How am I only finding out about @write_as CLI?! This is so cool and definitely how I'll be publishing to my blogs from now on.

As #Signal has had severe problems recently due to its centralised nature, here are some decentralised libre alternatives with Fediverse accounts:

➡️ @snikket_im - Initiative to give XMPP a consistent look and feel on instances and apps, to make it more attractive to new users

➡️ @xmpp - XMPP standards foundation

➡️ @delta - Decentralised messaging through email

➡️ @matrix - Best known for the Element client

➡️ @briar - Peer-to-peer encrypted messaging

➡️ @Jami - Peer-to-peer Skype alternative

There is an ActivityPub/Fediverse plugin for Drupal by @swentel
It could enable lots of older projects to become part of the fediverse if installed. I would love to see some local libraries use it.

In a month I'll be giving a talk about #gemini at the Italian #linuxday (online) :blob0w0:

I'm a bit scared since it's my first time talking at an event, but I'm also looking forward to it.

There is something that you'd like to see in a presentation about Gemini? I'm thinking of avoiding the whole "the web sucks" theme as much as possible and focus on the "human" aspect of it, since it's what makes the project awesome 🤩

It’s here! ISSUE 02: Inoculate, hot off the distributed press. This issue contains eight creative pieces—(non)fiction, interactive media, and stories from the front lines of alternative networks built on care & solidarity.

Is there anyone in Canada who would be interested in helping to set up an instance of Mobilizon?

Mobilizon is for managing events. It’s free-libre, and federated.

My interest in this? I’d like to help the fediverse grow, and provide a useful service. I’d need help with some geeky things, like installation and whatnot.

Discovery season 3 is sooooo good! I've been binge watching season 2 and 3 and I'm loving it. I still can't get over the incredible visuals!

There are over 162,960 events listed on #Mobilizon and now over 80 instances listed on!

TIL about DRM-free Living Guide by Detective By Design. They have links to many DRM free music, movie and ebook stores.

Bitcoin Core 22.0 now supports connecting to the Bitcoin network through I2P. Users can shield their IP address, allowing them to better protect their privacy.

This looks *amazing*.

QT TimHaines: Finally, I’m ready to share my new thing.

It’s called License Burger.

1⃣ It monitors your open-source dependencies
2⃣ It alerts on your pull requests when your team introduces license obligations that are harmful to your project.

One of my favorite is 's For The Record. Great insight with loads of interesting investigations and stories.

Additionally, the emails are simple plain text so it plays nicely with .
