Kind of interesting. May be worth an article:

Is it as unique as it claims to be? It could at least be listed as part of a category of things.

Check out this 2017 episode of Planet Money about how Feeding America solved a local knowledge problem with its own internal market. This may be interesting to leftists as well, as they needed special market rules to make sure the needs of the poor were met. There's a socialist in this story.

Highlighting the potential harmony between the #prepper and #freesoftware movements, something I picked up on a while ago and have wanted to express. (Written with a #libertarian audience in mind but not exclusively for them.)

@autogestion It's one of those cool concepts in search of a purpose... Kind of like Mastodon haha.

I'm not sure I see the benefit of using activitypub for this when (as one commenter said) it's already a lot like git. And indeed the entire site is already on git (no longer a database) and licensed MIT/CC0 if anybody cares to fork it.

A distributed git does sound like a good idea, though. & maybe activitypub for edit history metadata? Also I was thinking of putting this on IPFS.

Love the site but hate the design (other than the logo)?

Always appreciate help with the site. (Just make a quick mockup first to make sure we're on the same page, to save your time.) Overall, I'd like to keep the design simple.

@zen Some contracts are purely in the form of an exchange of tokens right? Those you can prove.

Something I wrote for a libertarian group I roll with:

I haven't shared these yet on social media. Overall I think my goal with these is to poke at fellow libertarians.

Jaden Smith and friends respond to the continued need for clean water in Flint Michigan with a mobile water filtration system.

Food suppliers and restaurants are committing to transitioning to cage-free for their eggs, in large part due to public pressure and consumer preference. Hellmann's mayo is already cage free.

American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance. You've seen it. It's a voluntary certification of dental products verified with laboratory tests. Since 1931.

Could use some more bolstering (or criticism) of the points here. It's just hard because almost everything written about them is from the dental industry which they deeply involved with anyway. Not much in the order of historical documents out there.

Examine.com - Helping consumers of nutritional supplements make informed choices. They tell you what the nutrients actually do, with direct citations to the scientific literature. Big focus on neutrality: No ads, no partnerships, no investors.

@gunkslinger Just know that I was asking mainly for people who are knee deep in this crypto stuff already and may have had examples off the top of their head. So no worries if you don't know any!

At any rate, thanks a lot for your interest in the site!

Liberdon

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
