freenet:// handled by Opera, Firebird etc. If Freenet isn't installed, a redirection to http://freenet.sf.net where the download links are more prominently displayed. There _has_ to be a question when installing asking the user if he/she pays for bandwidth (esp outgoing) and set the configuration in Freenet accordingly - bad press resulting from Joe Doe installing Freenet and getting $1000 bills (think NZ, OZ) isn't good. More "advertising". Atm Diebold are shutting down sites hosting their memos using the DMCA. Educate the world to the fact that Freenet can be used for the "public good" - the memos are already available in Freenet. Better portals. People _don't_ want links to child pornography (no, I don't want a discussion, flamefest etc, I'm talking the general public who want to USE Freenet) to be the first thing they see. Instead the top portal should contain links like the Diebold one, the Scientology Bible etc. Advertise the fact that Freedom of Speach is the central issue. I just wrote a comment to an article in Sweden's largest IT-newssite where I brought this up (regarding the Swedish military wanting to tap regular users' Internet-connections). This is where we need to push Freenet.
