>>8606>Anybody else following the current Freenode drama/exodus?>Yet another example of our projects failing. The internet as a liberatory force has been an abject failure.
This has nothing to do with internet technology, I listened to the video of the techrights website guy and the fault seems to be in meat-space. Internal power struggles, bad behavior of people and so on.
We could try tech fixes for meat problems:
On the technical side it's easier to just put a server that hosts things, but then the server is subject to power struggle. Peer to peer systems don't have that problem, but it's very new technology and it's not obvious how to make it work smoothly. What needs to happen is a general purpose virtual server that on the network side works like peer to peer. A peer to peer stack that can handle existing client server software would be nice, and use device resources from users as well as using traditional hosting resources.>>8613
