If you missed it, the recording is up on the site.
Heads up: short live stream in about 5 minutes to give you a technical development update on Place/Small Web/etc. Will give studio link also if you have questions, thoughts, etc.
@tobykurien Hey Toby, thanks. Aware of + was initially very excited about it many years ago. However, while superficially similar, we’re very different. We stand opposed to—and critical of—surveillance capitalism instead of legitimising it, working for/within it, and looking to interoperate with it. For a political analogy, they’re more neoliberal/centrist whereas we’re more socialist/anarchist. (And they made it clear they think we’re full of shit, don’t know what we’re doing, and will fail.)
Also, heads up, we’re probably going to move to doing a Small is Beautiful stream every month instead of once a week.
It’s just too disruptive to my coding.
I might do a more frequent short technical stream just to report on my ongoing work on Place (not ready for use: https://github.com/small-tech/place/tree/esm)
Small is Beautiful
If you missed today’s live stream, you can watch the recording here:
Live in a little under half an hour… What is the “public stack” and why do we need it? (I mean, we have companies like Facebook and Google that give us everything we need for free anyway, right?) ;)
(Have your webcam/headphones ready if you want to join us in the studio.)
I make Small Tech.
