I managed to have https://github.com/ssb-ngi-pointer/go-ssb-room running locally just fine, but ultimately I wanted to try to package this as a cloudron app, but this code being Go & still quite in development (& beyond my know-how) I couldn't get the nginx/tls part going on a public IP server :/

L’inventeur du web met aux enchères un #NFT du code source du World Wide Web

I keep thinking NFT is a monumental loss of time and energy stolen from actually disruptive use of the blockchain that could seriously bother the centralized financial system. Instead, we'll hop from one hype to the next, letting every new possibility be eaten by the current system, absorbing any threat to its monopoly.

We're loosing precious time !

When you think about it for a minute, it's quite interesting that the economic trading behavior of a minority with the majority of assets is being presented as "the invisible hands of the market" as if "the markets" had their own natural behavior with causes and effects, beyond the humans and the high frequency trading algorithms that power the global economy.

We're lead to believe these "markets" "free will" is the ultimate expression of a free democratic society when in fact its an organized scheme to bypass democratic laws and effectively run a parallel economy that rules the world, beyond the very interests of the planet and its inhabitants.

Market ideology/doctrine shouldn't be considered as a universal mathematic law but instead, like the algorithms that increasingly power decisions and thus the world we live in, economic policies is equal to code, code is equal to law and law is politics, politics affect us all and they should be governed by accountability, transparency and democracy.

That's not the case for the "free market" capitalism that we have today.

Over the years I have starred quite a bunch of github code repo, this is an ordered list of all my favs : https://github.com/rmdes/starred/blob/master/README.md

So finding Soundcloud RSS feed is really a pain, it should not be, RSS should be provided upfront and auto-discovery provided when possible, instead I have to dig into the code and find crazy patterns to discover RSS feeds at soundcloud, so if you're having the same issue, here is how I proceeded :

https://feeds.soundcloud.com/users/soundcloud:users:597834/sounds.rss
See the number above ? you can inspect the code around the Profile picture of any Soundcloud user and use the number associated to the profile image to get the user ID, once you have it, place your userID this way:
https://feeds.soundcloud.com/users/soundcloud:users:2999191/sounds.rss

But you're still confronted to another problem : Soundcloud does not add new tracks/episodes automatically to the RSS feed, you can configure it this way so that new uploads will always be part of the RSS feed but by default design, you have to specify it at each upload.
