    They have a StartCom SSL cert on ipfs.io.

      I was really hoping you were joking. But no.

        Be careful who you get your advice on juking nation-state adversaries from.

      I find the word “uncensorable” is used far to often. This definitely avoids censorship and makes it harder, but there’s many more means to censor then blocking IPs.

        SSL issues and wordsmithing aside, IMO it’s exactly this kind of effort that will help IPFS cross the adoption chasm from ‘great idea’ to ‘widely used’.

          I was kind of interested in running an IPFS Wikipedia mirror. I got through the install and 10GB download. But then the instructions said “now tell people the URL of your server”. But I don’t know anyone who wants this – that’s the point, to “help society”. I kind of assumed this would be like running a Tor node where some kind of discovery protocol would send traffic to my mirror. Did I miss something?

            You only need to tell people the URL of your server if you want to provide a public gateway. By mirroring the content and pinning it your node will distribute the content automatically to people who request it within the IPFS network, or via other public proxies.
