When a 15-year old addresses the world leaders like a bunch of children... and rightfully so! This is so humbling 😯

MobiliZon: the new Framasoft project designed to create platforms for managing communities and events (libre alternative to Meetups and Facebook groups) - joinmobilizon.org/en/


It took a while but here my intro.
My name is Chris and work as data analyst/visualization and I am into music
And I feel that in a few years time the world will see the fediverse as the standard way to organise social networks and all.
First I opened an account at mastadon.social but afterwards I realized that the true strength of the federation is shown in having a personal Mastodon instance and I set up mastodon.chrisbol.nl/

In light of the FusionTables shut-down announcement yesterday we need to think about the durability and sustainability of online data journalism -- especially the interactive pieces.

The Guardian "warlogs" interactive from 2010 is 404ing and embedded FusionTables are already down theguardian.com/warlogs

The "dark age of data journalism" seems to be here already vox.com/2015/11/9/9623002/data

I'm wondering if I made the wrong thing with #Pterotype, and I'd love some feedback.

The problem I was trying to solve was how to put WordPress content on the Fediverse, but more generally I want to put all sorts of content on the Fediverse.

I'm starting to feel like the best way to achieve that would be by making a generic #ActivityPub client & server implementation, rather than a WordPress-specific server. Then the WordPress plugin could just be a client to the server implementation.

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.

Events
Groups/Forums
Privacy groups
File management
Photo Albums
WebDAV access
and more...

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

RT @frabcus@twitter.com: Nice to see France taking back control of its Government communications - they're rolling out the open source, federated chat solution @matrixdotorg@twitter.com for messaging across all departments. Would love to see UK government take this approach to information security and privacy too.

#introduction

I did have accounts on the usual suspects of social media, but always very passive. Just joined Mastodon and it feels good. Even good enough for me to start sharing my thoughts.

I spent my time making good stuff better. Especially when this involves subjects like humans, data, visuals, electronics, ethics and privacy.

You can find me hanging around in the big cities of Holland, in the forest (with or without my MTB), at festivals and driving my cabrio on Europe's scenic roads.

#introductions

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.
