Paul Frazee (SSB, Beaker) is introducing yet again his new project, Atek "a home cloud that uses peer-to-peer tech to connect you to anyone"
@yhancik so it promote p2p tech on centralised add platform without passing through actual p2p networks ...
I would think it's "just another scam" of someone that has not an cm of notion of progressive culture change and no idea of where the general public is in relation to the subject (i.e. : nowhere) ...
pfff ... :/
not buying this kind of nerd paladin knight stuff anymore, it's just distracting from real ground work (i.ex. education on the basis)
@liaizon so on his own super elitist (pardon the word) platform that "noone" uses
do you understand the distance from that from the "usual group/person trying to use it's dumbphone to contact his·her family/friends/sportclub"?
he might be "well-intentioned" (it's why I call it a "white paladin") but it's also so in it's ivory tower of good intends it's actually doing bad/dumb/stupidifying effect on the common people > think "decentralized internet" is some kind of curious wizardry
I'm absolutely averse to tech solutionism as well, and whenever I share with a wider audience (wider than our Masto niche here) my interest, curiosity or even excitation for these wonky experiments, I always take the precaution of saying that I don't see any "solution" or "the future" in it.
So if my stance wasn't clear enough yet, through the years, I hope it is now.
@yhancik funny you feel compelled to justify, as it's the initial intend/posture I criticize ... but it comes out well to precise things ...and yes indeed there are people with wide exposure that pretend dat/gemini/etc is/could be the future of the internetz and it's disheartening
_please_ don't lecture me on decentralization
just think on why this guy need a centralized ad network to talk about his work, and don't offer any decentralized option to follow it's thinking ?
