I dont think fediverse solves anything much. You join a social media server that is part of fediverse. It gets shut down by state or corporate censorship. Everything you posted and all your contacts is lost. But it was part of the fediverse! So what? How did that change anything?

Pleroma already exists, plenty of instances too (poa.st, nobodyhasthe.biz, shitposter.club, freespeechextremist.com, pieville.net, etc., etc.), it just needs marketing.

It's hard to imagine what Jack Dorsey meant by "twitter should be a protocol, not a company", but anything that breaks up the toxic circle-jerk of current social media is more than welcome.

Version 3.0 of The Freedom Cell Network is Coming August 1st! - Freedom Cells are peer to peer groups organizing themselves in a decentralized manner with the collective goal of asserting the sovereignty of group members through peaceful resistance and the creation of alternative institutions. by JasonCarswellDAT Mod in DecentralizeAllThings

[–]JasonCarswellDAT Mod[S] 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

The Freedom Cell Network was founded by The Conscious Resistance folks, including Derrick Broze, John Bush, etc.

https://TheConsciousResistance.com

 

From their newsletter email, yesterday:

Friends,

Derrick Broze here, checking in with a quick update on the NEW Freedom Cell Network website...

On August 1st, 2022, we are launching version 3.0 of The Freedom Cell Network website!

The new website is faster, easier to navigate, and we believe a much needed tool for connecting with your local community.

Before I tell you about the new features for the website, let me tell you how I came to be involved with the Freedom Cell Network.

In March 2015, I visited Brave New Books in Austin, Texas to hear my friend and huge influence, John Bush.

John gave a presentation on "The Central Texas Mutual Aid Society" and something he called Freedom Cells.

I was familiar with the idea of mutual aid, the idea that we can stand together in solidarity with our neighbors and community members, and support each other in times of need.

John discussed the importance of mutual aid and building local, decentralized groups focused on building support networks.

The idea was that these Freedom Cells could grow exponentially and expand around the world to the point that we have the power to effectively opt out of governmental systems and create alternative systems which serve our needs and values.

I know it's radical idea, but I was 100% certain it could work. I took my inspiration and ran back to Houston to begin building my own Freedom Cells.

Around 2016, I worked with some activists to create the first version of a Freedom Cells website. This showed us the possibility for using a social network to encourage local connections.

However, it wasn't until 2019 that the 2nd version of The Freedom Cells website launched. Shortly after Ramiro Romani joined the team and began making regular updates to the site.

Now - thanks to everyone who donated to our crowdfunding campaign during The Greater Reset 3 in January - we are preparing to launch version 3.0 of The Freedom Cell Network!

I promise you, this is the best version of this concept and the platform yet. You will not be disappointed!

So here are some of the new features:

Translations - In order for the FC Network to continue expansion worldwide we need to have a website that reflects the diversity of our community. This means more languages. We are starting with Spanish, German, Portuguese, and Dutch. We will add more over time!

Brand New Design/Feel - We have upgraded the site to a cleaner look and easier navigation! This includes renamed menus and a redesigned profile with new options including "Roles", and "Readiness Level" where you can indicate if you are willing to meet in person or not.

Marketplace - This is one of the features we are most excited about! Users will have the opportunity to list services, products, and even dating ads to find love in the Freedom Cell Network!

Advanced Search on Maps - Not only will you have the ability to search the member and cell maps for people close to you, but now you will be able to search specifically for people who are ready to meet in person, or people looking for land, or selling land!

Timeline - By far, one of the biggest complaints we have heard is that removing the timeline was not helpful. We hear you. So the timeline is coming back for the new site!

There is so much more about this site that we think you are going to love. Please stay tuned to the website on August 1st and check out the new features on your profile!

Thanks for supporting our mission to bring the free hearts and minds of the world together to create a better future for all of us!

- Derrick Broze & The Freedom Cell Network -

 

I would be MUCH happier if their site was FLOSS (free/libre open source software) and decentralized so that everyone could host their own decentralized instances and community resources while sharing databases. All websites are potentially single points of failure, a weakness that is problematic.

 

From their newsletter email, today:

The Great Food Reset is underway…and people are going crazy.

Protesters in Panama have been out in the streets for two weeks straight as the price of food has risen to a point where many can barely afford rice.

