>>fg-984C846B (OP) Gonna say, this is infinitely better than JewishChan already, Tor works.
tech is heck
I HATE BIG TECH
>>fg-DE277002 its all activitypub json, you can view everything from the server links. The client just parses the server activity streams. you can view all of /b/ from 0xchan at https://0x00000000.xyz/b/outbox you can make your own client that reads the outbox of an instance. Then when you follow another instances you are just pulling for all the other instances outboxes. Its all based on activitypub protocol. A board is an "Actor" in activitypubs terms. you can view /g/ board actor here https://fchan.xyz/g and you can see all its posts here https://fchan.xyz/g/outbox its all parsing the activity objects getting the data you want and displaying it.
>>fg-984C846B (OP) > I HATE BIG TECH they hate us more :( how dare we not go back to the days of time share computing of the 1970s and not OWN software anymore. big tech sucks humongous horse cocks.
>>fg-U9QRSITF each board is subscribed to other boards that they want to see. when a post is made the post is sent to all the boards that follow that board. if a board makes a post that you are not following you will not see it. there is no mention support at this time its either subscribe to a board, or you have boards subscribed to your board.
>>fg-427SVY9U we need to distill and aggregate down all the important shit into a simple picture that even the smoothest of brains can comprehend something that will act as a hook that will then lead normalfags to the main knowledge repository of how they have been fucked in the ass for many years now some website that displays well on mobile phones, contains the most important redpills, summary of big tech shit, list of sites and organisations that help people unfuck themselves there were some "big tech exodus" threads on F-Bchan/pol/ , but it died out https://wiki.techxodus.org/ is what came out of that, but it's far from being a normalfag-friendly site. https://switching.software/ is a bit better, but doesn't go that deep into all aspects of big tech I would be happy to participate in creation of something like this
>>fg-5XSWE91T Walls of text about how big tech is bad and normie friendliness are diametrically opposed. What you're missing is that normies literally do not give a fuck. You can explain in detail how Google is selling their location data to the military (through a 3rd party but still), it will not mobilize anyone into action. The only thing most people care about is features and ease of use. The reason nobody cares about techxodus or any of the other "big tech is fucking you in the ass" websites isn't because nobody reads them, it's just that most people don't mind being fucked in the ass. You're missing the forest for the trees. Eventually something really bad will happen which will win over public opinion on Google et all, but they still won't switch. What will happen is that governments will pass some "no fucking people in the ass" laws that stop big tech from doing what they currently are and that's how it'll end. Populism is a meme, you gotta convince the people at the top if you want things to change.
>>fb-RGQZXY8D >Walls of text about how big tech is bad and normie friendliness are diametrically opposed I agree that's why I said that the hook should be small and efficient. Wall of text should be available for those who are interested, but it should be behind few layers of more normalfag-friendly presentations. >What will happen is that governments will pass some "no fucking people in the ass" laws last time I checked it was so that governments did not give a fuck about people and sucked major corporate cock so yes, maybe there will be some LARP about how this time they will really stop big tech, but then there will be no noticable change also thank you for sticking with the assrape analogy, made it fun reading your post
>>fg-ZV3FWQXI But they don't care about the hook either. Unless they hook contains "this software has more features and it's easy to use" normies don't care. You can make some concise page but it will do nothing. If they cared they would have already done the research, Snowden leaks are public knowledge is so is Google's rampant data collection. Governments are full of 60+ year olds that have no idea why Google collecting data is bad. The government might not care about the public all that much but they are the only ones with the power to stop them. Sure it will be a moderate policy that doesn't so much kill Google as hamstring targeted ads, but it will still ensure that they slowly fade from the public eye. Apple knows it's coming. That's why they're billing themselves as a privacy friendly company, so that they can pivot to a non-surveillance business model when the time comes.
>>fg-XIT9798K it drives me mad that normalfags refuse to see the potential of FOSS how do we show them that world would be much better place if people embraced FOSS? some simple mobile game where player has a choice between doing things the open way vs doing things proprietary way, where going open results in exponential growth after some time while proprietary looks promising at the start but that path leads to player fucking up? some simulation with friendly-looking characters that demonstrates this concept? keep in mind that normalfags are clinically retarded, so any way of presenting the long-term advantage of FOSS would have to be so simple that mentally handicapped 5yearold can understand it I'm interested, what method of convincing normalfags into embracing FOSS would you use?
>>fg-ZPI7B45L >some simple mobile game I feel like this would unironically be a good method, but it does have to be REALLY simple (considering the current market of mobile games) Generally the best way to do it is to strengthen the existing network of FOSS software, and it will slowly allow others to switch. Having lots of people use a software will attract others, and is probably more effective then trying to convince a brainwashed roastie.
>>fg-ZPI7B45L >what method of convincing normalfags into embracing FOSS would you use? By actually making good software. Normies will never care about the ideology of FOSS, they will only see the convenience of good and useful software. Nothing else will matter as long as shit just works. I bet you don't question the values, philosophy or ideologies of different consumer products you use daily because you just don't care or don't see the value. There may be environmental conscious people triggered by your daily missteps for example, but you may don't even know you're doing something -bad-. It is the same thing with normalfags and proprietary software. Why would they care? These services are easy to use and also used by a lot of their friends and family.
>>fg-UBZTSV84 this works until amazon makes use of amazon sidewalk. The chip and Bluetooth standard for it is already standard and might be in devices that don't advertise it. bezos's botnet will finally have access to a meshnet. https://www.nytimes.com/wirecutter/blog/amazon-sidewalk-review/
>>fg-YQH96BS8 >everything they use is already "good enough" you would be surprised. microsoft has been getting too cocky lately and even normies are annoyed that windows is slow as fuck on their computers, if someone cared to patiently show then an alternative system that is light on resources, they would probably be willing to switch if it isn't too alien (so no installing gentoo), not being spied on is a nice bonus too. remember that for them, the operating system is just a bootstrapper for the browser.
>>fg-3G4RHY0T >the operating system is just a bootstrapper for the browser And this is why ChromeOS is the second biggest OS worldwide and yes, Gentoo will be the most used distro ever. At least until Google decides to rebase the system or replace it entirely with Fuchsia.
>>fg-A8BBOS86 >they will only see the convenience of good and useful software. Nothing else will matter as long as shit just works. Normies don't care about software quality or usability because they don't have any technical knowledge to pass a judgement on that. What they do is trust the popularity ie. herd mentality. >I bet you don't question the values, philosophy or ideologies of different consumer products you use daily because you just don't care or don't see the value. I don't see the value because I don't have enough knowledge to make a judgement. >There may be environmental conscious people triggered by your daily missteps Caring about FOSS is caring about your freedoms right here and now...it's easy to make missteps if the only consequence are some catastrophic weather forecasts made 50 years in advance
>>fg-IHPSTUJO >I don't see the value because I don't have enough knowledge to make a judgement wow you're right, you have no idea what you're talking about: >the only consequence are some catastrophic weather forecasts made 50 years in advance please stop less time on random linux and anime forums and educate yourself on different topics and don't reproduce for the sake of the planet, but I guess that one is already covered.
>>fg-XNMSGOQ2 → valid point also, somewhat relevant, I strongly suspect that Vine was brutally murdered in order to make space for TikTok they are basically same thing, except that now chinks have even more control over platform than they had before
>>fg-TITV60J9 No, poor management and fierce competition killed it, schizo retard. They never had a proper business model and Twitter lost interest. Western social faggotry and declining social capital will bring the demise of the other major tech companies to make way to chinese and indian ones.
