Re: %2mzRpUkjf

I've been thinking about this a lot lately! Site creation should be accessible to non-devs! And it also shouldn't be a chore to developers. Themes and widgets can be fun to make, but they take too much time. How can we make the browser be an output multiplier?

I've been poking at a themes concept and I think it's starting to work. It's a somewhat natural tool to introduce for site creation... Beaker borders on being Wordpress or Gatsby, shouldn't there be a theming system? So that's where I'm iterating right now.

I think the p2p web is about accessible creation. How can entire web applications be convenient for end-users to create? It's important to non-devs so they're empowered; it's important to devs so they can work on real things instead of the same stuff repeatdly; and it's important to decentralization because it moves us away from big cloud deployments that handle everything.

Been iterating a lot on ease-of-authoring lately ( On top of convenient editor tooling, I'm really interested in composing the UI so that people can get a lot out of value from very little work.

One of the simplest tools for that could be a "theme" setting which injects css and js onto the page, grease-monkey style. You author unstyled html/markdown, pick a theme for your site or page, and you're set: the browser imports css & js from the theme dat. With web-components declaring new HTML tags, you'll even be able to get widgets imported from the themes. <paulstheme-recent-blogposts>, that sort of thing.

Re: %wqSr67ezn

Sure --

I felt it was a real chance to build meaningful connections. The daytimes were familiar for dweb summits - lots of interesting sessions and talks and discussions. The camp fires at night were a cheerful setting for getting to know people. Having everybody in one space for the full weekend meant there were a lot more random chances for conversations, and usually those were my favorite; stuff like walking to & from my tent with Ben and DC while talking about mission, or an hour where I sat in the registration tent with Ross Schulman and the Archive interns and joked about total nonsense. I felt like I came away with new friendships, which is not something you get to say very often.

Tell us something unexpected that was awesome! Just how much fun it was.
Did you drink tea? What was the flavour? Coffee!!
Are you new to SSB, how do you find it so far? So is it about butts that scuttle? Or is it about the butts of scuttlers?
Did you discover some new project there that excited you? Tell us more! I think holochain is really interesting and it was great to hear more about it.
What made you laugh? laughed a lot with @zelf :upside_down_face: playing ultimate rock-paper-scissors was a total blast and very funny
How were the chilly summer evenings on the tents? I brought extra blankets, the worst part was I couldnt wear the blanket through the day (soooo chilly)
Was it your first time camping? Did you like it? First time since my family had the camping trip from hell when I was 12. But that's another story.

Re: %588UVx/fE

@nanomonkey you could do that in jsonlz. Youd just name the schema the hash. Or you could put it as an added attribute on the vocab object ("hash" perhaps)

@pfraze %1qhXu6RRm4TMnSYQ77v2kw2nc7Ber/7ccT7uRGqXI6I=.sha256
Re: %588UVx/fE

Yeah, I think when it comes to identifying schemas, the only universally reliable technique is to use duck-typing. That's your baseline. However if you can get apps to agree on some metadata schemas to self-describe, then you get a slightly simpler process. That's one of the things that JSON-LD does, but I don't think it's very ergonomic for JS devs, so now I'm trying this alternative JSON-LZ. (SSB does this with the type field too but I think layering on JSON-LZ could be helpful and would work well.)

For your usecase, it'd help to have all of those teams agree on a metadata to identify schemas, but if not you'll need to munge off of duck typing.

The one other thing I'm trying to do, other than making munging simpler and have a nicer metadata schema than JSON-LD, is create a tool for identifying when lack of full support would create errors.

Re: %eI1IGY0T+

It's been interesting to revisit this! Everybody's making great observations.

Here are some my current takeaways:

  • Fallback behavior. The most fallest backest is to show json. Showing nothing can cause chaos but not everybody wants to see json, so that's a tradeoff. Perhaps it's worth exploring some conventional fields for what to show when nothing works.
  • Developer ergonomics. The DX is more important than "doing it right." Devs are going to do what they want. You can't force them to use something (like JSON-LD) so at best you can make sure the tools are good enough that they want to use it, and then make sure you tolerate chaos. (Robustness principle, also Worse is Better)
  • No universals. Most of these decisions will end up being app-specific, and dominated by the apps in use.
  • ...but Schema features are "app." I'm still thinking about a "requires feature" field, which devs could use to tell another client, "if you dont support this extension Im adding, please go to one of the fallback behaviors." Right now we have somebody in Rotonde trying to implement private-group posts, and they can't get Fritter not to show those posts on the feed. That's a similar problem to what we had in Patchwork when we rolled out channels. Rotonde needs a way to tell Fritter, "if you dont know what groups are, just dont render this please." And it'd be interesting for that to be configurable -- "please use the 'raw json' fallback if you dont support this."

So at this point, I'm talking to the ActivityStreams crowd (Mastadon and W3C Social WG) and theyre very hyped about their vocab and the potential for a compatible p2p world, so I'm trying to evaluate that.

I would be happy to change my tune, but I'd like to see an app where the killer feature is the schemas.

@dominic that's definitely the question here. Will these vocabs make devs happy (oh look at all the cool types I can use) or annoyed (how do I use this, ugh it doesnt do what I need). Tough call.

Re: %eI1IGY0T+

Consensus is a funny thing here because it's variable. There's definitely some minimum of agreement required for apps to interoperate, but that minimum depends on each app, and that's where the discussion gets complex. If we're going to enable decentralized development, we have to support experiments and extensions, and create predictable results for everybody involved. It's tough, maybe impossible to do perfectly, but that's where my idea of declaring dependencies of feature-support within the schema is rooted (the requires attribute). When you imagine JSON records as documents, then you can see a parallel to HTML pages and how they sometimes do feature-detection ... so there's kind-of/sort-of precedent.

JSON-LD (JLD) is a solution about specificity more than agreement -- how can we make sure our attributes don't collide? In a way that makes it super amenable to non-consensus, because it's enabling everybody to do their own thing safely.

My problem with JLD is usability. I haven't seen any JLD APIs that make me go "ah yes that's easy to work with" much less one that makes me say "ah yes that's fun!" And I only want to use fun APIs. If we can solve that, and we can also make publishing namespace documents fun, then I'm on board.

@reconbot content-addressable is an interesting idea but it's very ugly in the code :worried:

@andrestaltz that's such a tough call. I like being able to see the JSON but I think if devs could reliably predict, and therefore choose from, approaches that would cause their message to hide if not supported, they could make good enough decisions that a hidden message wouldn't be disasterous. In practice, I think devs will go out of their way to avoid totally hidden messages -- and will rely on generic attributes to make sure something can be rendered.

Re: %47NrzBqc3

Yeah! Thankfully Tara and I are working full time.

We are looking for funding, and we definitely want folks to build apps, but only if they feel compelled to. It's still pretty hard work because we haven't put together really superb guides.

