Imagine how good the #fediverse would be if every major #SocialNetworking platform was #bridged here. Talk to everyone you know, who for some reason still decide to use inferior platforms that spy on you, while keeping at least *some* of your #privacy. I'm not even saying adopt #ActivityPub as the gold standard, just any form of #integration would be great. Let's face it, there's not enough people who care enough to leave their platform anyway, so they're really just growing their population.

WANTED: If anyone wants to document a idea we as an development community could definitely use it.

Things off the top of my head:
* webfinger
* http signatures
* federating Block activities
* custom emojis
* e2e encryption
* nodeinfo2
* federating.md

If you're interested, just go for it. Or reach out to me if you need a cheerleader to go *rah rah* and motivate you.

Process is at:

The Swiss government released its SwissCovid contact tracing app on Thursday: swissinfo.ch/eng/switzerland-l As many of our users have noted, the app’s use of Bluetooth makes you vulnerable to Google location tracking. Here's our perspective, as Switzerland's largest privacy company: 1/8

For a week or so there appears to be more spam bots on PeerTube leaving comments.
Thank you to everybody that reports spam and undesirable comments. Public signups are closed on PeerTube·Social so they are mostly coming from other instances. I remind that reports do not only go to your instance admins but the original instance too.
There are more comments than videos, and they are harden to find to check them so reporting them really helps us to get rid of them.

@nitot C'est une bonne idée ces autocollants. D'ailleurs je me demande si la loi ne devrait pas forcer les gens à déclarer à leurs visiteurs quand ils ont une enceinte connectée à la maison. Ca m'est arrivé 2 fois de visiter des gens et de l'apprendre par hasard dans le flot de la conversation, et ça met je trouve très mal à l'aise.

#Peertube commence a être bien utilisé, mais a besoin de notre soutien continu pour affronter goliaht-tube dans l'esprit des diffuseurs de vidéos. Soutenons et parlons-en sur nos autres rézosocios !
Pour moi c'est raté, j'ai déjà dégooglisé 😠

FSF boycotts Amazon not just because of their #DRM but also because we are a small publisher -- we urge you to ignore #PrimeDay too. If you don't, you can still redirect some money by selecting FSF as your charity at smile.amazon.com.

In the early 90s, the GNU Project had put together the whole system, except for the kernel.

The GNU Project had started a kernel, GNU Hurd, but developing it was harder than expected.

Thankfully, they didn't need to wait for the Hurd, because a kernel named Linux was freed in 1992, which fit into the last major gap in the GNU system. However, making them work together was not a trivial job.

Together, the system is named GNU/Linux.

Today, there are many different variants of GNU/Linux.

#JeuxVidéo : Stupidité en streaming … « Si hier, on a pu voir ce que donnait #Google #Stadia avec une latence réseau asthmatique, voici aujourd’hui une idée de la #consommation de #données. Sur Red Dead Redemption 2, en 1080p et 60 ips, le service de streaming pompe en moyenne 119 Mo chaque minute (sur un test de 13 minutes). Ramené sur une heure, cela donne environ 7,14 Go. Soit un débit d’environ 16 Mbit/s. » sur tomshardware.fr/google-stadia-

Ogni utente di #Google, #Facebook, #Twitter, #Instagram, #TikTok... dovrebbe assolutamente guardare #TheSocialDilemma

Fa capire alle persone come questi servizi siano progettati con l'obiettivo finale di aumentare sempre più il tempo di permanenza del vostro cervello sui social e poi venderlo al prezzo più alto.

Da mostrare ai ragazzini, e da mostrare agli amici!

Every user of Google, Facebook, ... should absolutely watch #TheSocialDilemma

It makes people understand how those services are designed with the ultimate goal to sell your brain time at the highest price.

Show it to Children, show it to Friends!

Pretty good explanation why wearing masks & keeping distance are a good thing.

Same thing applies to computer/internet security, btw.

What is your principle Fediverse stream?

How do you follow / use The Fediverse / Mastodon?

Boosts appreciated.

Hey y'all.

There's now enough patrons to cover storage rent, so not only is my storage safe for this month but apparently even for the future.

This puts me at a bit of a loss for words – asking for help *and actually getting it* is not something that I am used to and I almost ended up not asking at all.

Even if I lack the socialization to properly express this, I am grateful for every boost, donation and nice word I've gotten – tho it'll take me a while to reconcile this with reality. 😅
