I am thinking about 3 months vagabond around Europe, with 3yo little Tosia, by trains.

1. Is there anyone who’d like to join on any part of the trip.

2. Anyone who’d like to host us for a few days?


Esteemed #Fediverse

want to share some lines from the Announcement for the generic #ActivityPub server by #OpenEngiadiana

The work towards this release has been done by 'rustra' who is currently being detained as a political prisoner in Belarus. His detainment is not only a loss to his family and friends but to the entire ActivityPub and Free Software community. Resist political repression and support the victims!
Please consider donating to the Anarchist Black Cross Belarus

rustra can currently only receive letters in Russian. If you write Russian and would like to send him a letter that would be great. Please contact me for his address.

#Resist and stay safe!

Happy Easter to everyone!

Has anyone tried learning another language on Mastodon? Is there a bot, for example, that sends regular language lessons? #language #learn #learnlanguage

Just like email, the Fediverse is decentralised, so it is extremely difficult for anyone to ever buy it.

But there are also other reasons why decentralising makes sense for the Fediverse. Maybe the next most important reason is the ability to choose our own rules.

Each site (or "instance") on the Fediverse can decide its own rules for acceptable behaviour. This makes dispute resolution much more civilised, as people who disagree with an instance's rules can move to a different instance (or even start their own).

It also makes a lot more sense than having a massive megacorporation trying to make yes/no decisions on the entire world's disagreements.

Instances can also choose to block other instances. The worse an instance behaves, the more other instances will block it, until eventually the worst-behaved instances are just talking to themselves.

The Masto developers summed this all up well in their official video:

Hello world! 👋

This is the first toot by Grow Your Own Services, a small website that encourages ordinary people to make their own internet.

It's a totally new site so feedback is welcome! (It would be nice to expand the lists of suggested hosting companies, for example.)

#Introduction #Introductions #NewHere

Over 1m people running away from war crossed Polish border in last two weeks. Most people who I know in Warsaw already host a refugees family at the moment.

People fill online forms and volunteers match hosting offers with requests by FB and phone.

A hospex platform like Trustroots could potentially help many people in need, and even though I (mariha) am not a good person to do this, I feel like we should try and I set up an instance of TR for this.

If you'd like to help please join us/me.

Me and some other people from Free Software Community are planning to release a privacy-respecting free software chatting app, named Prav (means pigeon in Malayalam language) for Indian users, which would be interoperable with XMPP.

We want more people to get involved because we want to have democratic decision making process.

Please visit the website prav.app. Also, please share with your contacts.

The flip side of "what should've been an email is a meeting" is "what should've been a party is an email or chat thread". 🤐

really burnt out programming alone

anyone have a small project actively seeking contributions/collaboration?

was surprised Mamman Sani didn't have a wikipedia article so I started one. Realized I have never started a #wikipedia article and didn't realize it needs to be somehow approved first. If anyone wants to help its here en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:

The call for papers for the LIMITS 2022 workshop is out, for those interested in the relation between computing, ecological limits in general, climate- and climate justice. 🌱

🥕 We are planning Karrot Days in February 2022 (12th to 22nd), to create a more focused time to participate/contribute.

🧑‍💻 It can be about any tech, social, human, or community topics, or something else!

💡 It can be doing focused work, talking, connecting, philosophising, creating - whatever people will make of it.

❓ What would interest you enough to want to participate?

Working on a free generative art avatar project for @immersspace , the @activitypub app for 3D worlds. Immers Space has an avatar collection system based on activities and copying instead of blockchain and exclusivity. The project will be at nice.freetreasures.shop
