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.

@Are0h Why not host our videos on our blogs? Is storage the problem, or is it bandwidth?
@Are0h @starbreaker

I think the main value of video hubs like peertube is content discovery.

the open web is a wonderful thing but discovery kinda sucks. even the semantic web people didn't really have a good answer except for providing search engines with better metadata.

maybe what we need is a video hubs where you just supply the URL to where you uploaded the video. then you retain control of your data but still have the discovery friendliness of these video hubs.

@jalcine @kaniini @starbreaker and isn't indie web specifically trying to address discovery?

@Are0h @starbreaker @jalcine

in some ways, but a lot of that is still broken semantic web tech.

we need to bring back stuff like web rings and curated lists of links.

stuff that works.
@Are0h @starbreaker @jalcine

yes, like that. that indieweb is championing bringing back the webring is something I really like.

I'm also excited about prismo as a discovery tool.

@kaniini @jalcine @starbreaker Agreed. I'm a big fan of what they are doing as well.

Eventually, I'm going to fold what they're doing in my project.

@kaniini @Are0h @jalcine @starbreaker

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!
