Do you want to publish long form texts on the Fediverse?

You might want to try @writefreely, a writing platform which focuses entirely on the text and has a minimalist interface to reduce distractions. More info at:

➡️ https://writefreely.org

...and servers to join at:

➡️ https://writefreely.org/instances

Because it's part of the Fediverse, you can follow Write Freely accounts from Mastodon.

You can also set up your own server to create your own blogging community.

With Twitter's collapse, funders should start helping build up federated discourse: supporting development of better security, of moderation aids, of proposals for affordances welcoming to Black Twitter and other communities. Stop thinking top down. Start thinking emergent.
Stop thinking about how to help newspapers. Start thinking about how to help communities and culture speaking for themselves. This is a place to start.

@jeffjarvis Totally agree. Also public funders (I'm from Europe).
But I don't think it has to be a choice between top down vs community driven and emergent. is a great case where the mission-driven approach, proposed by Mazzucato, could be deployed. Mission is a shared vision with clear and shared goals, but which can be achieve through a broad range of varied, not necessarily coordinated action.

The shared vision bit is crucial. Especially that we are already seeing strong disagreements on core functionalities and features of the ecosystem. Hopefully some funder will also fund citizen panels and other forms of participatory governance.

This is a really solid piece from @themarkup about the :
https://themarkup.org/the-breakdown/2022/11/21/we-joined-mastodon-heres-what-we-learned-about-privacy-and-security

Yes, this write-up focuses on Mastodon, but at least makes it clear that it's a part of a larger network. 👍

I am liking how the reporting about fedi seemingly shifted over the last few weeks from "OMG Tw*tter Killer" and interviews with Eugen, to something more substantial and useful. :blobcat:

@opensourcegardens@chaos.social

Dear : We are looking for a good solution to collaboratively create and maintain a of technologies for from to .

the solution should

  • offer public visibility (via html)
  • be easily editable (with or w/o account)
  • have a version history
  • be low tech
  • hosted by other good people
  • open source (of course)

extras for some style features, data fields and federation

tips welcome, boosts as well.

If you see a surveillance capitalist affiliation proudly displayed on someone’s profile here on the fediverse, ask “are you proud to work for them and why?” “Do you realise this space exists in reaction to the toxic, exploitative, and extractive spaces created by surveillance capitalists like your employer?”

@RoseCityAntifa@kolektiva.social

We joined Kolektiva almost a year ago because we firmly believe in a social media space that is radically different than facebook, twitter, instagram, etc.

We deserve a space that is ours; where booting nazis and adhering to our values is a given - not a desperate plea to moderators on corporate platforms.

We are grateful to the folks who have made Kolektiva a reality and we are glad to be here. Expect us to be more active on the going forward!

@auschwitzmuseum@mastodon.world

We created the account at Mastodon only a week ago and this community here grown to over 32,000.

Thank you for welcoming us here, thank you for all boosts, comments, advice, support and your engagement.

We are still learning and try to find our specific language on this platform. Your feedback is much appreciated.

Remember with us and amplify our voice.

In response to never ending discussions on whether should have end-to-end encrypted direct messages, I decided to write this quick guide on how to use them right now:

  1. Go to your contact’s profile page, check if they publish their OpenPGP fingerprint.[^]1
  2. Run gpg --receive-keys 6F7B6BB9A9B632555E1A03C132AF1F39C4EE03F2
  3. Encrypt your message```

    echo dupa | gpg --armor --encrypt -r 6F7B6BB9A9B632555E1A03C132AF1F39C4EE03F2 -----BEGIN PGP MESSAGE-----

    
    

hF4D37SlJYHQ+b8SAQdAzj1HNIybwQCftcqIGwW7NvEuJ+Wfi/8svUtsBwBeTzow 28GVqJTvWu7KkG1BXgMJrpaIDUHYyELuLlPCk9pqUT6BhlSVrI9MEPc4v8WvSTW5 0mMBy4cBmjZILMM6rVDtz9aVZoBnyZpTwUZSvBw1U2f1kFjeAYbLPzIqhMW6/TX7 Pf7q3MdUcy6tMYYWgALQVDSOGL4CnLrOiKN2uD8740//uWFzm3tj709VbnWqwGyf Pi3wIMI= =voP6 —–END PGP MESSAGE—–

4.  Send the output message with delimiters in the direct message to the recipient - voilà!

That will work, if you _really_ want to send E2EE through Fediverse. Seriously, I don't think having E2EE as a feature to either the standard or specific instance implementations is the hill to die on for the following reasons:

* If <a class="hashtag" data-tag="mastodon" href="https://agora.echelon.pl/tag/mastodon">#Mastodon</a> has it, it can be only used between new enough Mastodon instances, until it's also added into your Pleromas, Friendicas, PeerTubes,  Plume, Writefreely... oh wait, how do you send direct message from Writefreely or Plume?
* Implementing E2EE is _very_ resource consuming, not only in terms of actual encryption code but especially in terms of key exchange and user interface. I've been watching XMPP and Matrix doing that, and... it's just hard.
* Therefore I'd personally prefer to use my Pleroma instance for semi-public writing, reading and discussion, while at any time having the option to switch to Matrix for actually private communications, just like Matrix relies on Jitsi for video conferencing, because Jitsi specialises in that.

Elon's take over of Twitter has set a lot of things into motion in the digital world :amaze:

Tumblr and now also Flickr are thinking about intergrating ActivityPub so it will be able to connect to the Fediverse! :fediverse:

A lot of lay offs in the mainstream social media but the Fediverse is only growing!

The world is waking up :blobcheerwitch: Social media can be fun but also privacy friendly at the same time, you got the proof now!❤️

No billioaires needed ✅

@4081 @stux I don't think any of these existing corpo-platforms , which have hundreds of millions of accounts, will ever open anything more than front-end or mobile apps etc. (as Telegram has done). That is, if they join it will be in the form of one big instance which in itself will be a negation of the main idea of federation i.e. .

@stux OK. Any project can implement and join the . But do you really think that federating with such as Tumblr or Flickr will be a step towards a privacy-friendly federation? Millions of their users will of course benefit from federation, but I don't expect these companies to change anything in their privacy policies. So by visiting their sites (through accounts with fediverse) they will collect data about us as they do so far.

Tumblr i Flickr z ?

To może być bardzo "ciekawe" spotkanie dwóch podejść: otwartego/opartego o dotacje i wolontariat
i
zamkniętego/opartego o reklamy i giełdę $

Napisałem spotkanie, bo nie chciałem użyć "zderzenie" ;)

Kto będzie miał przewagę🤔
A kto duże instancje "na sprzedaż"😎
