OpenNIC: the unsung hero of the future?

So I’m ashamed to say that I’ve basically been ignorant of the fact that there’s been an alternate democratic/open/post-Capitalist domain name system operating since 2000. It’s called OpenNIC ( and – with a bit of design love and creative marketing – I don’t see why we couldn't get widespread support for it. It would be a huge step forward for decentralisation/individual sovereignty.

@aral i've used foolDNS for a while now as well as my own pihole forwarding to stable DNS' but this looks quite promising. Interesting that they even have their own TLD.
