I have multiple but one of my biggest ones:

Build an entire suite of services which can replace the popular Google/microsoft/facebook (etc) services.

Of course: privacy respecting, preferrably everything possible end-to-end encrypted.

Because fuck mass surveillance and those companies and if I can do anything to fuck them (quite literally) and help people getting to user friendly alternatives, I'll do the best I can.

    Imho we need an even better connection in the community to prevent someone rebuilding the same thing again because the original thing lacks one feature...

    Except so many “consumers” find value in the exact privacy-violating “services” Google/Microsoft offer. And those services can’t really exist fully without tracking tons of personal info.

    @stackodev To both those things: that doesn't make it right.

    I always wonder... How much computational power had google to run its search engine 20 years ago?
    Today I can't see any self hosted search engine, if not for meta search engines.
    One day I found yaci, a distributed search engine, I tried it, but it needs a lot of work, or maybe a bigger user base.
    I want to run the search-engine locally! How much network does it consume? How much memory?

    @linuxxx it is a metasearch engine! If I understood correctly it uses other search engines to perform a search.
    I am thinking about the real search engine
