#I2P - a privacy-by-design and fully distributed network - offers a communication interface called "SAM".

SAM enables applications to communicate over I2P (example: a distributed storage layer).

#diva has created a modern, well-tested #js SAM library to use I2P by any #javascript application, it's on @codeberg and released as v1.0.3 today 🎉 : codeberg.org/diva.exchange/i2p

SAM specs here: geti2p.net/en/docs/api/samv3

📦 Package here: npmjs.com/package/@diva.exchan

As always: feedback very welcome! 🙏 😍


I'm hoping someone can help me with something. Other than ebay, where do y'all find parts, chargers, etc for old electronics. I found an old Dell Axim x51 but I don't have the charger for it. I would really like it to be in Canada because getting this working is more of an interest than a necessity and I don't want to pay too much for shipping.


Buy used, when you buy.

Repair things when you can.

Stop consuming media that was produced by billionaires and invest your time in open content.

Create open content.

Share the thing you've created with your friends.

Write a blog, instead of posting to facebook. Use mastodon instead of twitter.

Buy your food locally, and when it's in season.

New release of #joinmarket , please spread the word:


This one is pretty small but you should def. update as a maker as there is an important fix (thanks @orionwl for spotting that!). It also adds custom address labels, a feature that many users like.

#bitcoin #coinjoin

Is #BitcoinTwitter lead by emotion, dopamine, ego or just all three?

Every time something minor happens they come here for 48 hours then bugger off. :bull:

Using #bitcoin on the street I need a #lightning⚡ invoice to pay.
Not a website to visit,
not LNURL,
not an onchain address,
not even a paynym.
#BOLT12 (with onion messages) fix this.
With blinded paths even the receiver node will be able to stay hidden.

Keep the Fediverse connected!

Keep yourself curious!

A proposal: on some content you like, you see a hashtag you are not used to follow. Follow that hashtag and find X persons using it. Follow them.

Worst thing happens: you may unfollow them someday... The Fediverse is only as strong as we are inter-connected! <3

Wonderful chart by Abbie Richards, mis- and disinformation researcher with focus on #TikTok and #conspiracy theories. Have saved it to disc.

I never knew that Greta Thunberg is a time traveler.

P. S. Here's a recent report on active transportation infrastructure (walking/cycling/etc.) in Scarborough. If you're unfamiliar, it's Toronto's most ethnically diverse borough and has the highest % of residents in poverty. A full quarter of residents don't drive. However, this typical car-centred postwar suburb has been desperately underserved on the active transport & public transit front. It has a higher % of pedestrian fatalities than other areas of the city.

Anyway, this report summarizes the whole situation and proposes a strategy for making Scarborough livable without a car.

Luca Bonissi bought a Lenovo laptop which came with a pre-installed Windows license he didn't need. He asked for refund, Lenovo refused.

I've been rewatching ST:TNG and I'm always so in awe of, and inspired by, Picard. Like, every time I go through the series it hits me the same way. I just love

Police used 3 cameras mounted on utility poles to secretly record someone's life 24/7 for 18 months. A court said cops didn't need a warrant for this highly intrusive act. We're asking SCOTUS to make clear that's a violation of the Fourth Amendment. eff.org/press/releases/eff-sup
