We've just published a post about our participation at the NDN Seminar (Named Data Networking). It packs 24 very inquisitive questions and answers about #IPFS & #libp2p https://research.protocol.ai/blog/2020/ndn-seminar-a-high-level-overview-of-the-interplanetary-file-system/ We hope you enjoy it …

This is a fantastic compilation of a few questions about IPFS that will help anyone understand the protocol more in-depth with ease. For experts and for beginners, it’s a good read!

It’s much better than my previous system where I had a script that just copied the dotfiles over. This way they’re symlinked so the changes will be reflected with ease. I’m happy with it.

I just updated my website’s API to support splitting a text into multiple tweets if it’s longer than 280 characters. In addition, in case everything fits one tweet, I won’t be adding a link to my website’s original post… for now. Eventually, I may add it again or remove them at all even if the text doesn’t fit only one tweet. Let’s see… The next step is to also post pictures here.

Telegram wanted to launch a cryptocurrency, but now they stopped that experiment because a US court stopped them and the US has too much power they rather didn’t want to feel.I am writing this post to officially announce that Telegram’s active involvement with TON is …

That is really sad to hear. Decentralization is a huge part of the future of the Internet for many reasons. Not relying on centralized services is important to build a web of trust, of freedom and transparency. It’s really unfortunate to see how the US can have such a powerful impact on other countries’ citizens…
