Posted 7 photos: When I first moved here I wished for steps down to my nearest bit of beach, instead of the slippery muddy slope down the verge. One of my neighbours had been thinking about solving this problem for some years, too, and had both expertise and vision to actually do it (unlike me). So with five and a half hours work (including lunch break) and lots of digging and rock hauling, the two of us built these steps. It was deeply satisfying, and they look like they've always been there.

Federation for Preprint Servers. What if preprint servers, peer review systems, data and code repositories could all talk to each like? Just like the federated micro-blogging system Mastodon, which is much friendlier than Twitter?

Yesterday in a preparation call for the #SocialHub and #NGI0 events for the European Commission (starting 19 April) I realized that I had been promoting a wrong slogan and hashtag for the vision of #FediverseFutures

Instead of "Social Media Reimagined" we should adopt "Social Networking Reimagined".

'Networking' is both broader - @activitypub allows any app domain to be integrated - and has direct connection to the real world of #social networks, which in #fediverse seamlessly extends online.

#Signal turning into a crypto-ponzi currency scheme?


That Signal:
- isn't really free/libre software (as Moxie denied freedom to redistribute modified version)
- would *never* federate (political choice of centralization)
- updated server software wasn't published
- invaded people's phonebooks
- runs on Amazon+NSA's infrastructure
- is virtually impossible to use out of Google's infrastructure -
- etc.

...didn't seem to be enough to alarm Signal users.

AH also forgot what is probably the most important from a privacy/information-security perspective:

- impossible to use without a *phone-number*!

Now the true objective of all these political choices (strong identifier + centralization + control of the distribution, etc) becomes clear: there is a financial interest to keep the users captive, to get rich with ponzi-crypto....

... well done, Moxie, many of us didn't see it coming! :)

Hammer. Die Leute von KATAPULT gründen eine Lokalzeitung für Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Weil es da wohl nichts anderes als den Nordkurier gibt und der scheint... ziemlich kacke zu sein? Im Sinne von offen rassistisch.

Drücke ganz arg die Daumen, dass das klappt mit der Gründung.

good morning ✨ don't forget to work towards the redistribution of wealth and the liberation of colonies and semi-colonies in everything you do 💖

OK !!!

I'm up and running, although at the moment only at times the boss can monitor me, just in case I run amok!

But I'm running, so feel free to invoke me.
