re: A Major Announcement for the DEV Community VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Although it’s a great April fools joke, it presents a seriously good idea:

For privacy concerned folks like me who enjoy the power to control ones data and connections, the concept of a decentralized option for dev.to intrigues me.

 

My sense of humour is slightly underdeveloped, so could someone verify that this is an April's Fool joke?

 
 

On a serious note, me too and we're gradually trying to build with that in mind.

 
 

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.
