I don't think that system is like what I am suggesting.  
I will have to read more (it does sound cool), but it 
sounds a lot more like freenet.  

I am not just talking about a system to create 
distributed storage (although it would be nice to be 
able to do so with what I am suggesting), but a
mechanism to hide stuff on the normal internet.  

Maybe I just want to send you a URL to an article
but don't want you to know where that article is
hosted so as to not bias you towards its content!

Lastly, just because some other projects achieve 
similar objectives to what tor achieves does not 
mean that tor is useless.  I suspect many of 
these systems will eventually achieve similar 
results coming from different angles.  I see that 
as a good thing, not a bad thing, especially 
since it is hard to know what is the best 
implementation before hand.  I hardly think that 
anyone would complain if tor could magically 
replace all those other systems without 
compromising it's stated objectives, do you?  
Surely, it would be nice to not have to install 
another system to deal with one slightly 
different use case.