German grocery stores have been rationing bread, pasta, and cooking oil for weeks now.

Sri Lankan protesters recently stormed the presidential palace amid severe food shortages.

The government in the Netherlands has instituted climate policies that will result in farms being destroyed and massive amounts of cattle being culled.

And here in the United States…

Food banks are already seeing a flood of new families.

Not to mention the rapidly rising cost of food and fuel.

Plus, extreme droughts in places like Texas and Oklahoma - which produces over a quarter of the nation’s beef - are leaving cows with less food to eat and ranchers being forced to cull more of their herd to stay afloat.

_THEY - the technocrats hoping to force you to eat bugs, give up your property, live in smart cities, and sacrifice your livelihoods (and even your lives) to “save the planet” while THEY ride in jet planes and limos - are very pleased with what’s happening around the world.

THEY think they’ll win.

THEY believe they can starve you into compliance.

But THEY don’t know who they’re dealing with.

See, the world is not running out of food.

There’s more fertile farmland and ways to grow and raise healthy food than ever.

WE have the power to eat and live in abundance. Because the world and our local communities are full of abundance.

THEY cannot starve us if we don’t let them.

Abundance is our birthright but only if we WORK to maintain it.

Today I’m going to share with you one incredible method of food preservation you absolutely must have, both to weather the economic storm we’re in and to simply live a healthier, happier, more fulfilling life.

My good friend Nicole Sauce (Greater Reset speaker!) is going to teach you step-by-step how to pressure-can beef for long-term storage.

That’s right…

Canning isn’t just for vegetables.

Beef can be canned, too.

And when you do it the way Nicole shows you, your canned beef can last for YEARS without worrying about it going bad. On top of that, she’ll show you how to can beef in under two hours.

This method of pressure-canning beef also means the meat stays nutritious and delicious from the moment you put it into the can to the time you open it up and serve it.

Nicole’s beef pressure-canning workshop goes LIVE on Sunday, July 24th at 4 PM CDT.

Sign up for it here:

https://livefree.academy/checkouts/how-to-pressure-can-beef-with-nicole-sauce/?ref=3

Remember, YOU are in control of your own food.

THEY want you to believe that they’ve got you under their thumb. That they’re orchestrating a perfect plan. That the outcome is already decided.

But their control is an illusion meant to disempower you.

By learning skills of survival, such as pressure-canning beef, and practicing these skills along with everything else we teach at the Greater Reset, you can move fully into your power as confident, competent, and commanding leaders of your own future.

THEY do not have as much control over your life as THEY want you to believe THEY do.

YOU have more control over your life than YOU believe you do.

But…

If you don’t TAKE CONTROL of your life…then someone else will.

Pressure-canning beef is a small but mighty step toward self-reliance and sovereignty.

Both because this skill will help you be more prepared than 99% of other folks in this country, and by committing to learning it and using it, your mindset will dramatically shift from one of fear and victimhood to one of faith in yourself and empowerment.

YOU are free, powerful, beautiful human beings.

Act like it!

Join me in learning a life-long skill of survival and food preparedness here:

It's what it is. I was kicked off Odysee and Bitchute is owned by a Zionist, possibly crypto, who cares only about money and works directly with the David Horowitz crowd of alt-right Jews. Gab is the only censorship free program but it obviously is a honeytrap because just look at this damn photo:

https://boards.christogenea.org/filedata/fetch?photoid=78513

^ ^ ^ Torba is a crypto-Jew of Turkish descent and is not a Christian. Don't fall for it.

I have an essay of most of the alt-social medias including more obscure ones such as mewe, owned by a Libertardian Jew, which nobody uses but I've discovered that nearly every one is owned by shady people and their terms of service are ambiguous enough to allow future censorship.

What difference there would be between tablet and phone mode? Both usually use android and touchscreen after all.

Good point. I don't use tablets. I suppose it comes down to big window/tab/monitor and small window. A medium window might be pointless if you can just scale your fonts.

Decentralization is not just a substitute for self-sufficiency, it's also a means to build (non-SJW) diverse communities outside of consumer/control culture, a way to take back power from central "authorities", and a philosophy beyond just independence but a return to the natural order of things.

More than just FLOSS, like you said, everything - including politics, banks, power, etc.

Thanks for the book.

If you're fine with a mod that's online like twice a month then sure, lol.

