My biggest DWeb proposal I've been meaning to proof of concept: Avatar Auth. Hear me out: Drive social identity keys from folks' Avatar photo files. The process of cropping/panning/resizing/curving the edges of an avatar is already a sort of hash algorithm. You get a sort of reverse steganography from data lost that can form a decent Key derivation input. Original file protection is no worse than most password schemes and better than some.

Smeap is the honk of a flamingo. Smeap was also at least once, a storybook land at the weird intersection of TV ads and the worlds they seem to inhabit. It was a place where wars were fought over sodas, and talking polar bears had very good reasons to guard soda machines. It was a place where rainbow color candies were harvested for electric power. It was a place where a prairie dog might move to big city inhabited mostly by Pink Flamingos to follow her dream to be private investigator, only to get slowly entangled in the seedy underbelly of crime and prohibited soda trading of the Neon Flamingos and their syndicate. Social media at times lately feels like it has become almost entirely seedy underbelly with very little upside. Maybe it needs more storybook worlds.
