Yeah, I need to fix the IPFS links in my footer. A dev from Protocol reached out and let me know they should be all lowercase CID’s so that the error you’re seeing doesn’t happen.

There’s actually some stuff in the world to make big social sites possible on IPFS. Right now I think the main bottleneck is the speed in which your request traverses the network looking for the right bit of content.

Once pubsub gets officially folded into the main network, it should be relatively easy to make things like chat apps or social sites or anything else that relies on dynamic content.

That all paired with stuff like OrbitDB are gonna make that transition easier.

Good topic for another blog article!
