Dating on the #fediverse ?

How cool would that be? Can we make it unique and much different and better than what regular #dating sites tend to offer? Much more than mindless swiping left of right, judging people like prize animals?

Participate in a brainstorm on #lemmy and let your imagination roam freely (well.. mind the CoC, though ๐Ÿ˜€ ).

@ntnsndr ah looks interesting ( - I am really feeling that having a decent theory of community/social/political organising is really useful.. + recipes, tools, and communities for implementing such theories.

Most tools/practises around me are not deeply routed in such theories.

Although I then wonder whether extracting theory from practise, then trying to reimplement practise elsewhere loses something. Practise -> practise transfer could be nice.


@coopcloud maybe we can switch to running on with co-op cloud... I don't think I saw a Mastodon recipe yet?

Also, I wondered if @ntnsndr has connected with Cybernetics (anarchist or otherwise) at all?

There is some network/flow between co-ops, commons, anarchism, community organising, cybernetics, ... with some academic connection, some grassroots stuff...

After reading Anarchist Cybernetics by Thomas Swann in our @karrot book club, he pointed us to the Anarchic Agreements 1&2 that he had worked on (see which had been used in some form in the creation of one of the groups that use Karrot (foodsharing Copenhagen). Nice circle!

@Matt_Noyes I don't actually have any income right now, so if I joined, I would be using my savings... which seems a bit nonsensical...

I do like the concept in general though...

@beckett @emi @ntnsndr

@Matt_Noyes I'm not sure what one is, I could look it up, but perhaps you have a brief explanation and a recommend resource to learn more?


I'm really happy to share that I've transfered the #ForkAwesome project to a group of very passionate individuals. Thanks to their patience and motivation, there is a future for set of #Icons that grew so important for a lot of people in the #floss community. Special thanks to @douginamug who made this transition process so smooth and for driving the community. Follow the project at @forkawesome and on

Hey #Fediverse! There is a new #project: #OpenHospitalityNetwork (#OHN). It helps to connect travellers with those who want to host them. Like AirBnB but better, focusing on the core idea of it.

Website: openhospitalitynetwork.github.

Today's ๐Ÿ“… meeting 6pm CEST:

"Remember that stuff about crazy people and bad code? The internet is that except itโ€™s literally a billion times worse. Websites that are glorified shopping carts with maybe three dynamic pages are maintained by teams of people around the clock, because the truth is everything is breaking all the time, everywhere, for everyone. Right now someone who works for Facebook is getting tens of thousands of error messages and frantically trying to find the problem before the whole charade collapses. Thereโ€™s a team at a Google office that hasnโ€™t slept in three days. Somewhere thereโ€™s a database programmer surrounded by empty Mountain Dew bottles whose husband thinks sheโ€™s dead. And if these people stop, the world burns. Most people donโ€™t even know what sysadmins do, but trust me, if they all took a lunch break at the same time they wouldnโ€™t make it to the deli before you ran out of bullets protecting your canned goods from roving bands of mutants."

I am often asked if I will โ€œreturn to cryptocurrencyโ€ or begin regularly sharing my thoughts on the topic again. My answer is a wholehearted โ€œnoโ€, but to avoid repeating myself I figure it might be worthwhile briefly explaining why hereโ€ฆ

@douginamug there is also Dresden to London via Prague with regiojet. Not as long as it sounds too...

@douginamug which bus route were you looking at? It seemed a bit limited during my brief look the other day.

Would be amazing to have #QuadraticVoting integrated in code-forges (e.g. @codeberg, @gitea_blog_bot, github) so that people can indicate relative importance of issues **and be encouraged to review issues they've opened/voted upon**

This would be a big feature, but possibly an incredible feature, motivating the crowd to do its own triaging ๐Ÿค”

@mariha yes! always have time to chat about karrot ๐Ÿ—จ๏ธ ๐Ÿฅ•

glad the recording was useful! I listened to the first 10 seconds then was horrified, turned it off, and wondered about exploring some "voice"/emotion/identity topics next ๐Ÿ˜–

@ntnsndr we could in theory use pull in info from the community rule library, that people can use inside karrot.

although maybe just "inspired by", there looks a lot of noise in at the moment, and we also need to handle translations.

... or the other way is let the groups share stuff between them, rather than us setting up templates/frameworks. I'd like to explore that direction, what do I know anyway!

@ntnsndr the idea is we'll implement the features from the prototype inside karrot once we (maybe me) have capacity. I think for these groups, having it as part of the tool they use makes most sense.

someone can steal the ideas for a standalone tool :)

we discussed group structure (and values) features too during the process, but decided to focus on agreements to keep it focused on what we felt was most important/useful.

@t0k it seems a bit trickier than that: talks about "sublicenseing" and also says "The above copyright notice and this permission notice shall be included in all copies or substantial portions of the Software."

and actually a bit hard to find out! was drowning in stack overflow comments, thats why I was looking for some projects that had actually done it. getting some good engagement on here though ๐Ÿ‘
