on distributed unicorns and decentralization myths
Since i started programming some hundred years ago i've had this dream of building a totally distributed unicorn with no single points of power and control. After encountering many feminists, philosophers, hackers, anthropologists and sociologists my perspectives on what i was dreaming about have changed, are still changing dramatically. Are the current decentralizing technologies and projects like Bitcoin, IPFS, SSB-Patchwork, ZeroTier or CJDNS just wonderful unicorns? Which ways do crypto-fascisms loom and which human agencies? How is this whole programming business entangled with bureaucratic, cybernetic state thinking in that it tries to appropriate, steer human living for control and profit?
