Mind.. struggling... to.. enumerate... security... implications...

Yes, but I am reminded of what people in 1990 would think of "In 20 years, all your software [1] will be randomly downloaded from the internet and run on your computer. That software will store files on your computer, access the low-level language of your graphics card, connect to other computers, and run calculations in the background."

Seems impossibly insecure, right? Yes, it has risks, but we all accept them.

The good news is that people will finally be able to communicate to each other without the intervention of (several) giant megacorps.
