Which server should an new #Fediverse user choose?


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?

Damit alle, die #neuhier sind auch mal etwas in ihrem Stream zu sehen bekommen, ist hier mal eine Übersicht über "offizielle" Präsenzen von Institutionen, Bloggern usw. im #fediverse. Das soll jetzt mal keine Liste mit gespiegelten Newsfeeds sein, sondern wirklich aktive Konten.

Die Liste ist hoffentlich nicht vollständig und kann gerne in den Kommentaren erweitert werden. Alle, die hier in der Liste auftauchen, sind auch mehr oder weniger aktiv. Ich werde diese Liste auch regelmäßig aktualisieren.

Es wäre natürlich toll, wenn möglichst viele diesen Konten folgen, damit die verantwortlichen Redakteure usw. sehen, das es Sinn macht, auch hier ein Konto zu haben und nicht nur eine Handvoll Nerds damit bespielt werden.

Zum Folgen dieser Accounts einfach dem Link folgen und auf Verbinden klicken, oder den Link kopiert, bei euch unter Kontakte geht, im Feld Neue Kontakte hinzufügen den Link einfügt und auf Verbinden klickt.

Nachrichten, (Netz)Politik usw.






Kultur und Unterhaltung






Kommerzielles usw.






Die hier sind leider ziemlich inaktiv:




Politisches, Stiftungen, Parteien






Bei denen hier passiert leider nicht mehr so viel:




Federation






AStAs






Diverses






Critical Mass






Hier passiert leider nicht mehr so viel:




Spanisches und Französisches






Mastodon Accounts


Den Accounts auf Mastodon können die Nutzer auf Diaspora leider nicht folgen, das geht nur von Friendica aus.




Hier passiert leider nicht mehr so viel:

Inoffizielle Accounts


Bei den "inoffiziellen" Accounts handelt es sich meist um gespiegelte Feeds, d.h. interaktion findet da nicht statt, aber sie sind ganz interessant, damit der eigene Stream anfangs nicht so leer ist. Zu finden sind diese infoffiziellen Accounts im Friendica Directory:




Foren


Bei Friendica gibt es auch Foren, vergleichbar mit den Gruppen bei #Facebook. Den Foren können auch Diaspora-Nutzer beitreten und folgen.

Finally got the detailed write up of the first real world use of the Diaspora API (in beta): a Jekyll site Discussion Timeline feature written in Kotlin and Vue.js. Check it out :) #diaspora #diaspora-dev #jekyll #fediverse #ruby #kotlin #vuejs


 

This is great information for new users!


This is a particularity helpful read for G+ refugees or those fleeing the tyranny of Facebook - who may not have even been aware such networks existed! It's also just a well laid out, and easy to understand, description of the #fediverse .

A big thank you to @alysonsee (Fca), for writing the article that I have been meaning to write, and doing a better job at it than I likely would have (bonus points for the Venn diagram)! Thank you for creating and sharing this!

Also, thanks for sharing @Vladimir and updating me on the original author's identity. I'm definitely saving this to share with new users of my #friendica node when they ask such questions!

Decentralised & Free Social Networks

For those who are #newhere from other social networks, here’s a bit of handy vocabulary to #help you navigate this new social network universe:

- Protocol - An agreed format that enables software applications to communicate with (or “federate” with) each other. The two most heavily used protocols around here are Diaspora and ActivityPub. As an end user, you don’t have to care about the protocol you are using and you don’t ever see the “protocol” other than it enables or limits which users you can see.
Nevertheless, be aware that currently not all the platforms (see this word later) are fully compatible and limit you in the possibility of interactions.
Image/photo

- Platform - The software application that implements a protocol(s) for federating. The Diaspora platform implements the eponymously named Diaspora protocol. Mastodon, for example, implements the ActivityPub protocol. #Friendica implements both the Diaspora and the ActivityPub protocols.

