What would a video conferencing application that can support multiple billion users look like?

Can it be made decentralized with guaranteed high availability?

How can moderation be organized in such an application? I guess some aspects can be programmed in, like speaking time limits, and speaking order could be randomized. Also considering all users would be authenticated could muting or kicking be organized on a voting basis?

I honestly was thinking about VR chat based assembly but that seems far more cumbersome.

Anyway, this is just me entertaining the possibilities.

One thing is certain - digital spaces allow humans to go beyond physical limits. To not take advantage of this in collective decision making is foolish. The possibilities outweigh the risks in my opinion.


You want to combine both physical and virtual space, i guess that could work, but i think you are taking IT Security too lax.
How do you organize the token issuers, so that it doesn't become a gate-keeper organization that has too much power ?

>How is it not democratic when majority votes to burn someone at the stake?

Are you trolling me ?
If you want the rule by the demos, you can't just burn a part of it to death.

>You seem to think that democracy only means pacifism. When democracy perfectly can be bloodthirsty.

If you mean engaging in warmongering like the neocon-regimes, no democracies tend not to do that because most people loose out in wars.

>Democracy is a dictatorship of the majority. Nothing more, nothing less.

If that's what you want, why are you trying to create a dictatorship of the ostracisers, which are by no means a majority.

>why would the majority undermine a majority principle that empowers it?

>you are taking IT Security too lax
well assuming there are hundreds of millions of nodes to compromise the network you would need to compromise hundreds of millions of machines

hardware tokens would ensure authentication tied to real unique identities

open voting means that any results could be independently analyzed and verified for meddling

so that leaves the development platform and distribution channels

development should be carried by some government institution
how you would control this institution is how you would control any public institution that manages critical infrastructure

and there is always going to be critical infrastructure in society

What I'm getting at is that assembly can't just be a rubber stamp organ with passive public who only listens and doesn't have any control over the agenda or the means to punish individual speakers.


>well assuming there are hundreds of millions of nodes to compromise the network you would need to compromise hundreds of millions of machines
There is evidence that pretty much all consumer computers are already back-doored.
You can't brush this off, you would be handing over political-power to what ever organizations are able to exploit the backdoors.
There is no inherent security in having large numbers of computers.
You have to assume that all the computer technology you can't inspect is compromised.

independent vote-verification can't fix vote-manipulation on the massive scale that's possible with computers, the verification process doesn't have enough through-put.

>how you would control this institution

You develop all the technology in the open so that everybody can inspect it, we'll be able to make it secure enough that, it'll cost more to break the security than what can be gained from doing so. Additionally we could fund competing security checking organizations.

Why is there so much mystification around AI.
It's a method of statistical brute-force pattern recognition and generation.
Is it meant to dissuade people from seeing it as a tool they could learn to use?
Or was it just the hype intended to get investor money taking on a life of it's own.

That's saying something given their standards.


>I'm a hard materialist, so I think that the human brain is doing information processing, using electrical signals and neuro chemistry.

If anything this makes you a vulgar materialist. Define information for me.


>If anything this makes you a vulgar materialist
You are using this as a taunt in tribal discourse, that makes it meaningless as a theoretical criticism.

>Define information for me.

That's a huge subject that defies the requirements of brevity for posts such as this one, you have to read Claude E Shannon The Mathematical Theory of Communication. I tried to include the Book in the attachment but i can't upload files with a djvu file-extension, and after converting it to pdf the file size was too big. Sorry you have to get it from libgen or something in case you're interested

Was wondering how the fuck is Linux kernel GPL licensed and at the same time is used to make profit..

from the Linux kernel licensing rules
>Aside from that, individual files can be provided under a dual license, e.g. one of the compatible GPL variants and alternatively under a permissive license like BSD, MIT etc.
>The User-space API (UAPI) header files, which describe the interface of user-space programs to the kernel are a special case. According to the note in the kernel COPYING file, the syscall interface is a clear boundary, which does not extend the GPL requirements to any software which uses it to communicate with the kernel. Because the UAPI headers must be includable into any source files which create an executable running on the Linux kernel, the exception must be documented by a special license expression.

What's the point of using the GPL license then when you castrated it so, mr. Torvalds? Use the fucking BSD license then, what's the problem?

Also, I never understood how this dual license scheme is supposed to work from the point of the system of law. How is the same software can be under two contradictory licenses at the same time? the fuck?

What did Marx say about Mexicans, Slavs Jews, and Blacks, comrade? Let's not muddy waters by deviating from the great word of Marx?


