Q: There’s already a place where to have web pages and websites: it’s called the web, duh! Why would you have another place to do the same thing, dumba$$?
A: Because the web game is rigged. And unfair. And opaque. And greedy. And unfair. Look, try this out: make your own webpage or blog, about some really really relevant topic, say climate change, or veganism, or about anything trendy that people want to know about. Then, apply some really great SEO, you know, so you can get some attention to your message, or product. Put it out there, on the web, then watch what will happen. Watch carefully, pay attention. What do you see? Nothing. That’s right, nothing at all. Why? Because the search engines don’t care about the millionth opinion or product on that very important matter, because nobody talks about your thing in relation to the topic, because you don’t have a community pushing with you on social media platforms and click farms.
If you had, if by any chance your meaningful and important message would emerge and miraculously end up floating around, and be seen, chances are you would soon be the target of so many sharks, conterfeiters, imposters - in other words: bad actors, that you would soon be ready to pay for someone to bring you out of it. That’s how bad it has become.
Q: Duh! That sucks. And why do you think your thing would be any different?
A: Let just say that internet that has regular webpages and blog posts has become tiny mini, insignificant, compared to everything huge happening online. So little, that it would probably be a good thing to have it become an app. First came the web, with all its colourful pages and blogs and forums and reviews, then came the giants with their apps that ate everything. Holo is a giant too, one that is actually growing up, but it is a gentle giant, a humane giant. So to me, it makes perfect sense that a new “website” app that would be fair and gentle and durable should be hosted on the Holochain.
Q: Hmmm. Okay then, fair enough. But how do you plan to make an app if your back-end knowledge is “minus freakin’ zero”?
A: With your help. If what I’m saying means anything at all to you, please invest some of your attention, and help me focus on what should be done. It has to start somewhere.
