OnionShare 2 adds anonymous dropboxes, supports new Tor addresses, and is translated into a dozen new languages micahflee.com/2019/02/onionsha

I think I've come to the conclusion that I enjoy web development - I just fucking hate the industry. (What I've seen of it so far at least).

Business' don't have any concern with the basic rights of people (privacy specifically). Yes they stick a "Privacy Policy" in the right place, but that's only to tell you how they are violating it, in general.

We really are in a dirty place in the networked age. We need to do better. And developers need to stop worshipping at the alter if fucking #google

#TorProject is a way of using the internet through an ever-changing randomly-connected network of volunteers' computers. The Tor web browser is based on Firefox, but works through the Tor network.

Tor is slower and trickier to use than normal web browsing, but it provides a higher level of privacy as Tor's randomness makes it more difficult to track people online.

#AlternativesAtoZ #Tor

Added an "alternatives to slack" page with Matrix / Riot on it, hope this is ok:

switching.social/ethical-alter

Any corrections/suggestions?

Probably one of the biggest unacknowledged impacts of capitalism on our life is the artificial scarcity of time.

Without capitalism, we could all work less. We could rest more. We could let selfcare, play and creation come intuitively. A lot of things don’t need to be scheduled.
We could just let time happen without any obligation to make a particular use of it.

stage 3 disillusionment: what we're doing is actively harmful. we're destroying privacy, personal relationships, and possibly democracy itself in the name of automating away people's jobs so a billionaire can have a bigger yacht.

where I'm at now: Today I will fix the next bug on my JIRA queue, an activity which is futile, but not more futile than all other human endeavor

(2/2)

stage 0 (illusionment): WOW i got a job at $FAMOUS_TECH_COMPANY so excited to be part of something bigger than myself and contribute to the magnum opus that is the computer revolution. Change the world!

stage 1 disillusionment: we are shipping buggy, unmaintainable, resource-hogging, fragile crap software because there's no financial incentive for craftsmanship

stage 2 disillusionment: the "tech industry" hasn't invented a new, useful technology in the last 10 years, maybe longer

(1/2)

No one needs to starve. No one needs to freeze. No one needs to die. There is enough for everyone. More empty homes than all the people without them, more food than grocers can even sell. The labor and the materials to end scarcity exist now. It is not a far-off dream. We can end scarcity in this life.

Machines can be created with intent though. And if they're proprietary that intent is harder to subvert.
@polychrome
Is this your picture? If so would you be willing to provide a high res file for printing and displaying in a #hacklab?

We are slaves to the machines we build for ourselves.

Can you point to one thing to read in particular?

ActivityPub is an enabling technology. It enables alternatives to existing capitalist platforms. Social media is the most obvious application, but 2019 is going to see the beginning of federated alternatives to gaming platforms. software development, and economic organization. This is critical infrastructure for revolutionary dual power structures to offer viable economic alternatives to capitalism and political alternatives to hierarchical organizations

This is the official account for #yaaps, an early stage fediverse project to resist late stage capitalism. It's pure ActivityPub, 100% Lua, and guaranteed vaporware if I spend as much time here as my main

Open call for ideas: Open source agriculture workshop

The P2P Lab is happy to announce the launch of “Open source agriculture: Co-create with Tzoumakers” , celebrating the gathering of designers, makers and farmers who are adapting to the digitised world. The workshop will be hosted at the rural makerspace “Tzoumakers”, which is located in NW Greece.

#Prismo has gotten a couple new contributors in the past couple weeks. Great to see more activity in the project.

If you're interested in a link sharing site (think reddit, HN, lobsters) on the #fediverse, head over to the repo and join in.

So with your feedback, there are two features I have to work on for #Fedilab:

- #Peertube: allow videos to be run in background with a media controller in the top bar. And I will add the ability to create your Playlist.

- #GNUSocial and #friendica implement groups feature.

What is it about the online that makes people (dudes) think that existing in a public space means they can engage in unlimited unwanted interaction? That's not how public spaces work.

If you can't even fathom the concept of consent at the level of
a conversation, you're a menace at best.

I have this feeling that a lot of ActivityPub's success (aside from the good parts of its design and let's face it the popularity rush that came from Mastodon's uptake) came from having an accessible "tutorial" style overview section in the spec with a story to it (something not a lot of specs have) w3.org/TR/activitypub/#Overvie

I'd like to hear from implementors though... was this true for you? Did that section make a difference in helping your understanding?

social.coop

social.coop is 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]