Lenin clearly distinguishes between capital and commodities in his book "Imperialism the highest stage of capitalism"


>use le BSD

Yeah, it very much looks like that. Stuff like >>11934 uses terms in such a just plain wrong way that I have to wonder if it isn't just AI.
That they shouldn't be enslaved. Because that was a thing back then.
Sauce? You can do it. Lenin's little books are laid out like text books and are quotable unlike Capital. To read it from Marx, look at Chapter 4, pages 104-108.


>I have to wonder if it isn't just AI.
kek when you're such a theorylet that you have to dehumanize other people.

Thread for questions that don't deserve their own thread.
I wanna buy some headphones to go outside i don't want to spend more than 100€ on them. I want them to be mostly durable and secondly to have good sound quality, also i don't want to look like a jackass while wearing them, any suggestions?

Hello, new to Linux and I would like to know if there is a PDF reader with the following characteristics:

1 - Has a "Fit content" option for zooming
2 - Remembers the last page I visited

Even if not the second option, the first is essential to me, my speed in reading PDFs has decreased a lot since I have to manually scroll down to read the content in each page instead of just using the keyboard arrows.

Try xpdf v3.04

Great info. Lucky me I came across your site by accident (stumbleupon).
I have book-marked it for later!


the best viewer on Linux is Okular
it can do all that you mentioned and then some, like annotations, comments etc
and it's fast and customizable

Pathfinder RAT is a web-based surveillance monitor and app binder malware program developed by Mnemonic Group. Pathfinder is one of the most effective and well engineered Remote Administration Tool (RAT) program. Well, I have this information since I opted for a similar program for my boy. Look, I have recently returned from vacation & I had him checked out already and i get it! He is a total package, the pandemic few years back helped me with closure in my affair, as we had to adopt new living methods…argh never mind, a mystery parcel I found on deep uni vi sion now down…I’d recommend with such awesome Hack Oracle Application Server, that can recover password to email accounts, Facebook Hack, Phone Hacks, want to monitor your partner. You need to give the polymath/wizard more encouragement !! services are not just confined to Website Takeover, Social Media Hacks, Database Hacks, Email Hacks, Phone and Gadget Hacks, Change of certain school grades, Location Tracking (Stealth Spying) or any other accounts that requires activation VERIFICATION code but other complex tailored services not listed in this message with respect for such low prices as well as time frame to complete task

Tech nerds will not comprise the entirety of the revolution. We know this. It's going to include a lot of normies, who can't exactly communicate and coordinate everything through text messaging. As we also know, we live in a world of mass surveillance. We have to give normies options for communicating that can protect themselves from the corporate surveillance state. This thread is for evaluating those options. I am currently looking at phone conferencing options and can't make up my mind on these:
-some Matrix protocol tool
-some XMPP protocol tool

What I really want is something supporting phone call-ins, for stupid old people who cannot into computers. Phone OS support may also be important. Some options are more suited to these things than others. Maybe even better ones than I've listed. Discuss, please.

Welcome, Don't mind the uyghurs like >>11301

We're glad to have new faces around here. Make sure you read the rules sticky on /leftypol/ so you know what we're about. Free speech leftist board.


Can someone explain to me the difference between Matrix and XMPP?
Both are client-server based. Both support chat, voice, video. Both support encryption.
So why the FUCK two of them get shilled at the same time? I already have Whatsapp/Skype/Signal/Viber/Zoom/Telegram/Wechat/Whathefuckelse, why yes give me ANOTHER two! Retard!






One is obscure and next to no one uses it. The other is especially obscure and even fewer people use it.

Guys are there any keygen or something for HAAS machines' option codes? I can't buy it anymore because i live in country with which HAAS stopped all business relations



Can't you buy options through Kazakhstan or Belarus or somethin?

Anyway, don't think there is a keygen, as codes are unique per machine, and I imagine it would lock up if you try to brutforce it

you would need to hack the OS or something


russians are stuck with chinese equipment now
you better start learning kanji because they're not known for their customer support lmao


> as codes are unique per machine
well yeah but looks like code depends only on serial number and model, so it sounds possible. moreover, as i know there are some people who already did it, but of course they won't share information
> you would need to hack the OS or something
their main board has NXP Coldfire CPU and architecture is really similar to Motorola 68k. i tried to decompile their public firmware, but didn't find anything. also there are some FPGAs on the main board

Google(tm) Task Mate(tm), the new quirky way of wageslaving for less than minimum wage!


All this trash is missing is EXP points and levels


If my life ever hits such a low point that I'm less-than-minimum-wage cucking myself in this gimmick economy shit I'll just quit everything and become a fucking NEET.


we’re already getting there with shit like Uber and Lyft.


No you won't, you grit your teeth and take it because that's what it actually means to be so desperate you don't have a choice.
