So after being aware of the numerous softwares that aim for decentralization, or a more refined federation or distributed web, the big questions still stand up in the first spot:
How much of this wave of decentralized software has substantial hype?
Is there a usable use case for the hundreds of millions that are 'aware' of the crimes and wrongdoings of the corporate operators, but are not technically literate enough to wrap their heads around using alternatives?
What would you find to be the ideal hype-to-substance ratio?
When will the casual end user be able to run decentralized software?
The announcement of Neocities' IPFS implementation of their website was over 3 years ago. The US states of Illinois and New Jersey are looking into the technology of decentralization and blockchain technology, and the proposed Spanish Catalan state is currently using IPFS to host some sort of files in order to bypass the censorship of the Spanish government. And according to patch notes, the latest version of Firefox will become more friendly to alternatives such as IPFS, DAT, and Secure Scuttlebutt/SSB.
What do you think of this wave proposing against centralized tech?