Our long term sustainability plan is to (eventually) scale up hashbase and also sell home servers with a hashbase stack bundled. Hashbase is self-deployable so we'd be selling convenient deployments for folks.

(For those who dont know, Hashbase is similar to SSB's pubs. It's a dat rehosting service that gives you reliable uptime and -- someday -- more disk space for backups, and perhaps more.

Re: %47NrzBqc3

Heya @mix!

Lots of different priorities on the roadmap:

  • Release Beaker 0.8. This should fix some usability that we feel the current release has. It's taken us a while to release for a couple reasons I'll explain below.
  • Develope the applications stack. More on this below too.
  • Revamp our docs so that hackers can figure everything out more quickly.
  • Keep developing demo applications so that we can test the application stack. This is what Fritter is about. A few folks are using it and we don't know what the endgame is, but the main purpose is help us move the stack forward.
  • Increment Hashbase's features a bit. Hashbase isn't our top priority, but two things we want to nail are custom domains and encouraging people to self-deploy.
  • Brave Dat plugin.
  • Switch Beaker from Electron to Muon to improve our sandboxing & security.
  • Dat improvements. Improve the reliability of the Dat protocol (we've started work on integration tests) and roll out multi-writer support.

We spent the last 6 months figuring out what Beaker 0.8 should do. We kicked around a lot of ideas. At least 2 months went toward prototyping dead-ends but that taught us a lot about how to build apps on Dat. What we're releasing won't be a big surprise, but it'll hopefully be a much more refined experience than 0.7 is.

Our strategy is to make Beaker & Dat really enjoyable for hackers. We think a big opportunity is that Beaker/Dat can support 100% open-source Web apps with no devops. Eventually we want it so you can sit down at an app, open up the code, and just start hacking on it. We're looking at new approaches to Web security (like JS is disabled by default) and wondering whether more strict rules are actually liberating because we don't have to operate from the lowest common denominator of trust. And, we're beginning to look at compositional tools, including userland plugins, automatic loading of "viewer apps" when you visit Dat sites with no HTML, and ways to share user-profile Dats between apps in order to share datasets.

WebDB was a pretty solid step forward for the app stack. The internal fritter API, which should look a little familiar to SSB folk(!), was built on WebDB. Basically, WebDB is an indexer that uses indexeddb, so each app is currently building and syncing its own indexes. Works well for flexibility, but it's not very efficient with user's disk space. It'll do for now! Our next step for the stack is to make sure we wring as much value as possible out of Dat and the "pull only" architecture. Simultaneously, I've been exploring hosted crypto contracts (can we get trustless services without PoW?) and also reading up on federated systems like SOLID and ActivityPub.

So, that's about it.

Re: %b67fV1mRo

So does that caveat just mean it does not define how it affects the state of the server's backend file system?

Correct. The spec tells server-developers about various aspects of PUT. In general, PUT should be idempotent. -- ...

Oh geez, I just realized I said "idempotency of GET" in that blogpost, but that's not right. GET isn't idempotent, it's uneffectful. PUT is idempotent. Oh boy that makes me look silly. I'll need to fix that. Back to the conversation.

... -- PUT should be idempotent, but the spec doesn't say whether the resource should be republished "as given" at the target URL, which is what a filesystem would do. Many services accept the content of the PUT and then affect a variety of changes to the service state, and that doesn't need to include republishing the content of the PUT at the target URL.

So is SOLID refining PUT?

They're creating specs for generic server behaviors.

SOLID's API is specced here: It's the same basic premise as WebDAV, a spec for server behaviors, just less ugly (hopefully) than WebDAV.

Re: %b67fV1mRo

@bobhaugen The semantics of PUTs are fairly well-scoped but they fall short of being universally defined. Here's the rub:

HTTP/1.1 does not define how a PUT method affects the state of an origin server.

To give the universal "dumb storage" behavior, the PUT would need to be guaranteed to put the file to the given location. There were attempts to get that, eg with WebDAV as Joey says, but it didn't pan out.

It relates to Dat because Dat is a universal dumb Web filesystem like I want. Coincidentally, SOLID is doing that too, using HTTPS.

Re: %bUBeVgYIe

I would be interested to see whether alternative, domain-specific rendering engines could create better performance. I'm also curious what would happen with webasm + webgl renderers, but I'm pretty sure that's still going to be slow because both use untrusted code execution, so there's overhead of the protection mechanisms. I doubt you'll do faster than native HTML engines with untrusted code. Would love to be wrong.

We're trying an alternative web app model in Beaker with Dat (gif and related spec) and it's both more secure than the Web service model, and more user-friendly, since it shares the same character of SSB of putting all source on the user machine. I don't think it takes that much to save the Web, I think most of the ideas are already captured by the SSB world. Performance can be better, but the core toolset is a promiscuous application platform, and that's pretty good. Some p2p tech will fix her right up.

@joshuavial one thing we tried really early on in Patchwork was user-created ads. We literally had ad-space that people you follow could fill. And then you saw who put the ad there.

You could call it "Flyers" and use it both for paid placements or event just to tell your friends about something (like a party coming up)

Ok I've got another thought about software & content econ and it involves blaming Google and Facebook so it should be fun.

Google and Facebook are aggregators. They commoditize content, but they don't pay for the content, which is kind of fucked up when you consider that they make all their money putting ads up in their aggregators for other people's content. I always figured Kim Dot Com was skeezy for doing that with Megauploads, and now Im not sure FB and Google are much better.

Why can't creators monetize their content on the Web? I dislike ads as much as the next person, but clearly ads are a meaningful revenue model, because Alphabet brought in $90bn in 2016, and Facebook brought in $27 bn. How fun for them.

Now suppose we found a way to send a little fire back at them. Suppose we succeed with the dweb. Because applications would become open source and user-modifiable, perhaps the aggregators themselves could become commoditized. This is hypothetical, but let's consider it:

Any ads you place, the users will just strip out. Or, there'd be so much competition at the aggregator level, that the ad-free options would beat the ad-based ones. So (in theory) there'd be no reliable way for the aggregators to place ads on content they don't own. Users now choose when they're going to allow ads.

What happens next? Well, the demand for advertising (by advertisers) never really goes away. So perhaps it'll focus on the other existing channels than the aggregators, like sponsorships (see: Open Collective, Patreon) or sponsored content (see: any content channel ever). Perhaps users find a palatable form of ads, so long as they come from people they follow. "Oh, this ad was from @andrestaltz and it was for fidget spinners, gross, unfollowing." (Just kidding andre, I love fidget spinners.)

So, if that were to happen, I suppose the content channels would become more important again. There'd no longer be an aggregator that can cheat the user by controlling content placement. If you want to get your marketing material out there, you have to find people that users who have willingly followed or subscribed. What are the odds that the ad money would start flowing back to content creators, then?

