I sometimes like to idly dream up alternatives to the current social media landscape, with its surveillance/advertising and centralized control. The first obstacle I see in alternative systems that are more p2p is spam. Usenet faced that crisis first - any insights or thoughts about how communities/technologies can be built that would be resistant to spam without some kind of centralized control?

Interesting bit of history, thanks. Nice to see that old FreeBSD badge at the bottom of the page :-)
