after a long long long time, it is really inspiring to look at such decentralizing projects by communities, that work with a philosophical spirit.
if i would have engaged in proper research some 1 or 2 years back, i would have included them and made a better review. However it is never late.
best thing: offline first + no-backend
lot of ideas, that a front end developer/designer would think and do, i hope can now be made easier with such frameworks and libraries, without the need of undergoing extra steep learning curves. i would like to use it for my gis based applications. let's see how it goes, probably with help from soft-hack folks around here...
i personally felt, that atlast web technologies have made remarkable stride in such efforts, towards - independent relations based network. A way towards a connectivity solution that could even work without central connectivity. A break from vicious cycle. A step towards disaster resilience web.
but i do not know how the business people/entrepreneurs who completely rely on centralized web services they offer centrally (stating some techno complexities and offerings) as their main way of profit/revenue generation and commerce.
I would love to make applications with such facilities, and it would be a great p2p cooperative sharing, and i am excited in economics of it. is there an acceleration factor here ?
afaik, such free s/w, free h/w, p2p based technology is more than just hobby realm --- atleast for a few. Now for those who would like to make a living out of such projects - what is the alternative of conventional incentives? my point is: with such decentralization + p2p technologies in rise, corresponding economic support structures must also be thought. I think it is important, because, more applications/technologies could emerge by imparting it.
