Hi! People might know me for my contributions to scuttlebutt.nz - I have been working on a implementation of it, intensely for a year now. github.com/cryptoscope/ssb - Always happy to answer questions about it or SSB in general!

@codeberg @choboDOC @ashimokawa honestly to me it's a lot more than this. The risk lies is having a profit motive in the first place. This is what drove design decisions like eschewing the patch-based workflow git was designed for (which is federated and decentralized) for the much weaker pull request model (which is much easier to centralize and make proprietary). This incentive model also explains things like telemetry and user tracking. This is why I expect all sourcehut users to pay for their account - because then I'm accountable to them, not to any investors, and I don't have to extract value from them via some side channel like their data just to keep the lights on.

So this one was worth a cross-platform RT from hellsite:

@HTHR
"thinking about how software companies slowly chip away at the idea of consent by turning every "no" into "not right now," every "stop this" into "do this less often," every "i don't want that" into "maybe later""

⚠️ PSA to all Germans ⚠️

Starting tomorrow, Telekom and Telefonica will hand over your phone's movement data to the government and other authorities.

It is opt-out, not opt-in!

Deactivate ASAP.

Been kind of staying at home more and feeling horrible in every way? Physically, mentally, spiritually?

Fuck prisons.

This is a smol callout!

I’ve been working away on my #opensource #GPL #encrypted #texteditor Txt for the past year, and I’m now posting publicly to ask for help with a contribution. Any #javascript developers have some time to assist with getting this little app to a usable state? (Ping @liaizon @ticky @rra @privacytools)

Repo here 👉 github.com/shibacomputer/txt
Boosts appreciated. 💖

Not sure when I did this the last time.. made it through the whole weekend without entering a single shell command or editing a single line of code. Life is good.

Linux life hack: if your desktop environment doesn't let you double-click executables (binaries, shell scripts, etc), rename the file to use the suffix .AppImage and you're good to go. :)

I'm regrettably no longer able to offer my RSS to ActivityPub converter to the general public. This is because:

- it's wildly popular and my hosting costs keep going up for it
- it's been getting used for more and more purposes I'm uncomfortable with, which I've tried to mitigate but new ones keep popping up

I'll be releasing a new version soon that will let admins allow only people with permissions (either a user/password or a Mastodon account) to create new feeds.
