Restarting from scratch the whole computer stack is not possible in a foreseeable future. The thing is even if at the processor level things are broken (heartbleed, et al) not all processors are broken (RISC-V?).

I can not imagine things to change overnight, even if **some** people size the means of production. Like you wrote the whole (software) system is built around domination. Sizing production facilities will, in my opinion, change the people in power, not the system. In particular, it will not change people's minds Earth-wide.

FOSS was a step in a good direction. Because the system is the way it is. FOSS has put another oligarchy in power and created new monsters, but those kind of monsters existed before FOSS. The good thing about FOSS is that it exhibits, once more, that **together we are stronger**.

One can swap a processor with another, given enough work.

One needs to give some existence to an alternative system, and that should be done at every level of the stack.

edit: that should be done at *every* level of the stack

@theruran

@stman I understand. I was boosting @zig post for visibility since I think it's important to hear different angles on the topic.

yes, we need a decentralized economic system to support the decentralized information system development and stewardship. to the extent possible, these should be designed together.

I sent you a DM earlier about definitions. Lemme know and we can iterate on some things.

Peace!

Hello,

I introduce to you @mouloud who he is more aware of philosophical implication and sometime technical details of the actual the (sort of) system we have been working on.

I forward a very **serious** question from him, since the convo was not federated on his instance yet:

What is the point of money or crypto-money?

@zig @stman @theruran @emsenn

My question is indeed what is the point of money whether it is crypto or not. I know a little about bitcoin (proof-of-work: evil for climate so far) and Ethereum (algorithmic contracts, good idea as far as I understand, but still PoW).

The idea of a single source of thruth is neat, and would be useful to avoid lies or fakes in a distributed system.

@zig @stman @theruran @emsenn

Money used to be used a means of exchange something of value for the rich that is gold. That by itself shows how dubious money seems, because gold is almost useless in practice. Nowadays, money has mostly only virtual value, because people trust the system, and the people in power somewhat trust each other and they agree through the market on exchange rates.

@zig @stman @theruran @emsenn

Anyway, take of instance "carbon budget" of countries, it can be exchanged for money. And they that "carbon budget" can be used to produce new products.

With the money, a low carbon footprint country can bargain to buy some products.

During this exchange the low carbon footprint might have lost value because conditions of the exchanges and the dubbed added value to the products.

@zig @stman @theruran @emsenn

It is far fetched, but to me their should be no money, hence probably no crypto-money.

A single-source of truth is helpful, but I am not convinced it is necessary, and is certainly not necessary in a fully cooperative system with no evil.

Thanks including me in the convo.

@mouloud Hello. Welcome to these informal crypto-anachist related talks and think tank.

Ecology is one of the key "constraints" we have for long added into our work. It has many implications, in many technical fields we work on, on manufacturing processes, on the fight against programmed obsolescence, on electrical consumption, matters (rare ir not) usage, repartition, and ultimately on economical models.
