pg 2/2 #decentralizedfediverse
From author's conclusion:
"If you are a member of the Fediverse – watch out for your data. If you are an admin running an instance in the Fediverse – watch out for your and other people's data. If you care about availability, privacy and the future of decentralised infrastructure, think about who owns your server hardware."
pg 1/2 How #decentralized is the #fediverse ? In 2020, "cookie" wrote https://bitkeks.eu/blog/2020/03/underlying-problem-fediverse-decentralised-platforms.html which has a "focus on the distribution of Mastodon instances over hosting providers throughout the Fediverse." Here's a quote from the article: "In total, these six providers host more than 50% of Fediverse instances." Who are the six? OVH, Sakura, Amazon, Hetzner, CloudFlare and DigitalOcean. #decentralizedfediverse
Does anyone have recommendations for green energy Virtual Private Server which is certified to be green? Renewable, clean, reduced greenhouse gases (e.g. carbon, methane). Solar, wind, geothermal.

Bernie gets it — “It’s absolutely imperative if democracy is to survive that we do everything that we can to say, ‘Yes, we hear your pain and we are going to respond to your needs.’ That’s really what this is about. If we don’t do that, I fear very much that conspiracy theories and big lies and the drift toward authoritarianism is going to continue.”
#TootTagClouds -- possible visual representation of related Toots. Could unfold it to a visual tree of threaded conversation, indented each time a toot is a reply to another.
#ManipulateRelatedToots according to topic, hashtags, tooters, instances.
A federated #echochamber is still an echochamber.
Wish I had software which gathers related toots into #visual-toot-tag-clouds.
I would use pinch gestures on toot tag clouds to zoom into the ones which interested me. I would swipe away the clouds which are meaningless noise, though I would want to be able to get them back.
I'd have searching/filtering/sorting functionality too.
Our friends from P2P Models have just published this paper "Coding or community? The uneven value of activities in peer production", revolving around the following questions: Do all activities in Commons-Based Peer Production communities have the same worth? What types of activities are perceived and valued as contributions? by David Rozas, Nigel Gilbert, Paul Hodkinson and Samer Hassan about Drupal.

Geothermal in-ground generators at homes and buildings. Hydrothermal generators at locations where the temperature gradients are worth installing a unit. There are so many sources of free, clean, and nearly infinite energy. Nature gifts them to all of Earth's species. We need to think and act outside the usual boxes, as soon as possible. (Edited for clarity) 2/2
We need more #energycoops. More homes and buildings with #solar panels. Smaller modified #wind turbines for use at windy homes & schools. Scalable #watermills for those near streams and creeks. Gutters with tiny spinners in them, "micro-watermills." #Photosynthetic non-toxic paint. Then, we need to use a multi-directional #distribution system to move the energy where it needs to go, storing excess in coop "battery" stations. We need #communities to #elect leaders who will make it happen. more...
