Osada 2.0 released

Merry Xmas from Zotlabs.

Osada is an easy to use social network server of the blogging or "conversational" persuasion running over the ActivityPub protocol.  There's a great deal of mature and proven functionality available as the underlying codebase has been developed since 2001 and part of the fediverse since 2010.

There are several plugins/addons providing LDAP authentication, personal wikis, content filtering, "friend/acquaintance zoom control", Twitter/StatusNet API and much more.

Sin contar a los #bots y a los usuarios duplicados, la cantidad de personas activas en las redes del #fediverso posiblemente alcance a superar el millon

¿o estoy exagerando?

Hi I'm Mike. I've been around the Fediverse for a while. I created the Friendica, RedMatrix, Hubzilla, Osada, and Zap projects. I developed the DFRN, Zot/Zot6 and OWA protocols.

My software does some pretty cool stuff, but I'm not out to win any popularity contests and world domination isn't my thing. I played a non-trivial role in creating the modern internet and now I'm investing my time and energy creating ethical alternative services to bring back a real sense of privacy and self-determination.

I have a modest farm in Bugger All, Australia and raise cows, horses, and chooks. I drink kickass #homebrew and play a mean #guitar.

Have a great day.

On Osada mentions don't change the scope or visibility of a DM. That must be a Mastodon thing.

Hey english speakers geeks!

it's time to replace the term "free software" by "libre software" for free as in freedom software to differentiate it from free as gratis software!!

What do you think??

> using domains for identity

hell no. Identity is "who you are". Domains are "where you are". There's a big difference. Your posts should keep working if you change your software, change your username, change your DNS address, or change *all of the above*. Anything else means you really don't own your content.

We've been using nomadic identity in Hubzilla since around 2012 and the technology is reasonably mature, but the original spec was hard to grok. Zot6 is basically ActivityStreams with a nomadic "envelope" and Zap is the reference implementation. I'm currently porting Hubzilla to the new protocol.

Started on an Osada project page. I'll clean it up and organise it better over time, but we're in desperate need of a place for Facebook and Google+ refugees to learn a little bit about Osada and its unique role in the fediverse. Something is better than nothing.

We are preparing to release federation support and we want your feedback!

Can you think of any safety, privacy or security features that we haven't announced or already support?

We appreciate any ideas/feedback that can make :pixelfed: more safe and secure. #pixelfed
