you're god damn right i'm mad enough to flood your timeline about cloudflare over a 15 minute outage, i am very tired of the many ways that capitalism has hijacked a communications network that stands as one of the most impressive technological human accomplishments and fucking ruined it for profit

1995: "The internet sees censorship as damage, and routes around it."

2020: "One shitty company had a bad day, now nothing on the internet works."

Ah, progress.



We (generic 'we' here) are literally re-centralizing the internet, going back to the Mainframe + thin clients model that started everything.

and diversity of services is more needed than ever... all the way to DNS (hello )

Beaker Browser and ZeroNet is among the many projects helping to decentralize the web. You can create your own website and freely share it easily.

@StampedingLonghorn wow, didn't know about the Beaker Browser! It sounds like an amazing project, gonna download it asap!

It sounds even better than , since you have the ability to build web pages from the barebones right from the browser instead of cloning and modding prebuilt stuff.
