Hackerspring is a decentralized social content aggregator. I'm helping out with it and am looking for alpha testers! Sign up at http://hackerspring.com

HackerSpring is a content aggregation platform hosted on a distributed network.

All content is stored on IPFS in a distributed data structure. The protocol has no central point of coordination. Nodes broadcast their additions to the network to each other in realtime. Anyone is free to run their own network node if they don't want to use ours.


Interesting idea. Some questions:

1. Who's running this site? The domain was registered privately, and fair enough, but I'd like to know who's in charge.

2. Who are your targeted userbase? In other words, are you looking for tech savvy, a particular ideology, etc.?

3. Free speech as a goal is all well and good, but the vague statement about the end about they "must adhere to global rules, regulations and laws" could mean a lot. Reddit has struggled significantly (and clumsily) with how to deal with this. Global rules are different, so whose apply? How do we predict what is and isn't allowed, or what we might be exposed to?
