RE: Media DAC
Patchwork is the easiest way to get an overview. They still have a manual invite method that gets you into a pub server but it is pretty easy and well documented. I think it would be more reliable long term to have a EOS token you could stake instead to incentivize pub servers to keep encrypted user data for them under predictable terms. I could see user's electing their favorite pub server providers.
Because you have an incentive system then it should be reasonable to scale it to handle larger storage and network bandwidth. There is a need to have sharable semi-private high-value media like: videos, scientific documents, books, and of course chat, etc..
The protocol would need to be changed or augmented to be light-client friendly. I think this can be done by adding a on-going state that summarizes the log where each session updates the state and removes the need to parse prior log entries. Much like EOS does except state is on disk not ram and would not have as much of a size constraint.
Anyway, it really is very simple in its present form and it is a good starting point. In any event, I found it a good learning experience. It is an example we can look that naturally gives each user their own chain ("log") so they don't all have to be on the same chain and will be easier to run it off-line after sign-up or in rural areas. This helps circumvent the ISP problem ..
Excellent! Thank you. I've added myself. I guess this is my identifier?
How do I go about following you, as an example? I joined a pub as well. Seems I'm one of the few who actually set up an avatar.
Yes, that is your public key. I followed you. My identity is

Sorry, not related to his topic, but not sure how else to reach you.
Thank you so much for putting delegation back into tribesteemup. Your delegation made a huge difference in not only my life but my overall mentality. I am trying to promote pay-what-you-want as a concept in order to make it a sustainable method of sharing art and other work.
Obviously it's an uphill battle, but you've made it so much easier for me to maintain an abundance mindset, and the break in between was good to to help me not rely too much on any one source of support. I'm back to working a job now (hadn't for 3 years) but I am still working hard on my art and everything I believe in. I hope to do for others what you've done for us!
I just want to thank you formally here! :-D
