tech subtoot; I continue to hate protobuf
protobuf is two full orders of magnitude more complex than a json parser/serializer *including reflection hacks and pojo serializer systems* because it conflates serialization with network transfer, and winds up being bad at both. And it complicates that again with language portability, and winds up being bad at that too.
Cybrespace is an instance of Mastodon, a social network based on open web protocols and free, open-source software. It is decentralized like e-mail.
