*A side benefit to the emergence of a strong Edge Network of devices is that more user data can be controlled by individual users, rather than massive centralized data silos. This is a growing demand from users, and a reaction against the user data gathering and monetization of the largest tech companies.
*When each device can act as an independent node in the Edge Network, whether it’s a phone, TV, or other device, it can provide only the information it chooses to when participating.
*Script is just a protocol for interaction between devices — there’s no User Agreement to sign allowing all of your personal identifying information to be shared with the highest bidder.
*The Edge Network means more of your data stays on your device, making it safer for user data, harder to attack and less vulnerable to single points of failure.
