Hey #Holochain crowd. Recently I learned that all the Holochain betas are creating a lot of confusion among people watching the project. The biggest question I heard was "why so may betas?", followed by "why hasn't the #HoloFuel swap started?"

To some, this seems like a change in plans. Nothing has changed, but the important thing to know is that Holochain and Holo Hosting are two different things. Holochain is a app creation toolkit, Holo is a hosting service.
Holochain has got nothing to do with Holo, except Holo (the platform) is being built on Holochain and Holo (the company) is a subsidiary of the Holochain Foundation.

๐Ÿงต Reflections on #DWebCamp #DWebCamp2022

DWeb camp is an interesting thing. It's more like a festival than a conference. I don't know if the goal is for participants to build things or to connect and recharge, but I don't see why it can't be both.
For me, it was a great chance to simply be with other DWeb folks and know that we're not alone in trying to build digital 'tools for conviviality', as #IvanIllich says -- tools that help us be more human, rediscover our agency, support each other. This work often feels lonely.
It wasn't just about knowing that we have allies. It was about meeting those allies, being in the same space, chatting over breakfast, stargazing together, even attending a wedding between two participants! It was about coupling our heady #DWeb world with the realm of the heart.

I wrote down the stories told by old timers who had been doing stuff with computers for over 30 years at the #DWebCampโ€ฆ
"There are different ways of looking at change in the world. We're biologically the same as we were 10,000 years ago. Maybe the only change we can make is through technology. Culture is changing, and that change might be caused by technology." - Mary Lou Jepson
"Shoot straight for your goal. Shoot for a big goal. Everyone can work along on it with you without working for you. Have a north star, one that isn't something you're going to achieve in your lifetime." - Brewster Kahle