Re: %MLO5nkXbQ

Some (probably obvious) observations. At the protocol level, Dat and SSB share quite a lot. Dat and IPFS share quite a lot too. But SSB and IPFS share relatively little. (Somebody should make that venn diagram.)

If SSB were to adopt a singleton discovery network then the most significant difference from Dat would be the focus on the log vs files. SSB focuses on the log, while Dat focuses on the files. Dat's internal log can be used by itself, but that's not the "primary" pattern. Likewise, SSB supports blobs.

The current patterns for consuming application data is

Re: %MLO5nkXbQ

I havn't been able to find out if you share something using dat by sending the secret link over a different channel, say email, does that make make the secret public or not.

If you possess the dat URL, you can read its content. Otherwise, the content is hidden from you (on the network). It is similar to an unlisted gist, or a google docs share link, but without a third-party.

And if not, how does it work, given its a DHT?

Dat hides the identifying content from the discovery network. Instead of polling for the link, it polls for a hash of the link. Then, the actual transfer is encrypted to keep it secret.

@andrestaltz That's an interesting idea though 1) analytics has a lot of writes and this adds overhead to those writes, and 2) we can't audit against where data is sent

@dominic Yeah it's a straightforward use of a crypto log. Basically we just log all the calls in a dat hypercore (log). Then that log gets replicated out to an auditor and should be hard to lie about as a result. The other magic is replaying the log in a local VM to make sure the script code is actually being run.

Another element, not yet implemented-- I want to have the RPC calls be signed by an EC keypair, and then use the pubkey as the ID. Need a crypto guru to help me get that right, though. Something something replay attacks.

I put together a site for nodevms:

NodeVMS is a server which provides external auditability of its state and behaviors using secure ledgers.

# Run auditable services
$ nodevms exec ./backend-script.js

# Run commands on a remote service
$ nodevms repl localhost:5555

# Audit the state and history of a service
$ nodevms verify localhost:5555

VMS uses Dat’s secure ledger and files distribution to publish transactions and service state in a public, unforgeable format. Clients can then download, replay, audit, and compare the state of the service to ensure the declared code is being executed correctly.

Check out keyserver.js. It's just 100 lines!

Re: %weC1AgqPO

The bot could be some non-human ssb account (pub maybe) that publishes messages based on some rules, in reaction (or not) to other ssb messages. The bot's state is a big array reduce of its log.

@andrestaltz that's fairly accurate. I'd like to have live endpoints so that I can get transactional acks.

For use cases like an airbnb, it's still kind of centralized (around the airbnb-bot owner), with the added benefit that anyone can copy (fork) the entire log of that bot and continue from there onwards.

The two centralizers would be the contract owner and the host VM. To deal with the former, you could "disown" a contract by reducing your permissions as the owner. I'm not sure whether the latter has much impact other than who is responsible for contract uptime.

I find it hard to see how would this be different or better than just deducing state client-side ... how is that better than Alice simply running reduce on all state transitions that she and Bob committed? In other words, what value is a Host providing if peers already have verifiable logs?

The value is in providing strict consensus at a live endpoint, without sacrificing auditability or user-authority (via signing keys). Strict consensus makes transactional guarantees possible, as well as broader constraints on state. For instance: with SC you can enforce a uniqueness constraint on something like a primary key.

Client-only can't provide strict consensus past a certain scale; to do it at small scale, they could use leader election. Arguably the blockchains cant scale either, thus this proposal.

There is a ton we can do without strict consensus (obviously!) so with this I'm just exploring, you know, could we get all the toys we want?

To address the devaluation of labor by globalization and robotics, we need a strong downward pressure on cost-of-living (housing, food, higher education, and medicine).

The wormhole tool uses PAKE "Password-Authenticated Key Exchange", a family of cryptographic algorithms that uses a short low-entropy password to establish a strong high-entropy shared key.

His slides link, at the top, gives a fast explanation. If this is right, would be great for pairing devices on LANs, or sharing links on conf slides. (Any time you need to dictate a key visually/orally.)

Re: %5xnsKQlt3

I was thinking like application/x-sha256 but now I'm seeing x- is deprecated. You might just use text/plain. If there's not already a hash mimetype, it may be because hashes arent considered the right thing for a mimetype. AFAIK mimetypes typically deal with the structure/format of the data, so that it can be correctly parsed, but it does not set the internal meaning. But shrug could be wrong

Re: %IOaxkfZ6Z

How do you see the intros working? Manual contact-sharing could be tedious. I feel like, part of the motivation for a public web-of-trust is to accomplish contact-sharing in an automated way.

for an unsolicited message, we could have something that works somewhat like an invite code

Capabilities are still fairly manual. Again my thinking is, what good is a WoT if it cant be used to automate things like intros? I'm imagining seeing the profile for your target recipient, with lots of collected proofs, and then saying "well now what?"

why would someone want to be a gate-keeper? what is their motivation?

I see this making sense as part of a mailing list or user group. The admins would be motivated to maintain a good community. A coincidental function of the list/group would then be as gatekeeper for introducing the members to each other.

@pfraze %Lr2Cgc2zRB5iH1Wr2LMbTDfvC9HVpc5vKPcufPW+xQk=.sha256
Re: %IOaxkfZ6Z

Thinking through some options. Let's say we implement a pub api for accepting "friend" requests, or any kind of unsolicited push-message. How do we prevent spam?

The equivalent to present-day patchwork would be to look for a foaf connection; if the sender is a friend of a friend of the recipient, that's allowed.

Another solution would be to look for a minimum number of identity proofs for the sender from the pub's network. That's basically what Facebook did when it required a .edu email. It sets a higher barrier. If you also publish for flags for spam behavior, you can stop bad actors pretty quickly.

Another idea, you might appoint "gate-keepers." This is similar to foaf. A user could declare some specific user(s) to be their gate-keeper, and you have to get approval from the keeper to be whitelisted. The idea would be for communities to publicly share gate-keepers, so that somebody entering into a social circle can get approval.

And, there's also the gmail solution, to apply graph analysis on a whole bunch of aggregated signals, which... let's assume is too computationally expensive for wide deployment.

A combination of foaf and gatekeeping seems interesting to me, though Im not sure how foaf works without follows being published. (maybe some other signal.) Gatekeeping might be integrated into discussion groups. That way there's a sort of social-setting within which somebody can get an intro, and there's also a social group that holds bad behavior accountable.

Re: %bPg++ENkX

There's probably an easier solution than creating virtual IPs. Write a proxy app to sit on port 80, and have it forward based on the hostname used, and add /etc/host entries for each app.

@pfraze %QhFbFfyR0Ok8aiRyowjrzOtMWrJKi/uoGdPXYnEZ1Ig=.sha256
Re: %bPg++ENkX

(Without the virtual IP -- if you run on localhost -- then you end up needing the port, because you cant use port 80 more than once. So, without vagrant, on just localhost, it would be "".)

