People talk like blocking fascists automatically turns any space into an "echo chamber". The fediverse we've built up over the years is proof of the contrary. I've learned and grown through this place. I've been able to apply that knowledge in real life. We've got something real here, and I think it's with fighting to preserve.

@rain The year is 2030. Your secure connection to your newspaper's ad server is resolved by dns tunnelled over https, itself tunneled over json, tunnelled over https. If the 17 MitM didn't catch what you were reading, the malware in your smart mouse is sure to do so.

Reminder that not only are Electron apps slow, but they also rely on proprietary software (portions of the chromium codebase). Atom, VSCodium, Riot "Desktop", are all guilty of this. All of them ping home to Google because of this.

Also related: There is nothing cross platform or native about releasing your web app in a little Google Chrome window. Frankly, that's just a deceptive claim. If it can be locally run in a browser, release it that way so the user can use their own browser.

Hi everyone!

ForgeFed is a project aiming to define a protocol and a vocabulary for federation of project hosting and collaboration platforms (forges), and get it implemented in the existing forges such as GitLab CE, Gitea and so on.

Federation is based on ActivityPub with some tweaks and new vocabulary :)

I'm working on a demo, implementing federation in a forge called Vervis. Earlier today I deployed 2 test instances for this! More details and links soon :)

Hello fediverse!

We decided to have an account here to share updates about our work on project hosting federation. And this is the first post :)

There are various independent projects related to project federation; the one I'm working on is based on ActivityPub, with some extra bits and extensions. And I'm excited about it!

Comments on our posts here are very welcome! We have a Discourse forum too, and IRC channels (which can be accessed via Matrix too!).

See you in the next posts :)

Today is the day we commemorate when they opened the tomb and found Jesus' mob spawner and had to get rid of it before all of Israel would be covered in Jesuses

@florian @lastfuture @loke @phessler okay, but the source does not support OP's claim. And actually, I like the idea of what they try:
1. It will have multiple resolvers.
2. All resolvers have to adhere to a strict privacy policy.
3. It will be localized (different per locale), so the argument of big roundtrips is addressed
4. It may be enabled only in some regions (for now) – likely where DNS spoofing or so happens frequently.

It just occurred to me that there is no such thing as #SurveillanceCapitalism, it's just #Capitalism doing what it's always done in different ways. I mean you can look at it as People Farming on the one hand. On the other, it's just companies like #Google and #Facebook getting free labor from us to create a product for Advertisers. As if this was the first time Capitalists have exploited people for their voluntary labor under false pretences. *cough* #MLMs *cough*

How about a Funkwhale for ebooks? Is repurposing Funkwhale a viable project you think? Ebooks are media too. 🤔@eliotberriot
