What is "good enough"?


This app looks really promising. It's not just a tech demo — it's got a good user interface and support too. If you're interested in a decentralized internet, try it out, and report bugs.


This app is great to use day to day, and many people do so. It is more private and more resilient than alternatives. Using it will help create a more competitive market.

This app is not only strategically important for decentralization, it competes extremely well against alternatives that your friends already use. Tell them about it.