@pfraze %bPg++ENkXbvSUB2+IU0rXif/OYn0vSagMdaqsqEI4Dc=.sha256

I just noticed that vagrant (Im guessing via virtualbox) is able to allocate virtual IP addresses, and then update your hosts file, so that you can get web apps at custom domains, without having to stick on the port. For instance, "" is my current client's URL, and that just maps to the vagrant instance...

which makes me wonder... if this could be used to have localhost web apps without putting a port in there?

@pfraze %IOaxkfZ6Z2f5OpgvdvXggXUeNVG36PhJIqwR1Mxqs+c=.sha256

@dominic so here's the question that Im on right now --

I like the idea of not publishing follows. But, if we do that, what's the process for getting two people in contact with each other?

We can create invite codes with special caps to do twoway follows, like we discussed on the call, but that means that you have to invite each contact manually. A user-directory, in that case, isn't fully useful. I can find your contact info there, but I still need a sidechannel to contact you and ask for the invite.

The way patchwork does now, with follows published, and FoaFs replicated, there's an implicit introduction-by-foaf protocol. You see when youve been followed, and then can follow back.

Im wondering if we could do a protocol for unsolicited "friend" requests that let's you contact the user's pub and leave your contact info.

Re: %zP7FhZbrx

@mixmix we missed you!

Here's what we discussed:

Focusing on the security properties of SSB and the Web of Trust.

  • Private follows: it's not always desirable to broadcast your contact list. And, follows are a relatively weak identity proof. We're going to investigate a system that keeps follows private.
  • Unrevealing replication: related to that, dominic has a scheme for replication which doesnt reveal who you asked for unless the receiving peer has the feed you requested
  • Identity proofs/verifications: instead of follows, we can create stronger identity proofs which mainly revolve around transmitting the proofs through other mediums (email, twitter, chat).
  • User invites: a code you can send to somebody that lets them follow you, and you follow them, in one go. Bonus: it can be used to create an identity proof for the new user.
  • Merge userland plugins pr
  • Merge ssb-blobs pr
  • Code for local onboarding: we can use a easy-to-speak code on LANs to add contacts via wifi.
  • Pub "application": it may be time to factor out some of the automated behaviors in scuttlebot into a pub app, because the end-user device behaviors are going to start to diverge.

Dominic and I are going to be doing some work on the Web of Trust and general onboarding for ssbmail. I bought tickets to the Decentralized Web Conf, and hopefully dominic and cel will get tickets too. We're going to try to prep the ssbmail app for that conference.

Our approach is based on a guaranteed wait time provided through the TEE.

Another function, say “CheckTimer” verifies that the timer was created by the TEE and, if it has expired, creates an attestation that can be used to verify that validator did, in fact, wait the allotted time before claiming the leadership role.

They dont explain what their algorithm is, other than calling it "proof of processor,” and sort of hinting that it's less costly than proof-of-work. Googling that gives nothing. Is it possible they just added some dedicated hardware for hash-mining to their chip?

It turned out to be the damping factor's addition needed the /4, which is why, if damping was 1, there'd be no problem. Updated:

for (var k in PR) {
  PR[k] = (1-d)/4 + (d*calc(k))

Without the /4, I tried different d values and, after 1000 iterations, checked what they added up to. It was interesting:

  • d=0.9, total=4
  • d=0.99, total=3.99987
  • d=0.999, total=2.89691
  • d=0.9999, total=1.28550

Re: %KaTZbqS7u

@dominic the profit-obligation is emergent, not regulatory. Fiduciary duty only requires that you protect somebody else's interests. It's designed to keep the executives from funneling assets out of the company.

Profit-maximization happens because people want to be a winner, and shareholders doubly so. Shareholders drive executive behavior either through direct structural action or by manipulating stock value. In public companies, the ownership is purely market-driven, and so you get an especially indifferent and greedy mob pushing the executives.

IMO a privately-held company has fewer people to convince of do-goodery, and, because of the more static political structure, is more likely to do long-term thinking. The best-case scenario is not to create emergent good, but to minimize emergent evil. But, having done so, you'll be left trusting individuals to make good choices.

My grandmother used to tell us this story about her pet dog.

One day, after a lot of begging, my great-grandmother took my grandmother to a shelter, and they brought home a chocolate lab. This would be nice, except they forgot to consult my great-grandfather first.

When he came home and saw it (so the story goes) he yelled "Damnit, another dog."

And that's how Damnit, the dog, was named.

Re: %RIzOS8hn+

Not that organization couldnt be improved, but I do explain this in detail at, immediately after the Namespaces section.

To be honest, I don't think this is a very good design because it creates edgecases

I've got mixed feelings about it as well. (Do a ctrl+f for "dissent welcome" to see the decisions that I'm -ish about; this is one of them.)

If we do want to abandon the legacy pattern, that would get rid of this. User profiles probably wouldn't be able to use kvdb directly until some time has passed, but that's ok.

Nah I dont think there's a tool that could hit that. JS' lack of explicit types make it hard to do the static analysis that could catch a bad method-call, like in this bug.

AFAIK the only thing that works is runtime analysis -- aka run the code, and stack dump when you hit the error -- aka test suites with coverage metrics.

Re: %YYGiCe48Q

@keks I do think sbot userland plugins will trivialize this

The only real difference between IPFS blobs and SSB blobs is that Scuttlebot automatically downloads SSB blobs, and it doesnt do that for IPFS.

But that's just 8 lines of logic in the blobs plugin :smirk:

So an ssb-ipfs-blobs plugin would be simple to write, and it could follow the same logic, or do something more refined.

It gets a little more complex if we want to unify blob-lookup behind one API. If we want sbot.blobs.get to support many protocols, then we'll just need a way for plugins to register their schemes.

Re: %YYGiCe48Q

It's just a matter of integration. Any other protocol we support has to have that software installed. If you dont have that software, you cant get that blob. And, each software stack takes resources. I'd rather use @mafintosh's file-syncing stack (hyperdrive / dat) because it's more modular and tries to solve fewer problems -- so it has less overlap with SSB.

Re: %vKlwncfcl

Yeah it's because our CLI notation doesn't support the parameters of private.publish. I dont think stdin would solve it, either.

We could create an alternate parameter signature that works better with the cli. Such as:

private.publish({ recps: [...], msg: { ... })

so then you could do

sbot private.publish --recps.0 @asdf --recps.1 @fdsa --msg.type post --msg.text hi!

Re: %RIzOS8hn+

If I understood it correctly, then there's a typo above in getting of todos

No not quite. In the example you copied, the todoList object is not a message, it's a KV "document" object. That's an abstraction over ssb messages. The messages are combined to create the KV documents.

when can I install this?

There's no code written yet, but I'll let you know

I'm wondering if this is accessible enough to be the first database that we teach students

You could, though this is pretty experimental tech to give beginners. PouchDB might be safer.

do you think you could fake relational database type behaviour with namespacing?

Maybe someday!

