Secure Scuttlebutt First Impressions

1 min read

I've been dugg into Secure Scuttlebutt and Dat since a couple of weeks. This peer-to-peer Internet of Humans (and bots) is intriguing. The community is very friendly and the open-source software projects and implementations inspiring. My wish would be that it would be even easier to get friends and family on to Scuttlebutt (or SSB). There are still some technical hurdles to overcome. But I believe the future looks bright!

From Web 1.0 to Web3: How the Internet Grew Over The Years

This is a written version of the talk I gave at WAQ19. Watch the video with English captions on YouTube. Last year, the Web turned 30. Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the Web, used the occasion to declare that he isn’t happy with the direction the Web has taken in recent years.

Reflection of the 36th Chaos Communication Congress

[ Warning: my reflection of magic is, what suspicious internet users call a “Long Read” Also: It is opinionated which could confuse them or which some others may even hate. Only haters MUST read this as a manifesto. ] Feedback is very much appreciated here, especially at fediverse.

Keybase Spacedrop ended

1 min read

I’m happy the space drop is over for me. Lumens should have never been linked to a monetary value like it was done, to avoid hoarding hackers. The whole thing almost ruined Keybase for a lot of people. However the concept of the Stellar network still has huge potential. Keybase was on its way to become a crucial key factor in a more secure, verified Internet, but became out of greedy gold rush motivations, almost malicious. I hope Keybase will still become the connected, secure communication and verification platform it was meant to be.
