#hubzilla has the concept of 'magic auth' where you use your credentials on one hub to log in to any other hub. I'd really like to see this feature on the #activitypub side of the #fediverse. I should be able to use my account here on to login to #peertube and #funkwhale instances. And this would even allow users to log in to other #mastodon and #pleroma instances to view local timelines, which is a much requested feature.

We have to stop criticizing and arguing with multinational corporations as if they were people. Corporations are merely a behavior that emerges from the ruleset of capitalism, totally beyond the control of any one of their employees. The only way to deal with those entities is through legislation and by starving them of money.

I do not want to live on this planet anymore:

"[T]he exploit is the first to show that GPUs can flip individual bits stored in dynamic random-access memory. (...) It's also the first Rowhammer attack that uses standard JavaScript to compromise a smartphone, meaning it can be executed when users do nothing more than visit a malicious website. Another key innovation: on average, GLitch takes less than two minutes to compromise a device"

Remember that time when folks were asking about "Federated Instagram"?

Well... does this count?

"Fontina is intended to be an ActivityPub-compliant, federated, photo-sharing-based social network."


It has all been a for the last 10 years. Scripting News: The Internet is going the wrong way well time for groups of us to "stepaway" to the you and your community might just be the ones to lead the way?

This video doesn't mention it, but I was stunned at how many representatives asked Zuckerberg to please provide broadband to their districts. 🤦‍♂️

Why one should prefer #FuckOffFacebook (or #FuckOffGoogle) over #DeleteFacebook (or #DeleteGoogle):

It is completely misleading to make people believe that with one click of a button ("delete") they would get rid of the surveillance and profiling from these companies. They may(?) delete some stored data but they will always cling on the profiles they aggregated on you and keep selling them. Also they'll keep surveilling and profiling everyone on the web that is *not* their clients..

Tech and social. Change. Watch "How Mark Zuckerberg manipulates everyone | Congressional testimony breakdown" on YouTube

AFTER THE WAR THE CAMPAIGN WITH ITS TrUE Aims well under the radar began to be spread far and wide .. it began to affect me personally after i left school and my tradtiional art work I began my teacher training in 1956 . the move to move towards abstraction became very coercive. The favourite out down was who wants to paint healthy women tractor drivers

eg the entire concept of 'feeds' is now deprecated by IndieWeb I guess but why?

<< Feed files are superseded by simply marking up feeds already present on HTML pages, e.g. with h-entry and optionally h-feed. >>

but uh why would I want to put all my social stuff on HTML pages

cos it's not even HTML

If I'm tooting in HTML something went terribly OPEN LEFT ANGLE BRACKET AND LEAVE IT UNCLOSED wrong.

make an HTML *view* of it *maybe* but why make that *mandatory*?

If you're concerned about #opensource and vendor lockin and #privacy and #security and you're using #Medium you're doing it wrong.

The volcanic eruption near our home is continuing, we had a fairly large earthquake, but we are ok.

On the plus side, lava zones prevent real estate speculation. No giant empty towers, no exorbitant apartment prices. Your house may burn down, but it is just a house -- not a capitalistic investment vehicle to prop up a broken, extractive, neofeudal economy. It's a trade off.

As we native Hawaiians say, "You learn to respect and live with Madame Pele (volcano goddess), or you won't last long."

Founded on #4opens and moderated by an ethical code of conduct. Its a safe space for Campaigning and NGO groups to access their members via #openweb projects.

"We can't engage as communities, unless we have money. I can't even express how angry this makes me."
- an activist group using Facebook. People and organisations who feel this way are our initial targets.

We are launching two new Mastodon instances for activists and campaigners to aid communication of grassroot groups; putting social media back in our hands by providing a free, unfettered home for campaigners, NGO’s and activists to communicate among their peers and beyond.

This project is a way out of the restricted, algorithmic, for-profit mediation and commercialisation of communication we increasingly experience. If you do not pay to "boost" each post, a Facebook page will only reach 3-6% of members. This soon becomes an expensive drain on limited NGO and activist budgets.
Activists and campaigners alike are ready to shift their outreach away from the corporate social networks paid-per-view “walled gardens”.

Mastodon is the worlds largest free open source decentralised microblogging network; it’s thousands of unique, interconnected communities, filled with different people, interests, languages, and needs.
You’re free to join any community you like, or better yet, host your own, on your own terms. It remains possible for members of each to instance to interact with others.
There is no monopoly by a single commercial company, no ads, and no tracking.

We aim to help activism/campaigning groups to make this step now.

A note on Security and Privacy - these take a somewhat different shape within the #openweb. Have a read about our thoughts on the matter.

How are OMN projects run?
