Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is one of these thinhgs that has been in development for a number of years and will suddenly arrive everywhere. The IPFS - InterPlanetary File System - is a distributed network of hash-addressed resources that you store and share with your IPFS application. As Doug Belshaw says, it hasn't been easy up to this point to use IPFS. But this is changing as Cloudflare, a well-known content distributiuon network, has launched an IPFS gateway, "an easy way to access content from the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) that doesn’t require installing and running any special software on your computer."