- Server - pod - instance - node - The server(s) running a particular platform (software application). The variability in naming is due to the various origins of these platforms now working to intercommunicate.
For example, pluspora.com is one of the many pods running the Diaspora platform; mastodon.social is one of the many pods running the Mastodon platform; and libranet.de is one of the many pods running the Friendica platform.

- The Federation - The collective of servers running platforms that implement the Diaspora protocol. This includes all servers running Diaspora (the software application), Hubzilla, Friendica, or Socialhome. The users on *any* of these pods can connect to and interact with each other.

- The Fediverse - The collective of servers running platforms that implement the ActivityPub (and OStatus) protocols. This includes all servers running Mastodon, Pixelfed, Hubzilla, Friendica, Socialhome, or many, many others. The users on *any* of these servers can connect to and interact with each other.

- The Free Network - The collective of pods in The Federation and The Fediverse, combined.

Hope that helps and doesn’t make this seem more complicated than it actually is. The main difference from other social networks is that no single entity owns and runs a platform. On G+ or Facebook, you are locked into that platform/company to talk to other users. In the Free Network, one set of volunteers writes the software and puts it out there for free, and another set of volunteers downloads the software and runs it on their servers and invites us to have user accounts for free. (But you should definitely donate to help them with the costs, if you can.) If we, as users, decide we aren’t happy with our current experience, we can change platforms or pods and still keep all of our friends/connections. On Facebook, G+, Twitter, and the like, you are locked in; and if you want leave, you go cold turkey.

Glad you joined us here in the land of choice.

Decentralized Social Networks and Censorship

We’ve all heard of the big social platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and many others. These websites dominate the social interaction online. However, it is becoming clearer every day that these are insufficient for free and uninhibited conversation over the World Wide Web.
First of all, one thing that Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, MySpace, MeWe, Gab.ai, and much more share are that they are centralized. There is one authority who decides what is and is not allowable, and one power to control what happens with your data. This one power has the ability to silence certain groups and ideas, and let others flourish. It has the power to take you and your friend’s personal information and use it for personal gain. It has the power to control every single person using the service. You are no longer a user of the platform, you are used by the platform.

#Fediverse tale: a #Friendica contact of mine announced he moved to #Mastodon, a different social media platform. I can still follow him, so the move has been seamless for me.

That’s it. That’s great. Join the Fediverse.


 

Which websites featured on the Federation have the worst privacy?


My last post highlighted how ticking the OEmbed box to add a website picture to a post can compromise Federation users if it contains a tracker.

[:]




[:]

I also mentioned tools, like Disconnect, we could use to detect websites which track their users. In this post I reveal some of the most popular reference websites on the Federation with low privacy and high tracking rates.

I believe Federation users should consider not embedding, or at least warning their readers about the surveillance techniques carried out by these sites.

A Princeton University study identified almost a million websites that track their users. Here are just 5 examples of websites whose stories are commonly quoted on the Federation:

WIRED


Wired is a popular website referenced on the Federation by many users because it publishes great tech-based stories. But how private is it?
Although it offers an ‘ad-free’ version for subscribers, normal visitors are ruthlessly fleeced for their data.

WIRED has embed deals (agreements to embed tracking codes into their pages for money or gain) with a staggering 171 third parties including Google, Amazon, Facebook, Vogue, GQ, Golf Digest, Bonappetit and Vanity Fair.




Some tracking beacons embedded on WIRED and captured by Ublock Origin

[:]

151 of these third parties are known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Amazon, Facebook, Turn, Add This, Scorecard Research, Adobe, Twitter Analytics, Typekit, Criteo and Quantserve. Aggressive trackers like Google Tag Manager (GTM), Add This and Turn are present here.

Below is a screengrab of the many scripts NoScript has blocked from the WIRED website, the 33 scripts, gifs and beacons blocked by Ublock Origin and a couple by Disconnect.




