Or cheap labor from $thirdworld? Crowdsourcing? For that matter,
funding from special interests for a dedicated natural language
team would probably not be too hard to find if their ROI for input
to later analysis was good.

I see no problem with running cool projects even exclusively
within darknets. Announcements/links will find their way out to
clearnet. Those who wish to join or read will do so and be
exposed to learning and running some new privacy/crypto tech
needed to get to it as a byproduct. It's a win. More people
should do it for their related projects. And so long as the
darknets can be made to scale, in general.
