Well, thread over. I hope you enjoyed this session of "Jay Graber challenges Christine to be less verbose and for the most part Christine fails".
What can I say, I'm an engineer! I like to get into the details. But maybe you learned something! I hope you had fun!
Oops i accidentally split this thread in two, other half is at https://octodon.social/@cwebber/107492636810769669
@cwebber I haven't seen a proof-of-anything blockchain yet that doesn't either use more resources than it's worth, or creates/maintains a weird power structure between participants that will only be net positive for a minority. I've looked, argued about it, and so far, nobody has managed to show me something working.
I'm all for the git-as-blockchain kinds of systems where that doesn't exist, but that's not what people call blockchain. So I'd rather stay away from the term.
@jens yeah I talked about that over on the birdsite https://twitter.com/toba/status/1473752997083627520
the distinction between the convergence to cosntitute a single distributed machine and the communication among distinct machines (distributed or not) is, to me, something new
it's enlightening and insightful
I still don't understand the PoW/PoS thing and the Catp thing
But at least now I have a geography of the continent, if you allow me this analogy
everything attempted to read previously was, frankly, too abstract, rethorical and lenghty
so this is a substantil progress, a fundamental bit
I think this should be consoldated in a blog post somewhere
