"a blockchain would be perfect for this" is reliably a false statement


sometimes it feels like bignames are looking for the roomba of decentralization: it just wanders around, decentralizing stuff, while you continue shitposting. so instead of organizing the labor to support decentralized infrastructure, bignames talk big about decentralization and then link to their twitter

"blockchain" they declare, unaware of how they have come to fetishize low-level database theory


#include decentralize_it.io

*brushes hands* "Well, my work here is done."

@garbados None of the fetishists get temporal 6NF so we're comfortable with that.

@garbados Exactly. Bignames can't do decentralization because their bigness depends on centralized broadcast systems. Decentralize and their notoriety vanishes.
