(#hhv64pa) I don’t know I tried to read most of the article but in my opinion I think what you were saying in our meeting today is probably the better approach here. Interoperability by making more things more open and accessible between platforms rather than simply an export import thing

(#hhv64pa) Hmmm 🤔

As my colleague Makena Kelly explains, the ACCESS Act applies to “large communications platforms” with 100 million monthly users that generate income from collecting, processing, or sharing user data. That would cover Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and most other well-known social networks.

In my opinion profiting off user generated data and user behavior should be banned and made to be illegal.

@vain (#fboog7q) Not sure ! I was working for Facebook at ths time and too busy trying to be good at my job. so I missed it then 😀 But I would not have been able to build Twtxt and Twt.social anyway back then as it would have violated the terms of my contract 😂

@deadguy (#ojavl2a) Like you I joined Twitter™ many times (and deleted my account); but since building Twtxt.net and Twt.social no more 😀 Twtxt is awesome! Check out what we’re trying to do over at https://jointwt.org/ – We also have a mobile app that speaks to an instance of the jointwt/twtxt backend called Goryon you’ll find in the App Store and Play Store 😎 – But if you prefer the CLI, then keep using any command-line based client like the original twtxt, twet, txtnish, twtxtc…

this is called a John’s Phone i’m not even sure if they make them anymore! 🤔 anyone know of any other phones like this that are basically very simple and do nothing but phone calls and text?

Sooo… It turns out I can make a very quick ‘n dirty “Web Browser” using this nifty webview library 😎 📷 And twtxt.net works beautifully in it 👌 Comes in at a nice ~4MB binary. And ~30 lines of code! 😂

A few days ago I posted about signal being one of the only e2e encrypted messaging apps that I trust and it happens to be convenient for most people to use without being too technically minded. Someone suggested in a reply that there was an alternative based on the same protocol that was also open sauce that used the tor network as a broker. Can anyone remind me of what that was?

@felixp7 (#fo5xm2a) I heart / read that too, but not sure from where… Any chance we can dig it up and do some independent investigation to uncover the truth? Is it even open source?

@felixp7 What do you think about the Brave Web Browser? (I haven’t tried it):

The Brave browser is a fast, private and secure web browser for PC, Mac and mobile. Download now to enjoy a faster ad-free browsing experience that saves …

Hah speaking of cross-platform Web Browsers… Managed to get this to build successfully on my macOS dev machine! 😎 📷 Sadly twtxt.net doesn’t work very well in it though 😢

(#kbibs7q) although to be fair it’s been that many years since I’ve used Linux on the desktop that things may have changed… I’m not sure they are 🤷‍♂️

@felixp7 (#kbibs7q) although I do have to make sure that they run OK on Mac iOS that’s not as my primary desktop operating system these days has canonical the company and a Ubuntu l successfully destroyed the only decent accessibility on Linux for a vision impaired/blind person 😥

@felixp7 (#kbibs7q) Yes! now that we have Goryon finally on both upstairs and a half decent API plus several clients the biggest thing that we need to focus on now and something that I will personally struggle with his marketing, advocacy and expanding the network as these skills skills I don’t really have. on the bright side however there are in fact actually 10 different pods in existence today one of which we don’t actually manage or have anything to do with at all!

@felixp7 (#kbibs7q) yeah I actually like Lynx/ELinks/Links myself,
I only wish it understood some very basic CSS and how to render images. JavaScript in my opinion can just die or swift death 😂

@felixp7 (#kbibs7q) I assume your last statement is a good thing? In order for something to be generally and more openly useful I think it has to have a much wider target audience in my opinion…

@felixp7 (#kbibs7q) well the thing is about Twtxt I think in general it ran out of steam and enthusiasm waned across-the-board years ago back in 2016 only months after it was initially launched. I am however trying to revitalize it once again and get it to a point where it can become more useful to more people not just an inner circle of hackers… whether or not we will actually succeed remains to be seen… But we have a wonderful team behind everything that we have built so far 🤗

@felixp7 (#kbibs7q) so I just finished reading the blog post you linked, and if all of those references are true that is really disgusting Mozilla! The problem I have is that the Gopher and Gemini protocols whilst are of cost simpler they have course have their own sets of problems. Pros/Cons. The real solution IMHO here is for someone to write a decent cross platform web browser that a) doesn’t suck and b) works like the original web browser should have.

@felixp7 (#kbibs7q) why do you think that is? Why do you think these great ideas invented and or reinvented by hackers eventually run out of steam? even this project of mine runs the risk of running out of steam too, but I damn well am sure going to try to keep the level of effort and enthusiasm behind the project!
