Buon Anno a tutti!
Happy New Year to all!
Bonne Année a tous le monde!

Going to play around a bit with the new mastodon instance I created and if all works well I'll make it my new home.
Just trying to consolidate a set of platform under one domain.
See you on:

I'm pulling my silk painting time lapse videos over from that one other video site, and putting them on Here's the first, painting a tree. Most folks don't know how silk painting works, so I like to do demos and videos about it.But I never do as many as I mean to...

Right now the fediverse is nipping at the heels of the silos.

They know we are here, and they perceive us as a threat. We know this from leaked emails from facebook.

That said, they could attack us in an oblique manner with any number of poisoned waterhole attacks.

Earlier today someone predicted one or more of those platforms just integrate activitypub and crush us by incorporating us.

Another pointed at the potential for procedurally generated instances that just harvest data, or overwhelm our ability to suspend all of the instances they throw up.

When these attacks are adapted to... they'll get concerned, and will try to frame us as part of "the dark web(tm)"...

That's how we'll know we're winning.

#Introduction Hi folks, I'm a researcher in the areas of media law and media governance, specifically looking into regulatory issues of mediated communication in a datafied society. I'm currently working on legal issues of AI-based communication and automated decision-making systems, (social) bot communication and the limitations of transparency/disclosure as a regulatory resource. Based in Hamburg, Germany. Looking forward to contributing outputs and insights.

Coming to #35C3? Find us in the Marina of Open Infrastucture Orbit - look for sails in the center of hall the assembly hall (2)!

At 11:00 the assemblies introduce themselves. 2 more Nextcloud talks
& workshop with #cryptoparty

Riflessione interessante sui (molti) mali e (pochi) vantaggi prodotti dall’uso dei social network. L’articolo merita, anche se si muove sull’asse “social sì o no”, senza considerare le potenzialità dei social decentrati, che costituiscono un’alternativa sicuramente più umana dei social commerciali, così grandi, gamificati, impersonali e strutturalmente alienanti

Let's make sure we don't over do it this Christmas he said... but then things got a bit out of hand.

Una mappa per esplorare il #fediverso, l'universo di reti federate e decentrate, un'alternativa ai servizi centralizzati dei giganti del web: Complimenti a @Ca_Gi per il suo bel lavoro di cartografo #softwarelibero #fediverse #Mastodon #PeerTube @maupao @paolo @steko

For those living in Luxemburg that cannot make it to there is the option of watching the live stream of several talks at Level2.

Dear #35c3: Two things!

1) I rented a flat in central Leipzig (0.5km from the the station). We have a spare room with a double bed, in case 1-2 somebodys are in need of a place to crash. DM for details.

2) The whole point of going to 35C3 is to meet people! So please feel free to find me and ask me about #Mailpile and #PageKite and #Autocrypt and #Iceland and making a living off #FOSS work.

Are you serious Facebook?? Full access to user data including messages? ‘Facebook doesn’t need to sell your data. It has been giving it away free for years.‘

my company (MNT) is looking for office/production space in berlin, around 50sqm. preferably kreuzberg or mitte. we’ll be working on open (libre) hardware and software with a team of three. if you hear sth, please write to 🙏