[:]

WIRED sets 25 short-term and 28 long-term cookies itself, while allowing its third party partners (including 69 tracking companies) to set 26 short-term and 133 long-term cookies.

It uses Google Analytics without the anonymization feature enabled, so user details are sent to Google servers.

All WIRED servers are based in the US so GDPR privacy rules can be ignored.

Websites loading this many scripts/cookies are usually blacklisted by most users, not least because they drain a device’s battery.

WIRED claims that subscribing with them will mean an ad free experience, but I find it hard to believe that a subscription to WIRED will suddenly load a clean page without a single tracker retrieving data. But then I am not a WIRED subscriber. Please comment if you are and have no trackers.

[:]

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

FOSSPOST


Seen by some as a safe pro-privacy resource celebrating Free and Open Source Software, FOSSPOST lets its users down by digitally fingerprinting their devices and loading 19 trackers into a browser.

[:]




[:]
FOSSPOST has embed deals with 27 third parties, making its embed renting in the ‘low’ category, including Google, Amazon, Creative Commons and WordPress.

13 of these are known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Amazon, Mailerlite, One Signal and the data-hungry caterpillar that is WordPress.

FOSSPOST sets 2 short-term and 2 long-term cookies itself while allowing its third party partners (including 3 tracking companies) to set 4 long-term cookies.

It uses Google Analytics without the anonymization feature so user details are sent to Google servers. All FOSSPOST servers are based in the US so GDPR privacy rules can be ignored.

[:]
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

TECHCRUNCH


Acquired by Yahoo’s parent company, Oath (a company that includes AOL), under the Verizon umbrella, in 2010, this is a popular reference source for researchers and Federation users.

Historically, Yahoo deserves some kudos as they were one of the few big tech companies that objected to sharing their users’ details with the PRISM
spy program.

The Bush administration threatened them with $250k a day fines until they complied. Verizon bought them in 2017. Yahoo suffered the largest data breach in history in 2018.

The link to this NYT story is not embedded (consider blocking the GTM tracker on the site)

https://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/12/technology/documents-unsealed-in-yahoos-case-against-us-data-requests.html

TECHCRUNCH.com fingerprints the user’s device and dumps 2-7 Yahoo trackers in their browser, depending on the page loaded.

[:]




[:]

TECHCRUNCH has embed deals with 27 third parties, including Google, Facebook, Yahoo and WordPress.
15 of these are known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Facebook, Yahoo, WordPress, Atwola, Typekit, AOL and Scorecard Research.

TECHCRUNCH sets 4 short-term and 5 long-term cookies itself while allowing its third party partners (including 4 tracking companies) to set 1 short-term and 7 long-term cookies.

It uses Google Analytics but interestingly enables the anonymization feature so some user details are not sent to Google servers.

All servers are based in the US so forget about GDPR privacy rules.

[:]

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

THE REGISTER .co.uk


Although a great resource with well-written and groundbreaking stories, it isn’t as private as I’d hoped.

There is no obvious digital fingerprinting but it seems to have gathered more Google syndication in the last couple of years, (9 of its 16 embed deals are with the Big G). 12 known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Admedo and the Amp Project gather data.

THE REGISTER sets 3 short-term and 4 long-term cookies itself while allowing its third party partners (including 2 tracking companies) to set 7 long-term cookies.

It uses Google Analytics without enabling the anonymization feature so user details are sent to Google servers. Although THE REGISTER’s domain is in the UK, both its data and email servers are based in the US so GDPR privacy rules could be compromised here, though I am not a lawyer.

[:]
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The Guardian .com


I’ve been sitting on this for a few years now but it’s about time I blew the whistle.

I first noticed the Guardian newspaper’s website was digitally fingerprinting its users’ devices when they published an article on, um, Canvas Fingerprinting.

That page has been removed since, but they still continued doing it, long before Facebook, though not before Google.

