need #help with federation testing:
when I look for @firstname.lastname@example.org in the search bar in Mastodon, I don't see anything. But the Mastodon server requests and is served the activitypub json.
What am I missing? Does anyone know? Boost if you think your friends might know.
(That's a throwaway account for this example; don't bother following it)
rms, a defense of free software
And relatedly, something I wrote in 2011: https://www.harihareswara.net/sumana/2011/03/22/0
"There are self-constraining ideologies like veganity or chastity that modern society at least theoretically understands, even if some cohorts scoff. Then there are the practices that always require an introduction."

Mastodon folks might be particularly interested in my response in this MetaFilter thread -- someone basically asked whether they should give up on Linux entirely, and I replied.
appreciating https://www.filmreroll.com/ and https://www.metafilter.com/146690/Erowid-Recruiter for laughs right now
do you or someone you know have experience / expertise in any of the following: Linux 3.10 + 4.9 kernels on MIPS64, cross compiling linux kernel and userland, Cavium Octeon SDK?
I have needs!
...and (US/western Europe market rates) money! to give this person or persons, so that they may continue to survive in this oppressive capitalist system.
boosts appreciated. please DM me here. I don't care where you are situated in the world, personally.

Do you help run a federated or decentralised service in Europe -- or know someone who does? Please pass this link on. It's the application to meet politicians to discuss how the EU's copyright filters (Article 13/17) will be implemented. I worry about a backroom deal struck between Facebook/Google that excludes the next generation of open Net services: https://ec.europa.eu/digital-single-market/en/news/organisation-stakeholder-dialogue-application-article-17-directive-copyright-digital-single .. Please speak up!
Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.
I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.
Boosts gratefully appreciated.
so who are the artists/activists/engineers in NYC working on decentralized networking (broadly construed—peer to peer, activitypub-esque stuff, mesh networking, gopher revivals, etc.)?
(I feel like I probably know most of them [and maybe even had them as students] but for some reason I can't come up with a quick list)
The fight for diversity, equality and inclusion is the fight for software freedom. Our movement will only be successful if it includes everyone. RMS does not speak for these values.
request for info re RMS email
I read https://medium.com/@selamie/remove-richard-stallman-fec6ec210794 . I believe I saw a couple folks on the birdsite (in replies on RMS-related threads) mention that they are on the CSAIL-related mailing list; they verified that the email quoted in the Medium post is authentic. Can't find those tweets now. Can any of you confirm the authenticity of the email, or point to others who have done so?
I'm just double-checking as due diligence, not because I significantly doubt the authenticity.
