In-reply-to » There is the web3 and Web 3.0 (as a successor for Web 2.0), one more oriented to distributed and federated content, another with everything on top of a currency, so every stored bit costs some gas.

What I think about those technologies is that version 1.0 is extremely inefficient (energy consumption, niche market), have horrible UX (like slow transactions, having to centralize the transactions to make them easier to use) and requires some early adopters willing to ignore the defects of the current solution.

So it’s a double edged sword to me. Yeah, changing the status quo, and using cool technology is appealing to scientists (AI/magical algorithms, is that you?), but the problems it actually creates are worth considering. It reminds me of a quote from Jurassic Park.

Maybe Web3.5 will fix some, maybe everything will disappear. Who knows?

@prologic@twtxt.net Well, it should be decentralized, like in every computer having a copy of the whole blockchain (400 GB for Bitcoin up to 2022). Since that’s not feasible, now everything is semi-decentralized or fully centralized, and perhaps is not been distributed, if you consume the blockchain on the same APIs… ¯_(ツ)_/¯

So I agree with you.

In-reply-to » Keep the Web Free, Say No to Web3

I won’t say it’s important to kill them. How are we going to do it?

I think it’s going to implode itself since it doesn’t have the benefits of a Hobbie, with people sustaining the infrastructure for the sake of it. Nor the self-sustainability of a commercial net, where the profits are higher than the cost of operating them.

In-reply-to » Keep the Web Free, Say No to Web3

There is the web3 and Web 3.0 (as a successor for Web 2.0), one more oriented to distributed and federated content, another with everything on top of a currency, so every stored bit costs some gas.

And although I don’t dislike the good parts of cryptocurrency, being the cryptography behind it and the potential of decentralized power behind it, I’m not too fond of the interests it brings. Since it’s designed from the core for monetary value, it attracts people aiming for the best Return on investment not caring for the environment (there is a debate about green energies by 2022).

I know that a Hobbyist net, an Indieweb, and a Hyper profitable net are going to be different between them, their core values are different, and there is a space for all of them. I don’t think Web3 is going to be self-sustainable since there is no balance between losers and winners.

In-reply-to » reflection:

@mutefall@twtxt.net Stupid Moore’s and Koomey’s laws. It’s incredible to me how we have exponentially more computing power, only by waiting.

Also, it’s being invisible to us. We have a lot of magical systems (GPS, WiFi, Cryptography, Cell phones) and now we don’t value that much what’s happening behind the scenes.

For me it’s a matter of adapting to the current reality, and fighting against my nostalgia (everything was better before), but at the same time slowing down the stupid speed of innovation.

In-reply-to » I'm thinking of operating a 'twtxt . es' pod (for content in spanish/español)

@mutefall we could try it 🤔

I want to invite more Spanish-speaking people to Twtxt and kind of separate conversations in another language. I could buy and manage the domain, and if you’d like to share resources would be great. Later if it grows, we might share expanses or something.

I’m thinking of operating a ‘twtxt . es’ pod (for content in spanish/español)

It’s gonna cost something like 100 USD/year (domain + hosting), nothing excessive, but I have some weird feeling about paying on stuff not being used that much. Thoughts?

I have used Windows OS for almost 30 years. I don’t dislike it that much. (And I use Android, iOS, macOS, -buntus, Debian, etc, at the same time)

But this week, I wanted to log in and I couldn’t use my PIN or Fingerprint for unknown reasons, and since I wasn’t using my password I forgot it. Damn, those strange cases where things don’t work as expected.

In-reply-to » After only working 4 day work weeks for the past month and a bit and now going back to 5 days (6 days this week!) is gonna take a bit of a toll. 😂😴

@ullarah@txt.quisquiliae.com the team switched from 5 to 4-day work last month, and it has been kind of strange. But since I’m giving classes on Saturdays, has been refreshing!

How have you felt of the switch?

@prologic@twtxt.net a problem with Twitter is that you ‘cannot’ serve ads based on keyword searches. It could be perhaps by hashtags, people you follow, or similar.
