Whew, nice recovery! I'm familiar with the traditional use of sage stemming from Japanese imageboard culture. I'm also familiar with the concept of trying to rationalize an embarrassing gaffe by lying about your motivation or attributing misunderstanding to the other party.

With W3C now folding to DRM and the web already being crushed under the weight of JS I think we need a discussion.

What are some alternatives to the web? I remember GNUNET implements something like websites. Basically I think we should ditch web browsers all together. BBS? Gopher?

If used with Tor, IPFS seems promissing.
But, if we "restart" the internet, I think we should go to the way of distributed meshnet. In this case, I don't know any project that still alive doing this. My hope is that, one day, someone will ressurect Netsukuku with current best-practices on crypto and formal methods, but I don't think it will happen.

>>11207
misunderstands the difference between the web and the internet

The objections of the EFF and security people and pretty much everyone who isn't a corporate shill to EME are understandable and quite reasonable. Their dislike of EME being implemented in browsers is also quite correct. BTW, EME is *already* implemented in every major browser.

But you people are acting like this is going to be the end of the web or something. Here are some facts that you can take along with your Zyprexa:

1. People hosting websites will not have to use DRM. Endchan, for example, will continue to chug along as always, unless odilitime decided to implement DRM to access some Endchan content.
2. Browsers that will never implement EME (links, lynx, eww) will continue to work as they always have with non-DRMed content on the web.

If you look at e.g. the editors behind the EME recommendation, you'll see who's pushing it:

>Netflix, Microsoft and Youtube
These are not the only problem. Youtube is not just for "normies". There's lots of good content on youtube.
As you said, most people will not give a shit about DRM, so most of the content will still be posted on youtube. If youtube-dl stops working then where we will get videos? Other platforms will probably adopt DRM too, such as Vimeo.

But, again, that's not the major issue I see. People can start to use DRM to lock the whole website. For example, if your adblocker is blocking some piece of javascript, it will automatically block the entire website. This will destroy adblockers and everyone will be forced to see nasty ads. Not too long for google adopt it, then the entire web will not work anymore without javascript. Think about it.

>If youtube-dl stops working then where we will get videos? Other platforms will probably adopt DRM too, such as Vimeo.
It's unlikely that platforms like Youtube and Vimeo will employ DRM for every video. Uploaders will probably be given the ability to enable or disable it for their accounts or for each of their videos.

VEVO, for example, will probably have it enabled on all of their videos, because they don't want you downloading them. They want you to have to watch them on Youtube to see their ads.

But VEVO is normie shit.

>People can start to use DRM to lock the whole website.
They can do that now. The W3C's recommendation changes nothing in that regard.

>For example, if your adblocker is blocking some piece of javascript, it will automatically block the entire website.
That happens now. Patreon won't load for me so I can see how many betas have been suckered into subsidizing the lifestyle of this month's SJW fail whale. archive.is doesn't work for me because of their Cloudflare settings, which require js.

>What transaction isn't? Are you talking about conning people out of some pocket money, (((anon)))?

You can't have any anonymity if you don't have any way to make anonymous exchanges. You can do anonymous exchange right now, with paper money. Paper money allow "black" market, markets out of any state control. For exemple, you buying something for you friend is anonymous, and is de facto in the "black market". It allows anyone to work without the need of any contract.
It's the most basic need. With every transaction being traceable, you're done. You're just done. If they decide to deny you the right to possess a bank account, then you'll not being able to even buy from the most basic store. The whole economy will be controlled and monitored. But I guess that you trust your government and you bank to not do any arm against you, isn't it ((((((((anon))))))))?
Saying that it profits the criminals is monstrously retarded, since the biggest criminals are the banks, and the companies not paying taxes by using tax heavens. It's not the little faggot drug dealer. Moreover, since it's the state that control the drug traffic, don't count on the fact that they'll track them through bitcoin transaction. Police don't have enough people anyway to do this job. That's why it's actually the banks who try to detect credit card fraud (under ~1000/2000 euros), and not the police.

>The only thing that does is prevent hoarding and even more egregious speculation.
What? You're talking about monetary creation? That's the process that build paper money, that makes it remain on pure debt. The dollars paper money you have in your pocket is a debt upon the central bank. The money who's on your bank account is a debt on the bank. Nothing have any value, and it allows bank to create money out of nowhere. Well, not from nowhere, but from continuous inflation. Bitcoin will not solve anything. I pretty much think that it'll worsten the problem. I highly think that today's crypto will not be the future crypto used in global market (when the world will have only one global market). Maybe the blockchain will be private. Maybe they want a decentralised money to make it detached from any nation (since every nation will disapear, it's pretty logic) in apparence, but totaly controlled by the one setting it up.
The whole economy is immoral. Bitcoin will not, but confirm everything that has been destroyed since the founding of modernity.
You truly must be a redditor level faggot using his little mac to think that bictoin is a good thing. That's the same kind of guy who find it totaly normal to implant an RFID chip in their hand, or soon a neurolace. They're the one finding totaly normal to buy modern car which are connected to the manufacturer, manufacturer that can control the car, lock it, stop it etc...