Re: %83SaZd+wb

It's really an aphorism about planning, not a statement of purpose.

An interesting anecdote about logistics --
Napoleon's defeat in Russia was logistical. France typically would support its army by looting food as it moved. During the invasion, Russia responded to this by burning down their own crops and cities before the French arrived. It was extremely effective. By the time France made a final push to Moscow, they were losing 6000 men a day to starvation and disease. When they reached Moscow, Russia burned it down too, and regrouped outside of its limits. France realized it couldn't defend the position, and had to retreat on the same path it came from: the path without food. By the end of the campaign, the French had lost 480,000 of their initial 500k in the Grand Armee. That's 48 for every 50 men, most without firing a shot.

Anyway, there's no reason I brought up the phrase, I just came across it and liked it

Yes, the same pattern that type: about and contact use. It'll be backward compatable with them.

pagerank simulated this, calculating the probability that if you'd land on a given page if you spent your life just randomly clicking on links. I think the key here is that pagerank is based on a model of what humans already do, it just makes it faster.

Re: %lPEEUM3Ry

@dominic some of the graph analysis papers mention "voting rings" which corrupt the reputation analysis. Some of them, including Advogato, used a seed-set to detect the rings. (The seed set is N pre-trusted participants.) The amount of trust you can get diminishes with your distance from the seed.

PageRank never mentions it, but, in practice, Google tweaks the rankings by hand. It's effectively the same action as a seed set. They'll exclude malware sites, and boost reputable institutions' sites.

In Advogato and Google, you're actually seeing a social trust-graph, that flows outward from the dataset's owners.

Re: %KPEKuoFrG

You might find this paper interesting, this is what I pulled from it in my writeup:

First, they isolate trust into domains, following the intuition that an agent may be an expert in one field, but not in another. Then, in section 2.4.2, they define 2 categories of trust, and subdivide them into 5 types.

The categories are

  • Referral trust: "reflects an agent's estimation about the quality of the other agents' knowledge"
  • Associative trust: "reflects the similarity between two agents"

The subdivisions are as follows:

  • Domain Expert Trust (DET) is referral trust that evaluates the quality of an agent's domain knowledge. Intuitively, DET is not transitive, but DET may imply RET (see next item) on the same domain.
  • Recommendation Expert Trust (RET) is referral trust that evaluates an agent's trust knowledge. In real world, the domain used in RET is often much wider than DET, e.g. CNN is a domain expert only in news area, while is a recommendation expert in almost any area. Moreover, RET in transitive according to its definition, so it can be used to propagate both DET and RET.
  • Similar belief trust (SBT) is an associative trust that evaluates the similarity of two agents' domain knowledge. Intuitively, SBT clusters information providers, and it can be used to propagate DET.
  • Similar trusting trust (STT) is an associative trust that evaluates the similarity of two agents' trust knowledge. Intuitively, STT clusters trustors (agents who maintain trust knowledge), and it can be used to propagate both DET and RET. Computing STT needs trust knowledge from only two agents.
  • Similar cited trust (SCT) is an associative trust that evaluates the similarity of how two agents are trusted. Intuitively, STT clusters trustees (agents who are trusted) by their reputation, and it can be used to propagate both DET and RET. Reliable SCT requires trust knowledge from a large population of agents.

  • We're working on making scuttlebot plugins installable which will open up big opportunities to make sbot easier to work with.

The meta right now is to make the tools more usable, which right now it's still a bit too hard to use. I'm optimistic about the sbot plugins.

That's a bit much. The Internet is full of bots and jerks.

the problem with this is that you end up back at content policing

That's the point, we do want content policing. If somebody dumps CP or snuff films on this network, I want it policed, and fast. If somebody else actually does want that content, that's on them, but I want it out of my network, and off any device I control.

  1. I thought it was 2 (friends, foafs) but then I checked the code recently, and it's actually 3!

Perhaps the answer to this is a more cautious replication policy.

Could be. Some thoughts about this:

  • Sbot doesnt have any "on-demand syncing" of the network. By that I mean, you only see data that you've previously downloaded, when using Sbot apps like Patchwork. If you come to a profile and get a 404, there's no mechanism to ask your peers for it yet. IMO that will change in the future, and changing that could mean, we can optimistically download less.
  • Expanding the follow graph, as we do now, may be too unpredictable of a policy. We're sort of testing it out. There are other possible optimistic-download policies. For instance, communities/groups/user-lists which you follow.

Re: %KPEKuoFrG

Worthy read: A survey of trust in computer science and the Semantic Web.
My summary:

For the purpose of writing software, I think it's useful to just assert:

  • "Trust" is a decision to use information, without certainty of its correctness.
  • "Reputation" is an attempt to measure many actors' trust in something.

Because that allows us to make these generalizations:

  • Trust is a one-to-one relationship
  • Reputation is an aggregate of Trust

Which then applies well to graphs:

  • Trust is a policy that individuals set on sources-of-information. These policies, or signals which reveal underlying policies, form edges on a graph. The edges are trust-relationships, and the nodes are actors/sources-of-info.
  • Reputation is measured by analysis of the trust graph. (PageRank, Eigentrust)

I think I probably told you incorrectly in the past, or maybe it changed. It should just be --party. But, if you've pulled latest and updated your npm deps, party should be on by default.

It turns out that our quota system had 2 problems. One was, it was stopping people from getting files, unexpectedly. The other was, it ate up CPU. So, we threw in the party mode to temporarily disable it. (It's a silly config name.)

Re: %AmHxnQ6gW

The system is pretty weird! It's an experiment to see how well "weird" can work. The old-school way of doing things, where there are host computers, is easy to think about. You're either on the host, or you're not. Whereas, on Patchwork, it's about who follows you.

We're still developing the tools to explain it. And, still developing the code! So -- I hope it's not too frustrating while we make progress, but thanks for joining in the weird with us.

We don't want to reintroduce hosts, because that's exactly what we're trying to get away from. But I do think that a "virtual" notion of a host -- something with the same "on" or "off" properties -- might be useful for helping us think about the network. It might take the shape of user-groups.

@dominic I bet I see what's going on here. I'm not sure why sbot.get would trigger relatedMessages, but I can see how relatedMessages would cb() twice.

Suppose you have, in your db, messages that link up to a root message you don't have. If you call relatedMessages() on the message you dont have, you'd get an error and n would be set to -1. But, the recursive related() calls would continue, and they increment n without checking if it's <0. That can lead to cb() getting called a second time.

@bobhaugen that will always be possible. The weakness with Patchwork's electron install right now is that you have to download and install the thing manually. I want there to be autoupdating.

Still figuring out the shape of scuttlebot & patchwork though -- if the new plugins project for Scuttlebot works, then I want Patchwork to be an sbot plugin

Re: %rSRsqF+Jc

You now have a full clone of the current ssbc/patchwork cosmos on your machine and can search and view all of the scuttlebot database without internet access.