Yep, that's completely fine. PhpBB doesn't have a feature for automatic subforum creation, but I'm simulating subreddits on it. Anyone can request their own subforum and they're free to be as active or inactive as they like. I just have to make one manually.

I actually thought my post was quite rambly tbh.

Actually I mean that Theramintrees is an outspoken guy.

One is mostly about patent law and how it fucks up the life of everyone, the other is a long af video about why he thinks the concept of "intellectual property" is bullshit, why copyright is bullshit, how they lead to abuse, how monetizing creativity can work without copyright and how it's ALREADY been proven to work (he's talking about crowdfunding). I don't exactly agree with everything he says, I think he misses the point that creators themselves treat their creations like property or children and they themselves want to remain in control of those things, with copyright or not. And also the aspect of respecting the creator by not making derivative works of lesser quality. If you ask me I think copyright has a tiny bit of validity. Of course not in the current form, what we have now is insanely corrupt and works directly against everything the original laws were set up for. But my reply is long enough, that's a topic for another time. Oh, also his 2 videos "you SHOULD pirate anime" are great too. They're like prequels to those later ones, he got most of his ideas and motivation from arguing with anti-piracy copyright bootlickers and proving his points by organizing a massively successful crowdfunds thus completely shitting on the copyright loyalists.

I'll check them out. A lot of bands are benefiting from their work being pirated, and Arctic Monkeys gained their initial following from them giving CDs away for free. I'm not sure it works this way for every medium, though. I'm not sure if copyright is even a matter of being either valid or invalid. I think it's simply a choice based on the values of the people. What's disturbing is how inorganic the specifics of the current system have developed. The duration of copyright was lobbied for so Disney could milk Mickey Mouse, and the MAFIAA exist to protect the interests of the rich and they're coming after people in quite an aggressive way. I agree with you, though: even though I'd rather live in a world without copyright than in this one, I'm still open to there being limited room for copyright laws. It's the same with patents: the current system where you have patent trolls could never have been the intention, but the essential idea behind it isn't a bad one.

This is a good idea, but in my opinion it should happen in a more organized way....

Yeah yeah, there SHOULD be a ton of really neat things, but those things are hard to do, we can't do them, and for some reason no one else seems to be doing them. I stopped thinking in such terms and just started seeing things for how they are and what thing I CAN actually do. It ain't much but it's something and it's at least tangible.

Also we're dealing with something super large and vague, its hard to make a community out of "video sharing". We can multiply in our heads the possibilities for internet communities all we want, or see what good things already exist and supporting and improving those. That's how I see Odysee in this whole picture.

those things about soft transition and not a boycott

think about youtube sync this way: it drains youtube of value. Value is dependent on scarcity, on supply, so when those videos are only on youtube that gives youtube their value. But if they're in 2 places at once you now can choose. Let me illustrate it with 2 examples. I was on Odysee and felt like seeing the anime OP of Girls Last Tour. It wasn't on Odysee, so I went back to youtube. Some months later I was visiting that site again and wanted to see some Elden Ring fight/guide. And I DID found some things so I stayed on Odysee just for a little longer thanks to that. And of course, the videos I saw were youtube mirrors. But they WERE there, and that's what's important.

Odysee-youtube sync takes away the exclusivity from youtube (which directly hurts it) and quickly and conveniently populates Odysee AND decentralizes where those videos can be found.

If we want a shift in consciousness then people like us would have to take on the role of annoying evangelizing spreaders of our ideas.

When I reboot https://rabbithole.wf, I can create a subforum there that's dedicated to this effort, and you can moderate it. Are you interested in that?

If you're fine with a mod that's online like twice a month then sure, lol.

Very well articulated.

I actually thought my post was quite rambly tbh.

And thanks for the channel recommendations. I wonder why they have such similar looking names. I haven't checked out the latter yet, but the former looks solid.

yeah, the more I thought about the more I realized "decentralization" is just a substitute for "independence/self sufficiency". And this has to do with food, water, guns, information, wood, steel, everything.

My favourite book(a theory of power by jeff vail) also comes to mind as its kinda related to those ideas:

For years we've been discussing FOTPACH ethical self-regulating social media management, as well as self-regulating communities, and creating open-source templates (akin to Creative Commons licenses) so that others may easily emulate and users can clearly understand - all starting with being open.

