Hello social.coop people,

I'm Alfonso, connecting from the Pyrenees, the mountains in the south of France.

I'm a developer and architect interested in to build free digital ecosystem attached to territories.

Here in the Pyrenees, i've co-founded Lab Place, a maker and co-working space in a little village lab.place

I also take part in the international network Civicwise civicwise.org

Brilliant essay by Peter Linebaugh, via Dave Roediger. What if we told our history of struggle in a way that integrated and centered Indigenous people and ecology?

"It’s clear that DuckDuckGo doesn’t offer the level of privacy that it promises to users. And unfortunately, I’m not sure that any company or software can protect your browsing data. The internet doesn’t run on privacy or anonymity; it runs on money, and your data is worth a lot of money."

la última frase a fuego!!!!

por cierto, buenas mañanas, mastas!!!

So yeah I'm coding a Tetris implementation using SDL because I just want to do something that works and learn stuff.

It's not that easy!

@kev I have similar feelings about pretty much everything I'm involved in. I think it's because the more we learn about a particular subject, the more we know we don't know. I've looked into the Dunning–Kruger effect (not an expert by any means). I feel like there's a large portion of any population that gets caught on the proverbial "Mount Stupid" who think they're experts. Many people who have progressed beyond the Mount get stuck in the trough that comes after, and it's hard to get out of.

Bonjour !

Pour bien commencer la semaine, voici un petit retour d'expérience sur la mise en place d'un serveur yunohost pour participer à la décentralisation à mon humble niveau :

Something which the latest exodus has highlighted is expectations around direct messages.

I think Mastodon renaming DMs to “conversations” is going to be confusing to new users. Conversations is a pretty vague term. Replying to public posts in your timeline could easily be considered to be a conversation. Also the fact that conversation is an existing technical field identifying a thread in the ActivityPub protocol is likely to create confusion in support forums.

Concern about lack of end-to-end security for DMs isn't new. It's hard to implement that level of security in a web app in a manner which is more than mere theatrics. Commercial systems may be able to get away with making ludicrous security claims (eg. Zoom), but not here. My attitude has always been that if you want private chat with strong security then use an app dedicated to that (eg. Briar).

The fediverse today trying to explain to newcomers where they are.

https://meshtastic.org/

#Meshtastic is an off-grid, encrypted communication platform that runs #opensource software on affordable radios. These radios rebroadcast messages they receive in order to create a mesh network. The underlying technology, #LoRa is a long range radio protocol that is available to most regions without needing certification like ham operators.

Paired with the #Meshtastic companion app, you are able to send and receive #encrypted messages on your personal mesh. These radios have low power draw so they have excellent battery life. Perfect for outdoor excursions like backpacking, hiking, paragliding, and skiing where communication can be sparse.

Radios can be paired to a single phone so that you're able to message your friends and family, and they can address your specific radio.