About the RFID, no, I don't think that it's particulary what is reffered to be the mark of the beast. I think that it's nearly nothing, especially when you look at the neurolace, and what are the tech possibilities that would be available in the close future. Honestly, the private corps already know everything about everyone. All i'm saying is that it's a very very dark future that is being releaved as the days advance. And it's certainly technology which is the conductor. It's like always: a trade between yourself, a piece of your soul and your privacy, for more comfort, social acceptance etc..

Moreover, you haven't read my post to the end: I'm saying that the future crypto currency will be far more controlled than what it is now. Every bank are testing their own crypto.
Don't think that banks will diseapear with the founding of a global market based on an unique cryptocurrency.

So why don't you, like fucking everyone since the night of times, purpose a paid subscription?
You know what internet is like? A free to play. First to make it extremly accessible, while taking money from the customer who don't even know they's one. It's a shit economical system, based on ignorance.
People still think that google, facebook is free. Just ask anyone how they win billions and are at the top of tech industry, most people will not even be able to answer (or something vague like "ads?").

We need to stop with this. "If it's free, then you're the product."
All I see is that a lot of people actually started their blog for fun, to share with people, then they discovered that they could make a shit tone of money on it, so greed came on, and they try to only live on that. That's not how reality works. You can't live only on your shit little blog, or on a little youtube video. Just look at how newspaper use to work in the past. It's the same thing. It's not because I share some good inside with peoples that I'm gonna create an entire newpaper on this idea, and only live on that.
I need something serious. A team of writers, a shit tone of work, talent. Not just random internet luck of fame.

That's the root of the problem. Too easy for random people to get too much money. Just look who're at the top of youtube, or other medias. That's ridiculous. It's certainly, certainly not a meritocracy. Even the top youtuber agree with that, that they're were they are with only luck, and that people with less success have more talent than them.

I don't think it's an internet issue, I think it's an human issues. Nikola Tesla, Kurt Godel and many others, died poor and fucked, for example, before the internet existed. The people that really constructed computing, like Konrad Zuze, never appear on mainstream, just the fancy Steve Jobs that did nothing of good.
It's how our primitive thinking always end up with the same patterns. People don't like to extend their thoughts, therefore, shit content will be produced to keep the circus running.
People like to think how things "might look like" and not how it really is, therefore they numb themselves with myths.

It's a problem of economical model, and government that push for free market, but without doing its job to eliminate monopolies.
You should actually get back in time, and understand that everything was sold with the "source code". You washer was sold with the manual describing everything about it, every pieces used with reference to allow you to repare you machine.
Today, everything is made breakable, and the most complicated to not allow you to do any repair, any modification.
Even though software is a special case, because you NEED the source code if you want any security, but you don't want to easely give out your source code to every one, it pretty much followed the same path. Basically, anything closed source is backdoored from my point of view. I'm not even talking about the official stuff, like microsoft who gently tell you that it tapes everything. Or apple that trace everyone's move.

A mechanical system can't be close source, because you still can "easely" reverse engineer the process by simply opening your car, if you know what you're doing.

So no, it's not that black and white. If you have a bullshit job, it's the problem of an economical model based only on an all mighty market, and not a market serving the actual people.
Free market without regulation create this kind of none sense, because the goal of any companies if not to serve any general interest, but egoist profit.

You're not the only one who have a partly immoral job, it's pretty much general. So please, don't say that we need close source because you need a job. That's in no where a justification. A lot of industries had to close their door, letting the workers without any job because of technological progress.

Your way of looking into film is realistic and I'm personally against that. The film is not meant to be absolutely realistic (although it has to have a suspension of disbelief if you want people to understand it). Watching a film is just like watching yourself in the mirror, it's a projection and an interpretation.
That said, I'm it was technically correct and, yes, I too find the "love as a dimension" idea a bit too new age, but from my perspective, it is a very good movie. Good screenwriting, good aesthetic, good soundtrack.

Avalon (2001). It's a very powerful movie. Like Matrix, it questions the perceived reality created by human mind. But, unlike Matrix, it does not creates this new "reality". The author let's you imagine what it would be to live in a world more real than that we live now.
I personally don't think that's the case, but it's a good movie.
Like other film such as Truman Show, Inception and Matrix, this one will give you a shift about the way you think.

>the leaders should also have no right to privacy.
>Bullshit. The point is not if the leaders of these corporations have privacy or not, the point is that everyone lost the privacy.
>For me, this movie is a clear communist message.

The book ended with the main character too far gone in drinking the company kool-aid and she turned on the black guy, betrayed him, and supported censorship and ushering in a dystopia without resisting her leaders at the company. I see the film as a more morally grey ending. Her actions resulted in a kind of communist mob rule rather than a dictatorship, and after the film ends there's still a possibility people like her parents will rebel once they see the bullshit in the e-mails of her superiors. No such possibility exists in the book, because the monsters have already won.
