social.coop#decentralization

New instance, new #introduction.

I'm of the age and history such that I have nostalgia for computing circa 2000: the #semanticweb was relevant, #OpenBSD had as much potential as Linux, #freesoftware was a political act, #decentralization was understood to be core to the Internet.

I plan to use this account to anonymously toot about tech and #society and the #intersection thereof.

The Digilife co-operative just launched. Check it out if you are interested in #privacy #trust #decentralization #equality
#platformcoop
#coops

Interesting for
#socialcoop people.

2017 is going to be totally rad - even has a whole space dedicated to this year mozillafestival.org/

Today I was reminded that you really have to take people on the path too #FLOSS, #coops, #commons, #federation, #decentralization, #community, #encryption, #UBI or whatever you think makes the world better for everyone.

How did you get to where you are now? Where did you start?

Anyone else seen Subutai and have thoughts? It looks amazing for #decentralization and probably #cooperatives. subutai.io/index.html


Hi there, I'm generally interested in Beauty, that is everything generated by passion, and particularly in and

whois (dig +short gitlab.com) | grep OrgName | sed 's/OrgName: *\(.*\)/\1/' returns “Microsoft Corporation”

Analogous command applied for status.gitlab.com returns “DigitalOcean, LLC”.

Despite of that, both sites are down now, with the former returning 500 and the latter 502. According to people on Twitter, it is not the first #GitLab outage in the recent time ( twitter.com/gitlabstatus/statu ).

Another argument for decentralized repository management.

"The Importance of Choosing the Correct Mastodon Instance" with references to @aeris Choosing your instance is hard. (And public statements are not enough, they can be misleading and TL;DR, anyway)

Is anyone giving thought to the mobile computer form factor? I ask because they could be quite a bit more powerful and with a larger battery if we divorced the screen from the computation/battery parts. Communicate via Bluetooth perhaps? #mobile #decentralization

I’ve started a #free_software project and published the code on gitlab.com. Complaints have been raised that #GitHub would be easier to track.

If people were able to create decentralized social networks like #Mastodon, then shouldn’t it be possible to create also decentralized social coding protocols? #IPFS could possibly be used as a #Git storage backend and #PGP for authentication.

Oh, I just saw that Ring 1.0 is finally out since yesterday!

Ring is an open source equivalent to Skype which is fully decentralized and which encrypts all video, audio and text communications.

It is compatible with GNU/Linux, Windows, MacOS and Android

Another good initiative to support!

Filecoin is a kind of crypto-currency to allow people to share storage space. So you can store your encrypted data on someone else computer against Filecoins.

As I don't see any news about this on the website, you may need to subscribe to the newsletter to get information to become investor in Filecoin.