[:]




[:]

I’ve kept quiet about this surveillance because I admire the paper for its incredible journalism, especially exclusives like the Snowdon revelations, and its general championing of freedom issues across many sectors of society. But the hypocrisy has started to wear me down.

[:]



Some tracking items & widgets embedded on Guardian .com and captured by Ublock Origin

The Guardian has embed deals with a privacy-sapping 142 third parties, including Google, Amazon, Bing, Twitter, and, despite being one of its main critics, Facebook. 132 of these third party partners are known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Amazon, Facebook, Turn, AddThis, Scorecard Research, Blue Kai, Twitter Analytics, Rubicon, Criteo and Quantserve.

Some of the most aggressive trackers like GTM, AddThis and Turn are present here.

The Guardian also sets 3 short-term and 5 long-term cookies itself, while allowing its third party partners (including 51 tracking companies) to set 10 short-term and 131 long-term cookies.

Yes, we NEED the Guardian’s continued existence, but castigating Facebook et al while allowing them to track its users doesn’t sit well with me.

The website uses Google Analytics but at least enables the anonymization feature, so some user details are not sent to Google servers.

Although The Guardian’s data servers are in Germany, their email servers are based in the US so GDPR privacy rules could be compromised here, though, again, I am not a lawyer.

In conclusion, I’ve given just 5 examples of popular sites Federation users quote in their posts.

I am NOT advocating a boycott of these sites but politely suggest we don’t OEmbed them, just feature a hyperlink and give readers the heads-up about these privacy concerns.

Alternatively, look for other sources featuring the same story. It’s also worth highlighting which websites do NOT add a tracker when we OEmbed a story, or have a low level of surveillance. Please promote those guys.

Acá tienen a uno que pretende hacer con los pods independientes lo mismo que hace EE.UU. con los países soberanos


Image/photo
https://diaspora.com.ar/posts/2756123

Un tal canek (canek@share.naturalnews.com ) del pod share.naturalnews.com, se las da, al igual que EE.UU, de defensor de la "Libertad de expresión" y para eso no se le ocurre mejor idea que hacer una lista negra de lo que llama "Cuck pods" llamando a no registrarse en ellos. Para eso usa un falso criterio de "libertad de expresión" que básicamente consiste en decir y hacer cualquier cosa mientras los podmins mantienen una postura pasiva y permisiva, limitándose solo a la administración técnica del pod que corren.

Nuestro pod fue incluído en su lista negra con la siguiente leyenda que pasaré a responder a continuación. Otros pods incluídos en la lista son pod.disroot.org, diasp.org, nerdpol.ch, pod.geraspora.de. Muchos de los usuarios bloqueados en esos pods son trolls o fascistas cuyas cuentas fueron borradas.
http://diaspora.com.ar

Another cuck pod. This one acts as a national pod calling itself “Diaspora Argentina” yet deletes the accounts of nationalists and right-wingers without warning and has even been known to make public their personal information. (https://diaspora.com.ar/posts/846253) (https://diasp.org/posts/9153227)

El crimen que cometimos según ellos, ofendiendo su criterio de "libertad", es el de haber "borrado cuentas de nacionalistas derechistas (fascistas) sin aviso y haber hecho pública su información personal". Sin embargo, si bien borramos varias cuentas de fascistas, solo en un caso hicimos público su mail, por el carácter violento y pro-genocida de un usuario que era defensor de la dictadura militar argentina, que actuaba como troll y atacaba las publicaciones de personas y organizaciones que defendìan los Derechos Humanos. De hecho sí fue advertido pero continuó con su hostigamiento, no dándonos más remedio que actuar en su contra.
Estos cabeza hueca-liberales condenan con listas negras a quienes actuamos contra fascistas pero nada dicen de estos fascistas cuando atacan a nuestros usuarios y reivindican el asesinato y desaparición de personas.

