My tiny hope for creating a different world, moving past this trade-based bullshit society, is shattered every time I see people talk about web3.0. The idea of integrating trade directly into the web. Humans used to trade sheep for shoes. The labor for clothes or whatever. Later they invented a currency to make more complex trades possible. They then got so restarted they started to trade currency for currency.

And the motherfuckers invented the web, a digital space where things don't really exist. They can be replicated. If I have a photo or a book or whatever in this universe, I can share it with anyone and create endless copies.

And now this motherfuckers think that .... well .... let's make these endlessly replicable things unique and thus scarce. Let's NFT the world!

Bravo Internet Archive for imagining this wonderful world of the abundant internet transformed into a shit hole -…

I mean the internet is already a shit hole. And whoever sells digital stuff is part of the shit hole. That's the hard truth. Yeah this society forces you to sell your digital stuff, but at least admit that. Admit it that this is a retardation of our species.

We will trade likes for photos, digital goods for other digital goods. Endless trading into nothingness. More jobs!!! Yay. We have an abundant world of physical goods already, and no doubt of digital goods. And yet humans still think we have to trade for these. The economy is a religion folks. The biggest on earth.

When is the next rocket launch ? I may sneak in so I get sent into space. This species is retarded no end. #tromlive

@tio fuck that. The idea of an ownership society, where every thought and thing must have an owner, and every exchange related to that thing has a transaction cost, is a disgusting sickness that must end. I often do find it very painful living in this present world. @yogthos

Its sad to see projects like Internet Archive supporting web3.0, trade seems to be so integrated in this system that we can even call it trade2.0 instead, lol 😂 I also would like to sneak into a rocket and leave this shitty place, haha.

But on a positive note, @aral made and its showing that there are saner people here too. I hope people realize the truth and move to a truly decentralized internet without of all the corporate trade BS like Meta
@tio @yogthos

@futureisfoss @aral @tio @yogthos in the case of internet archive, I could see why they would want and need an immutable log of site snapshots past. That one aspect and kind of use I am okay with.


@futureisfoss @aral @tio @yogthos so maybe they can use a backend blockchain itself to archive, but they don't need a web3 for anything....

@futureisfoss @aral @yogthos @tychosoft Yeah I think IPFS and the like can deal with such things. There are ofc all kinds of ways to label unique content inside of a system. But to push for NFTs and to think it is ok for people to keep on trading their digital nonsense or whatever sense, it is wrong. You fail to see the greater and more important influence of all that, that ruins our entire world and ourselves.

@tio @futureisfoss @yogthos @tychosoft Check out the org that makes IPFS… hint, they’re VC-funded.

@aral @tio @futureisfoss @yogthos "...improving the IPFS developer experience and toolset as part of making IPFS and its sibling web3 protocols Filecoin, libp2p, IPLD, and Multiformats a seamless, ubiquitous part of the future web..."

@aral @tio @futureisfoss @yogthos they don't identify people, so who funds this? What VC? What people? Depending on who, I may have a lot more to say on this, too...

@Moon @futureisfoss @tychosoft @yogthos @tio Well here’s what I do know: some folks invested $5M and they want $1B back. So how’s it going to make them that $1B?

@aral @Moon @futureisfoss @yogthos @tio amazon?? ;) Let me ask a different way, do they have people from the eff/cyber-libertarian community like say Cory Doctorow, or Whitfield Diffie heavily involved or promoting it??

Yeah NFTs are the craziest shit ever, I can't believe people are falling for this 🤦‍♂️

I think Meta is the manifestation of it all, a big corporation with the only goal of profit in mind, is promoting NFTs, what could go wrong ? Not to mention its one of the most privacy invasive and addictive platforms ever, there's lot of issues with this......
