If the short term goal is to rebuild the web on decentralized apps and stuff, what’s next?
once peertube and pixelfed and all of these platforms become stable and feature rich enough for everyday use, how do we teach literacy to people who aren’t nerds
Open source's nature is to fade into the background and go unnoticed except by those whose work touches it directly. It is the plankton of computing. We all breathe, but few of us stop to think about where the oxygen is coming from.

I've written a lot, in other places about how the modern web is a trashfire. I'm not going to re-hash all those ideas here, but I'll sum up:
- Massive downloads for no reason
- Arbitrary code execution
- Tracking you constantly (advertising)
- Increasingly silo'd
- Tracking you constantly (NSA Panopticon)
- Bad Laws (we'll discuss this at length.)
- EME/DRM in browsers
We've announced The Away Team: Lost Exodus, a big update that I've been working on for some time.
Sometimes it's hard to see the impact of the changes we've made while working on them, but when I stop and step back to look, I think the game is much stronger for it!
Super excited to share all this with players when it's ready :)
What I appreciate about being #onhere is that ppl are actually abt putting out content that is meant to be engaged with, bc ppl here actually engage.
Birdland is a haven for ppl putting out (often terrible) hot takes in order for their content to be mined, or to go viral bc they think that will get them some sort of access and the ever so coveted 'clout'.
That being said, I think rules of engagement that have been created over the last few years, apply here too.
