Happy to answer this one. I have been slowing plugging away at a blog post to address this very question. I will be publishing that blog post in the coming week or so as I am close to finishing it up and will post it here on this forum post.
The quick and dirty TL;DR is that there was a need for a more representational of what Blockstack has become and where Blockstack is headed as a new decentralized internet community.
I'll elaborate on this in detail more with the blog post. Stay tuned.
