I like imagining a world where ActivityPub does not rely on DNS

If you were looking to write the perfect *non-technical* book on decentralisation, what would you include? 🤔

(boosts appreciated!)

@dajbelshaw @adinfinitum@activism.openworlds.info yeah, the website is woefully out of date as there's a lot going on in different repos and branches. It's heading towards a decentralised ecosystem of modular/extensible apps. More public updates soon hopefully!

Our system of compensation in software is so backwards.

Businesses hire massive numbers of programmers who get paid an insane amount of money to basically glue together open source software.

But a lot of amazing open source software work goes uncompensated. It breaks my heart.

I kind of like #lemmy, but I'm bothered by the fact it is done by a tankie who deflects human-rights abuse as soon as it's done by an authoritarian regime he believes to be communist or anti-united-states.

To mass murder done by tankies he response with, "Imao sounds like we got the fuckin high score then u fuckin lib."

How is it possible that no one is bothered by that?
... I've never seen a discussion happening about that. #lemmy

I'm sure there are some exceptions to the rule - but it seems that real-time content is bottom posted, asynchronous is top posted.


Here is an Android app I appreciate a lot. It's living its life totally in the background, doing its deed every day without a sound. It allows to me to synchronise my calendars and todo lists with other parties through my nextcloud instance, enabling necessary coordination with my family and others without resorting to Google.

Is there any recommandation for a specific Peertube instance for activism content? I see a high potential during the next weeks and don't want to see all the content on Youtube, where it might get deleted. Are there also other good livestreaming platforms than twitch, Youtube or Facebook? Peertube doesn't have this feature yet.

En ces temps de confinement, le collectif @ChatonsOrg s'est posé la question du rôle à jouer et comment participer. L'une des réponses est une page de présentation et d'orientation vers des services libres : entraide.chatons.org/fr

#ForgeFed news 😀

We sent @NGIZero the funding plan, waiting for them to approve it. The funded work, by zPlus and me, will be the spec, reference implementation (Vervis), implementation in existing forge (Pagure), and an implementation guide.

Possibly work on Gitea will get funded too, we don't know yet.

The virus is slowing down my work, I hope it doesn't for the others! zPlus and I happen to be in countries where it's pretty crazy right now. Stay safe and strong ☮&❤


@datatitian Indeed! He was such a good dog. Here's Oppen mourning his comrade.
Big thanks to @strypey , @lightone and others for putting together git.feneas.org/feneas/fedivers… with links to all known #ActivityPub implementations, including lists to other lists!

> Aside from project homepages and issue trackers, and comments made on the fediverse, the SocialWG has a list of projects they hoped would implement ActivityPub and links to Issues where it's discussed. Also, there is an implementation report on ActivityPub.rocks. @mayel from Social.coop created a web spreadsheet of AP apps and their characteristics. More projects using AP are profiled on We Distribute by Sean Tilley and his team. Alternative.to has a list of AP servers and client apps. The ActivityPub tag on GH is also a way to discover projects experimenting with AP.

@Truck @humanetech

The idea is that your project's visibility and access to it won't depend on whether the user's account is on your forge or some other forge. You can create one account and participate everywhere. Project search, discovery, recommendations, etc. find stuff from the whole network. No single forge has more power over users than any other.


- Orgs/teams/groups can include users from different forges
- You can push commits to repos on different forges
- You can open issues, open merge requests, comment, send code review, etc. across forges
- Repos, CI servers, wikis, issue trackers etc. can be on different servers and still seamlessly work together
