RedMatrix was an interesting experiment in the early days of the fediverse. We went through a few years of wild experimentation into finding the boundaries and limits of what was actually possible with decentralised systems. (As we quickly discovered, literally anything). We weren't trying to sell anything. We were just seeing what you could do and where you could go with this technology if you ignored the critics and naysayers and just did it. Sure, we made a lot of mistakes, but you're allowed to do that when you throw away the rule book. In the years since, we've refined a number of those early ideas - like integrated cloud storage, nomadic identity, and ethical permissions based systems that transparently work across domain boundaries. The protocols we initially used were completely ad-hoc, but now we use more or less standard systems and adapt them to our needs. The database technology was seriously flawed and that has been corrected. Some of the ideas were so far out that they were incomprehensible to the average person. But out of that experience came a number of great ideas that live on today - and they refuse to be killed.
Anyway, long story short - welcome to RedMatrix 2020.https://codeberg.org/zot/redmatrix.git
