Impressive rate of progress (Score: 3, Insightful) by firstname.lastname@example.org on 2014-04-14 11:14 (#12C) How many people are developing this site? That's a good set of features for one week. I will maintain an active interest and try to comment more often as I think this is a worthy endeavour with a good foundation and great potential.Those approval-voting "What features do you want" polls are also a great idea and I think everyone would win if you ran them regularly.

I am assuming it is a pet project of bryan. I still open pipedot every once in two days but I don't see any urgency to get this site into a sustainable form - there is no effort in building community, no effort in drawing-in new visitors and as a news website there is hardly any news or comments. Most people have moved on to SN as of now. Re: Impressive rate of progress (Score: 4, Interesting) by firstname.lastname@example.org on 2014-04-15 12:05 (#12N) Thank you for the offer to help. I did create a github organization and project like you asked and will start pushing pieces up over the next few weeks. The authentication code will likely be this week. My goal has always been to release more of the pipecode project once the distributed parts are close enough to work reasonably well. The idea is for anyone to be able to extract a tarball on a standard webserver and have a working pipecode setup. And linked to every other pipecode installation. There is a bittorrent network with distributed hash tables and magnet links. There is a bitcoin network with a distributed transaction log. About time there is a distributed news network.

Please don't take my comment as any kind of derision or pro-soylent/anti-pipe kind of trolling comment. I have particular interest in seeing slash rewritten using newer tech, a rewrite that stays true to the original discussion forum, which is why I am interested in pipedot (along with the fact that I have lower uid here :p). But I will ask one question: as I understand you are funding the website from your own. But as the website grows pipedot is bound to run into monetization. This way or the other we will have to have large (enough) audience for that to be possible. What are your thoughts about that?
