@kzimmermann Testing ZeroNet, it's pretty fast ! Found your blog over there. Do you know if site contents get shared even if my firewall is very restrictive (basically INPUT deny if not related/established). I can connect & seed to regular bittorent swarm(s) just fine but here nothing seems seeded (yet?)

@grimsdottir IIRC port forwarding is not necessary at all to use ZeroNet, but it helps in some things like service discovery I think

@kzimmermann Thanks, I'll see if the content I accessed gets seeded over time then. Are you still using it ? I'm asking since your blog articles were mostly from the previous year.

@grimsdottir meh, I know, I should use P2P more often. I blame awesome people appearing on the fediverse, making me forget zeronet :P

@kzimmermann Ha, yiu have a point, perhaps we need zeronet-based microblogging platforms then :p Distributed but federated !

@grimsdottir hey, one of the latest things I saw in ZeroNet was #ZeroMe, a GS-like social network, but completely P2P. Tried id yet?

@kzimmermann Neat, I didn't yet but I'll have to ! I wonder how many peers is the network strong. Reaching a proper critical mass matters so much for a microblogging platform.

I remember seeing like 900+ peers back in the day, but most of them were for ZeroPlay. Torrenting is great, but there's so much more there!

@kzimmermann Indeed, there's about 1000 peers for the main page, somehow on proxies (e.g ), there's muuuch more peers (like 10k), dunno why since it's supposed to share the same DHT network no ? Anyway there's some activity but there's much to build as well. I find it fascinating though :)

@grimsdottir also, you reminded me to use ZeroNet more often. I think it's been a year almost since I last interacted with it