The idea of FOTPATCH ethical management (fair, open, transparent, peaceful, accountable, consistent, honest) was developed through struggles to open magnora7's SaidIt management, and FOTPACH has become a simple concept to apply to any management, such as organizing our Windsor Freedom Rallies or what we want from local election candidates or national governments (good luck with that).

The goals and essence of FOTPACH is manifesting bottom-up self-regulating communities rather than settling for top-down dictates.

Very informative!

TOR also seems sus, originally developed by the US Navy.

Any chance there can be Matrix forks that can uncorrupt the network? I'm guessing really there is nothing under the sun that can't be infiltrated and corrupted if they put their full spectrum dominance energy into it.

Nothing is 100%. I know open-source is vulnerable, but I'd rather deal with that than the privatized technocracy.

Great post!

As a whiny non-coder, IMO most software should have a few fundamentals:

4 levels: plug and play, basic, advanced, expert

3 formats: PC, tablet, phone

2 modes: dark mode, light mode

1 fundamental: be distributed/decentralized

Torrenting, IPFS, Session, etc. are P2P-distributed and don't even need a hub. It's all in the app.

Other P2P-decentralized networks connect together, so instead of a single site (Facebook, Reddit, SaidIt, etc.) you would have dozens or hundred or more instance-sites that all share data. ie. Mastodon, Lemmy, PeerTube, NextCloud, Movim, Yacy, Diaspora, etc. It would be much harder to take down a swarm than a single target.

There needs to be a web interface for it to gain wide traction; that's simply how it is. Even if torrenting became more popular, simply announcing your Patreon or what have is much less effective if you can't put a link in a description or pinned comment below the video. Thus it becomes less attractive to content creators. You can provide a .url or readme file in the torrent, but I don't think many people will click those either.

Yes, Odyssee over Bitchute, not just because of the problems you mentioned, but also because Bitchute practices censorship as well, so that it slowly turns into a limited hangout (although there's plenty good stuff still around). /u/Jesus has documented this censorship. I believe he was negative about Odyssee as well, though. His approach is to point out the identities of the owners, but that correlates with censorship. Take these words with a grain of salt, though, as I'm not that familiar with Odyssee and I could be misremembering what /u/Jesus said about it.

Odyssee provides the option to automatically mirror your youtube channel, so that you only need to upload it there. This is very convenient, but I feel ambiguous about it. It's a soft transition and not a boycott. If everyone has the convenience of just sticking with Youtube while it's possible, then there won't be a shift in consciousness. Odyssee itself may not get the views it otherwise would, and as a result, other content creators on that site won't get as much attention. Asha Logos takes this approach; there's no real need to view his Odyssey because it merely mirrors his Youtube channel. It's understandable, though: these people have a big following, and it's hard to predict what portion would follow them to the alternative platform if they made a complete switch.

This is a good idea, but in my opinion it should happen in a more organized way, with a dedicated website that has a write-up about the motivation for the switch, as well as a community dedicated to Odyssey (and related) content discovery where content creators can announce their switch. But then there should be a considerable number of people on that community. It'd help if the content creators would promote that community; they'd be incentivized to do so if they cared about it because of a shared set of values. That's what ultimately binds and what can help catalyze big changes.

When I reboot https://rabbithole.wf, I can create a subforum there that's dedicated to this effort, and you can moderate it. Are you interested in that?

And thanks for the channel recommendations. I wonder why they have such similar looking names. I haven't checked out the latter yet, but the former looks solid. Very well articulated.

Why only use the internet? by BlueFrost in DecentralizeAllThings

[–]GeorgeCarlin 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Correct, i assume from here on. One "problem" in an ITIL-inspired sense ( Incident <-> Problem <-> Change) most of these systems tend to implement , humans need to interact with:

Most of them only get interconnected if somebody can first create a new market with it, then monopolize it to enslave and en-cage the users he catched. Resistance mostly is then futile because the mono- or oligopoles already are standing firm enough to be quite resilient.

Mostly it is even pointless then to discuss what aspect (metadata, personal data or even their money itself) they try to "steal" (in a sense of "hiding" it in a wall of text) from their slaves with this, but imho this is a really big problem in projecting and "monetizing" "new" ideas. Especially since dark-patterning sheeple has become too fucking easy .

