Hi Radicle team,
Great project! I really like it.
Over at the Knowledge Standards Foundation (https://larrysanger.org/2019/10/introducing-the-encyclosphere/) we’re currently discussing the possible architecture for a global, decentralized, uncensorable encyclopaedia. So far we’ve zero-ed in on the benefits of a content-addressable system (using IPFS or Torrents) combined with digital signatures and self-sovereign identities.
Being able to collaborate on a piece of content would be great, and Git obviously provides a great foundation for making collaboration a breeze. Since you guys have built a decentralised Git/hub I’d love to have a chat (email, chat, or call) with you about the how hard or feasible you think it is to use a similar system (Git over IPFS) for what we’re trying to build.
Our end-user content creators will be non-developers. We want to publish to the encyclopaedia from blogging platforms, for example. So of course we’ll have to build additional UIs for collaboration (branching / merging) purposes. But data integrity and digital signatures are crucial (and Git does have those already).
Look forward to hearing from you.
