The is a uuspoken #geekproblem that we need to talk about. If you see #p2p as human2human or data2data in the first scaling issues are inherently a good virtue. The second you would be right scaling is an issue, but the thinking is anti human and is the one pushed by our #dotcons we are all a part of thus a problem that we dont acturly wont to solve in #openweb projects. Talk to a geek today about this.
"Philosophers have hitherto only interpreted the world in various ways; the point is to change it" Marx
http://Scuttlebutt.nz is an interesting project, I use it, but it is not and likely never will be good for outreach beyond #geekproblem it's on the edge of "changing it" vs "philosophers" balance of the marx quote. Lets see how it flowers.
Hundreds of alt tech projects wither at the vine, a very few flower. Thinking about this, a pretty universally accepted way of judging what might flower and what will wither, the #4opens other people call it open source development etc. Problem terms #geekproblem a teenage mix of arrogance and ignorance that is universal and #dotcons a self interested pushing of greed over human need. Basic stuff that it's good to have an opinion on, definitely be a bad thing not to have an opinion on ;)
Its interesting that very little has changed, this is my blog from 10 years ago https://web.archive.org/web/20070617230552/http://hamishcampbell.com:80/
Currently exactly the projects I was talking about then are being #rebooted and am trying to use them as I did then. Will we have the same issues and problems?
