@darius I've been trying to think of ways that legislation could force decentralisation, but haven't figured it out. Any ideas?
I was working to move play by email games to XMPP when Gtalk came and went. Anything that can be centralized, will, and at the worst possible moment
I'm a big fan of using Dat to replace the S3 type storage built into most fediverse server software and thinking of ways to use AP and SSB together provides more joy than "open hardware strawberry milkshake cannon," so please hook me up if you find anyone wanting to talk architecture in that space
@yaaps yes! exactly. would love to talk dat as s3 replacement
Here's the first draft of my architecture document:
This would be much easier to build in Node.js (which I hate for purely subjective reasons) and the existence of such a beast would reduce the user-facing requirements of my Lua version
Umm, feed. Blame autocorrect even though i posted that from the web
A Node version of my stack would have access to well maintained libraries for OAuth2 and other ancillary protocols important for interaction with the rest of the fediverse as well as the native libraries for Dat and SSB. If that existed, I'd continue work on YAAPS with more emphasis on backend tooling
And that announcement is *great* news for the Node community. I'm interested in following what they do because package distribution is part of my macro plan
@darius "uncentralizable" is such a powerful and important word. which I assume is why the computer is always putting that bold red squiggle beneath it
@darius holy shit what a blessed post
@darius how is something uncentralisble?
@Transflux something that makes no economic sense to centralize. the example I give is I do a 1 to 3 hour video call with new users on my server
Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.
If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet!
