New Video: The Internet Shouldn't be Blockchain-Based


#42

This isn’t part of our current strategy but we may look into it in the future. Would be great to see organic reviews too.


#43

Great suggestion thanks! I have added it to the video description


#44

Awesome.

Could you link to the articles so people can upvote?


#46

I’m not doing any better but some more food for thought:

The new internet won’t be blockchain

First blockchain, now something better

The internet belongs to everyone

I live in the Netherlands. Many dutch people like to have dutch video’s and stuff. Just to convince people to take part on the SAFE network its best to make boundaries as low as possible.

Question: Is it possible to share the source code of this new video? So we can edit the text in dutch and make a voice over in dutch?

LIKE this post if you think this is helpful for your country too?!

@joeri and @SarahPentland : Would this be possible?


#48

I could but I don’t want to because if for whatever reason some tracks traffic back to hear and decides they think it’s some kind of spam they may take issue and could block links to SAFE related topics which I doubt but I do not want to do anything that jeopardise that.

The end of the video tells us to “join the SAFE Forum community to find out more.” However, it does not actually provide the URL to said community. Seems like it should.


#51

How about subtitles? That’s a good way and it’s easy to copy / translate the subtitles file using a standard text editor. @maidsafe can there be a subtitles file created and added to the video and shared for translation?

I feel the lack of attention to i18n is unbecoming of a global network.


#52

i18n ?

Can you tell this uneducated old dude what that is? Some sort of international convention?


#53

#54

I’v looked at it and seems that if the ‘community contribution’ would be enabled on the YouTube video that anyone could add a translation.


#55

Well… if this video doesn’t give one enough reason to go all-in, i don’t know what will :crazy_face:

Great job!!!

Who wants to add the punctuation?

Here it is with punctuation and timestamps in .srt format. See https://pastebin.com/1zPKKhd6

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:02,000
The internet's changing and there is a

2
00:00:02,000 --> 00:00:04,000
wave of new technologies entering the

3
00:00:04,000 --> 00:00:07,000
market. But most failed to provide the

4
00:00:07,000 --> 00:00:09,000
levels of privacy and security we should

5
00:00:09,000 --> 00:00:12,000
expect. The current internet relies on

6
00:00:12,000 --> 00:00:15,000
centralized servers owned by a few large

7
00:00:15,000 --> 00:00:18,000
and powerful organizations to host your

8
00:00:18,000 --> 00:00:21,000
data. These central points act as honey

9
00:00:21,000 --> 00:00:23,000
pots for hackers and advertisers trying

10
00:00:23,000 --> 00:00:27,000
to monetize your data. Decentralization

11
00:00:27,000 --> 00:00:30,000
offers a solution to this problem. Data

12
00:00:30,000 --> 00:00:32,000
is split up and hosted on unused

13
00:00:32,000 --> 00:00:35,000
capacity of users' devices. A network is

14
00:00:35,000 --> 00:00:38,000
created as these devices are linked

15
00:00:38,000 --> 00:00:40,000
together without central servers. However,

16
00:00:40,000 --> 00:00:44,000
many decentralized services are built on

17
00:00:44,000 --> 00:00:46,000
block chains which are an amazing design

18
00:00:46,000 --> 00:00:48,000
for public ledgers, but terrible mass-storage

19
00:00:48,000 --> 00:00:51,000
containers. Storing data directly

20
00:00:51,000 --> 00:00:53,000
on the blockchain is prohibitively

21
00:00:53,000 --> 00:00:56,000
expensive and provides poor read/write

22
00:00:56,000 --> 00:00:59,000
performance. Subsequently, blockchain

23
00:00:59,000 --> 00:01:01,000
based storage solutions store a data

24
00:01:01,000 --> 00:01:04,000
identifiers (such as a hash in a

25
00:01:04,000 --> 00:01:06,000
blockchain) but store the data somewhere

26
00:01:06,000 --> 00:01:09,000
else and this somewhere else still needs

27
00:01:09,000 --> 00:01:11,000
to be secured. We should be trying to

28
00:01:11,000 --> 00:01:15,000
secure the data, not the pointer to it. It

29
00:01:15,000 --> 00:01:17,000
is time for a solution that secures both

30
00:01:17,000 --> 00:01:19,000
the data and the ledger.

31
00:01:19,000 --> 00:01:22,000
This is the safe Network: the world's

32
00:01:22,000 --> 00:01:24,000
first and only autonomous data network.

33
00:01:24,000 --> 00:01:27,000
An autonomous network is not a set of

34
00:01:27,000 --> 00:01:30,000
servers or owned storage locations or

35
00:01:30,000 --> 00:01:32,000
identifiable nodes. It is a self-healing

36
00:01:32,000 --> 00:01:35,000
self-configuring and self-managing

37
00:01:35,000 --> 00:01:38,000
system similar to a colony of ants.

38
00:01:38,000 --> 00:01:40,000
There is no centralized authority and

39
00:01:40,000 --> 00:01:42,000
yet it's highly optimized and effective.

40
00:01:42,000 --> 00:01:45,000
Comparative to blockchain mining which

41
00:01:45,000 --> 00:01:47,000
uses proof-of-work algorithms, the safe

42
00:01:47,000 --> 00:01:50,000
network operates on a proof of resource

43
00:01:50,000 --> 00:01:53,000
farming system. Users are paid for the

44
00:01:53,000 --> 00:01:54,000
quantity and quality of storage capacity

45
00:01:54,000 --> 00:01:57,000
they provide to the network. Time for a

46
00:01:57,000 --> 00:02:00,000
truly decentralized autonomous internet

47
00:02:00,000 --> 00:02:03,000

It is definately a good idea to have proper subtitles, that too. But as I mentioned. “Just to convince people to take part on the SAFE network its best to make boundaries as low as possible.” A video in your own language, is the best way to reach this.

Last month I recieved the source code from Privacy International of this video:

Some friends and me translated, created a voice-over and are now editing the rest of it.

I think it is absolutely necessary to create a website with a language choice for each country, provide very good marketing material to convince people. It must be as non-technical as possible so that everybody can understand it. It needs to be independent, not specifically related to maidsafe. Its a general problem, and from there you can point to the safe network.

A perfect example of what I think it should look like, but then this is far to technical and too much information:

The little, or null, interest in opening up to other languages has been a constant of this project that has to change ASAP.
Bocacho is the only one who has taken care to translate his Safewallet into other languages.

I shared the video a couple of times this morning and as links usually include the first line of the video description I noticed the description reads “The Safe Access For Everyone (SAFE) Network” instead of “The Secure Access For Everyone (SAFE) Network”.
