Pinned toot

after about a year of roaming the fediverse, I'm settling (for now?) on my primarily public presence preferences.

my main fediverse location is now @chava

it's a friendica node, so should be reachable by ActivityPub, OStatus and Diaspora protocols.

¡nos vemos!

@xj9 I'm so tired of the extreme anti-privacy movement.

* Not caring if millions of accounts get leaked
* Considering lack of security as merely a cost of doing business
* Not caring whether people get doxed or harassed or outed
* Assuming that data created by people always belongs to the megacorp
* These cosy relationships with letter agencies are oh so predictable
* The culture of embedding off-site links into web software so that they give companies a lot of data about how people are using it
* Assuming its ok to have telemetry on by default without telling the user or having any kind of informed consent

La otra parte de la conversación es el porqué de la necesidad de estos cambios. No conozco las tecnologías en sí, pero lo que yo he ido entendiendo es lo siguiente.

Ostatus no es mejor ni peor que AP, es simplemente anterior. He visto incluso a gente defenderlo técnicamente frente a AP. A éste último se le achaca por ejemplo que está poco definido y que cada cuál lo implementa a su manera por lo que terminas dependiendo no del estándar sino de la implementación, es decir, del desarrollador del software con el que te tienes que comunicar.

Y por otro lado, por mucho que te de un cierto trabajo mantenerlo, Mastodon lo tiene porque cuando nació casi nadie usaba AP y si no llega a ser por poder conectarse a GS no se hubiera podido conectar a nada o casi nada y ahora que ya no nos necesita parece que incluso le viene bien aislarnos.

GNU/Social will support ActivityPub via my plugin before Mastodon and Pleroma deprecate OStatus.

I look forward to helping modernize the GS code base this summer 😄

If I could give legit 100% serious advice to straight cis dudes:
-If you're able, get therapy. Normalize talking & examining your thoughts & feelings.
-If you feel weird being vulnerable around u'r crew get a new crew. They're not tryna make the life changes you are.
-Is what you're feeling really Anger? Or is it Isolation, is it Abandonment, is it Insecurity, is it Hopelessness? What's the most effective strategy to de-escalate the zenith of those emotions/thoughts?
-Normalize being challenged.

The ultimate cheat sheet?

* curl or browser interface
* 56 programming languages
* several DBMSes
* 1000+ UNIX commands
* CLI interface too (cht.sh)
* Use directly from code editors

Look away from your screen for a bit. Allow your eyes and mind to rest.

The Event Horizon Telescope, incidentally, is a fantastic example of a large scale decentralised non-governmental collaboration.

That black hole image was taken using 8 separately managed radio telescopes scattered across the planet. It was organised by scientists working in 60 different research institutes in 17 countries across 6 continents. With no motive beyond trying to learn something which they didn't know before.

Hey, y'all, #WeDistribute is looking for writers and knowledge experts to contribute articles for continued coverage of the fediverse and decentralized communication systems in general.

I've been doing it all on my own for quite a while, it's hard to do everything yourself, and there are probably domain experts out there that know way more than I do about specific platforms!
