Schade das #Conversations noch bzw. nur auf Twitter aktiv ist, und nicht auf #mastodon
 
It's the first I've heard of this project and only from Paul's perspective. If it's how he tells it, it's worrisome, really. I have to read it slowly and contrast other sources when I can.

A critical FAQ about EUnomia

The #EU is currently funding a research with about 2.45 mio €, that includes a research within and about the #fediverse.

The project is called #EUnomia. Their overall goal as they claim is to counter #fakenews.

Their partner are involved within the sector of mass #surveilience, law enfocments, military and social control.

I've done some research about them and their partners, what I found is highly concerning me.

To make these information accesable for others, I've wrote a critical FAQ.

PixelFed

N00b #question:

I just created a #Pixelfed account and everything is hunky-dory, except that it doesn't seem to federate with anything! Not with other Pixelfed nodes and not with other federated platforms. All I can see is the local results - and that's slim pickings at best. Is this a permissions issue related to my pixelfed server of choice only?

So, to rephrase this as a question: how do I find content from other Pixelfed instances, and how do I follow people on different #ActivityPub platforms?

Ich suche zurzeit Listen von Instanzen dezentraler Netzwerke (#mastodon, #xmpp/#jabber/ #matrix) und Plattformen. Habt ihr da Hinweise?
Die GEMA geht ja zurzeit noch davon aus, es mit einer übersichtlichen Zahl an Plattformbetreibern zu tun zu haben (#artikel13 #artikel17).

Habt ihr da Hinweise für mich?

Happy Birthday dear #Fediverse sorry to be a day late 😉 but we celebrated yesterday. Almost grown up now with 11 🎂

Leute! Ich geb den anderen ja Recht, die ebenfalls darauf hingewiesen haben:

Meckert nicht bloß über #TwitterSperrt, sondern nutzt doch einfach Alternativen wie #Mastodon auf nerdculture.de oder #Friendica auf nerdica.net und kommt ins #Fediverse!
 
Gegen #Twittersperrt hilft übrigens #Mastodon, #Diaspora oder #Friendica. Die armen Irren (aka #Nerd|s) erzählen euch das schon seit Jahren, aber ihr wollt ja nicht hören, ergo müsst ihr jetzt lernen durch Schmerzen.
 
If someone from #pleroma, #gnusocial, #hubzilla could reply to this thread :
https://friendica.valvin.fr/redir/2?url=display/7f2cc12a-135c-d32a-775a-478002420413

with "this a test reply from xxxx" where xxxx is your network it would be great 😀
I did #Mastodon and #Diaspora but if I've forgotten other network who can read this message your are welcome 😀

the goal is to illustrate the network connectivity of #Friendica

thank you 😀
 
Part of the #Federation idea is also #decentralisation, which means that it would be best not to use always the large instances e.g. for #Mastodon, but also smaller ones.
Here’s an invite code:
 
Ist Reichweite wirklich die richtige Frage?
Qualität oder Quantitát?
Zensuresistenz oder Abhängigkeit von der Willfährigkeit eines Monopols?

Um genau zu sein scheint mir hat diaspora das "Armdrücken" der dezentralen Netzwerke verloren.
Mir scheint #activitypub und scheinbar #mastodon haben das rennen gemacht.
(oh sh** jetzt hab ich kommentiert ..)
 
Hello!

Είπα να δώσω πρόσφατα μια ευκαιρία στο ελεύθερο κοινωνικό δίκτυο Mastodon και οφείλω να πω ότι εντυπωσιάστηκα.

Οπότε, μπορείτε να με βρείτε πλέον κι εκεί, όσοι θέλετε! ;)

Ich war schon lange immer mal wieder ermutigt worden, Comics auch auf Mastodon zu posten und ich nehme mal an, viele Leute, die das nett fänden, stammen aus der Community hier.

Mein bisheriger Eindruck war bloß, dass keine riesige deutschsprachige Community auf Mastodon existiert (natürlich kann ich mich irren). Aber vorerst hab ich mich entschieden, dort einfach Comics auf englisch zu teilen. Voilà: https://mastodon.social/@heyokyay

Ihr könnt mich natürlich gern über alles informieren, was ich da vielleicht noch wissen sollte.

