I hadn't ever heard of CJDNS or Yggdrasil before, so I learned more today (and I'm not even done with morning coffee). I would love to hear more on what one could do with mesh networks (broad topic, I know).

Great show. I hope you do more podcasts on any of the topics you mentioned in the show. Don't hesitate to give detail!

I have not used Gentoo on well over 10 years. Could you do a show about why you are using Gentoo and how it compares to debian/ubuntu/fedora/...?

You expressed some concern about your microphone, but there was no problem with your audio. Loud and Clear.

IPv6 end to end encryption

Interesting. I am right now learning how to use Wireguard for end-to-end encryption. Wondering how it works in IPv6. Different approach but similar goal.

Yggdrasil pronunciation

As a Scandinavian, I can say that your pronunciation of Yggdrasil is entirely accurate, and if anyone doubts it, they can hear Hugo Weaving pronounce it in much the same way in "Captain America: The First Avenger", which by coincidence I saw only a few days later.

I thought your views were interesting. I was particularly interested in how you highlighted that CJDNS was going to monetized and Yggdrasil was not or at least yet.

I've read about CJDNS, Yggdrasil and IPFS and I'm not sure exactly how all these overlap. My "limited" understanding is CJDNS and Yggdrasil "are" just the network but IPFS is the network plus a network storage system. I don't understand how IPFS network finds things or works. Sure it uses a hash, I get that, but the mechanics of finding the hash, how it determines what pieces of multiple copies it routes back and how I don't get yet.

It would seem to me if we could get something like Yggdrasil for the network that could have multiple encrypted hops like I2P or Tor and then have a store like IPFS, BUT you could choose what data you "mirrored" (like torrents or IPFS or zeronet)...well we would really have a kick ass open net that anyone could publish on anonymously and people could choose not to "mirror" some of the more seedy parts of the darknet.

I think these are coming together. I wish it were faster.