Somebody put this man in sales!

I'm not sure if it connects to people automatically if you don't follow them, so the onboarding/initial setup might be a bit tricky...

When people join Pubs, they announce the address of the Pub. After seeing that announcement, you'll autoconnect to those Pubs, and to other people on your LAN.

You'll connect to peers, no matter what your relationship is with them, in the hopes of finding data you might want.

Bare with me through this technical trickery to seed your friends today

If you are on the LAN with somebody, you'll automatically download their feed. So this may not be necessary?

If autodownloading doesnt solve things for you, please describe your situation a bit more, so we can build something nicer for it!

Re: %9TnUcRh38

What will happen in patchwork if nodes have intermittent connectivity?

Patchwork's network is called a "gossip mesh," which is designed specifically for bad connectivity. If you're able to reach anybody on the network, you'll exchange data with them.

The exchange happens in the background, and can happen after you create the data. So, you can make new posts while offline, then go online and sync back up.

The result is more reliable, but can be a little unpredictable as well. If we're on a LAN together, we'll be able to keep sending each other data, even if our Internet goes down. But, if our Internet went down for 5 days, then on the 6th day, we'd send and receive 5-day-old data. So, sometimes information will lag behind.

We're still learning how much of an impact that has. So far, it's been ok. And, the nice thing is, when somebody (cough me cough) nukes their pub, the network keeps working just fine.

One of the Rojava questions is, can they do digital currency transactions in those conditions?

You can, but I would recommend that it only be attempted by people with expertise in distributed systems. An engineer that's not strongly familiar with "Eventual Consistency" and the importance of "Partial Order" could make some costly mistakes.

We're going to do our best to educate everybody about using SSB well, but that'll take some time -- so, for now, I have to just go with that recommendation.

@dust so I started reading the utopia of bureaucracy book and fell in love. Great read. Im almost at the end of chapter 1 (so I read that great intro and most of chapter 1) and I plan to read the rest.

Here's my (maybe controversial?) view: seeing as we're programmers, we're basically wielders of bureaucracy, as the software itself is bureaucracy, automated. Im not uncomfortable accepting bureaucracy as neither a negative or a positive. I've always had to remind my conservative friends that, there is no such thing as more or less regulation... just different regulation. So, Graeber was singing a tune I liked, from the get-go.

The power of bureaucracy comes from its authorship. One of Graeber's recurring points is, bureaucracy gets imposed from the top down, as an extension of structural violence. And, as a result, it's often out of touch with the reality of its systems. Wouldnt a fitting revolution be, to make bureaucracy self-defined, by the people experiencing it?

Whether that can happen or cant -- whether it should happen or shouldnt -- you must admit that the present battle between the FOSS revolution and the VC-funded industry, reflects the question: of whether the future will continue to be run by finance -- as, Graeber asserts, has occurred since we left the gold standard -- or by programmers? Thus far, theyve experienced an uneasy alliance. And with the recent belt-tightening, we're getting a reminder -- when the music stops, remember who was playing the music in the first place.

"How long can you go without an up round? I thought so."

This leaves us to ask: are we going to continue to degrade the importance of capital in software? Will the "miracle of low-cost software entrepreneurship" continue? Did it ever exist?

There's a lot of evidence that the VCs pick the winners in our industry. We need to see what happens to their unicorns, in the next 3 years. If VCs are willing to dump their "winners," then maybe there will be the collective will to dump them.

But we also need to make money -- real money -- without fighting these "market domination" battles. Otherwise, we'll never escape the orbit of finance.

@cel @dominic we were talking about making ssb-msgs.indexLinks go recursive. That complicates the rules a bit, so we'll need to figure that out.

Right now, the rules for a link is, they must be either:

  1. an ssb-ref on a toplevel attribute
  2. an object on a toplevel attribute with a .link attribute to an ssb-ref

So the question here is, what are the rules for the relation? Is .link a special case that always takes the keyname above? What would be the relation name for...

  type: 'foo',
  foo: { bar: { baz: '%...sha256' } } }

Ahh shoot! I just nuked my pub!!

What happened? Let's apply the five whys:

  1. I ran an old version of scuttlebot, and it didnt recognize my keyfile so it overwrote it with a new key in the old format.
  2. I hadnt backed up my pub's keys.
  3. I hadnt backed up my pub's keys.
  4. I hadnt backed up my pub's keys.
  5. I hadnt backed up my pub's keys.

So ate dirt

Sorry for being a bad admin. I'll generate a new keyfile and have it follow everybody again. I'll also flag the old ident.

Scuttlebot plugins

@dominic and I have been talking about making Scuttlebot plugins installable via the command-line.

This would be to allow -

  • Easy new DB features
  • Easy new apps

Like, the kvdb, ssb-names, and ssb-exporter modules would be really easy to do this way.

It would be something like

sbot install ssb-names #uses npm
sbot install

And after install they'd be in the sbot namespace

sbot kvdb.put my-namespace/stuff {"hello":"world"}
sbot names.signified bob
sbot exporter.import ./somefeed

So the lifecycle and rpc-routing would all be handled by the sbot process.

We could also make Patchwork a Scuttlebot plugin (maybe default installed?) instead of having it embed Scuttlebot

Re: %4dnYnnSm6

@dominic then suggested we set things up so the inviting user creates the private key, and publishes "hey I'm inviting a person named X with code Y to pub Z," where...

  • X is a petname of the user that's joining
  • Y is the pubkey of the invite code
  • Z is the pub that's going to host the new user

The inviter sends the invite private key (or seed) to the new user. The new user proves ownership to the pub, and then the pub publishes a "reply" to the inviter's message saying "user A accepted this invite, here they are!" where A is the pubkey of the new user.

So, that would help people distribute invites and get each other onto the network. Then, that still leaves some UI questions about how to discover people, by other means.

I'll park it here for people to offer reactions to ^ and their own suggestions

Re: %4dnYnnSm6

@cel suggested we emulate gmail's old-school invites UI. You had this widget on the sidebar saying, "you have 5 invites," and then you could grab one and send it to friends.

So, we could do that for people that have a pub. Pubs would be configured to hand them out to members, periodically, via ssb messages. They'd just show up in the feed.

Improving the invite/onboard flow

We've gotten feedback and seen ourselves that things go great for new patchworkers until an invite is used, and then it's unclear what to do.

We think part of the problem is, it's not easy to find people you want to talk to. It's also a little hard to get an invite.

So we need to put our heads together about the right flow for connecting to people.

Re: %aIWx4jBHU

I agree with @dominic and I'm not sure which I think is better (least painful). Including author id is a lot of overhead, but fetching individual messages is equally overheady, and introduces complications about fetching the profile without fetching the whole feed. It's a crummy issue.

I'll endeavor to TL;DR: since we cant create long-lived connections to everybody, this protocol adds push, and since push is a rarer event, it'll reduce overall bandwidth involved compared to short-lived pulls. I get that right?

