If you need to convince your friends to use Wire or Signal instead of Facebook’s WhatsApp, tell them to watch this talk I gave OVER SIX YEARS AGO:

#introduction #introductions Hey #fediverse I am finally trying to ditch corporate social media and privacy unfriendly apps. During this internal and very difficult process I have discovered the #decentralized terminology. Here I am to meet you all and why not, bring other folks over to the #fediverseSide! I like to use my social media to pick up information on a wide range of topics such as:
#politics #activism #privacy #security #digitalrights #foss #science #localnews #libreplanet #degoogled

✨ Fediverse - Social Reimagined

We should adopt broader perspectives on what #fediverse means. While we consider our app domain in terms of end-users, we look at fedi as an infrastructure layer. It's more than that:

Fediverse is a Social Fabric!

I posted a follow-up to my proposal to start a #FediverseFutures initiative outlining this idea:

socialhub.activitypub.rocks/t/

Give your feedback on the #SocialHub forum, so we'll make this #YearOfTheFediverse rock 🚀

Join the initiative?
Boosts welcome.

If you feel strongly on: Fediverse culture, meta-analysis, commentary, or community here, I think the Fedi at large needs to do some preventative work to ensure that "Fediverse" does not become synonymous with "far right angry people".

I have library.activitypub.dev which could use more submissions. We need ppl to encourage reporters to document how Fedi was the "no Trump tweets here" place that mainstream social media is now becoming & the refuge for trans right activists.

More ideas needed.

More-or-less #dumpsterdiving in first person - one can easily find great stuff (even electronics!) by looking into a large dumpster area of rich neighbors.

I should write about this later.

This whole drama with people leaving #WhatsApp for #Signal or #Telegram doesn't make much sense IMO. These apps are literally identical with the only difference that they're not operated by #Facebook.
What would be different is if these apps would implement federation (fe #XMPP).

Ongoing discussions regarding Digital Services Act cannot accept thinking out-of-box. Our whole society is trapped in discussions about how to regulate the big, centralized platforms, rather than give the opportunity to expand for decentralized platforms like Mastodon.

I wanna give a shout out to a piece of open source android software I have been using lately that I got off fdroid called Antenna Pod.

I was looking for a good podcast app that was simple and worked well and Antenna Pod is definitely that. It works wonderfully and if you are looking for a podcast app on android I highly recommend it.

Learned of another self-hostable, privacy-focused front end similar to Teddit called Libreddit.

libredd.it

Source code: github.com/spikecodes/libreddi

Differences as of now are:
- Libreddit mirrors Reddit’s redesign while Teddit mirrors the old.
- Libreddit is written in Rust while Teddit is in Node.js.
