What if #ProjectKobold was actually a browser in it's own right, but instead of browsing the web, you browse a web of 2D platformer or topdown environments.
A playable web, where we can meet and talk to others browsing. And possibly with a privacy mode, where you're in your own instance of everywhere you go (that is, not connected to the server, just exploring the "site").
I've just been told about the Briar Project, which seems pretty awesome. If their approach could be extended with... ● multi-device / multi-node identities ● webserver based nodes for bridging to the classical web - mostly aimed at all those who don't need absolute security
Given those two (admittedly huge) extensions to Briar's model, and some Mastodon-level (or better) UX, I think this could replace facebook nicely.
I really should put some time into writing for decentweb.eu
Although my recent speculation about the audience had me kinda at a loss. Do I target "casuals" who've no interest in the working of social media, but still need the emancipation that distribution brings? Or do I focus on people already here who are just confused and/or unknowing about how it all works?