FWIW I like threaded conversations a lot, I just didnt think they fit here. Indented threads dont do well for long back-and-forths -- after about 5 replies, the indentation gets too deep. Most of our communication is interpersonal, so we tend to have back-and-forth, while indented threads are much better for large communities that sort by upvotes (slashdot, reddit, HN).

@dust That will depend on what all you'll need to do. Writing a separate node/electron application is still viable, but involves some overhead. We're working on ssb-web-server now, so that you can write SPAs that are shared on the SSB network.

RE: CSP, it looks like ssb-web-server will have to allow unsafe-inline in order to work properly, so bookmarklets will work on those. Patchwork doesnt allow inline scripts, but if people really want bookmarklets, I can add a config option to relax that constraint. It would be better to write a backend-based script injector, though.

This HN comment brings up a really good argument about data-security:

So effectively the FBI has one giant inbox with Americans' communications in it?

That inbox will get hacked. It's only a matter of time. If thousands of federal bureaucrats have access to it, I would be very surprised if foreign intelligence agencies do not already have access to it in some capacity.

Scary stuff. People should continue to assume all systems are compromised and email is public information.

All network information is public information. We have to assume all providers (not just FBI/NSA, but the original email services) will be breached eventually.

@dominic I just did some new-user tests with party mode. Here are my observations:

  • I downloaded all messages from's 25 members within about 1 minute, and the blobs took roughly 5-7 more minutes after that. It's much, much better, but there's room to improve.
  • (RE this issue) The backend does slow down, but not immediately. I have a hunch it could be due to blob replication, but I'm not sure.
  • Based on this issue, I have a suspicion that, when there are multiple peers replicating messages, they interrupt each other by causing createWriteStream to fail validation. I found some potential evidence: if I reduce the connection limit to 1 peer, all messages download in one session; but, if I allow multiple connections at once, the download process would halt and restart with each peer.

Re: %dnmQqbxN8

Is there a convention for namespacing messages to a certain domain?

There's not. Your suggestion of app-name-vote is good.

Is there a testnet for ssb?

Unfortunately no, but there are procedures for creating test databases and feeds. See this documentation.

Any plans for integrated UIs between apps? Personally I would rather have a tab or section in the patchwork nav or even a post type in the main feed instead of a whole separate app.

So maybe a patchwork plugin instead of a separate ssb app.

We've been discussing this, and deferred a decision while we waited for community input.

Patchwork can currently integrate with applications like email does with other services: you can create posts which go in the inbox or feed. But, we do get a lot of requests for custom message-rendering, and for new UI screens. We could take some inspiration from Sublime or Atom and put in a plugin system.

My idea for this would be to define and/or describe your type in a blob and use the blob ID in the type field.

That can work; the type field was specced to be long enough for hash IDs. However, it's a little less friendly to look and query against.

I'm not yet sure how careful we have to be about type collisions, and I'm hoping that hash-IDs would be overkill. It does, however, have a nice feature, that the linked blob can document the type's schema.

The structure of the application is your choice. Web-application patterns work well on the desktop, if you're ok with using Electron, or a browser, for your frontend. Patchwork uses a typical Web SPA pattern, and shares software with its node and electron codebases (see patchwork-electron).

Scuttlebot is a database. The primary interface is the append-only log. You establish a connection using the ssb-client module (documented here), and read and append to the log using the SSB API.

Scuttlebot also has a Blobs API, which is content-hash indexed. It is mainly used to distribute files.

The blob- and log-stores are synchronized between peers in the background. The application won't handle any of the peer-to-peer interactions, as those are automated. However, you can subscribe to watch for new messages and files, and sync is often in realtime.

Here are some useful snippets:

Any streaming is handled with pull-streams. For example, here is a log-watching snippet:

pull(sbot.createLogStream({ live: true, old: false }), pull.drain(
  function (msg) { /* new message */ },
  function (err) { /* end of stream */ }

This page documents how you publish a file. The hash of the file is usually shared over the log. The receiving party then waits for the file, using this code:

var toPull = require('streams-to-pull-streams')
sbot.blobs.want(blobHash, function (err, has) {
  if (has) {
    // file-contents received, let's write it to a file

More about using Scuttlebot:

The peer-to-peer behaviors are abstracted, for the most part, and sync occurs in the background. Philosophically, this is similar to CouchDB's design.

Scuttlebot can be your main data-store, but you can use other databases with it. Embedded databases, like leveldb and sqlite, are easy to setup and configure, since they're exclusively controlled by your application.

Have a look at the ssb-msg-schemas readme to see how some common log-messages are designed. Messages can link to each other, again using content-hashes. They can link to feeds using public-key IDs, and to blobs using content-hash IDs.

We have a tutorial here and some example applications:

I'll stop here, so you can direct the conversation. If you get stuck on any task, let me know and I'll step through it.

Old idea feels fresh again. CRDT-object interfaces to scuttlebot:

var thread = new MerkleTree({ type: 'post', text: 'hello, world' })
thread.root.type == 'post'
thread.root.text == 'hello, world'
thread.append({ type: 'post', text: 'my reply' })
thread.find('.post > .post').text == 'my reply'

var votes = new RegisterMap()
votes.set(alicesId, {  value: -1, reason: 'spam' })
votes.set(bobsId, { value: 1 })
votes.count() == 2
votes.set(alicesId, { value: 0 })
votes.count() == 2

Riak uses this technique, documented here.

Re: %10JQbxUAn

The Merkle-tree is a CRDT which doesn't rely on clock consensus between peers. (It uses content hashes to create a partial order to its items.) If we don't try to collapse the tree into a linear order, then it's possible we let multiple SSB users contribute from their feeds, and still come to consensus. There'd be no overhead for this technique. There are, however, limitations to the data-structures this can support.

Re: %AZEbtLCw/

which centralisation business

To clarify: Not "an organization." Business as in, "subject-matter." Some prior discussion is in this thread. We also discussed it in our last call.

I'm not sure sbot/patchwork are trustless & roleless networks.

Agreed. It's not purely either, and the amount varies by layer.

Our recent discussion was in the context of protocol behaviors: which devices provide what behaviors, how are multiple users coordinated, how is information found, and etc. This is where we're least specialized. (Pubs are the only exception.)

If patchwork is used by people who don't use it primarily for talking about patchwork (lets be honest here)

No need to talk around that fact! That's how most of us are brought together, at the moment.

A completely trustless & roleless network is a bit like a pre-agrarian society. There's no specialization of participants, and therefore there's less opportunity to stratify. We're all hunters & gatherers.

Re: %TkPVv4gsa

When you use a pub-invite, you announce the pub on your feed with a type: pub message. So, if you invite into my pub, and then your pub, then our pubs will learn about each other (by receiving the announcements in your feed) and begin syncing with each other.