We need a better construct for this problem to solve it in.

It usually is a good idea to strip this construct from possibly "unnecessary" assumptions, because false assumptions about reality tend to bite you in your ass the hardest and for "the longest time" from my experience.

Mastodon by raven9 in DecentralizeAllThings

[–]SoCo 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

(a little long winded, but I'm hopefully other's might find this info helpful too)

The Mastodon server list is here. All the public ones seem to have a "Browse Directory" link. Without joining or signing in, this lets you "explore" the various Mastodon servers. It seems to let you browse their users' public profiles. From their you can click on a user and see their profile and a feed of their public posts. So it's all accessible on the public web.

No, I'm not familiar with Bastion. At a quick glance, there seems to be several things with similar names. A bit different spelling, Bastyon is a social media based on the Pocketcoin blockchain, which seems more like what I expected to find. The Bastion spelling seemed at a glance just to be DeFi lending.

I've tried Friendica and Diaspora a while back. They both are federated Facebook-like social medias. You can host your own "pod" server, or join someone else's, then the servers de-centrally interconnect.

Hive / Steem seemed really promising, I tried each for a couple years. They are a blockchain social media. It is somewhat like more of a blog than Facebook, but with following users, categories, and every upvote is a tip of the cryptocurrency and some people can make good loot posting stuff. Every post/comment requires a small crypto fee, so signing up is a little funky. There are free options, but a couple bucks worth of their coin helps get going faster. There are a ton of website and app interfaces to them, that look very different and change it from being youtube, to blog, to facebook mode in away. The upvote-tip strategy boosts posts (as does buying a boost on your own post), but that seems to push a viral new posts are king feel, that made > week old posts seem dead. Also, large files (images/video) aren't on the chain.

Memo Cash is cool. I've tried it a bit. It's a similar strategy to Hive/Steem, but feels closer to Twitter.

I've briefly tried ScuttleButt, a non-blockchian p2p social media. You are completely alone and you have to manually link of with people, unless you go to a "Pub Server" to meet and connect to people. Seems cool for messaging, but maybe more chat and socializing works out too.

Retroshare is an older heavily encrypted P2P social media. It seems cool for messaging and file sharing, but is has a ton of features like broadcast video, voice chat, e-mail-like message, chat lobby, forum, etc. It's totally a closed darknet and you pretty much have to exchange PGP keys with someone to talk to them.

Yeah twitter is a mess. I dont like it much at all. I didnt join mastodon yet because it appeared to be closed to the rest of the web. I didn't see the web fronts you mentioned or the means to link to posts but I'll have another look at it. I am in the process of trying out Bastion. Did you try Bastion? Its also very decentralised.

Mastodon by raven9 in DecentralizeAllThings

[–]SoCo 6 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Mastodon seems great to me, but it's focus is on Twitter like post feeds. Maybe it's just me, but the Twitter style isn't very conductive to conversation, IMO. Seems many manage to do so though.

I've gave it a try, but not really gotten into it. I started off with the server https://mas.to which seems great to me.

Mastodon is federated, so there are many servers. You pick one to be your home. They each can have their own different rules and are unique communities. Then, each can decide to expand interconnect with other servers; the federation part.

This gives you your local home community and then the federated community, which feels like everyone. You can pop over to the federated tab and find fresh new things to follow for instance. Other decentralized social medias frequently have a similar concept of a closed community, that also has a watering-hole or pub, where you can expand your social network.

Each server provides their own web interface, as do Mastodon apps. Most I've seen provide searching with #hashtag and @user features and usually you can view any users' profile, see their avatar, banner image, bio and set of links, as well as any public posts, comments and media posts.

The server/app's interfaces vary, but they can provide an interface for grabbing the direct link for sharing or not. Also, if the content you try to direct link to is frequently on a whole different Mastodon server and their direct linking and posts' visibility (ie globally public or not) can affect that as well.

Welcoming Rocket.Chat to Matrix by TheRealPanzer in DecentralizeAllThings

[–]Gaydolf_Titler 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Matrix was originally funded by AMDOCS, an Israeli communications company that is implicated in using "intelligence gathered from backdoors in Israeli wiretap systems sold to the U.S government to prevent US intelligence and law enforcement agencies from tracking and stopping suspects behind the 911 terrorist attacks." [1]

Here is the Fox News four part series on Amdocs’ implication in the 911 terrorist attacks.

