Found this on mastodon:
I sometimes imagine that somewhere there must be a Ministry for Messing Up the Internet. It would be like a Monty Python sketch.
Each day a new idea would arrive in the intray of an official who looks like a young John Cleese. They would form a large pile of papers.
[reads] "Make a protocol so complicated that nobody can understand it. No the Sematic Web has already been tried".
[reads] "Ban all the cat photos for spurious copyright reasons. No, we already have an upload filter in progress to do that".
[reads] "Fill Tim Berners-Lee's socks with elephants. No - much too silly."
"Ah yes, [reads] make a giant man in the middle that everything on the internet has to go through like a sausage machine and get squirted out on the other side, hopefully in the correct order. Bernard, get Cloudflare on the phone immediately."
In the last weeks there has been some turmoil on the Fediverse (Mastodon, GNUSocial, Pleroma etc) about "how nazis prefer a certain kind of software and therefore must the developer of the software take action".
One solution is to make software "harder to install so nazis can't install one"
The thing is, that people like that do a better job of spreading the views and the message of the self-proclaimed nazis. I wish people just started to ignore them.8
Girl I follow on Mastodon was struggling with something on zsh. I suggested she try fish. Girl goes badshit crazy go nuts saying, "I'm tried of faggots telling me to use fish!"
First, it's 2018. That word was like inapropes in like 2004.
Second, I made the mistake of saying I like fish and that it's awesome. After more batshit replies, I decided to walk away. I commented on other people's toots and ignored her.
You don't win fights on social media. So the next time you really want to respond to that reddit thread or toot or tweet, pull up your to do list and go work on something you want to for yourself.10
I have multiple (in no particular order) :
Nextcloud : It was an idea that I had in my head as well - to take on corporations like Google in the space of personal cloud. Be free, open-source and put the users in charge.
Gitlab : The most open and transparent company that I've ever come across. And they work 99% remote. They've got features that no other players in the space have. All while putting users in control.
Fediverse social media - Mastodon, GNU Social, Diaspora (soon) : For taking a major step in the direction of putting the users in control of their data; all while enabling a decentralized social network.
Ruby : An open community and building a programming language that runs a lot of software of the world.
Python : The oldest thriving community that has a special place in the development community (and my heart)
Mastodon is an open-source, ads-free and decentralized Twitter. You should try it.
Nice, nextcloud just added support for ActivityPub and that means federation against Mastodon, GNUSocial, Pleroma and soon Diaspora10
Anyone on open source social networks? E.g Diaspora* and Mastodon.
I'm diving deep down the Freedom rabbit hole. It's a whole new world.3
Is anyone here using Mastodon or anything else from the Fediverse network?
I really want to change from using twitter to mastodon but I can't find all the security researchers and devs and generally cool people on mastodon.
Who are you guys and gals following? Are you using it exclusively or in addition to twitter?3
It's great that people finally start to boycott big tech social media, but I really don't want your brain deprived thought vomit on my mastodon feed.
Guess I'll look into hosting my own instance soonish1
Hey guys (and girls (and people who dont identify as either of them)),
As some people here might know I am currently in the planning phase of an open source alternative for Thingiverse. After gathering information on multiple platforms Ive heard people really wanting it to be decentralized (a bit like Mastodon).
I really like that idea and thus want to implement it, does any of you have experience or knowledge of decentralized systems programming? I have trouble getting information on how this works. If someone is willing to help me explain a few things like "How does one instance retrieve data from other instances? How does it know a new instance is running somewhere?"
So if anyone knows a great source for information or can and wants to help me via a chat session please respond below6
Vultr's Block Storage in New Jersey has been down all day. My Mastadon node is hosted there. I'm jonesing for my Fediverse fix!2
Hey guys and gals, question for y'all. What's your opinion on Mastodon? Torch of the spirit of open source and decentralization? Good idea, flawed implementation? Wretched hive of scum and villany? Let me know!
Just found out about HookTube and Mastodon (I'm @digitaldina) and I was wondering if anyone else knows some good Dev/security related apps/sites that are useful? Also, I'm tinkering with app dev now and I'm wondering if any of you would recommend starting out using Firebase? Is it any good?
Please let me know in the comments I'd love to find out :)7
I wonder, how many of you have an account on the fediverse(Mastodon/pleroma)?
And between who have it, how many have their own instance instead of relying on existing ones?11
I was planning on migrating my Mastodon instance to a new node, but then I looked carefully at my deployment scripts. I had built in support for multiple servers, but not everything supports it, and the configuration is messy now that I think about it.
Now I need to write a bunch of tests, and then refactor a bunch of my code. Hopefully I can get this done before I run out of space on my Mastodon instance. It's gonna be a fun day. :-P
Just imagine what would be if devRant was open source…
Also, what would be if it was federated as well, using ActivityPub… well in that case there is Mastodon, but what could be possibly different from it?5
Why is it hard to improve privacy on IM?
I am improving again my online privacy these days. I was not using Twitter anymore for a few years, so I created a Mastodon account these days. I am still find interesting people over there, but it was quite simple.
But for IM, things get harder. What to use? XMPP? Matrix? Both appears to be good and bad sides. And it makes no sense I just install any of them and try to connect to random users. I actually need to make people I know to use the software as well.
Not only that, I will still need to keep other APPs on my phone, as they are necessary for some people. So I will still need a bunch of installed software.
