Check it out:

We made fediverse.info for you, the #fediverse.

This represents more than just Pixelfed, and we recognize how important it is to remain unbiased and not use this to further our own project.

Our long term goal for fediverse.info is to turn it over to a reputable, non-profit organization if possible!

Your feedback is invaluable and has helped shape the project thus far, let us know what you think about this!

I'm working on an introductory #book about #decentralisation protocols. 🦄

It serves as a taster for different technologies, and provides you with a path forward to deepen your studies if you're so inclined.

I'll cover #ActivityPub, #Hyper, #IPFS, and #SSB. Each chapter is a brief intro and a hands-on project using #JavaScript.

The book will be CC licensed. If that sounded interesting, add yourself to the interested readers list at:


Hello and good morning,a critical vulnerability in the Matrix IRC bridge has been patched, deployed, and disclosed (see matrix.org/blog/2022/05/04/0-3 for details) and we will shortly be disconnecting all affected third party Matrix bridges we can find in the interest of protecting their users.

thanks for the cooperation and stay safe out there, folk

👋 Hello new followers!

✨ We are an ethical alternative to Instagram!

▶️ Find an instance to join here fedidb.org/software/pixelfed #pixelfed

Some Fediverse alternatives to "big tech" social media:

Twitter ➡️ @Mastodon

Instagram ➡️ @pixelfed

YouTube ➡️ @peertube

Twitch ➡️ @owncast

Goodreads ➡️ @bookwyrm

Facebook Groups ➡️ @mobilizon

Medium ➡️ @writefreely

You don't need an account on all of these in order to interact with them.

Because they all use the ActivityPub open protocol, you can (for example) use a Mastodon account to follow someone on PixelFed or vice versa. That's why they are collectively known as the Fediverse, because they federate together at a technical level.

Also, this is an incomplete list, there are many other Fedi projects out there such as @funkwhale or @inventaire that are not direct alternatives but are their own thing.

#FediTips #Fediverse #Fedi #ActivityPub

#Gitea is joining the fediverse 🎉 We can now announce we've been accepted into the #NLnet funding round that we applied to. nlnet.nl/project/Gitea/

Thank you to @NGIZero @dachary @forgefriends and so many others for getting us to this point.

We are very much looking forward to many wonderful things that federation within forges can support.

The 4th Monday it's *commons.hour* again!

In our 3rd session we'll have Natalie Brenner and Jaime Villareal from @mayfirst

"The structure and the struggle - Viable coop organisation and contributions to transition in society"
