Pinned toot

I joined .Social during, what will be known as, the great transhumance of April 2017. But it's time for me to move again. I've come to find .town as a place where I would feel at home. It's also a way for me to find a smaller community while still staying connected to the rest of the . And I look forward to that. So please click the follow button at @xuv if you want to stay in touch.

À mes amis francophones, j'ai déménagé. Je vous invite donc à me suivre sur @xuv .town.

À tout de suite?

Hello Merveille.Town. I'm really happy to join you. I'm in the process of moving from @xuv. Once I'm all set in, I'll be properly doing an introduction. In the meantime, looking forward to read you.

I kind of feel bad for the guy who has the account @toot@twitter.com

In order to fight against , large instances should just turn on subscription by invitation only.

Large instances become an interesting target for spammers. Small instances, not so much. Those brand new spam accounts are looking for the largest audience. Since they are not followed by anyone, their spammy content will probably not reach anyone beyond the instance where they set themselves.

The situation on .social is out of control. The local timeline is unusable. Makes me really consider a move to another .

Et puisque tu t’intéresses au #Vote, est-ce que tu connais le #JugementMajoritaire ?

Si non ou juste de nom, je te recommande de t'y intéresser car à ma connaissance c’est le meilleur #ModeDeScrutin que l’on ait — en théorie et en pratique :
- lechoixcommun.fr
- mieuxvoter.fr

Et de mon côté, j’ai écrit deux textes de #VulgarisationScientifique pour en parler autour de moi :
- Une intro : autogeree.net/~julm/txt/jm-int
- Un mémo : autogeree.net/~julm/txt/jm-mem

SPEAKING OF tech/arts things in NYC, this session at the School for Poetic Computation in feb looks amazing sfpc.io/codepaper/

"When we fold, we imbue an inert material with pattern, structure, animation, function, and interface; a crease in paper is a re-programming of the material’s memory. Folded structures give us a means to touch and manipulate difficult problems.... With an increased knowledge of folding mechanisms can we build more sustainable, ecologically-aware technology?"

.social is facing quite an annoying problem recently. Some has been hitting the instance since a few days, posting a toot every 5s pointing to the same site. I've been reporting multiple accounts following the same pattern. I wonder what strategies can be put in place to prevent this because, apparently, whoever wrote that bot keeps it running 24/7 with quite some "success".

Found a nice trick to save readable webpages. Use "Toggle Reader View" from and then save as . Magic.

For our Ethical Tech Meetup in #NYC tomorrow, I'll have the pleasure to moderate a conversation on stage with Astra Taylor, author of "The People’s Platform: Taking Back Power and Culture in the Digital Age" meetup.com/Ethical-Tech/events

Please join us, if you can. And grab her book. It accurately paints the portrait of this digital world we are in with all its contradictions and paradoxes while demystifying the promises of a more democratic culture these open networks were supposed to bring.

Gros coup de clean à Radio Campus... Des années qu'on en parlait !

Les CD sont aux mains des archéo-mélomanes et les grandes bandes magnétiques (si..si.. on a encore des km d'histoires à parcourir..) cherche lecteur Revox fonctionnel.
Les 2 d'ici sont grillés.
Qui possède encore ce genre d'exhume-trésor...?
Qui sait où ça se trouve dans Bruxelles.....?
Many thx in advance !
