If you think the answer to a well paid big tech employee taking a bribe to compromise your account is to switch to a decentralised alternative,
I cant wait til you discover how easy it will be to bribe one of the thousands of volunteer admins running these decentralised alterantives.
@shibacomputer That is true, but on a well-decentralized network, the damage a single admin can cause is also much smaller.
@brunoph compartmentalisation will help, but is wholly dependent on the topology of the network
Here's something I've written about this assumption: https://cloud.newdesigncongress.org/s/5jzRX7AJiC38XDy
@shibacomputer Is it okay if I share this? Or is this article still in draft status?
@aadil please hold off for now. I'm 99% sure I am publishing today. I'll send you a link as soon as it happens.
@shibacomputer looking forward to it
@liaizon yes! read and shared it on ssb earlier today
@shibacomputer Less incentive to bribe any one admin in a decentralised network, though. At least for the kind of hack they ran on Twitter.
@shibacomputer Fair point, but unlike the centralized datafarm, bribing just any admin won't help them compromise my account. They can only do that if an admins on the instance hosting *my* account will take a bribe. I can avoid that by self-hosting, or by picking an instance run by someone I know and have good reason to trust.
