An unexpectedly hard part of #WorkingInPublic - actually putting ideas out there to be challenged. Today's idea: https://talk.fission.codes/t/incremental-verification-and-streams - even if it proves unworkable, grateful to my colleagues @FISSIONcodes and the @IPFS community for the opportunity to contribute.
It’s been a while since some good #pickling content got shared!
On the left, refrigerator pickles with white vinegar and brine. Will take about 3 days to sour.
Right, just brine, will take 7-10 days to ferment, with a fancy Kraut Source fermentation lid.
If you want to join us for the Gathering in Berlin before @ETHBerlin and @dappcon_berlin - please answer these 3 simple questions:
What do we do in a bear market? We build!
Today I'm beyond excited to announce @SongADAO's first new thing!
It's called SongADEX.
@flancian yes I am and it’s already happening.
And: not a browser, an app. eg a desktop RSS reader might be an example, but so is Gemini or SSB.
Not walled if the content is defined and alternate clients can be built, whether content standard and/or transport protocol. SMTP is the classic example for transport.
Ultimately lots of these apps also consume / produce “web” formatted content HTML/CSS/JS/WASM.
@flancian browsers (and browser standards) are mostly at peak stagnation.
Brave is a notable exception. And we have The Browser Company and others trying some new things. So signs of new things happening.
If you can deliver a desktop app and mobile for your (open, standards based) content, do you need “the web”?
A new to me term, “recommendation media” as driven by algorithms, from the article “The End of Social Media” by @mignano
This observation comes as TikTok algos reign supreme, Insta cranks up algos, & even FB deprioritizes friends. https://every.to/p/the-end-of-social-media
Brave has shipped a number of IPFS features and now FIL support in their wallet. And we've got yet more interesting things coming. We've learned a bunch about building a multi-protocol browser... which I should probably write up in a blog post at some point. https://twitter.com/FilFoundation/status/1551670799484043264

At yesterday's @blueyard event, @expede recommended reading this, which I was very surprised many had not heard of: https://www.dreamsongs.com/RiseOfWorseIsBetter.html
If you make software, you should read it.
@cyber_hokie @expede Not trying to break anything.
Trying to continue mine & @expede’s history of open source public goods work, and pool code, research, and governance rather than duplicate.
If many entities are going to use a common standard - maybe everyone give back.
@hudsonjameson @0xhyacinths Yup. This is open source. “Other projects” — like GnosisChain or Polygon — are going to have to put in the time & resources into code, research, and governance first.
Open Source. Community. Decentralized Web.
