Nice summary of the small web by @soapdog: twitter.com/soapdog/status/130

One implication: in the vein of being the change you want to see in the world, all us 'enlightened' folks need to play with a lot more bespoke browsers and user agents and protocols. It's the only way to carve out an oasis in the desert of monopolies and winner-takes-all.

I recently replaced the link to my email everywhere on my website with one to this 'contact' page: akkartik.name/contact

@akkartik @soapdog Great thread! Bookmarked it (mirrored on Nitter) for testing Rhapsode & Haphaestus!

Relatedly I have my own talk on this topic: rhapsode.adrian.geek.nz/smallw

@alcinnz @akkartik @soapdog Thanks Adrian for the nice talk. I didn't know that WebRTC is ~2.3 million lines of code! That is a lot!

@vu3rdd Yup, I just double checked! 2,340,490 to be exact.

I must say, when I skimmed that code it really struck me how much of GStreamer's broader scope it covered...

@akkartik @soapdog “Sparkles USER AGENCY: Browsers should unlock user agency by offering rich interactive environments for tweaking the user's experience. The browser should be more like Smalltalk and less like a settop box.”

Aww yeaahh

@akkartik @soapdog oh hello fellow Tilde member! That contact page sounds like a great idea. I'll do that when I refactor my webpage to use a simpler theme
