Aaron Swartzs are often times killed or driven to the grave by their governments, because they feel protected by their good intentions, they were raised with the belief "you do not attack good intentions", but do not understand that many people who seek government jobs are raised more with the ideal "you do not attack power".

TSB survives, either because he or she is smart enough to anticipate the possible threats generated by bureaucrats, or because he/she is acting on their behalf.

The best that Namecoin can hope to offer, in my opinion, is the same protection from physical harm to Aaron Swartz, and others who mistakenly trust the bureaucrats, as it offers to more savvy players like TSB. If those two were on equal footing, if both Aaron Swartz nd TSB had equal surviveability in our environment, there would be possible a public examination of the motives of each, and much to be learned by that. Instead the mass of people are forced to timidly avoid death by not violating empty rules. 

Yes -- it's definitely not an ideal situation when only unusually sophisticated actors like TSB can use Namecoin safely in high-risk situations.  Our public position has always been that Namecoin isn't anonymous and that people who need anonymity shouldn't use Namecoin until Namecoin's anonymity issues are fixed.  Of course, the reality is more complicated; highly skilled users like TSB may very well be capable of using Namecoin anonymously.  But if we say that too loudly, it would probably encourage the misconception that average users can use Namecoin anonymously, which would probably lead to whistleblowers getting arrested (or worse).

So while it's certainly interesting to see that TSB is (apparently) successfully using Namecoin, that doesn't negate the problem you cite: right now, the more savvy players have a substantially better position, and we need to make the playing field a lot more level.  Part of the NLnet funding will be used to improve anonymity, but anonymity isn't the primary focus of the NLnet funding, and there's a lot that needs to be done in this department.

There is only 30 btc on the buy side at Poloniex, ... 

This is the second altcoin, after bitcoin, the first to provide an extremely important innovation. So far there have not really been any new coins that have a better purpose.

Why is there so little interest in a coin like this?

I'm not sure how most of it works but could NMC be used as a simple address tool for Lightning Network transactions?

From the looks of things you have to enter a long string to connect to a channel. Would be easier to connect to xyz.bit

Yep. Namecoin is ideally suited for storing long strings and linking them to human-readable names and a namecoin address (sharing same priv/pub keys with bitcoin).

Technical analysis for Namecoin looks very bad https://twitter.com/jindmahi06/status/890263073357004803
Now that Btc-e is gone times ahead will be even more difficult for this coin. I see no development and marketing. Is this coin still alive?

In the future: probably, assuming that Bitcoin does.  I'm a huge fan of SegWit, so I'd definitely like to get it activated on Namecoin.

In the near future: not before AAA.

Right, because I guess releasing Tor naming support isn't development and speaking at ICANN58 isn't marketing...?  /s

You could probably use Namecoin for something like this, but as my familiarity with Lightning is somewhat lacking right now (need to catch up on that topic...) it's possible that there would be issues that I'm unaware of.  How often do new Lightning addresses get created?  Is reuse of Lightning addresses a problem like reuse of P2PKH/P2SH addresses is?

https://www.namecoin.org/docs/faq/#how-does-namecoin-compare-to-blockstack

Note that that FAQ section is pending an update, but it's mostly still accurate.

Blockstack isn't an Internet system, it's a naming system.  Blockstack seems to be betting that the general public is too uninformed to figure out that their claims of being "an Internet" are bullshit.  Which, to be honest, might be a safe bet.

I think price is being artifically held up by a very small buy support of someone dumping at the highest price they can get.If flash crash occurs where large bagholders just dumps for whatever BTC they can accumulate we could see price collapse on poloniex.It is worst I have ever seen it to date after some years apart from price going less than .0001 at one stage but I think it can go much lower and remain there for long term going further down as bitcoin rises in price.
