We’ve had enough of digital monopolies and surveillance capitalism. We want an alternative world that works for everyone, just like the original intention of the web and net.
We seek a world of open platforms and protocols with real choices of applications and services for people. We care about privacy, transparency and autonomy. Our tools and organisations should fundamentally be accountable and resilient.
There is not only a list of reasons why services gets centralized but
also a list of questions what decentralize service to use instead.
I think it would be futile to consent about a decentralize service only
on this list.
I think all of us would like to try out patchwork but would we move from
googlegroups (which I really don't like to use) to $decentralizedservice?
I think the biggest problem for now is to decide which service to choose
instead of a mainstream one.
A network that would greatly support a working group is Retroshare. I
tried it but I never felt comfortable to add unknown friends to my
network so that I was isolated. Using Retroshare for Decentralize would
be a good kickstart to join the network and really use it for a reason.