Easterhegg 2019 - ActivityPub, the Fediverse, and Everything.

Ja, wir wollen über den ActivityPub sprechen - denn er ist es, der viele populäre fediverse Dienste (z.B. Mastodon) antreibt. Wir werden die Geschichte und Grundstruktur der Spezifikation behandeln. Und dann diskutieren, ob dies ein Fall von XKCD 927 ist oder nicht und ob der Blogbeitrag von Moxie Marlinspike zutrifft. Dieser Vortrag gibt einen vollständigen Überblick über die aktuelle Form des so genannten "ActivityPub".

Yes, we want to talk about ActivityPub - because it's what drives many popular fediverse services (e.g. mastodon). We will cover history and basic structure of the spec. And then discuss whether or not this a case of XKCD 927 and if Moxie Marlinspike's blogpost applies. This talk will provide a complete picture of the current form of whats known as "ActivityPub".

American Football is getting started, so...

#FantasyFootball is getting going too. If anybody on #Friendica #Mastodon #Diaspora #Prolerma #Pixelfed #GNUsocial or any #Federated #ActivityPub user on earth wants to try it, I can be the Commissioner.

I've run leagues in the past and I set the points so that it's hard for a skilled person with advanced game knowledge to have an advantage, and beginners have a real chance at winning. In the past, I did leagues with buy-in and free to enter. Both are equally fun. The buy-in leagues had trophies and all the buy-ins were paid out in prizes; any manager had 50:50 odd's of winning back their buy-in.

Développer son propre outil de travail ?


Avec un peu d'acharnement, j'ai réussi hier à tester #Ulysses, ce logiciel dédié à l' #écriture mais uniquement sur #MacOS (merci #VirtualBox) ; ça faisant deux ans que je voulais m'y frotter… eh bien je suis assez dégoûté, parce que c'est effectivement l' #outil qui correspond le mieux à mes besoins… Sauf qu'il est en prison, payant par abonnement uniquement, code fermé, sur système verrouillé d'identifiants et d'iCloud, sur machines #Apple odieusement chères ; #hackintosh alors ?
Cela étant, très bonne impression à l'usage de #MacOSX #Mojave
le thème sombre est propre, la rationalisation des onglets à travers les logiciels est bienvenue, l' #interface se fait très facilement disparaître, y compris la menubar en haut, l'ensemble apparaît cohérent…

Gros changement après mon utilisation d'il y a quinze ans maintenant sur processeur "G5" apathique… (heureusement, en même temps)

Et je me rends compte aussi de la distance qu'il y a entre cet #os et des #Solus #SolusOS #Slementary #SlementaryOS #Gnome et #Budgie pourtant vaillants (#Ubuntu, #Plasma #Cinnamon et compagnie sont à mes yeux assez catastrophiques en termes de #design #ux)
Reste plusieurs possibilités :pour ne citer que ceux-là…

#autonomisation vs #productivité ?
#développement " #empowerment " ou #folie ?
il y a plein de #moocs #python (j'en ai débuté un, et j'ai quelques notions de codage grâce à #Scratch et #php) qui me font penser que c'est peut-être un tout petit peu possible

il y a l'esprit #gnome et la démarche d' #elementary qui me parlent aussi, et qui m'orienteraient vers #vala :

- https://developer.gnome.org/gnome-devel-demos/stable/beginner.vala.html.fr

Eugen, the creator of Mastodon and admin of the biggest Mastodon server, mastodon.social, talks about the challenges new users might face when they want to register a Mastodon account. In fact these problems aren't limited to Mastodon.

Every user planning to create an account somewhere in the #Fediverse has to make several decisions first:

1. Which platform?

Do I want to settle on #Mastodon, #Diaspora, #Friendica, #Hubzilla, #Pleroma, #Socialhome or one of the more specialised choices? Given that most of these platforms differ in features, chances are high that I can make a choice based on technical facts. Maybe I already know some accounts I want to follow, which might narrow down the list of choices since not all networks are connected (most notably Mastodon and Diaspory can't see each other, so I can either use the one I need or one of the multi-protocol platforms). Even if I can't decide yet, I'll just register one account for every platform.

