On a serious note, me too and we're gradually trying to build with that in mind.
You should take a look at the dat project.
Totally agree. We can all support Beaker!😃
What would be nice is for those who wish to decentralize, dev.to becomes a peer tracker, and everyone connects via peers. Accounts are identified by a UUID, and a GPG private key on your device to sign the message, and you can post direct to dev.to API or via other peers to give a layer of abstraction.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
