I made this meme because it seems like a lot of developers are missing the point about #p2p. If your peer isn’t connect directly to another peer, it’s not p2p. If you need a server it’s more like p2s2p, which is also known simply as web development.
🧵I’ve been pretty quiet on the #p2p stuff lately. We’ve been heads down. Here’s why.
Buffering packets into the network is great for data that can be eventually consistent.
But with things like video, audio, actually any kind of real-time, you want to stream directly to the other peer. But that doesn’t always work because there is a pretty common case where two peers have incompatible NAT types and they can’t connect directly!
We solved this with peer-proxies.
I am starting a new project that is intended to be designed as a (#p2p) protocol eventually with implementations in multiple languages. I know #Python well, but I have been learning #Rust and think I'll need to write at least some of the perf-sensitive components in Rust. Do I prototype it in Python and then rewrite in Rust later, or try and power through and write it in Rust now?
edit: added hashtags fwiw

In terms of comms, I'd recommend #XMPP - #OMEMO for #Chat (i.e. #Gajim), #Thunderbird (with PGP/MIME encryption) for #eMail, #WebCall for 1:1 securely encrypted calls (#P2P so maybe not ideal)...

Glad to formally release my latest work - Surveillance Graphs: Vulgarity and Cloud Orthodoxy in Linked Data Infrastructures.
A bit of an overview and then I'll get into some of the more specific arguments in a thread:
This piece is in three parts:
First I trace the mutation of the liberatory ambitions of the #SemanticWeb into #KnowledgeGraphs, an underappreciated component in the architecture of #SurveillanceCapitalism. This mutation plays out against the backdrop of the broader platform capture of the web, rendering us as consumer-users of information services rather than empowered people communicating over informational protocols.
I then show how this platform logic influences two contemporary public information infrastructure projects: the NIH's Biomedical Data Translator and the NSF's Open Knowledge Network. I argue that projects like these, while well intentioned, demonstrate the fundamental limitations of platformatized public infrastructure and create new capacities for harm by their enmeshment in and inevitable capture by information conglomerates. The dream of a seamless "knowledge graph of everything" is unlikely to deliver on the utopian promises made by techno-solutionists, but they do create new opportunities for algorithmic oppression -- automated conversion therapy, predictive policing, abuse of bureacracy in "smart cities," etc. Given the framing of corporate knowledge graphs, these projects are poised to create facilitating technologies (that the info conglomerates write about needing themselves) for a new kind of interoperable corporate data infrastructure, where a gradient of public to private information is traded between "open" and quasi-proprietary knowledge graphs to power derivative platforms and services.
When approaching "AI" from the perspective of the semantic web and knowledge graphs, it becomes apparent that the new generation of #LLMs are intended to serve as interfaces to knowledge graphs. These "augmented language models" are joint systems that combine a language model as a means of interacting with some underlying knowledge graph, integrated in multiple places in the computing ecosystem: eg. mobile apps, assistants, search, and enterprise platforms. I concretize and extend prior criticism about the capacity for LLMs to concentrate power by capturing access to information in increasingly isolated platforms and expand surveillance by creating the demand for extended personalized data graphs across multiple systems from home surveillance to your workplace, medical, and governmental data.
I pose Vulgar Linked Data as an alternative to the infrastructural pattern I call the Cloud Orthodoxy: rather than platforms operated by an informational priesthood, reorienting our public infrastructure efforts to support vernacular expression across heterogeneous #p2p mediums. This piece extends a prior work of mine: Decentralized Infrastructure for (Neuro)science) which has more complete draft of what that might look like.
(I don't think you can pre-write threads on masto, so i'll post some thoughts as I write them under this) /1
With local-first apps, users have full control over their data, and it is stored on their own device rather than on remote servers. This reduces the risk of data breaches and unauthorized access to data.
ODD apps are not only local-first, but they are also able to work offline and collaborate across multiple devices. #oddsdk #localfirstcomputing #p2p
#federation #p2p #socialnetworks
good article on some of the issues with federated social networks, i think they were not thinking radically enough though.
we need bridges to p2p networks. federated social networks are just a stepping stone to fully p2p networks that are not just about social interactivity but a lot more.
Todos sabemos que nos vigilan, que nos observan y escuchan incluso hasta cuando dormimos, pero individualmente no podemos hacer casi nada.
En este caso se confirma que el #individualismo es perfecto para un #capitalismo de #vigilancia total. (Algunos saltaran para apuntar a la supuesta excepcion de China, pais totalitario y tambien con vigilancia total, pero en realidad es una capitalismo de Estado, nada mas, ni tampoco menos)
Otros podran decir, que "si todos nos pasaramos a soluciones de la talla de #jami, #briar, #session, #torchat, #ricochet, #simplex y algun otro #p2p que se me haya pasado, nos escapariamos de esto", la verdad es que olvidan que si no hemos logrado despues de casi 2 decadas convencer a los mas de 5 MIL MILLONES de personas que hoy poseen un movil, la realidad es que sin la ayuda de los putos Estados o de empresas gigantes (justamente quienes nos quieren vigilar) esta tarea es imposible.
El capitalismo premia (con castigos o beneficios) a quienes les son utiles... y a quienes como nosotros, no tenemos ese objetivo, siempre nos mantiene marginados, excluidos en una esquina.
Suena duro, pero ya sabemos como ha sido la historia:
La escriben y la firman los ganadores y no quienes la hacen.

