Let's try an exercise in prediction and scenario building to try to guess at what the world will be like based on the trends currently happening today.
- 10 years from now, or 25 years from now, what will be different about the internet from what we have today?
- What will be the economic impact of net neutrality being dismantled by Comcast & Verizon lobbyists?
- Would a tiered internet be used by agencies to effectively censor non-mainstream media?
- Will fears from the NSA revelations promote the segmentation of the internet among nations.
- Does a pervasive surveillance state and a hyper-commercialized political body destroy the necessity of democracy and will that impact the freedom of the web?
- If we created general artificial intelligence in the near future, how would it react to the direction the web is moving?
- Right now we live in the period of the responsive web with HTML5+JS+CSS3, what will be the next big paradigms of interactive media?
- San Francisco, Seattle, and other tech cities are experiencing severe rent hikes and tech-company FTE's enjoy free transportation while public transportation is getting gutted by state budgets. There have been several reactionary forces in protest. What will this evolve into?
- Cryptocurrency shook the world, but laws passed in China & Russia have hurt Bitcoin's growth. Moreover, a plethora of coins emerged amidst spiking BTC prices. What will happen with "coin"?
- Internet culture has formed around social networks and content sites like reddit, but the rising popularity of "broadcast" sites like the gawker network are starting to conquer social media and changing it into something different. How will people consume media in the next decade?
- If we are truly facing massive unemployment from automation, what functions could the internet provide to change the way people earn a living? (Gittip or Tipbots on steroids?)
- What will happen with the "internet of things?" What about the proliferation of drones everywhere? Will decentralized meshnets be achievable? Or will legislators make non-centralized networks illegal for their own monetary benefit? (The TPP already hints at this)
There is so much out there that describes what the internet is today. However, this could just be a fraction of what the internet could become? I fear that a tiered internet would have dire and near immediate economic consequences.. But maybe I'm wrong. So let's make some predictions, what are your:
- BEST CASE: When/What
- WORST CASE: When/What
- EXPECTED CASE: When/What
- UNEXPECTED CASE: When/What (what crazy idea could catch everyone off guard?)
TL:DR. A friend and I have been working on this
for the past 9 months or so. Don't upload any data you mind losing, I will be wiping the DB before alpha. Source code here
Our old css volunteer is too busy to really work on it, so we need someone to fill those shoes. I try, but I suck at it.
We'd also any python/django devs who feel like helping out.
Donations would also be nice.
I accept bitcoin at 147dJaeXj9sXcnRrGJ3Zpu7tSh2wyyj9Rw and have a gittip account here
. Other donations can be sent to [email protected]
We don't have a proper donation system set up yet, so it's just going to me. Expect a proper rhombik donation system and transparency eventually. Right now we're mostly focused on moving to alpha. In light of all the makerbot controversy, we need an alternative to their thingivese product. Take a look at some of my /3Dprinting surveys. Particularly the thingiverse opinion survey. People really want an alternative, but there aren't really any good choices. For the average user anyway.
The current open-source options leave something to be desired. Bld3r is ugly, generally isn't user friendly, and has a max file size of 40mb.
Cubehero supports open-source, but isn't open-source itself. Although some of its libraries are. A very github-ey approach to the whole thing. It requires knowledge of git, and is a bit buggy. Not a good choice for the "average" user.
That's about it for the repositories that are actually open source. Unless I'm forgetting something. Non-opensource repositories concern me for a number of reasons. Like how microsoft was looking to integrate the windows store with 3D printing a while back. If it's not open source and it's popular, some giant evil company is likely to buy it.
We use rackspace cloud files/CDN (an open-source cloud file system) so hosting is fast and relatively cheap, plus we can support an open-source company.
It's mostly driven by a rock-solid search api (django-haystack). We use the same algorithm as reddits "best" filter to sort content, so it should be pretty easy to separate the good from the bad. Something that thingiverse struggles with.
The whole thing should scale pretty well in general, especially once we improve the caching.
It's desperately important that 3D printing gets out from under the shadow of makerbot and thingiverse. And I think my project is the most likely to manage it.
So any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks for reading.
I've got clang installed (couldn't get gcc working) but I can't seem to run a successful build, there are just too many dependencies. I don't have an iOS dev environment setup on my laptop, can someone help me build/create a Cydia package for the fish-shell? I'd be willing to pay $5 via gittip/paypal/bitcoin. https://github.com/fish-shell/fish-shell
Alternatively, if someone could post some tips here on how to get it working myself, I'd be eternally grateful, and I'm sure other people would benefit as well from seeing iOS build instructions. The specific step I'm stuck on is getting ncurses-dev installed.
Edit*: @ThomasFinch got it working! https://gist.github.com/thomasfinch/424ab7da276f8474b53058fe29af1ae2
