Hello fediverse!

I would like to introduce Jejune -- a work in progress (primarily) personal AP server that is ultimately meant to feel a little bit like Tumblr, which has been a somewhat "secret" project in collaboration with some other lovely fediverse developers (such as @dansup ) for the past year design-wise.

That aspect will become more obvious in the coming days as we develop a frontend plugin for the engine.

Jejune has some support for Mastodon clients (though this is meant as a temporary measure) as well, so you can do basic posting and replying while away from the computer.

Jejune is also planned to act as a SOLID hub in the near future, and is internally built entirely on Linked Data, RDF and other related concepts. We live, eat and breathe linked data and SOLID internally inside Jejune already, from the first commit!

To build a scalable and secure fediverse, we must step back and take a look at the design decision made in the past.

To address security, Jejune is built on a foundation of consent-based interaction. Jejune is explicitly designed to fail safe -- if it cannot determine the appropriate audience for a message, it will drop the message instead of publishing it.

To address scalability, Jejune does not use an SQL database, but instead uses a graph-based object store which is heavily inspired by RDF and Git called JejuneFS.

JejuneFS can optionally be replicated into distributed filesystems such as IPFS, allowing for the creation of a resilient infrastructure for your personal (and, optionally, collaborators') data.

At present, Jejune is pre-alpha software, but is already functionally federating. We call it pre-alpha because we have not hit all of our key requirements for an alpha release yet, notably, we do not have a good moderation toolkit yet.

This is a high priority item for us, and will come immediately after the core engine has been proven out, but until that is implemented, we cannot recommend production use of Jejune.

Well, I have already said a lot already. If you want to find out more, why not stop by our Matrix room at

We hebben nog wat handtekeningen nodig in Friesland. Moet ik de mensen volgende week thuis ophalen, en naar het gemeentehuis brengen?

friendly reminder that:

- you do not need to think someone is the scum of the earth to block them or mute them
- being blocked or muted does not mean you are a bad person in any way shape or form
- you have a right to surround yourself with people you enjoy, indeed, you have a right to happiness
- people liking you doesn't mean you are a good person
- you liking something or someone doesn't mean that that thing is good

it is a misconception I think a lot of people hold, and it's not truth.

And now we have the captions and transcript up on our site for the Small is Beautiful #3 livestream.

This was a really great discussion, so much fascinating detail on the strategies for introducing more ethical (and easy-to-use!) computers into schools.

@dansup there should be a follow button on profiles if you are not logged in. Was missing the button until I noticed I wasn't logged in. After the follow you could put the login or register form and then redirect to the profile page with the follow action.

The cockpit drain of our boat runs by the engine room and under the floor to a thru-hull(red), we wondering why it doesn't go straight out over the waterline?

Any idea #sailing fedi?

🇬🇧Will we be able to contact #Whatsapp users via other messaging services in the future? Just discussed this with regulatory authority, who will decide. They are not convinced yet - although 49% of Germans are in favour of this #interoperability. #WhatsappPrivacy

Incidentally, I love it that Mastodon discourages URL shortners. All URLs count as 23 chars, no more, no less. Much better than obfuscating them.