@Europakueken #mintos sehe ich persönlich sehr kritisch.
1. "Seriösität" - Der Anbieter stand in der Vergangenheit immer wieder in der Kritik, nicht nur die umstrittene AGB Änderung 2020, sondern auch der Verdacht auf geschönte Statistiken, vor allem bei der Ausfallquote steht auf dem Tisch. Auch sollte erwähnt werden, dass die lettische Platform rote Zahlen schreibt. Was also wenn die Firma pleite geht oder die Internetseite offline geht? Dann wird es schwierig werden, das angelegte Kapital zurückzufordern.
2. "Nachhaltigkeit" - Wenn man schon versucht im unregulierten Kreditmarkt mit Wucherzinsen Geld zu verdienen, sollte man genauer hinschauen. Mir fehlen Impakt Reports und andere CSR Analysen von unabhängigen Prüfern, die bei seriösen Mikrofinanzanbietern vorhanden sind: https://www.ecoreporter.de/artikel/vier-mikrofinanzfonds-im-test-welcher-liegt-vorne/
Mal wieder Zeit für einen sehr persönlichen Einblick in mein Portfolio bei Mintos.
Weiterhin starke Performance überhalb der Inflation. Ein Investment, zumindest als Beimischung, sei empfohlen. 🙂
Die überfälligen Gelder sind größtenteils Gelder in Großbritannien, wo im Rahmen einer Umstrukturierung eine Rückzahlung verspätet stattfindet.
Ich lasse das Portfolio weiterhin unberührt arbeiten.

Hey folks! Distributed.Press is venturing into the world of federated social and are working on our moderation tools. Specifically this will be on getting #WebMentions into #p2p published blogs.
What sorts of tools do you wish you had for making #moderation easier? I'll document some of the ones we're already planning in this thread too.
Boosts and shares appreciated.
Not to toot my own horn, but I'm still very happy with this #p2p #database I wrote that uses #hypercore with a MongoDB-like interface.
I had a great time today at the Dawstown Point to Point horse racing event! The races started at 2 pm and continued until 4.30 pm, and I went with some of my buddies from the Blarney Photography Club. We positioned ourselves near the second last jump, and it was a super fun day filled with lots of action and photography opportunities. Check my blog post for more!

Hoping to iron out a cool new #p2p social layer on top of your #dweb sites later this year!
@atomicpoet as long as a solution depends on servers it depends on being subsidized. Bluesky and Mastodon and all these client-server based solutions are half steps on the road to a fully symmetrical #p2p network, where the foundation that developers build on doesn’t require a rent-seeking landlord — this is what Socket Runtime is now capable of providing https://github.com/socketsupply/socket
Users don’t care if a project is decentralized or centralized. But they do care about how much their being charged. Cloud is 100% more expensive than #p2p.
Howdy, #fediverse 🤛
Have a great weekend! 🍀
If you have some spare time and you're interested in self-sovereign digital society, you might want to have a look at Swarm. It's a #P2P system with great incentives for participants and one of the best projects in this space imho. I find it's decentralized and open nature very intriguing. I recommend you read the whitepaper and if you want to know more, then the Book of Swarm is a great read for more in-depth info.
How #P2P is your P2P?
If it works between iPhones, laptops, Androids, etc *without any servers*, and without a centralized API, its P2P.
What's the only thing better than free-tier? Free forever! That's what you get with Peer To Peer. #P2P. :nocloud:
Im excited that people are starting to notice what we're doing at this early stage, it's time for us to start talking less about WHY we're doing it and HOW we're doing it. Over the next few months we will start rolling out an entire education platform for building #localfirst and #p2p apps.
Good article on Forbes about how #SocketSupplyCo is replacing #cloud with #p2p — https://www.forbes.com/sites/waynerash/2023/04/11/socket-supply-company-replaces-cloud-with-peer-to-peer-approach/?sh=34ec7d2111a4
Socket Runtime’s #p2p takes #wasm out of the cloud, beyond the edge, and makes it ubiquitous. “Edge” computing is just a half step on the historic path away from the costs and constraints of the data center.

I needed to securely transfer messages and files between two computers today and was looking for a quick way.
https://keet.io/ worked very well for that.
agreed. here's a plan for how to do that. the NIH/NSF are moving in almost exactly the other direction though, which will be the subject of a breakout piece I'm writing now.
not just federated, we need #p2p - a new generation of p2p that learns from federation and can act as a superset :)
Where's the social #search engine where we can rank things ourselves and customize our own search views? Make it #federated, if not #P2P too please.
here are over 60 #p2p, #fediverse, and #indieweb-related repos to pique your curiosity and excite your innovation https://github.com/stars/selfagency/lists/fediverse-indieweb-and-p2p
Should we open source our #p2p network simulator?
Just loaded my first #p2p site published to the new version of https://distributed.press with proper #ipfs #hypercore and #dnslink support!
The DNSLink stuff is a bit iffy for hypercore, but I'll be fixing that up tomorrow.
Now stuff can be published via Distributed Press, and viewed via @agregore
What's cool is that in addition to keeping your content online, you can easily configure it to set up DNS keys for you by delegating with an NS DNS entry for the `_dnslink` subdomain on your domain.
