Hi welcome to 2022 we send audio over optical connections and the most popular new video interconnect is the serial port. Here's your wireless touchpad. The easiest way to transfer data between two computers in the same room is via someone else's computer hundreds of miles away. Have a normal day
@khm So true. Although I am pleasantly surprised with how well AirDrop works as a local transfer method in the Apple ecosystem.
@khm it's a longshot but i hope bluetooth's new "auracasting" breaks us out of this long freeze, where we start to ask ourselves: why is this literally the only technology around to connect person-to-person?
@khm ...but actually the easiest way to transfer data between two computers in the same room is syncthing? what am i missing
Like the problem there is a bit that people haven't aligned on the same standard.
In some branches of science there is issue that no-one reproduces experiments, but FOSS should probably reproduce standards more.
@khm it is literally just bluetooth file transfer with fancy branding and a nice ui. you telling me it’s hard on non apple computers?
@khm If only windows PCs and mobile phones came with netcat pre-installed 😞
You could use powershell for sending a file over TCP, but its way less convenient than netcat.
@khm the last point is untrue. Nearby sharing is a thing on windows and android (and I assume on the rest).
@khm where copying music to your phone went from "plug it in & hello drive E:" to "there's a reason I've installed an FTP server on it"
