Collaborative blog

Apr 15 01:49 [raw]

I want to start a blog. I will regularly write articles on crypto, privacy, policy, and opinion. However I don't want to just have my own blog. I would like to find others who would be interested in publishing anonymously on the same blog. The blog would face clearnet, and all submissions would be via bitmessage to preserve anonymity of authors. Authors would use pseudonymns. The clearnet face would have ability for comments to articles via both bitmessage and social media (discus). Each author would moderate comments for his or her own articles. The blog would have RSS feed with fulltext for easy backup of articles in case it gets pulled down, so it could be quickly resurrected from the feed backups if censored. If agreeable several authors would maintain their own mirrors that update from the main blog's rss feed with comment forms outlinking back to the main blog. This way one disgruntled admin could not make the whole blog disappear. I believe such a blog if active and getting several posts per week, in time would drive some interest in bitmessage and privacy issues. Please propose ideas on how to organize the workflow and creation of an acceptable stylesheet for posts.

That's a cool idea. But remember that as we are all running after time, you need to have something really usefull and simple to use in term of process.

If you have articles maintained by their authors, then you will need un/pw combos and an email to validate, server logs get created, and other things which would blow the anonymity part away, or am I missing something?

> If you have articles maintained by their authors, then you will need un/pw combos and an email to validate, server logs get created, and other things which would blow the anonymity part away, or am I missing something? Yes you are missing something. Here are quotes from the original posts: "all submissions would be via bitmessage to preserve anonymity of authors." "All blog management would be via bitmessage "shortcodes."" ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ I mentioned in the opening post that shortcodes would be sent via bitmessage to manage author accounts and articles, similar to BitText but geared toward a clearnet-facing site. Everything would be managed via shortcodes sent via Bitmessage. Basically you would send a command shortcode in the subject line and the parameters in the message text. A simple API command-line client could be made to simplify it. The blog server would receive the bitmessages and execute the commands, updates, edits, etc. Blog subscribers would simply subscribe to bitmessage broadcasts of the authors. The trick here is to keep it simple, preventing attack surface potential. I want to create the platform, but I will not start unless there is a substantial interest in it.

Collaborative blog [chan] general Apr 18 11:44 [raw] > simple to use in term of process. House stylesheet with very simple rules. Plaintext or markdown for all submissions. Submissions are automatically approved, posted to the blog, and the mirror blogs pull from the rss feed. If a troll gets in, we just delete all his posts and ban the troll's address. Comments would work the same way. All blog management would be via bitmessage "shortcodes."

I only missed the one word "shortcodes", that was my mistake and ignorace. I am new at this and never heard of the term. I understood the submissions would be via bitmessage but the maintenace via the shortcodes flew right by me. Like I said, never heard the term and I will not make that mistake again.

no need to strafe yourself ;) "shortcodes" is common parlance in blogging engines that allow short commands inserted in the content that execute php/python/ruby functions. It basically allows a writer to embed commands in the content without messing with the underlying programming language.
