I am a public interest technologist working at the Freedom of the Press Foundation My day job is to work on using which people can leak information to the journalists securely. I also contribute to many projects. I am a core member of the @torproject and also core developer of the programming language & a director and fellow of Python Software Foundation.

@kushal @torproject
Have a question? Can we make #mastodon truly decentralized? Like each node running an instance, kind of like blockchain.the instances right now are still centralized with the mod of that instance enforcing policy guidelines.

@ullulullu @torproject someone has to be the moderator/admin. Even if it means it is a single person instance.

Btw, blockchain is just a hype and good for nothing.

@kushal @torproject
Can't the moderator/admin policies be defined through an algorithm that can be voted upon by the members of that instance. So that the mod doesn't get a dictatorial control on that instance?

@ullulullu @torproject

nah, the best option for you I think is that you run your own instance. Be the free person you always wanted to be.


great to see you here!

thanks for the re-introduction

@kushal nice to connect here! Saw ur blog quick question - how do I join the node ?? I dont seem to find it?

@kushal this sounds like an extremely fun and mentally taxing day job
