@cwebber Got your patreon email... So, you're going to make me learn Racket, huh? :D

Be the decentralized open source solar punk that you want to see in the world.

Installed Manyverse from FDroid. Sure, I'll experiment. Though I'll keep it installed even if I don't use it, because that way I can use FDroid to share the app with others if the net ever goes down for prolonged periods, so we can nucleate a little disaster-resilient social network. Phones have great batteries, can be easily solar-charged, and are portable to sync between distant networks to spread news and help.
I think that's pretty #Solarpunk.

So I have an announcement. I sent an email to my work saying that I wanted to be able to focus on my work on taking advancing the federated social web to the next level. Read: better security / abuse resistance, richer interactions, virtual worlds.

How will I be funded to do this? I don't know. I do know that the state of the political world scares me enough that I feel I have to do this. If you want to support me: patreon.com/cwebber

Wish me luck. More updates soon.

What if... And stay with me here... Instead of competing for plentiful resources we just helped one another to get the resources we needed to survive and take care of the planet that is the only place our species has a chance of living on?

For those who follow work from the @matrix team, I just setup up an unofficial mirror of the Matrix live youtube channel at @matrix

The most rebellious thing you can do under our current system is to be kind to others

Has anyone else been experiencing crashing every time you wake up your laptop? Its happening to me every day on both mac and linux.

So, who's building the generic ActivityPub server? The natural next step is obviously that I shouldn't need a mastodon account AND a pixelfed account AND a peertube account, etc. How do we harmonize to a single identity (if a person wants to, of course)?

I'm sorry... am I reading this correctly: Go (the programming language) determines the exportability of a struct based on _the capitalization of the name of the struct_???

Sometimes I think those are the only meaningful lyrics ever written

I think a fun thing would be a podcast hosted at an Onion Service! You'd need to do horrible things to obtain it. Probably the files are Ogg Vorbis too

I wouldn't mind a Firefox feature that defaulted new pages to muted, along with a whitelist. Does that exist?

Number 6 in the #DWeb series from #Mozilla comes to us from #Aragon

"With Aragon, developers can create new apps, such as voting mechanisms, that use smart contracts to leverage decentralized governance and allow peers to control resources like funds, membership, and code repos."
