THE SOVRYN HEDONY
From a July 10th ZOG Blog post by Dr. Sovryn:
The Sovryn Hedony: Now, just because I want to get away from social media in general, doesn’t necessarily mean that I consider all social media some kind of grand evil. The companies that we largely have to deal with now certainly are in many ways, but the real problem with them is that it is antithetical to enriching human communication, in my opinion. As a byproduct of “The World Wild Web”, I am creating my own hybrid social media/forum site that will be available by going to the URL “hedony.xyz“. Is this a Facebook-killer? Not necessarily. But it will be a place where you can come and be able to enter a realm of ideas, human advancement, and hopefully a lot of understanding. I have no intention of it scaling very large, in fact it would go against my own aims. My aims are not to “connect the world to each other”, I just want to have an online basecamp where people of like-mindedness can come and converse (and due to the Dunbar Number, I don’t expect that to ever grow very large). While you’ll certainly be able to be anonymous on it, please understand that this is in no way some kind of encrypted platform (other than SSL). I’m still debating on whether or not I’m going to “gate” it, and there will be private messaging options, but please don’t rely on this for any kind of “NSA-proofing”. Those sorts of things require teams, and I am largely a one-man show here with everything done and available at zog.ninja. But if anarchists or voluntarists–even if they’re not tech-savvy or minded–want a place to hangout, the Sovryn Hedony will be here for you.
