We need decentralized, censorship resistent alternatives youtube, twitter, facebook, reddit etc. AND WE NEED IT NOW

@sambiohazard @AlexAnarcho Mine's not exactly decentralized, just a free-speech Reddit-like site. :)

@duudl3 @AlexAnarcho yeah but nonetheless an alternative and with ethos/focus on minimal censorship. Alternatives are more important than opposition. Opposition leads to nowhere/rants/virtue signalling w/o an alternative.
Thanks for working on one. 🙌

@sambiohazard @duudl3 the problem with censorship resistance for me is always CP. Like... Are we able to censor that? If so, anything can be censored. If not, then there is CP...

Anybody have a solution to the dilemma?

@AlexAnarcho @sambiohazard That's what I've always thought too. I don't deny that my website Darkr is not "censorship resistant", because I forbid CP on it, but I allow pretty much everything else.

I have no idea how to solve that problem though.

@AlexAnarcho you can make the underlining software into many things. there is already facebook and youtube like players made off it - check out the underlying gnu social it came from.

I'm up for an extended discussion, modding venture with anyone else wanting to


"No! I will not do such thing!
I'm responsible to the truth and to you. And to my own consciousness and there is no amount of deplatforming threat that will break that bound. [..] I will not-self-censor!"

@danielfl yes, i love the fact that he doesnt have sponsored. He made me an AnCap. I really value him and his integrity.

Hopefully mastodon will be a succes that shows the way.

@jacob yes! I think the quality of content on here compared to twitter - and a lot of high caliber people hopping on here is nice incentives

@smartbrain yes, love it. but youtube needs a better alternative. dtube is hella slow

@AlexAnarcho there's a lot of buzz around bitchute... though it's not really *that* decentralised...

Maybe we all should re-learn the lost art of IRC file transfer.

@smartbrain in my opinion there needs to be a sweetspot between convenience and censorship resistance.

i am willing to compromise some convenience, but if it is too cumbersome than i wont use it and most others wont either.

@smartbrain @AlexAnarcho What About something like IPFS? the throughput is good for streaming.
