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:
Join the initiative?
Peertube v3's support for live streaming is incredibly exciting https://framablog.org/2021/01/07/peertube-v3-its-a-live-a-liiiiive/
obs integration too!
Great news, thank you for your hard work Peertube / Framasoft teams!
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 https://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.

Recently I've been lurking around on #Lemmy and here are some of my preliminary thoughts about this social network.
Wikileaks just dumped all of their files online. Everything from Hillary Clinton's emails, McCain's being guilty, Vegas shooting done by an FBI sniper, Steve Jobs HIV letter, PedoPodesta, Afghanistan, Syria, Iran, Bilderberg, CIA agents arrested for rape, WHO pandemic. Happy Digging! Here you go, please read and pass it on..... https://file.wikileaks.org/file/... These are Clinton’s emails: https://file.wikileaks.org/file/clinton-emails/

Great for memes — not so great for privacy.
EXPOSED! #Amazon – Sell there at your own risk
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.
Source code: https://github.com/spikecodes/libreddit
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.
Just testing my single-user instance;)