It is also known that several founding Matrix developers are current or former Amdocs employees, and Amdocs is known to employ many former (or current) Israeli Unit 8200 agents, Israel Defense Force's SIGINT unit.

From Wikipedia on Unit 8200:

Military publications include references to Unit 8200 as the Central Collection Unit of the Intelligence Corps, and it is sometimes referred to as Israeli SIGINT National Unit (ISNU)

I'll never trust the Matrix protocol, it's developers (whom I've had the unpleasant experience of dealing with in the past), and least of all Matt Hodgson. I urge users to read his dialogue with critics scattered around github and various blogs to get a feel for his ideologies and the talking points he uses.

A reminder that bug-bounty hunters can be bought and paid for, so don't be fooled thinking "open source" means safe or secure. But if you feel you can 100% trust Matrix or don't care one way or another, I say go for it - it's a pretty nice communications package that's easy to install and works quite well. Hodgson is a bit of a tool though.

An interesting side note - Matrix is used for secure communications of Germany's national health care system and by Bundeswehr (Germany's armed forces) to pass classified intelligence. That's...convenient.

"Decentralization" is not any specific technology, its a mindset. by Kuasocto in DecentralizeAllThings

[–]SoCo 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Most of them you just sign up and start posting crap. The details do vary, though.

A common (solvable) issue with decentralized P2P is that you only see and talk to people you've expressly connected to. Scuttlebutt falls into this category. Other's act more like a very tiny sever with very very few people, like Mastidon.

This is addressed with the concept of federation. Many tiny servers connect together, bridging into a big ecosystem, like Mastadon's federated section. Other times, P2P systems have a centralized/more-centralized area, where people can similarly meet and connect, like Scuttlebutt's pubs.

Hive/Steemit on the other hand, is a social media system on a blockchain. It costs a fraction of a penny to post/comment. When you upvote someone, they are paid crypto. To make this work out best, you want people to start with a account with a couple bucks in it. You usually buy your account and if you get serious you buy more crypto to boost your account with. Some people can make a good chunk of money posting, apparently not me though. Yet, there are programs to help onboard users for free, usually involving signing up with some affiliate partners. It's an interesting concept, but my biggest complaint is how it incentivizes viral and hype content. If a post is over a week old, the system makes it feel like garbage.

How "decentralized" do you want things to be? For every single person to run his own server?

Yes, that's how P2P decentralization works. It's super easy and doesn't take any skills, just a good software platform. That's pretty much how Mastadon, Scuttlebutt, Hive and tons others work.

How do they work? Do users just sign up and start posting crap like twitter or are there some extra steps? Because I think you might be overestimating the average normie's pc skills.

How does this differ from LBRY?

Excellent point. We should make some alt-platform comparison tables (that would be censored off Wikipedia for "not being notable" enough) when I/we finish setting up Projex.Wiki. WP is NOT the cutting edge of anything.

What are names actually ? Ask this one question.

You only read what i want you to read. It is called compartmentalization and a classic tactic of literally every insurgency.

Even officially CIA-approved. :-D

:)

You chose yours i chose mine. Tactics as well as names.

Carswell... I missed you. Especially your attitute. :)

Kvasir, saiditter for 24 days, I don't know you. What attitute attitude is that?

Fighting bullshit on all lines and accomplishing nothing thereby.

Apparently you know nothing about me.

There's an entire universe of local Windsor, Ontario activity I've been involved with over the last year that I've only hinted at, on SaidIt and it chat, that you are oblivious to.

We've now got a VPS to host more truth-seeking, resistance organizing, media, and other utilities and platforms beyond SaidIt and WikiSpooks, and with respective admins d3rr and Robin we'll co-admin our few-day-old Projex.Wiki which is currently a crude mess needing much work to get it presentable. Time spent on you is time not spent on that, so don't be surprised if I don't respond to idle timesuckage further.

Would Bastyon and/or the Bankor Network be good projects for SaidIt, /s/Cassy, and beyond?

We didn't have computers as we think of them now until mid to late 80s. Late 90s is when the 'WWW' really started becoming a thing. "Cool site of the day" was probably relevant until close to the year 2000.
