I have the day off work today! I have some errands to run but otherwise I'll try to focus on Agora development and writing.

For this purpose I'm setting an intent to stay off Twitter until 10pm today -- except if I finish the Twitter/Agora integration path earlier (looks hard).

@trailmarks @neil as in, for example, should we set up explicit interop/cross referencing or instead write to the same index or db (ipfs?)

@trailmarks @neil that sounds lovely!

Gyuri, do you think Trailmarks and Agora users should interop at the protocol (network) level or at the storage layer?

@flancian I find the discussion of centralised/decentralised/distributed really interesting too.

I do like P2P but I'm not sure how far I go with the extreme 'no servers' view of e.g. Kleiner.

There's a clear benefit from something like anagora or micro.blog, providing a service for others who would not be able to set something up themselves. A server for 50 friends is different from a server for 5 million.

Beaker Browser was cool though.

@vera thank you for your kind words! i passed on the beret though as it looked too militaristic based on people's comments.

I'd rather slay Moloch with kindness

@vera the beret is a no though, two different people told me it looked fash

@vera got a box for cheap and they're great! after degassing anyway. i need to buy more, i got similar ones that weren't as good after this

@vera but aren't NFTs in principle closer to "art" than "expensive art"? I mean, I don't see why they'd have to be expensive. They could be just a convenient platform to develop things that behave like "owned public pointers"?

The goal of anarchism is a society which enables the full and free development of every individual.

Flancia!

@aral @gert haha, of course. but do we want individual nation states running social networks and other internet platforms? and where do I pay taxes for global services?

@gert @aral community leaders agreeing on a recommendation seems like a reasonable way to bootstrap consensus. Then we "only" need a platform to point people to the consensus alternative.

@gert @aral I think crowdfunding would totally be sufficient *if* we solved a critical subset of the underlying coordination problems, e.g. agreed on *the* Twitter/Facebook/Amazon alternative project to fund

@aral @agora essentially I started an Agora as a tool to build a post-capitalist future with a like-minded group

Q. Aral, what alternative would you recommend to this capitalist product that should really be a public tool for the common good?

A. A post-capitalist one that’s a public tool for the common good. There isn’t one? Then maybe we should fund an independent organisation from the public purse and task it with building it.

#technology #commonGood #capitalism #postCapitalism #colonialism #BigTech #SmallTech

@aral completely agree, we've been experimenting with this while we find a better one to support instead. I'd be interested in maintaining an index of organizations with this intent if one doesn't exist yet -- do you know of one?

nice take on the Jewish Sabbath and taking breaks (from social media, technology, more in general devices and situations we can become dependent on)

@ben_r_hoffman has a great article which was one inspiration for this.

What I do is very different on the object level, but the meta points resonate: if you don't have the slack to take a day to do whatever you feel like, things are not okay.
