@librelounge is starting two subseries which will follow @cwebber 's work on Spritely and @emacsen 's work on ReviewPub.

The latter is also meant to be a demonstrational but complete implementation of ActivityPub. @samae #tootgun (unless you have already finished it 😃 )

I didn't expect @librelounge to get that exciting.

I'm at the point where I'm seeing decentralization and community control of production as less of a means to slowly move away from capitalism, and more of a crucial effort to ensure our communities' survival when capitalism inevitably and imminently collapses

Once you pay attention, you start to notice that once the 18-wheelers stop coming, most of us are fucked. Especially now, when most of our possessions are designed to be ephemeral to force us to regularly replenish them

You can't rely on the internet to always give you that information once you need it. You need not only the knowledge, but the experience to keep things running after our lifelines are cut. We need DIY culture and local infrastructure now

w00t! Thank you WildEarth Guardians and Physicians for Social Responsibility!

I want to revive something Teju Cole used to do on birbsite: everyone post photos of whatever's blooming around you, tagged with #florespondence and where you are. Please boost and take part. Making it a reply to me is optional but I'll always enjoy florespondence from all over. Here are the #Seattle daffodils that prompted me to get things started.

A service worker revolt is brewing, as an anti-capitalist union, the IWW, is making history as the first to unionize a fast food restaurant, with 4 stores recognized + two more set to go. Now. workers at another restaurant have launched their own campaign. itsgoingdown.org/portland-fast

... and in #GoodNews, #Wire not only confirms they're working on secure, federated chat, but #federation will be part of the #MLS protocol being standardized at the #IETF :
"During this interim the proposal was made to include federation more strongly in the design considerations and the proposal was adopted as a future goal for MLS. Wire's goal has always been to achieve federation between different compatible backends and this brings us one step closer to that goal!"

I have another #ThinkingUtopia idea.

Buckingham Palace: let's kick out the royals and turn it into a part homeless hostel and soup kitchen, but also for small enterprises. Like, a kitchen garden & small forest garden plus chickens, supplying the soup kitchen.

Maybe a repair cafe & bike shop, which also teaches maintenance skills. Plus small scale solar & wind power projects suitable for urban areas. Homeless people can take part, learn how, or not, as they prefer.

Could also have beekeeping, run cooking, practical skill (i.e. sewing) & gardening classes, and rent some rooms out to community groups.

In Osona Sud, Catalonia the distribution of Guifinet nodes is superdense. It's like the William Gibson saying that the future is here but not evenly distributed. Some areas of the world are already living in the future of decentralized user-owned network infrastructure.

If anyone says that mesh networks are impractical or don't scale to a municipal level then Catalonia is a good showcase of it working. Obviously not all of these thousands of nodes are highly tech-savvy anarcho-hackers, so this is something which can work "for the people".

Thanks to reader @attac_hl for pointing out the customisable route planning site OpenRouteService:

maps.openrouteservice.org

It uses OpenStreetMap data, but offers more options for routing and vehicles.

I've been involved in many attempts to organize coordinated protests across the country, both successful and not so successful, so I know how much effort goes into a day of action like #Strike4Climate. I'm in awe of the amazing mahi done by all the rangatahi across the country, and around the world. To all the rainbow warriors out there, kia kaha, kia toa, kia manawanui.

but in all seriousness, pleroma 1.0 will be out soon. maybe a month or two.

there’s a few things left to stabilize, but overall, we feel that since 1.x is going to be an LTS-type release cycle, that we need to make sure it is as solid as possible. it won’t have all features we wanted to include, but it will be a pretty solid release cycle.

When #GretaThunberg started going to the Swedish Parliament to protest the government's inaction over #ClimateChange, she probably worried that nobody would support her. Leading is lonely. It always requires you to step out on your own, and risk being ignored, or laughed at. It's always a gamble. Greta's gamble appears to have paid off. Here's hoping we can be all be as courageous, determined, and effective, as she is.

Introducing Indie Web Server (video)

ar.al/2019/03/14/introducing-i

I just recorded a short video demonstrating just how simple and seamless Indie Web Server really is.

Running a secure development web server is one command. Running a secure production web server is… umm… still one command.

Enjoy! 🤓