Su idea de "libertad" parece no aplicarse cuando se trata de proteger a nuestros usuarios y nuestro pod. Es la idea más tonta de libertad :"Sos libre de publicar lo que quieras". No importa ahí la responsabilidad, ni si atacás a alguien, ni importa tampoco la "libertad" de los administradores de permitir o no conductas destructivas dentro del pod. Somos admins y por eso somos unos forros que no tenemos que existir, que no tenemos que "meter mano". Parece como si tuviéramos que ser castigados por tener servidores, por que no sea todo p2p en Internet. No tiene que importar nuestro criterio porque no deberíamos ni existir. Tenemos que dejar que todo fluya frente a nuestros ojos y que cualquiera haga lo que quiera mientras nosotros ponemos la infraestructura, el trabajo, pagamos la luz y mantenemos el server. Y mientras muchos usuarios descansan cómodamente sobre nuestro trabajo para después criticarnos, cuando podrían ellos mismos abrirse su propio pod.

Es que, como dice este tal Canek, "Nosotros nos llamamos a nosotros mismos Diaspora* Argentina". Claro. No es porque seamos el único pod del país, ni el primero. Es porque le robamos a los 40 millones de habitantes la posibilidad de abrirse su propio pod. Hasta el nombre nos critican...
Estoy seguro que a los pods que están llenos de pornografía y pedofilia no los critican ¡No vi ninguno en esa lista! y miren que está lleno de pods así en Diaspora. Esos no son "Cuck pods"...

Entonces, según la idea de estos personajes, si actuamos contra un defensor del genocidio, dejamos de ser un pod libre. ¡Qué idea lineal y estúpida de entender la libertad!
Sin embargo, como en todo grupo social, tenemos nuestras condiciones y "acuerdos de convivencia", no compatibles con lo que hizo aquel sujeto en nuestro pod. Aquella forma de operar por parte de un usuario (reivindicación del genocidio, ataque a usuarios, etc), como lo especifican nuestros tèrminos de uso, es contrario al acuerdo que él suscribió y por ende, lo hace perder los derechos que de él se desprenden, así como habilita a los podmins a tomar acciones en su contra.
Esto está contemplado en los puntos 4 y 7 de nuestros términos de uso:

"4) (...) En Diaspora* Argentina consideramos al respeto y la camaradería como valores fundamentales a la hora de llevar adelante un debate. Por lo cual no estarán permitidos los usuarios troll, ni las publicaciones o comentarios que apunten a molestar, ofender o difamar a otros usuarios sin ningún tipo de motivo o argumento valedero. Diaspora* Argentina podría no tolerar la publicación de cualquier contenido que viole estos términos y definiciones, por lo cual los podmins tendrán el derecho de eliminar el contenido en cuestión, llamar la atención y/o tomar medidas contra el usuario que lo haya publicado."

"7) Incumplimiento de los Términos. El usuario que violara o incumpliera los Términos de uso, perderá las garantías y derechos que se desprenden de los mismos. Diaspora* Argentina entiende que ese usuario rompe su compromiso de uso del pod, establecido en estos Términos, habilitando a los administradores a tomar medidas de suspensión o eliminación sobre la cuenta del usuario. "

Las personas que reivindican el genocidio, la pedoficia, la trata de personas, la violencia de género, las violaciones, el racismo, etc, son para nosotros criminales que deben ser escrachados y llevados a la justicia. Nosotros no tenemos por qué permitir que ellos utilicen nuestra plataforma para descargar su odio y mucho menos los protegeremos mientras hacen eso. Por el contrario, los escracharemos como lo hicimos. Mal que les pese a estos "Freedom kiddies", las acciones llevadas a cabo por nosotros fueron mínimas en comparación a lo que este tipo de gente se merece.

