Hey everyone as of today I'm to @rra@post.lurk.org it was very nice to hang out here and inspiring enough to help set up yet another instance over at post.lurk.org. Its an instance for around cultural freedom, experimental, new media , net and computational , and things like that.

I'll keep this account dormant for lurking purposes. If I'm following you you probably got a follow request from the new account!

as long as two servers still talk, the fediverse lives

@RyBn not much news today. Busy working for the man. But I did start on the screenless mastodon interface.

Maandag houdt Facebook Liberation Army een bijeenkomst in De Waag in Amsterdam. Wat zijn de alternatieven? Is mastodon iets? Werkt diaspora nog? Hoe moet je afkicken van Facebook? Etc. waag.org/nl/event/facebook-far

โ€œToday at Facebook [art] works to create the illusion that the public sphere and the firm are one and the same. It is precisely this illusion on which surveillance capitalism depends.โ€ โ€“ Fred Turner

This is spot on and an engrossing read on how surveillance capitalism works to legitimise itself via its aesthetics.

I don't come to Mastodon to read Retweets. I come here to read Toots

Dearest Bram,
You embraced projects for a better world, often you were the first. You gave us your confidence, you defended OSP's project, and your sharp mind helped us advance. And there are so many like us. Today we mourn together.
We miss you.

Poll following recent discussions about DM privacy on Mastodon: Should the Mastodon webapp compose screen warn that DMs are stored on the server (accessible by admins)? strawpoll.me/15387726

has anyone informed the crowd yet that are in fact public and rely on other servers respecting their status as ? This is a scandal of epic proportions waiting to happen. It will be extremely bad press for mastodon/#fediverse and I'd hate to see that. While this is something that will only be fixed in the long term, informing users should start now. Misleading language also really doesn't help.. @Gargron @noelle @HerraBRE @lain

I teach a class at NYU called Reading and Writing Electronic Text that is half introduction to Python, half introduction to computational poetry. the syllabus is here: rwet.decontextualize.com/ and the tutorial/lecture notes are here: github.com/aparrish/rwet I've taught the class many times before, but this year I'm revising all the notes and porting everything to Python 3/Jupyter Notebook. I've also made entirely new tutorials on dictionaries, RNNs and keyword extraction. just wanted to share!

Really, asking "what should replace Facebook" is putting things the wrong way around.

A more interesting way to ask the question is, "what did Facebook replace."

People used to build their own websites. People used to have blogs. People used USENET which was truly distributed and un-censorable.

Facebook and Google took the open internet and open standards and monetized and made everything crappy. Enough of that. Nothing should replace Facebook, it's done, stick a fork in it.

@pettter @deadsuperhero Yes!

IMO this is the sort of response the community should be having to the news about Facebook and CA.

Now is not the time to go out and tell the masses to abandon Facebook and use us instead. We're really not ready for that.

Now is the time to ponder how we can improve the Free networks so they are more secure and cannot be abused the way CA abused Facebook.
