Talk about why every single site except reddit and fbi.gov has been complete and utterly abandoned.

>Interesting things going on

Browsers are all forcing https by default. On the surface this sounds like a good idea but in reality it's part of a larger plan of control.
Website owners are now at the mercy of the cert authorities. Host something they dont like? you cert gets revoked and now your site wont load on 99% of web browsers.
you have been shutdown.

>What is the dead internet theory?

Dead internet is partly caused by a generational problem, zoomers just want to be where they're friends are. it's understandable, we even did the
same back in the 2000s. everyone was on AIM and myspace. The only difference is those platforms actually did allow free speech back then. now the
internet has become more centralized and a handful of big corps run it all. they are in charge of what gets said on their platforms. not you.

>big techs goal

Big tech is fighting a future war. They know the young are the future. It’s about indoctrination. They are building their vision for the future. A dumbed down controlled population.

>What is the purpose of these threads?

To start a community outside of those corporate owned platforms.
To have a place to discuss things without having to self police yourself.
To discuss and share decentralization technologies.

HTTPS only protects again man in the middle attacks, it is why every modern phishing site have legit https as you just have to have modern modern keys for your server. When you do see a web site with broken https it is because their server is running outdated keys (or enough people reported it as a malicious site).
Thus you have the situation where any script kiddie can rent a web server that is already setup with https and up to date keys, where all have to do is drop in their webpage that mimics a login page then pay for a domain name that is close enough.

The traditional forums you remember still exist, are surprisingly active, and filled with like-minded people who prefer the healthier and more intellectually engaging format of forums to social media. They may not get the exposure and growth we wish and they probably deserve, but that's because normie zoomer newcomers to the internet prefer the speed and simplicity offered by shitholes like facebook, twitter, reddit, and fbi.gov. The old internet never truly died, you're just lazy.

Still, what really interests me is Usenet
I know it's still "alive", but are people actually active on it to be considered a social hub?

How is the modern Internet any different then the walled gardens of AOL, Prodigy and CompuServe? What made the Internet the Internet in the 1990s is long dead, where the Internet is now a zombie of what is use to be.

Use .onions, GNUnet, Freenet or I2P.

Good luck getting normies to do this

 No.16345

.onion doesn't protect against man-in-the-middle attacks because it doesn't encrypt the last relay traffic when there's the lack of HTTPS. That's the hole of legacy TCP/IP model.

Alternatively, you can ask people to import your own HTTPS certificate, but again: good luck getting normies to do this and tying to avoid many and many man-in-the-middle attacks by importing random certificates.

>.onion doesn't protect against man-in-the-middle attacks because it doesn't encrypt the last relay traffic when there's the lack of HTTPS.
Yes it does. That's why you don't need https on .onion domains.

MITM attacks aren't possible on v3 .onion domains (and unlikely on v2) because they are 56 characters long. These 56 characters are a base 32 number based on the server's public key. You would have to guess the matching private key to do a MITM attack.

Oops my bad, didn't noticed i said '.onion' lol

The internet isn't literally "dead", but considering most users willingly bend themselves and their behaviour to algorithms it might as well be

 No.17427

Also it doesn’t help that the developers of those algorithms had generations of people that had already grown up on pervasive masscult in other mediums such as TV and cinema and print and radio
Every conceivable petty prejudice and inclination already hammered out for them

Yet computer scientists going back to the 1960s saw the goal of search features as actually serving the wanted data from an ocean of data. AT&T Bell Labs during development of Unix would think the idea of a search that injected "recommended" results as completely stupid as why would want the computer to do something you didn't ask it to do. Imagine if databases worked like this, you searched a field and the database pulls up records that has nothing to do with what you just queried based on what you searched days prior.

Yet you have Google's search getting worse due to it throwing in results that has nothing to do with your query and I would think the old school computer scientists would see this as completely unacceptable.

Saw Sam Kriss raise a similar point
>For all the panic over online censorship, this stuff is far more destructive. You have no free speech—not because someone might ban your account, but because there’s a vast incentive structure in place that constantly channels your speech in certain directions. And unlike overt censorship, it’s not a policy that could ever be changed, but a pure function of the connectivity of the internet itself. This might be why so much writing that comes out of the internet is so unbearably dull, cycling between outrage and mockery, begging for clicks, speaking the machine back into its own bowels.
