        Yep… Speaking of dark forests…

        Interestingly, the tilde verse, I believe would count as one too.

          Good call. Didn’t think of that. Here’s an archive:

          Medium is such a terrible little walled garden of its own now…

            There is an interesting parallel to this in the way many people disengage from participation in the democratic process. It is called the Death Spiral of Democracy (* link below). People become disillusioned with the over-representation of special interest groups in politics, so they disengage from involvement. Reduced participation in the democratic process leaves more room for special interest groups to push their agendas. This further feeds voter disillusionment and the cycle drags government further from the democratic ideal.

            Nice link, dozens!

                Unfortunately, this article requires a Medium subscription to read. Or at the very least, will cost one of the 3 freebies users get each month (if they have not all been used up already).

                  It is kinda sad, but I think a lot of that was due to price. You’re targeting tinkerers who play with scrap and make things? A $15/issue magazine is probably not the best way.

                    Shame that Make is gone, but awesome that the issues have been made freely available.

                          No tilde sites yet?!?!?! :)

                          1. 1

                            I’m going to likely do the same for Thunix. I’d recommend all tildeverse members do the same, tbh.

                              I may… ahem borrow some code :P

                                Indeed. I had posted this previously, very interesting article in the subject: Earthquakes in the Sky

                                1. 1

                                  Interesting…

                                  Seems the disruption started a bit before the earthquake. This could be game changing for detection efforts.

                                    this is my take on the php-based parsedown wiki

                                    1. 1

                                      This writeup had a reply that hit me:

                                      BBSes did this all the time, via UUCP and QWK packets. This sounds like a great way to implement it, seeing as UUCP is designed just for this type of not-always-on connection.

                                      Nothing says you cannot UUCP from a USB drive.

                                          I love SSB and it’s community! I hang on Patchwork more than irc :D (and I’ll continue doing so).

                                          What it comes down to is that I want to build on top of it and have struggled separating the spec from the implemented tangle of plugins and nodejs. I’m personally hoping that Pigeon will make it easier to build decentralized sneakernet apps that can later sync perhaps with SSB in the near future.
