Omar Rizwan and Brett Victor : systematic bias against interactive programs, and the two computer sciences
From my perspective, the most provocative conversations to be had right now center around three things:
3. Lowering the entry barrier.
I think if we can do these particular aspects well, growth will take care of itself.
I think focusing on growth exclusively is just going to replicate the problems we've seen in other major social media platforms.
And at this point, it's just a good idea to try something else.
I expect go-fed v1 to be much cleaner from an ActivityStreams point of view. Spending a massive amount of time on the code generation tool this second go-around.
Another interesting consideration: If the code-generation bit could be abstracted, then it could possibly generate proper ActivityStreams code for other statically typed languages (ex: C++, Java, ...).
An average car emits 650g of CO₂ per km driven. An average person travels 25km to get to work each day. Commuting by car emits an average of 32.5kg of CO₂ daily. (Based on data from the US.)
An adult tree absorbs up to 21.8kg of CO₂ per year. It would take one tree 1.5 years to absorb what one person can emit in a single day.
In the US alone, over 6 million more cars are registered annually. Each year we destroy 18.7 million acres of forest worldwide, killing roughly 1.1 billion trees.
@cj @lain @kaniini Yeah! We (MoodleNet) are trying to create also a generic ActivityPub library that could be used for any other project. I'm creating some abstractions to deal with AP complexity as much as possible. It is a work in progress but I started having good results. Looking forward to creating some posts to explain it :D But I have a lot of work on MoodleNet too :S
If you want to take a look you can see: https://gitlab.com/OpenCoop/CommonsPub/Server
A proposal for a Global Co-operative IT Network from the International Co-operative Alliance
"The purpose will be to serve the IT needs of the coop movement.
It will be a forum where ICA members can go to get advice on different IT products, services and service providers and where IT professionals from coops or who serve coops can work together, learn from each other and recommend products and services to help members."
I'm confused about #ActivityPub. 😖 😖
The property "first" can be defined as a "Link" and in the example they put the property "summary" that belongs to an "Object". It is not the first "inconsistency" I found.

Alternatively you can view it on invidious ( https://invidio.us ) which doesn't track you, simply replace all the youtube or youtu.be stuff with invidio.us, you can keep the unique video identifier though.
Hope this helped!
pol, treating hate speech as protected Show more
honestly, this fake "free speech" crap needs to stop.
not every issue is solved with a ideology you can fit into a bumper sticker. Yes, disallowing (or refusing to give a voice for) hate speech is going to lead to fascists doing the same thing to marginalized voices. But they do that anyway.
At a certain point you have to face the ugly task of saying "actively harmful ideas do not have the same value as other opinions" and refusing to support them.
copied from a Telegram channel:
The team behind Human Connection... had a meeting last week with @oceatoon (communecter) and Simon Liedtke (wechange.de). We would like to collaborate technologically and exchange content between the platforms to benefit from the network effect. Together we want to get familiar and use ActivityPub and eventually implement it. In the end we celebrate a big ActivityPub party together.
@tbernard here in Mexico, the masses use white-box PCs, or cheap laptops, or second-hand laptops. And cheap Android phones/tablets, of course.
I don't think it's realistic to assume that the masses will be able to acquire vertically-integrated new hardware. Stuff has to work on what they already have.
Community-driven plastic recycling and repurposing
This isn't like, throw it in a bin and ship it to china kind of recycling, but rather taking plastic from your local community and remaking it into something else with community-made machines and processes. Super cool.
social.coop is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
