Back to the Future:

The #Decentralized #Web

The Web is a key space for civic debate and the current battleground for protecting freedom of expression. However, since its development, the Web has steadily evolved into an ecosystem of large, corporate-controlled mega-platforms which intermediate speech online. In many ways this has been a positive development; these platforms improved usability and enabled billions of people to publish and discover content without having to become experts on the Web’s intricate protocols.

But in other ways this development is alarming. Just a few large platforms drive most traffic to online news sources in the U.S., and thus have enormous influence over what sources of information the public consumes on a daily basis. The existence of these consolidated points of control is troubling for many reasons. A small number of stakeholders end up having outsized influence over the content the public can create and consume. This leads to problems ranging from censorship at the behest of national governments to more subtle, perhaps even unintentional, bias in the curation of content users see based on opaque, unaudited curation algorithms. The platforms that host our networked public sphere and inform us about the world are unelected, unaccountable, and often impossible to audit or oversee.

Someone on here must know... If I set up a #cjdns / #Hyperboria #meshlocal, I know it connects to other meshlocals via clearnet, but does it allow clients connected to the meshlocal to reach clearnet sites?

iWant... CLI based decentralized peer to peer file sharing... A commandline tool for searching and downloading files in LAN network,without any central server... Decentralized : There is no central server hosting files. Therefore, no central point of failure Easy discovery of files: As easy as searching for something in Google. File download from multiple peers: If the seeder fails/leaves the group, leecher will continue to download from another seeder in the network Directory download: Supports downloading directories Resume download: Resume download from where you left off. Consistent data: Any changes(modification, deletion, addition) made to files inside the shared folder will be instantly reflected in the network Cross Platform: Works in Linux/Windows/Mac. More testing needs to be done in Mac