Pero se malentiende el concepto de libertad. Para estos muchachitos pequebú occidentales y tecnicistas, tomar acciones contra un fascista es ir en contra de la libertad. Menudo concepto de libertad el de tolerar la intolerancia y la violencia política. Algo tán estúpido como decir: "Somos libres, entonces acá todos hacen lo que quieren, entonces admitimos a los que pretenden coartarle la libertad a la sociedad. Cómo se lo vamos a prohibir, si les prohibimos entonces no somos libres". Entonces, bajo este razonamiento, un pod libre es aquel que admite el fascismo, la divulgación de pedofilia, la violencia hacia las mujeres, etc.
Este concepto "liberal" de libertad me recuerda a Richard Stallman diciendo que él no tendría problemas en que un gobierno utilice Software Libre para tirar misiles. Y me recuerda a los partidos fascistas presentándose a elecciones y siendo admitidos como una opción más de la democracia.

A ver, niños amantes de "lo libre". La libertad en la sociedad es un poco más ámplia y compleja que "Free beer" o "Share with friends". Libertad implica responsabilidades a nivel social.

Un derechista nacionalista (un fascista) como el que uds nos señalan no debe ser admitido en un pod si su admin pretende defender la libertad de sus usuarios o la democracia del pod. Libertad no incluye la "libertad de atacar a otros".

Culpa de su "permisividad" Diaspora está llena de pedófilos y fachos. Culpa de esa idea de libertad abstracta y no comprometida con nada, el Software Libre es aprovechado por corporaciones para espiar a los usuarios y cometer atrocidades. Maduren un poco, y no se suban al caballito de "Nosotros defendemos lo libre" si realmente no entienden nada.

Ustedes me recuerdan al gobierno de los Estados Unidos. Si son yanquis puedo comprender ese comportamiento. Tal vez imiten a "sus jefes". Estados Unidos se las da de ser el "Gendarme del mundo" y el "Defensor de los Derechos Humanos y la libertad". Pero ocuren las peores cosas en los países que están bajo su dominio y tildan de "dictadores" a aquellos gobernantes que no siguen su lìnea, que plantean políticas independientes. Ellos invaden y toman injerencia sobre las políticas de los países que tildan de "dictadores y/o terroristas". Todo por intereses propios. Para adueñarse de sus recursos y su territorio. Los atacan, les meten sanciones, los ponen en listas negras como hacen ustedes y luego se meten en su política interna, les dicen lo que tienen que hacer (como implícitamente hacen ustedes también). Si no aceptan tienen que prepararse para la guerra. Menos mal que nosotros somos pods y no países.

Canek, ¿quién te dió el tìtulo de juez e interventor de todos los pods de Diaspora* del mundo?. ¿Qué autoridad moral pensás que tenés para hacerlo? Quién sos vos para decirme a mi cómo debo actuar en la administración de mi pod? ¿Acaso colaboraste en algo?

Alguien en tus comentarios dijo que debíamos hacer un pod de comunistas y meternos todos ahí. Como un gheto. Linda idea tienen ustedes de federación y de intercambio. Se las dan de libres y son de los más censuradores que existen. Te propongo lo contrario. Ya que amás tanto la "libertad de expresión" de los derechosos y fascistas, montate tu propio pod, llenalo de fascistas y pedófilos, y dejame de joder...
Te aseguro que los usuarios de Diaspora a nivel general vamos a estar más felices si los fascistas dejan de molestarnos.

Tu listita negra no tiene ningún efecto en Diaspora, Schindler.

I want to thank the #fediverse for being the one place where my feed isn't full of Kardashian drama.



 
!Friendica Admins

I created the bot that allows to suggest instances. You can test it by mentioning it at @fedvice

- You need to add a URL to the instance and keywords.

- It replies with the same privacy of your original message.

- You can remove your data simply by mentioning it with the word "delete" or "remove".

- It will guess the social network behind the host name.

- The next step will be to suggest instances thanks to keywords when it will have more data.

#Prismo has gotten a couple new contributors in the past couple weeks. Great to see more activity in the project.

