Time to share *The Bread Book* again!
"In 1892, an exiled Prince from Russia named Peter #Kropotkin published a book titled The Conquest of Bread. In that text, Kropotkin outlined a vision for a free society that allows everyone to have access to food, shelter, clothing, and luxury.

Here's your daily reminder that if you want end-to-end encryption in a browser, you don't - it doesn't exist and if a vendor sells it to you they have no idea about security or are lying to you. Don't take my word for it - https://www.nccgroup.trust/us/about-us/newsroom-and-events/b…
Ok this is pretty badass - Nextcloud app is calling for testers to integrate it into the Fediverse :D
Instance suspended: humblr.social - explicitly adult instance allowing under 18s, untagged pornography Show more
Just got confirmation from the admin of humblr social that they're 16+. Given they are an explicitly adult content instance allowing untagged porn, I am not ok with it at all. They are now suspended. https://glittery.nipple.solutions/2018/12/humblr-social/
I started Mastodon because I believe in decentralization. The more servers there are, and the more people are spread throughout them, the stronger the network is.
I encourage people to join other servers, or start their own.
However! mastodon.social is the gateway for those who are undecided, or who don't yet know about decentralization. It is also my baby just like the software itself. I do not appreciate hostility towards it when promoting the benefits of other servers. Thanks

I think we have entered a period of an infosec/IT Cold War in which private citizens and corporations are the assets involved.
Every nation's intelligence agencies are looking at our response to Kashoggi think "We can get away with that?"
Techfolk, you are in a war whether you want to be or not. Get your OPSEC in order... because they aren't going to help you.
You will be hung out to dry.
I've got some things to talk about.
MI discourse, meta, tumblr bullshit thats absolutely not coming here Show more
OOF ok what we are NOT going to take from tumblr is the concept that you can do whatever horrible shit to anyone because of your mental illness and because its to do with MI you shouldnt work to improve your behavior so its less damaging to others/if people are hurt its ableism. It is 100% possible to be an abusive asshole to people in part because of symptoms of your MI and that doesnt make it ok. No no no.
An important part of being #solarpunk is slowly letting the life leech out of you during the autumn and winter, and then reviving in the spring

... There are always risks with software developments changing social dynamics. People who are fine with those risks could migrate there, and we could all benefit from seeing how new ideas work in practice (at least, with that population!).
John Scalzi once said that the failure mode of "clever" is "asshole". By the same principle, the failure mode of "innovative social media solution" is "Facebook".
Maybe we can do better by gathering data.

Individual-1's Twitter has been becoming increasingly unhinged for days now, but this is pretty startlingly messed up even for him. People have been openly surprised that it isn't a parody account.
My money is on him sleeping even more poorly than he reportedly does, and that takes a pretty big toll on a dude with only a vague relationship with reality in the first place.
I'm a fan of non-hierarchical organization and a cybersecurity treehugger.
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]
