So we are beginning to see the fall of Facebook... it's going to be a slow moving disaster, but the foundation is crumbling, and this baby is coming down...
Now we need to address copyright.
When I started playing around with the idea of a radio station last week, I thought CC artists, because I can't afford a licsense... now I am faced with how many high quality artist are in CC licensing frameworks...
hackers.town:2600 is going to stand for the future that was lost.
As in all things we are going to restore the future. In this case, this means supporting only artists that release content in CC as they are taking risks and have skin in the game of bringing about the future we were once promised... with their art and their work.
You have my respect and dedication.
linkfriend's goal is to support distribution of link lists over p2p protocols like Dat, but so far that has been too labor-intensive for me to tackle. once you can distribute link lists and index them, you will be able to use the search feature like a kind of mini-search engine for your corner of the web. i hope someday to deliver that possibility :)
check the readme for more on of linkfriend's roadmap:
i made a bookmarking app a while ago but today i gave it some polish. it's called "linkfriend"
it stores data in your browser rather than on a central server, so no one is ever privy to it but you. plus, it indexes bookmarks by associated tags so you can search them easily. let me know how you like it :)
My #SadMechJam game, 'Lovers in Freefall', exists now.
Hold your lover's hand, ride into the black, take your Messer with you, and don't look back.
thoughts on dat tooling, shortcomings
the tooling to make info shared over dat particularly secure (rather than merely obscure) largely doesn’t exist. cabal (a chat app) could use rotating shared keys to encrypt chat logs, but instead it’s all stored in plaintext. fritter (a social media app) could rotate archives to support federated deletes, but instead deletes are always soft. i hope to see this kind of tooling appear in the future 🤞

#FediBooks can now verify instances, making sure that they're not just random words or non-fedi websites! it's able to identify every majorish instance server out there, except for GNU social, which has been abandoned for nearly half a decade (but i'm still considering supporting it!)
