What’s that? Have over 220 people, projects, and organisations signed the web0 manifesto since last night?

They sure have! 🎉

web0.small-web.org

@ARCONITE Sorry, yeah, it does require that the site uses TLS.

What’s your site running on?

@aral all static content, generated from gemtext. self hosted web server deal.

@ARCONITE @aral hey there! You need to have a TLS certificate to sign this, but also you should because it makes your website more secure against some attacks.

Check out certbot.eff.org/ to set up HTTPS on your NGINX server. It's free and it only takes a few minutes.

@ariel @aral we have a self signed certificate only. same as our gemini site. figure the same TOFU thing can apply. plain http is fine otherwise for our uses.

@aral Oh I just see this (and signed of course). Strenght, courage and wisdom for this new year ;)

@aral Why require TLS to sign? This feels absurd, not every site needs TLS 🤔

@aral I don't understand why mentioning some libertarianism there even. politics has nothing to do with technologies. theese are orthogonal things. as a developer I stand against blockchain, nft, any gamifications and many more bullshit in web. but I nave nothing against libertarians because their ideas have nothing to do with web or anything else in software.

@aral sorry, but I don't see a text I'm about to sign, is it just the phrase "web0 is web3 without all the corporate right-libertarian Silicon Valley bullshit" which is to be signed?

@aral actual manifesto seems to be missing and it’s just showing the signatures

@miggyb That _is_ the whole manifesto.

You don’t need to write War and Peace to draw a line in the sand and extend a middle finger ;)

@aral oh! There was a longer writeup somewhere about “decentralized” not meaning “one database copied everywhere” and I think it was on that page before. I might be confused though 😅

@miggyb It’s something I say often but it was never on that page, no :)

@aral
That's preposterous.
These new technologies atw definitely based news for freedom and anonymity and life on Earth in general, but I don't think they definitively have root in libertarianism, or conservatism ('right').

@aral
I do agree, however, that they're ALL technologies of Silicon Valley B.S. .

We can all get by with HTTP (not HTTPS), and simple HTML. Just never do financial transactions online. Done and done.

Make a pact like that, and I'd definitely consider it.
