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

It took a while but here my intro.
My name is Chris and work as data analyst/visualization and I am into music #NewOrder #Pavement #Weaves #TrippieRedd
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 https://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 https://www.theguardian.com/warlogs
The "dark age of data journalism" seems to be here already https://www.vox.com/2015/11/9/9623002/data-journalism-archive
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.

Join the global social network!

Would love to see UK government take this approach to information security and privacy too.
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.

I've actually started writing up about Decentralized alternatives to mainstream sites.
I'm looking to help the community as much as I can and this post is the very first step: https://davidpeach.co.uk/2018/12/04/decentralized-alternatives/
Two-factor authentication improves the #security of your login to #nextcloud but it can be cumbersome to have to enter the second factor. Nextcloud's Roeland Douma developed a simple and secure alternative...
We will dive into what the fediverse is, how it works, who is on there, who made it, what it means to host communities and how and where on can contribute.
