    1. InterPlanetary Wayback (ipwb) facilitates permanence and collaboration in web archives by disseminating the contents of WARC files into the IPFS network. IPFS is a peer-to-peer content-addressable file system that inherently allows deduplication and facilitates opt-in replication. ipwb splits the header and payload of WARC response records before disseminating into IPFS to leverage the deduplication, builds a CDXJ index with references to the IPFS hashes returned, and combines the header and payload from IPFS at the time of replay.
    1. This website converts any IPFS-hosted file to an HLS file and reuploads it to IPFS.

    1. John wants to upload a PDF file to IPFS but only give Mary accessHe puts his PDF file in his working directory and encrypts it with Mary’s public keyHe tells IPFS he wants to add this encrypted file, which generates a hash of the encrypted fileHis encrypted file is available on the IPFS networkMary can retrieve it and decrypt the file since she owns the associated private key of the public key that was used to encrypt the fileA malicious party cannot decrypt the file because they lack Mary’s private key
    1. Browse files stored on IPFS easily and securely with Cloudflare’s Distributed Web Gateway without downloading software. Serve your own content hosted on IPFS from a custom domain over HTTPs.
    1. A peer-to-peer hypermedia protocol to make the web faster, safer, and more open.

    1. This is a picture of the first HTTP web server in the world. It was Tim Berners-Lee's NeXT computer at CERN. Pasted on the machine is an ominous sticker: "This machine is a server, do not power it down!!". The reason it couldn't be powered down is that web sites on other servers were starting to link to it. Once they linked to it, they then depended on that machine continuing to exist. If the machine was powered down, the links stopped working. If the machine failed or was no longer accessible at the same location, a far worse thing happened: the chain between sites becomes permanently broken, and the ability to access that content is lost forever. That sticker perfectly highlights the biggest problem with HTTP: it erodes.

      This is interesting, since the opening video for https://hypothes.is/ mentions the early web also - in this case, for its annotation features that were removed.

      It seems to me that hypothes.is is even more powerful used on IPFS content identified by hash since that underlying content cannot change.

      Thanks to both services I'm doing exactly this right now!

    2. I think this is exactly what I've wanted - and what a lot of people have wanted - for a long time. It's certainly not the first time I've seen someone call for using hashes for referring to files, but the design and implementation behind this look like they do a lot of things right.

    1. ipfs cat /ipfs/QmW2WQi7j6c7UgJTarActp7tDNikE4B2qXtFCfLPdsgaTQ/cat.jpg >cat.jpg

      Same with this one. Dropping the /ipfs/ fixed it.

    2. hash=`echo "I <3 IPFS -$(whoami)" | ipfs add -q`

      Also, this gives me an error from ipfs add:

      $ hash=`echo "I <3 IPFS -$(whoami)" | ipfs add -q`
      Error: Argument 'path' is required
      
      Use 'ipfs add --help' for information about this command

    1. This is neat, as I understand it's like kio slaves in KDE or GIO, FUSE, etc.

      Might be useful for exposing some of the tagged distributed storage systems as browsable filesystems with JIT access.
