I will create an artisanal bespoke wireless private mesh network before I tolerate social credit systems.

Attack models abound on the entire fediverse.

It is inherently a non-secure protocol we are running on.

It is inherently non-private as well.

I was outbid by Wordpress, I offered Verizon 100 Pixelfed shares for Tumblr 😔

i mean honestly you may think I‘m joking with I Probably Could Do A Better Job Than Whoever Ran Tumblr or that clearly this is hubris but consider this:

Yahoo bought tumblr for 1.1 billion USD

Verozon just sold tumblr for, reportedly, 3 million USD, maybe less

I‘m honest to god confident that most people that have actually ever used a website could have managed to run it in a way that doesn’t make it lose 99.3% of it’s valuation in under 10 years

What options (instances) exist for hosting lots of pictures in the Fediverse(-adjacent) world? I have on the order of 1200 or so images.

Thanks for the recommendations!

Verizon sold Tumblr to Automattic and nobody will say for how much.

> Mr. Mullenweg said his company intends to maintain the existing policy that bans adult content. He said he has long been a Tumblr user and sees the site as complementary to WordPress.com. “It’s just fun,” he said of Tumblr. “We’re not going to change any of that.”

:blobglare:

I wonder if I will ever have sufficient breathing room after Just Managing To Survive that I will be able to build something.

It's been a very long time.

My morning is rapidly reminding me of all those times between skits on Chappelle's Show where he was like "I am gonna get canceled for SURE"

This would have sounded like sci-fi conspiracy nonsense not that long ago, but: the US government has military spy balloons flying above my hometown, potentially watching and recording all vehicle movements. Umm, wtf?

by the way if stuff like https://blog.dereferenced.org/whats-cooking-in-the-pleroma-1-0-5-maintenance-release would be useful for develop, i'll try to write a weekly summary of what is going on there as well.

I still can't believe how much I rely on avatars to identify folk on here that I don't often interact with.

Someone changes one.

I released the source code of the scheduler feature (web app)

framagit.org/tom79/fediplan

You can test it at:

plan.fedilab.app/

Please, have a look at the readme, it's still a work in progress.

PS: Nothing is stored locally on the server and no third services are used for hosting data.

Purism posted a blogpost about "User empowerment is the best tool to curb online harassment" puri.sm/posts/curbing-harassme

It cites OcapPub (which I've been working on), and it's a bit awkward because I agree with the *title*, and *some* of the gist of the body, but I've been uncomfortable with how Purism has handled abuse stuff historically, and there are some important things in the article I don't agree with either. So here's a thread with some of my thoughts. (Sorry it's mostly bullet points.)
