Can someone with a do me a favour and see if webtorrent-hybrid works on it? Pleasethanks

@christianbundy sorry to bother you on here for tech support, but I'm experimenting with ssb-client and trying to read my private messages. Is there a simple equivalent of the cli command "ssb-server private.unbox [encrypted data]" that I can use in my code?

Showerthought: Most western states are just as able to build a hospital solely to deal with in a week or two as China is. If we did it though, we'd realise we could solve homelessness and the climate crisis in a matter of weeks too and we can't have that.

Me setting up a peertube instance yesterday: I wish there was some content. I clicked autofollow, but nothing happened.

Me visiting my peertube instance today: Oh no my instance is completely full of shit.

Fwiw, I don't care about the piracy, but I'd just rather it didn't push out OC.

The corporate media is the enemy of the working class. I say that as a journalist

The goal of the corporate media isn't to inform people—that's incidental. The goal is to make money, boost ad revenue, manufacture consent and shape public opinion to conform to capitalist ideology

We just lost the country because old people don't fact check.

Centralised social media needs to die.
Do you have any recommendations for project management tools which would be easy to use for non-tech people, a la trello?

Not only is this story the best news, I love the way the preview text cuts off at the end


Looking through ten years of mobile phone videos to see if there's anything worth sticking on peertube. Don't know if it's making me happy or sad. So much funny shit with people I haven't seen for years :/

It might also be a good non scummy alternative to to put the videos that people I follow really want to promote in my subscriptions feed.

Maybe needs some kind of republish feature that acts like a retoot. All these mirrors of the same video aren't really necessary and they diminish the interactions with the original.

Basically: compromise! Doesn't mean big, morally dubious compromise. Doesn't mean permanent, written-in-stone compromise. Doesn't mean "politics means you have to make The Hard Decisions™" compromise. Doesn't even mean compromise with liberals or centrists or god forbid fascists.

All it means is maybe don't go out of your way to make distinctions between yourself and other leftists.

I feel like I should tell the story of my current geeky tech saga, and that I should do it here.

TLDR: I have been trying to de-Google my phone, and it has been a lesson in the penetrating evils of surveillance lockdown we inhabit.


When 1.0 is released, and people are encouraged to create new instances on the , is the equivalent of a subreddit going to be a domain or a hash tag or something else? Will one account be able to post new articles to multiple instances?

Remember that Gab is a sinking ship and they're basically grabbing onto Mastodon like a parasite in a desperate attempt to get attention from the "drama" of doing so.

Torba has no self-awareness to see how pathetic it looks that his master race ass is incompetent at making a working website so he has to resort to using software made by a Jew instead.

App devs will block their domains, server admins will block their domains, and that'll be the end of that.

I know beauty is in the in the eye of the beholder and that, but the people on reddit that are saying soviet republic isn't a pretty game are objectively wrong.

I don't know what the tags are on here.

Hate is profitable. Massive platforms "optimize for engagement," with algorithmic recommendations for every bit of content or action, from "you might also like" to prioritizing things that will get you to click, comment, share. They won't fix it. It's working just fine for them.

I think I'm gonna go undercover on the right by blaming the fall of Rome on anything I don't like.

The roman empire collapsed because skepta let asap rocky talk him into using R&B hooks.
