I recently clicked a link on Hacker News entitled “There’s a new open source cloud in town. Meet Apache CloudStack”. It was a link to GigaOM **about** Cloudstack.

I’m going to build a site where anybody can contribute links, with the only requirement that it cannot be a link to something “about” what the really interesting stuff is. No editorializing. “Apache Cloudstack” will link to the cloudstack website. A link about a new apple product will link to Apple’s video, or to the product page.

Besides illegal things, what else would be made easier by using anonymous transactions? What can we build?