That said, it is not necessary that our pubs sync. The gossip-mesh is fully transitive. Let's say you connect to "Bob", via your pub. I'd be able to get Bob's messages in the following path:

Me -> -> you -> your pub -> Bob

Re: %10JQbxUAn

@keks I can answer both questions.

The protocol limitation is, lack of global knowledge. Github gives you a guarantee that, if somebody registers with GH and posts an issue, then GH will show you that issue. Patchwork/SSB can not give you that guarantee; if the person is outside of your social circle, you won't see the issue.

Possible solutions:

  • A bot which crawls the SSB network, looking for issues related to your project and "retweeting" them.
  • A bot which you send the issue to, which then "retweets" it.

The plugin system was a brief experiment, prior to Patchwork's rewrite. We talk a lot about bringing it back, but we're unsure if we should prioritize it.

You should talk to @cel in detail about this, because he's all about that life. ( @cel maybe you should go forward with the issue tracker, despite the protocol limitations? if you're feeling it, then starting work there will just push us to solve those problems )

RE: what goes in Patchwork, I have the same question. Unless we decide to commit to plugins (in a big way) I think the answer is, make it an independent piece of software. At worst, the integration between patchwork and gittlehub would be identical to that btwn email and github. Gittlehub events can show up in your feed/inbox, and send you out to gittlehub. We can work together on it to make it swag.

Re: %B6EZ3CXwN

If we did peer-detection and nat-punching, peers could directly transmit files globally, and a pub wouldnt need to know about the blob (though this requires mutual uptime)

I'm quite sure private content will exceed the current 5mb limit and I think that needs to go at some point for public as well.

Blobs need much more sophistication in general. We're closing in on it.

Yeah, when a blob-link is detected in a message, a scuttler will start asking its peers for it with blobs.want(hashid). If found, it'll download the file and that's that.

Re: %MbFIpgUP7

I'm 95% sure the heavy backend usage comes from over-eager gossip scheduling. When we wrote the networking code, we intended to only run 2 active connections at once. It seems to do more like 10, and it frequently disconnects and reconnects those connections, causing security handshakes and various gossip behaviors to trigger.

@pfraze %e6acoehvEleVeCWX5ELdCPJCepagQdDQCAe6/xxCTBk=.sha256
Re: %MbFIpgUP7

@keks that's interesting, we should look into that.

Threads and feeds are assembled from individual messages every time you load a page, which means there's a lot of redundant round-trips to disk. If we process threads once and store, I think we can cut out some of the fat.

This sprint (ending tomorrow) was all UI updates. (2.6 should land tonight.) The next 2-week sprint will be performance and bug fixes. I might have to overhaul the backend a little bit... but I'm hoping not.

Just like Bitcoin, if Ethereum is never practical, it's still going to be wildly interesting to watch. Somebody made a pyramid-scheme game called King of the Ether Throne. But, it's now got some kind of bug.

In any case, few people recognized that Microsoft had a harder time in developing Windows than Apple did with the Mac, since Apple controlled all the hardware its software ran on. Windows had the ambition to support “device independence,” which meant–in theory–it could support any display adapter or printer.

The Secret Origin of Windows


At that point Windows was no longer considered the company’s star project, as it had become a bit of an embarrassment. Even internally there were doubts among some in the company that Windows would ever ship. Also, because Ballmer had already burned though four product managers to try to get there–people who now had been either reassigned or were no longer at Microsoft–the product was developing a reputation for career death.

The linked discussion is about tools for team/human resource management. Per the discussion, it's useful to have some structure to profile information, so you can query against it. It's also important to have user groups/lists. Concerns raised: profile taxonomies tend to be application-specific, which is a challenge to generality. Users also need access-control over their information.

  • Make the feed only show channels you "follow." Then bots can use a specific channel, and we can choose whether to hide that clutter.

Because it's contextual. (I take back the word "trust" because that has security implications.) The question is, who says you should autodownload a blob: the publisher or the receiver? You might have a different preference than the publisher.

For instance, App A (Gittlebutt) may be watching the log for git repos it wants to sync down. App B (Patchwork) may be watching for pictures it wants to sync down.

Message hints may be useful if the publisher and the receiver are using the same apps, though

Should posts that are in your inbox be removed from the activity feed? Seems like that'd be a good idea. Deduplicate a bit.

Re: %9ZxA1GKLQ

The pub needs to see a message linking to the blob first. It will then want the blob itself, and rehost it so that you can get it.

This is why PMs dont allow attachments, right now. If your pubs cant see the blob-link, they wont sync the file.

Patchwork 2.5.0 published.

  • Inbox now clears out read items, putting them behind an "archived" button
  • Left and right navs are updated, and now include collapsable menus
  • Readds the feed-view, in the form of the Activity Stream

The flow is setup so that you do work in your inbox (your priority queue), and then you can go into the activity stream and channels to discover new content, and potentially pull that content into you inbox (by watching the threads).

Will now shift gears to bugfixing again.

Re: %sPNiyJPU/

This is the thread for which I dont have the root, but I can respond to what @keks is saying here:

We just need to debug this, and it's on our priority list. (In fact hopefully it'll be quite soon, after I finish up some last UI stuff.) My current theory is that we just need to do less gossiping; it's happening way too frequently right now.

I've noticed the same power drain, it sucks.

Here's a fun one: @keks just mentioned me on a thread, but I dont have the root message of that thread. It's not synced to me yet.

His mention added the thread to my inbox, but then the thread doesn't render because the root is AWOL.

What should happen, there? I guess something similar to the "missing post" UI, right? Missing posts are really... really gross.

Re: %fqQvn2qHo

@dominic right, we cant stop a user from sharing a feed between applications anyway

It might be a bit like plugins vs separate apps. If two apps share a feed, they're sort of plugging into each other.

@dominic ok I actually think I've found a solution here. Check out the inbox-management branch of patchwork. The Activity Stream and Channels are discovery for public messages. Inbox is PMs, bookmarked threads (now called "watched"), and mentions. I'm next going to add a feature to "watch channels," which will cause new messages in the channel to auto-bookmark.

In this setup, the inbox is now your primary interface. You explore in the channels to find content that you might want to add to your inbox.

Right, those are common misconceptions about crowdfunding. It is nothing but a bump.

Kickstarter's not inevitable because it's easy; it's inevitable because if we're not capable of running a successful campaign within 2 years, then we've completely failed to achieve a presence.

We'll need to talk to customers to know what our business model is, but our predictions remain that it'll be paid pub services and/or enterprise onsite services.

@mixmix well that depends on our target. I'd expect to aim for 200k US or so, and if we blow anything more than 10k in marketing then we have a real problem controlling our wallets.

You're right that Kickstarters are about producing publicity and traction. After we've validated a first niche market, and are ready to expand out of it, we'll need to run a marketing campaign whether it's a Kickstarter or not. But it's pretty inevitable that the campaign will be a crowdfund, since that's keeping in the spirit of this project.
