I get so much satisfaction from designing, managing servers and developing tools for my project.
Everyday, I feel like I get a bit closer to this wonderful solution where we completely control our media end to end.
It's hard as fuck and sometimes I get really frustrated, but it has been the most worthwhile project I've ever taken.
I've never been so sure about a particular project. I love working on this shit every day.
I can't stop thinking about what it would be like to talk about whatever on blogs we control that connect to federated video platforms where we premiere original content that's been funded completely by our own communities.
Imagine posting a thought in one place and it just cascades through the entire platform for interested people to see with no interference from algorithms or whatever the fuck trying to maximize profits.
That thought just gets me excited.
I find myself often getting frustrated with the web because it can be so much more. I get tired of negotiating with the limit of what people think the web could be.
But we're in a weird time now. Where access and opportunity finding each other more and more.
Of course that means a lot of shit is getting made, but that's just a part of it.
It feels like a fundamental shift on how we use the web is happening.
And I'm chest deep in that shit. I love it here.
@starbreaker I think that's a great idea.
https://curlie.org but federated would be way better than tech bro spybot Web crawlers from Mountain View. A big distributed and replicated index curated by real people around the world with interests in the subject matter is better than a centrally controlled surveillance driven algorithmic monster machine!
Yes! Music videos!
@Are0h You're totally doin' the Lord's work, bro. Im rooting for ya!
@somarasu We're definitely going to get there, my man.
I'm not exactly sure how, but there is entirely too much cool shit happening to not try.
We're gonna make this got damn thing do what it do.
@Are0h for truly hardcore results, we need decentralised DNS so ICANN doesn't have control of TLDs anymore.
Social is the primary social media platform for the forth coming fourth version of Play Vicious, a new initiative built to bring attention to the plethora of creative acts that don't get the shine they deserve.
