I wonder if I use Dat or any other decentralized filesharing, can I then expect Google to
take care of my backup:)
I for some reason thought that if I run it in the Electron app, Google can't get to this content. How does it get it?
Hm, didn't know the content from #ssb can be found on Google.
You can also follow a tutorial for complete beginners where you start with a game and then at the end build your first mobile app. Here's the link http://app.wizardamigos.com/
Or you can checkout list of free resources we gathered in our community for learning the basics of JS, HTML and CSS :) In a modular way. No big frameworks, Pure JS <3
All free. Open source. Zero budget stuff
But doesn't work... :(
What wallet would you recommend these days? I got recommendations for blockchain.info and Copay. Are things you mention above still what you use today or did you switch?
Do you use Bitcoins as investment or to lower the costs (exchange fees etc.) while traveling. I would try both (by investment I mean like 500 eur, I'm poor :)). Should I use 2 wallets?
We plan to build the skill/lesson tree, open source and forkable. We need entrepreneurs/clients putting money on tasks (if no one, than at least we can outsource).
The client or the clients representative should choose from a variety of options.
Either putting the task for auction or round robin or giving it directly to trusted ppl.
The point is, that whoever does the task should do it 100% transparent in the open and be always allowed to outsource to more sub-contractors.
Also, there needs to be a rule how those contributors share and if any dependencies are used, then how much payment is passed on to the dependencies.
So basically the difference with classic cooperative is that we don't co-own same shares, divide revenue on equal parts, but instead use this tool (platform/skill tree) and get paid revenue shares according to the contract (contributor, dependencies (libraries, lessons/skill tree, mentorship) etc.)
Platforms a la Uber and singular outfits are 2 extremes of a continuum. We are aiming for something in the middle. Maybe we could describe it as a network of singular outfits that create something similar to a platform. Everyone can have multiple roles: learner, mentor and client/entrepreneur/indie hacker
We tried to describe the mechanics here, maybe it needs more refinement or it has to start happening and then we can see and evaluate and pivot in practice
The cool thing is that slaves in this story co-own the platform and everything is 100% transparent and we all work with same stack - open source hyper modular JS only.
@mixmix Exactly. These what I am talking about are actual experiments. And to make more of them, we need more projects :) Like everyone, right :)
But I am thinking maybe this learning P2P platform could be the way to get projects in. Because learners know people, we all get more credibility, while we do marketing we actually don't spend for some ads or spam people, but rather create learning content etc.
What is your strategy for getting new projects?
@Sybil So true about best gender ratio. In Taiwan we had even more women on some of the meetups :)
But, I didn't understand what you mean by direct profit in education and mentoring. We are not aiming for that. Are more thinking about creating an army of same stack warriors/ninjas who can earn while they learn. But those who help them by creating lessons can also be rewarded with a small fee from whatever they learn from their tutorial. Something in this sense.
Not a job, but a gig platform where mentors take on projects and outsource paid sub projects/tasks to learners according to their progress. A hyper modular skill tree that we develop over time could help to match tasks to skills :-)
@Sybil lol, people are saying this to us too, that we are too computer/programming centered. Also believe we need more man power. So @serapath and I also started coding school 2 years ago. Teaching kids, refugees, last few months traveling around JS brainwashing on the go :)) I think people get motivated when they see perspective what to do with coding. So what we try to build in the next stage is some sort of job platform, but the shitty part is still that the money will probably have to come from old economy. Second option is to help them start building their own apps in the indie hacker style, co-owning them through micro-holding cooperatives and building parallel economy and then when we cover enough market we can introduce new currency and build in certain rules (UBI? or whatever we want)....
Something in this direction....
@Sybil Totally. Technology is the only way the change can happen, absolutely agree with you. So if you by angry mob mean us, the geeks, than we're on the same page. I thought you were saying that angry mob will change things in the sense of voting, inside of current 'democracy'. But yes, as you are saying and that's the point, completely agree, we have to and will change the way the system works if we want to see the change. Inside of old structures it's not possible. Baby boomers will only wake up when it hits them directly and this will happen after we take over...
So voting or changing anything through representative democracy won't change anything IMO, so in hackers I trust, I guess... Would just like to get an overview to really see what people are working on and how to plug things together so we move faster...
@Sybil The problems with the angry mob I see here in Europe is that it's the younger population, but we are a huge baby boomer generation which is holding on to old structure and doesn't want to let go. And it's also being pretty arrogant and ignorant when it comes to anything that doesn't serve them best...
YES! I also don't believe in govs or representative democracy and stuff, what is being built here (P2P stuff) is what will bring change. Wondering how we can incorporate social safety for all in this new system we're seeing being built. Through currency or free access to everything...
I love the new world that is coming to life :)
Adopting a universal basic income means all people can help society think creatively with new ideas, develop new industries — and free-up people to work on important future projects.
How do we get there?
@Dominic You could try to make a circular boat :))
But seriously, they have 750k of those circular thingies... Imagine. Thinking of making a tour there for couple of months with our WizardAmigos coding school and turning some of them into hacker spaces so after we leave people can still continue to meet and hack... Hm...
Maybe we should all go to Albania and live in one of their 750.000 bunkers and make hackerspaces in them. Who's in? :)
I don't know if folks were asking this here before, so pls just point to the conversation if it already exists...
What I would like to know is how does the notifications logic work, just to understand it, because I am super confused sometimes... I miss some answers or ave problems finding them. I guess the logic is just different from T or FB, so I have to learn it. Would be happy if someone who gets it 100% could share their tricks <3
Wow, I missed your replies, so no coding was happening on the flight. But I managed to see 2 movies after a long time :) Muchas gracias anyway for response, have to make this work anyways....
Hm, @dinosaur do you know when is npm5 coming out? Just to see if I should wait for this (it it's happening in the next week or two...) :)
What I do like in Europe in summer is that days are uber long. In Thailand we had dar at 18:30 these days and here is 21:21 now and still pretty bright. Ok, at least something ;)
@aomatofu Thnks for sharing. I didn't understand the end completely. Did you stay in Thailand and never went back to US? Or you never went back to Thailand... Because I just got back to Europe and I feel sick watching this boring, hypercapitalistic, brainwashed world and feel like going back very very very soon :)
I am going on a long flight and would like to do some coding. How do I install 4 node packages that I will be using? Thanks
Last days in Thailand. We spent 7 months in Asia. 2 months in Taipei, meeting with amazing g0v.tw crew with @audreyt, @clkao and others. Special island, lots of alternative energy and geekism :) Will go back very soon, maybe september...
Then 2 months of Chiang Mai, just to see this nomadic capital to see what is all about. Also very special place, although typical digital nomads aren't our tribe. Went rather to monk university and did some free coding lessons. Tried to sparkle to community with some of our ideas and philosophy, maybe at least some will be inspired...
Then few days in Malaysia and last few more months in Phuket where we also did some free coding camps and continued building our community.
Those photos are from today. Right now this little boy joined us and @serapath is showing him Code Combat. Super cute :) Bye bye palms, bye bye our little vegan buddhist streetfood restaurant and crazy motorbike rides to the coast. Will be back probably by october.
Here's a little component for my CodingAmigos profiles for the new app
Built with lovely BEL and CSJS. Omg, how smooth is JS :) Let's see what happens when we get to the authentication (Devise was so rad...). For now I am thinking to just go with Firebase auth, but would love to actually do it P2P, but let's see when we get there...
Finally I feel I know enough JS to start rebuilding my old Rails apps. Good bye stylus, erb files, non-modular development, hello bright new world :) I hope :))
