them, why it isn't already a market leader.
