On the notes of #indieweb and #platformsocialism this guys talk on “Decentralisation begins at decentring yourself” really nails a lot of what we are doing here with twtxt/yarn: the why and the how, also how to make sure it is financially sustainable: https://ar.al/2022/02/16/decentralisation-begins-at-decentring-yourself/
We need to start a conversation with small-tech.org and see if twtxt/yarn/etc. could be part of what they are creating

Most of what you hear about “decentralisation” is bullshit!
Yup! 👏 Web3, Blockchain, NFT, etc are all a big fat joke and a scam! The powers that be that we seek to de-power are just using these technologies as a “front”.
Decentralisation starts with decentralising yourself.
This is a great description! 👌 If we are to extend ourselves into the “digital world” then we must do so with ourselves being the centre of that by peering with others.
I’m gonna keep watching this all the way through, but yes I agree. Maybe I can go reach out to Aral Balkan and introduce myself.
Couple of other things I find interesting about all this, and weirdly coincidental – Facebook is being described as “People Farming” – Does anyone remember what the first and only game they ever built on their platform was called?! 🤣 (not that I ever played it, I never had a Facebook account, ever!).
I also find it interesting the way in which Facebook/Meta’s business model and relationship with their customers (other corporations) and their Users (you as the product) are drawn. Notice how it looks remarkably like the new Meta™ logo?! 😅
I can’t help but wonder… Surely Mark Z was never this evil to start with? But then you remember the old proverb, Power feeds Powers. Once you have a taste of it, you can’t let go 😢
NFT(s) are Ponzi schemes
They, small-tech.org, were hosting a live stream yesterday where I asked Aral if he know about twtxt and yarn.social. He did not, but he does now was his answer😉
@email@example.com Noice one ☺️ I also sent him an email 👌
@firstname.lastname@example.org I did play FarmVille a lot in the past. never paid for it, not proud of it. was a waste of time
