There has been talk lately of a new way to do social media—a decentralized social media, one not controlled by third-party entities. It’s called nostr. The name stems from an acronym (Notes and Other Stuff Transmitted by Relay). But what is nostr really? And what are the pros and cons? To find out, we consulted with somebody who has been on the scene since nearly the beginning. He’s one of the hosts of a new podcast called Thank God for Nostr. Preferring to remain anonymous, he goes by the name of “hodlbod” on social media.
