We can do push notifications when we have PWA or native app. I mean browser push notifications, AFAIK it's enough to add a service worker for this, no need for full blown PWA.

Email notifications could work like on any other service - choice from notify immediately/once a day/once a week plus some kind of delay if push notifications also enabled - so that if user reacted to the push then no need to send email.

I think nothing will ever replace email after more than 50 years of success :) nostr is a good idea, but there was jabber, then xmpp, then matrix, mastodon and gazillion other decentralized networks and protocols. Only few of them succeeded, actually those that provide service that nobody else provide (like tor and bitcoin). And at the same time centralized messengers like WhatsApp and then Telegram had a huge success, mainly because of rapid development and great UX/UI.

That's sad =(. It also looks like what Vida.page do for Twitter DMs. Btw, did you thought about make it as a SaaS that connect's to your GMail it manages email without need to install the app?

This is truly amazing article. What place do you think an attention should take in value-enabled web? Should it be purchasable? It reminds me an old Bill Gates idea to pay for sending emails to fight spam. At those time I though that it's completely horrible, but now I think it's really the way how it should be done.

It would, so we would need zero-knowledge proof from some oracle that confirms that data provider is trustworthy without revealing actual data owner.

Yeah, it's a good question, we have a similar problem with Donate4.Fun. May be you should require more tasks to be done - like post a question, answer something, etc.

Okay. You have a withdraw limit 50k sats that is pretty high and an initial amount (3k or something), if I deposit sats up to 50k will I be able to withdraw all my sats afterwards?

Only if you pay with it for other services. I have a lot of wallets too, but actively use only one.

I'm asking about range, not an exact amount, and it's your hot wallet balance, not your savings, so I think it's totally fine to ask such a question. You are right that it's like as "how much cash is in your pocket approximately"? It tells nothing about your welfare or anything, just how much you could spend instantly.

Yep, it was a misclick and it's impossible to edit/remove post

This is a bit strange because of both click-factor and link-factor are user-behavior based factors, the difference is that links to webpages are posted by users much rarely than users search for the same webpages, and, moreover, click-factor provides a relation information between search query the page, and links do not. So, in my opinion, PageRank is a good tool to make initial draft of ranking algorithm and as soon as you have enough auditory you should use user behavior data as much as possible, but it's a classic chicken-and-the-egg problem. What do you think about buying user data from companies that collect it or directly from users willing to sell it?

I far as I know Google as well as other search engines stopped to use PageRank like 10 years ago (or significantly lowered this factor weight), because it's pretty easy to fake.

Good intention, but web search works well only if you already have A LOT OF users to train it's ranking algorithm on their data. So I don't believe that general web search is possible this way, and to make it possible we need, as community, in a first place start sharing our browsing histories (anonymized of course) to some public service, so that projects like this could use it to make a good algorithm.

But anyway thank you for this link, I will monitor their progress too.

Search engine is a tool that converts super-decentralized web to a hyper-centralized inverse index (that fits on a single server in an ideal case), and also collects and analyzes all it's users search sessions to rank search results better. I mean that search engines is more like the opposite of what decentralization usually means and how it usually works. And I don't believe that effective decentralized search is possible on a current level of technical progress.

It's closed source and, may be I'm wrong, but it looks like a proxy that uses or mixes results from other search engines.

If they make decentralized recommendation system or search engine I would be impressed, but now... It's just a hype.

Telegram integration is planned, but

  • Telegram is used mostly from mobile devices or desktop app, so we can't integrate using browser extension (only with Telegram web UI, but it's auditory is very small)
  • there are existing services like https://t.me/lntxbot so what could we provide besides what they already do?
