@Purism I can't seem to access developer.puri.sm. Site maintenance?

Where is the conversation on alive, other than technology-specific communities?

@ashfurrow I dream of a time when it's possible to communicate entirely over short-distance tech like bluetooth and wifi (however slowly). solutions (delay tolerant networking) like work towards that potentiality.

Anyone talking about decentralized back-end? Like maybe . Functions could usually run locally. Seems like a good abstraction to make work for the .
