Decentralize where your mouth is

This is an ancient post, published more than 4 years ago.
As such, it might not anymore reflect the views of the author or the state of the world. It is provided as historical record.

I have lately come across such a comment:

Hi sorry for barging in, but with all of the projects now based around decentralisation, I thought a common place to exchange ideas would be good.

“Oh”, thought I, “this is gonna be good!” A grand idea: let’s create a place to talk about decentralisation. After all, decentralization is so important and all. Where should we create such a place? Diaspora? Friendica? Any other decentralized, federated service?

I have created a subreddit as a place for as many projects to collaborate and share experiences, research and general comments.


What better place to talk about decentralization than a centralized service, right?..

It’s not technology we need to change, it’s our mentality.
