Say for example the local network is on unencrypted wifi.
You really want that to be the default?  I could see the default
being a listing of the directories and files with a "share" button
by each one, and if you click "share" it would give you the option
of  "local network - no protection" or "share with world - no protection"
or "share with world - encrypted".

If the primary purpose is for there to be an easy to use box that
protects freedom of speech, then I don't understand why you
think those who publish through it should be easily identified.
But perhaps I misunderstand you or the purpose of freedombox.
