GitLab open sourced push mirroring and added it core. This is a great win for #decentralization!!! You can now run your own canonical GitLab instance & easily mirror to GitHub for findability.

I gave a little talk about Mastodon and the #federation at Berlin #Ruby user group on Thursday.
Here are the slides for your entertainment

 
And the #federation is targeted by escort services ... :-( I have now blocked 4 accounts.

 
NPR included a piece this morning on leaving Facebook, pros and cons of large networks, etc.

I'm posting because it included a snippet about Mastodon. It's short, about 1/3 to 1/2 way through, but it was there.

I really really really wish Diaspora had user subject folders that could be created for saving/sorting posts and comments.
yep.....
come to think of it, that not only was, THAT IS, the single reason I preferred Friendica.
(thought I'd sorted out a possible Friendica server finally.... but alas, decided I wasn't comfortable enough with the podmin to start a jump process)

I have a question regarding moderation of the networks. I read an in depth article about someone who worked as a moderator for facebook. It's in Dutch but I'll link it anyway. It told about all the horrible content that is moderated by facebook. It's about how facebook treats their employees who see horrific videos I don't even want to describe to you. But some things should not be seen by anyone ever. Period.
I wonder how the federation deals with such things. I know podmins can block an individual user or a pod, is that correct?
But are there ways in which podmins communicate with each other about such things? To notify others of accounts/pods that try to spread horrible content?
I know many in the federation are heavily focused on free speech, but if I decide to host a pod in the future, I do not want to allow my members to be subjected to horrible things (if you don't like that, then don't register on my pod ;-) ). I think it would be very handy if peopl... show more

The Great Diaspora Treasure Hunt

Sometimes the stream is just dull and reshared. I have read some places were people discuss the endless reshares, and discusses how much quality contant this place needs to get going. But the truth is that resharing is like ants in the forest. They can be quite a nuisance, but they are a valuable part of the ecosystem as they help the federation of this place.

The Great Diaspora Treasure Hunt 1.1

With the influx of new people and new pods it is time for an updated version of The Great Diaspora Treasure Hunt Post

The treasure hunt is about resharing. Resharing can not of course, replace making new posts. But reshares are like ants in the forest. They can be quite a nuisance, but they are a valuable part of the ecosystem as they help the federation. If you are on a new pod there might not be so much federated material yet - because when a pod is opened it will slowly gather new things that are posted but not the old ones. When you reshare an old post with a person on a new pod it becomes visible to him or her.

The federation is a small community and have to do some work to make the community thrive. I have seen the same tendency in small communities in Green... show more

 
You know what I really like about this whole experience so far? I've been really practicing my French and German reading skills, and quite happy with how well I understand most of it! (Not practicing the writing skills yet, that's a bridge too far ;-) )

Can't help but notice that many newcomers to the #Federation from you-know-where seem confused by its distributed nature. Here's an idea for podmins/hubmins: foster community in your own front yard first. Let federation be just a bonus.

It's been a while since my last post on the subject, but here are some exciting news about #funkwhale: the #federation is actually usable now, as shown in the video below:

1. We follow another instance
2. We scan it's library
3. We import some tracks from it
4. We play those tracks from our own instance

You can't imagine how happy I am to see this actually working, after weeks working on the protocol/invisible stuff!

Re: The Fediverse Vs. Federation


Interesting Reading for anyone new to decentralized social networks. #fediverse #federation #friendica #diaspora #mastodon

 
There are a lot of questions lately. Questions that need answering. :-)

so just logging on and hearing that witches.town is shutting down. did the users of this instance get a say? this is the reason #federation is not enough and we need #distributed systems.

Hello,
I'll close my hub for new registrations. This instance is hosting 161 accounts with 220 channels at the moment. I've reached a point where it gets hard to maintain the speed of the server. Another reason is decentralization. A healthy federation needs a wide spread of accounts and channels over as much hubs as possible. Centralization isn't a good thing in a decentralized network. ;-)
Maybe I'll change my mind in the future. But until then you'll have to ask me if you really need an account on hub.libranet.de. Thank you for understanding.

Regards,
Steffen K9

@Qanno @balrogboogie @Gargron

Indeed I like Mastodon a lot.

I didn't have time to look at the sources or to study the #federation #protocol but I will sure give a look: as #distributed #system it might give me new ideas for my research os.

However, if I understood correctly (and I'm happy to be corrected) from a #privacy pow Mastodon is a little worse than twitter as you could collect toots from the local timelines of several instances and build pretty good models of their users. ...

Hubzilla 3.2.1 Bugfix Release!


Fixed issues:
  • Translations update
  • Fix obscure permission issue with custom permissions when using the highly discouraged advisory privacy modes. Thanks to Thorsten, Einer von Vielen and Phellmes for pointing that out.
  • Fix PHP warning in /admin/site
  • Update mysql schema
  • Fix double notifications for diaspora private messages
  • Fix diaspora v2 outbound profile messages missing key_id
  • Fix PHP error in phpmailer addon
This updates includes an important security fix. Please update as soon as possible!

If somebody at your hub is affected by the mentioned permission issue (which is not very likely) you will need to execute this query to fix eventual affected posts:

UPDATE item SET public_policy = ''<br></br> WHERE public_policy != ''<br></br> AND ( allow_cid != '' OR allow_gid != '' OR deny_cid != '' OR deny_gid != '')

Hubzilla 3.2 released


The Hubzilla 3.2 release cycle was mostly dedicated to performance and usability improvements. We have managed to significantly improve the performance of item table queries. This means that the network and channel streams and also the notification updates are loading significantly faster now. In fact the whole app feels snappier.

Aaaaand time for one of these again: #federation test 1, 2, 3. Finally switched #Socialhome to sending new #diaspora protocol entity property names for all entities.

federation v0.15.0

My #Python #federation library, used in #Socialhome and the relay system bumped to release 0.15.0 just now - https://github.com/jaywink/federation/releases/tag/v0.15.0

This is mostly stuff that has been added while implementing federation compatibility for Socialhome. This release introduces the share entity and some other additions, changes and fixes, but most importantly introduces the id attribute in all entities, in preparation for introducing #ActivityPub support.

The next release will be backwards incompatible since I aim to drop the #Diaspora handle and guid attributes and use id everywhere as the "object ID". For Diaspora protocol it will be in the format of a Diaspora URI (which contains handle and guid). For ActivityPub it will be the URL of the object.

If you are using or plan to use or are just interested in maybe using this library, would be fun to know and that would make sure I take your use case into account 👍

 
The amount of people looking just like Edward Snowden on the #Federation is too damn high!
