I'm a big fan of Scuttlebutt and have been using it for over a year. At
some point it took up to 10Gb of space on my hdd, so you exchange
decentralized pixiedust for hard storage. Fans of decentralized tools
keep being told that it doesn't matter, that storage is cheap, but a
10Gb folder is the first to go when my drive is full. :/

Roel, the ActivityPub topic would be cool! I've been reading a bit ...
It may be interesting to compare with the ActivityPub protocol: I've
been reading about secure scuttlebutt protocol and tools. Scuttlebutt is
a 'a decent(ralised) secure gossip platform' and a protocol which is
based on 'per-feed' blockchain (sigh...) which is picking up more users
(and having more and more buzz from Mastodon users with the growing
tendency of realising that having Admins may not be ideal). See
On the other hand, I'm more interested in seeing if ActivityPub can be
more offline-first. Why can ActivityPub not also have the same
properties that SSB provides? There has been some related discussion
about this over at https://octodon.social/@cwebber/100650503220747622
Related to the http://www.lowtechmagazine.com/
adventure, I saw you
were asking questions for how to build a comments system into it that
fits with the constraints. I wonder if this couldn't involve using some
offline-first form of ActivityPub as a pelican plugin?