If you're interested in a link sharing site (think reddit, HN, lobsters) on the #fediverse, head over to the repo and join in.

Calling all #Fediverse admins of instances in the #EU. The #CopyrightDirective is coming, we need to show the MEPs how massively the EU Internets will be affected.

We are preparing a list of all EU-based #Pleroma, #Mastodon, #GNUSocial, #Peertube, #Funkwhale, and any other instances.

Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.

Please help. This is important.

Appel à tous les admins du #Fediverse qui gèrent des instance dans l'#UE. La #CopyrightDirective se rapproche et nous devons montrer aux parlementaires ses effets sur l'Internet.

Nous préparons une liste de toutes les instances européennes #Pleroma, #Mastodon, #GNUSocial, #Peertube, #Funkwhale, etc.

Contactez-moi. Je n'ai besoin que du nom de domaine, du pays et de l'objectif général de l'instance. Un nombre approximatif d'utilisateur est le bienvenu, mais pas indispensable.

C'est important.

Beh anche fosse la prima istanza italiana, non è mica un vino o un formaggio che più stagiona più è buono! :-)

Io sono veramente contento di vedere più Italiani sul #fediverse! In questi tempi oscuri, in questo infinito strascico di guerra fredda che lega Andreotti, Berlusconi, Di Maio e Salvini... mi da un po' di speranza sul nostro martoriato paese.


 

Friendica Dev Environment


Alright! After many hours getting up to speed on #PHP #phpstorm and #LAMP in general finally got a dev environment running with #friendica ...I think I'll celebrate with a little Stardew Valley before moving on :) #fediverse


 
@protonmail Welcome to #fediverse 😉 Looking forward to news regarding #protonmail and #protonvpn here. Greetings from Vilnius! 🇱🇹


 

My First Friendica Contribution


!Friendica Developers

I've been enjoying my #fediverse experiment with #friendica so much I want to contribute a little. I was thinking of trying to pick up this issue (I posted in the issue that very thing as well). It's listed as a Junior job and it doesn't look like anyone has done anything with it yet. I figured I'd post in here in case I'm missing something about complexity, work already started, etc. https://github.com/friendica/friendica/issues/6517


 
In the past 24 hours 2 very famous human rights groups joined the #fediverse and started following me (rare, and I think I was their first to follow). Are they finally realising that for-profit, Saudi-funded #twitter cannot be relied on for expression?


 

FOSDEM 2019 Was Awesome


Just landed back in the states from my first #FOSDEM #fosdem2019 I'll be doing a long blog post on it later but it was great meeting people from across global the #fediverse and #opensource community.

Let’s keep improving Diaspora and help in any way we can.

If you can donate just a small sum it all helps as the place is held together by unpaid volunteers.
Donate Information here

If you have programming skills or feel that you can help in any way Take a look at this

As with all of my animations you can download and use it as you wish

#diaspora #fediverse #donate #help #3d #gif #cogs


 
This sort of asshattery is why I focus on the #fediverse so that we can stop giving these billionaire assholes more and more money and control over our lives.


 
Getting ready to enjoy the first session of my first FOSDEM :) #fosdem #fediverse


 
I know the #fediverse has made it because I just saw a screenshot from #Tusky as a post in a meme sub on Reddit.


 
All of this #fediverse activity has me excited with playing around with all the different platforms...probably need to start using different icons or adding platform icons to them...


 
Refuse to provide clicks but #Mastodon and the rest of the #fediverse seem to be the exact opposite of crumbling to me.

My #fediverse ( #diaspora #mastodon #pixelfed ) running on the BeOS inspired alt-OS Haiku :) (and federating over #activitypub between PixelFed and Mastodon to boot)...I could have been coding but I'd rather dork around today with altos etc #computer #geek #haikuos #beos


 
Finally created my first #pixelfed post. More and more improvement to the #fediverse ever day. Big thanks to @dansup https://pixelfed.social/p/hankg/32493
