@donpdonp You wintering in SE Asia again by any chance?
@acasajus I haven't used that one. My point was that you can find basically all of the pieces in place and standardized protocol-wise, whereas with AP you'd have to standardize from scratch for a ton of things.
This blog post for remote-work newbies also contains some useful tips for more experienced remoties: https://24ways.org/2018/thriving-as-a-remote-worker/
@acasajus I think XMPP makes much more sense for that. Especially because almost all of those things are already specified in XEPs.

@jasper Nothing in what your're saying makes any sense regarding the core of the issue. it's almost as if you want to pack as many non-sequiturs in the converation as you possibly can, merely in order to quickly communicate all your political ideology. It has nothing to do with the actual point in question. I'm going to mute you now. Good bye!
@forteller An interesting idea, brought up in Daniel Suarez's latest book "Change Agent", is a kind of bio-coin, based on some kind of bio-informatics. Maybe in the future we could e.g. compete by proving storage of CO2 or something. (Just wildly imagining things here for a second.)
@forteller ... for that to work, the puzzle has to be the same for everyone, so we cannot use a dynamic question/program, which folding @ home would be.
@forteller It's not doing nothing. It's securing the ledger's integrity. Energy is just the most universal form of required investment we have in the world. The idea is to make attacks simply too expensive, because everything else is just a political solution, which is always prone to human corruption (as it has been since fungible money is a thing).
However, that means it only has to be expensive enough so no single entity can afford a failing attack. And mining is not infinitely profitable.
@feld Not sure how production security is relevant to easily run local apps in containers, but OK. Glad you could solve your issue.
A friendly place for tooting. Run by the Kosmos peeps.
