Pembroke allowed to flower cheap no need for planting - http://www.loveitorloseit.info/2018/05/pembroke-allowed-to-flower-cheap-no.html
I think it's really interesting to follow Dave Winer (inventor of RSS) on Twitter - he's very concerned about the current push towards HTTPS.
He's afraid raising the secrity bar will make the web less open and less accessible. And he's right; adding technical requirements favours the entrenched big players with big budgets.
Dave also fears for the historic web, in the (unlikely?) event that browser vendors actually deprecate HTTP.
I don't agree with everything he says, but the POV has value.
https://www.businessinsider.de/people-increased-facebook-usage-after-cambridge-analytica-scandal-2018-5?r=UK&IR=T Sadly true https://campaign.openworlds.info sighnups peeked then declined. Use is steady but not growing. The level of apathy and negativerty is a trubbaling look at "suicide culture" we live in. #failbook and the #dotcons in general are not healthy for a humanistic eological society. We do need more than a tiny minoraty of #fashernistas to step away. Diversaty is healthy.
Testing seedboxing with #peertube http://hamishcampbell.com/index.php/2018/05/18/testing-peertube-webrtc-seedboxes/ kind duse not work yet...
Have you thought of the "power polatics" impact of the spread of "codes of conducts" its good to empower people... Its dangerous to give people. "hard rules" to hit each other. The is a long disgusting history of the second happening? So are the better ways to empower people?
Beginning June 11, no more free API key for Google Maps (now Google Maps Platform) if you don't provide a credit card.
A lot of custom Google maps that have been created over the years will likely no longer work.
Trying to mix open and closed is not a simple thing.
The #geekproblem of complexity/obscurantism building tools for themselves not wider social groups.
The mainstream media lazy/careerist "journalism" on tech (and everything).
#fashernistas feeding lifestyle feeding media feeding society circle.
It's all a bit "suicidal"
Nice to see the #activitypub networks as a stepping away from this mess.
How to hold out a hand to help others take a step back to the #openweb
A. Did Indymedia go on the Dark Net? I didn't realise there were people advocating for this ...
Q. Self sighed cirtificates/not logging IP on indymedia servers. Both were security thorter imposed by #geekproblem with out consensus or open process.
#blocking of federated decentralison vier RSS aggregation. They went as far as implementing there own version of RSS which talked to nobody else at the UK site.
The #encryptionist stupiditerty is still mainstream at every event you go to. The #geekproblem still defines and shapes almost all #opentec projects. The #fashernisters still recycling and "monetarise" this crap to build their careers/self worth. We are only thinking about "stepping away" from the #dotcons
We are in a mess, good to say this as we won't move till we hear this as a mainstream story.
Just donated 20€ to #GnuPG for keeping it real. They have only received 41€ in May so far, which is ridiculously low given the importance of that project. Please help out if you can:
(Really angry to see this shit blowing up on mainstream media now, this will be a frustrating week...)
