Thinking about hosting a bear.comm scuttlebutt hub. Anyone interested?
@urso what is a scuttlebutt hub?
@urso I ❤️ it 👌
@grosours I'm going to take a shot at it this weekend, then
@urso @grosours Not a fan of manyverse so far... The "write these 48 words down on paper to recover your account" thing (combined with the app disabling screenshots) tells me it's encrypting my own stuff on my phone. If I wanted my stuff encrypted on my own device, I'd be running whole-device encryption. I'll check out another app to see if that's a "feature" of the protocol. (Knowing I can never delete a post is also an enormous turn-off, though, and that's baked into the protocol.)
@raindog469 @grosours I hear ya. I'm not familiar with manyverse, since my intention is to run it on my laptops mostly, but my belief is that once I put it on the internet, I no longer can fully control it, so knowing I can't delete it (because it is copied to peers' accounts) seems like a fair tradeoff to me - like e-mail, if you will.
@raindog469 @grosours what I still need to research is, when I connect to another pub, is scuttlebutt going to send all my data to there as well? And will it send my peers' data too? If it does, then that's a huge no-go to me. Me sharing my own public data I can understand, but of my friends too, hmmmmmm no thanks
I'm fine with this. The current plan is to have an invite-only pub where people have to ask for invites (so it'll be a closed community) and a SSB room with free access so people can find each other when they're online
Bear.community is a 18+ only Mastodon server for bears, chubbies and chasers.