2. Which server?

Now this might be the harder question. Let's assume I picked a platform and now want to register my account. Which server should I chose and why? For some platforms there are servers that are specialised on single topics, so if, for example, I am an English speaking Open Source evangelist and want to use Mastodon, there is a server that is just right for me.

But what If I have several main interests? There is no special community for people who like knitting and fishing. Or, more likely, what if I can't even decide on my interests right now? See, I'm interested in many things, nothing special though, just want to talk about things. Where should I register?

Of course there are many servers in every network that aren't limited to any set of topics. So I'll just choose the one that most other people already chose, right?

Well, nearly. And that's exactly Eugen's problem here. As a user, you want to use a server that

- is well maintained and is here to stay.
- has some more users so its public timeline isn't empty.

But from a technical view it would be great if users would spread equally over all servers. So I'll just choose the one that has the least users, right?

Well, nearly. Maybe a compromise is the way to go. It could look like this:

- Look for a server with more than one user.
- See if it exists for more than, say, three months.
- Look up the admins, see what they post, ask yourself if you like them.
- Have a look at the server's public timeline.

These tools might help answering a newcomer's questions:

- https://the-federation.info/
- https://fediverse.party/
- https://podupti.me/

But the main question stays: how do you explain this to a passer-by who just wants to quickly create a Fediverse account? Could a landing page featuring a "I'm feeling lucky" button that will automatically pick a random server help?

My personal opinion Mastodon vs Wil Wheaton

The facts I know about:
  • Wil Wheaton (of Star Trek and The Big Bang Theory fame) signed up on mastodon.cloud.
  • His account has been massively reported to the instance admin.
  • Someone on the mastodon.cloud moderation team acted on those reports and banned him from this instance.
  • He published a blog post about it.



Now I'm not going to link the blog post because I don't care much for his side of the story, and at this point it is irrelevant. From what I've read he's been reported because many people didn't feel safe with him around the #Fediverse for not publicly disavowing his friend Chris Hardwick over harassment allegations and being generally shitty towards transgender people.

This often begs the question if #Mastodon should be for everyone. To my understanding it was initially created to alleviate Twitter's shortcomings, like central governance, leniency towards celebrities, and general inaction or outright ostracism towards marginalized groups. @Gargron himself deplored the ban, saying it was "absolutely not the right kind of community atmosphere.", but isn't welcoming everyone going to reproduce the same systemic inequalities as in other public networks?

He also reminded mastodon.social users that "Dogpiling and harassment are off-limits no matter how justified you think you are. The rules are for everyone.", in reply to which people were quick to remind him that the same rules were seemingly enforced differently depending on the profile of the victim. Again, there's a difficult question: should queer people be held to a higher standard in a space that was purposefully designed for them?

I personally don't think so. Mastodon is the only public social network I know where queer pressure can drive a famous white man off it. And it turns out that in spaces where marginalized people hold any power, they can be as shitty as white cis dudes in most other spaces. While this can seem disheartening, it also means that shittiness isn't correlated with any inherent feature of the individual, only their relative position in the power hierarchy of the space they're in. Mob rule still prevails, it just isn't the mob we're used to in this case. To borrow the words of walruslifestyle:
funny how certain kinds of people (...) say "mob rule" without examining whether it was, instead, a large group of people who (a) are usually disempowered; (b) have a legitimate issue they are mobilizing to bring forward; and (c) choose to do so in a way that doesn't conform to privileged notions of civility

To close this, I'd like to point out that most of what happened could have been prevented by Wil Wheaton setting up his own instance, which he most certainly have the means to do, a fact that Matthew Graybosch usefully reminded me. In the end, Wheaton chose to trust mastodon.cloud administration team like he chose to trust the #Twitter's administration team before leaving.

Lets see how quick this will escalate. #Mastodon
 
The inconvenient of the popularity of #Mastodon is that people you were muting on #Twitter get a second chance to be shared in your timeline.
