Our end plan in the #OMN is that all the content is redundantly stored in the network in a #KISS way, so traditional backup is less important -when it goes wrong, and it will sometimes as we are home hosting. Just boot up a new noid put your hashtags and user info in and all your content will be sucked back in a #lossy good anufe way. This makes home hosting work well enough to scale outward to build a #openweb
@witchescauldron You do realize that all our data is HORRIBLY centralized and thus could vanish at any moment. The "could" is just a big cop run data centre that can and will burn down come the revolution/evolution/climatechoas sunarmy.
My computer crashed beyond repair and when I got a replacement, I got all my SSB data back from my friends. I did need to have saved my SSB identity, but I had done that.
Pretty geeky otherwise, but you might want to look at the gossip protocol.
