New blog post: "Let a thousand bonfires bloom
Dopamine and attention manipulation are not inherent properties of a social network. They can be replaced by healthier behaviours and other ways of connecting humans and exploring collective intelligence..."
"Working towards a future where communities can assemble their own social networks like lego blocks, to cultivate safe and private spaces while being interconnected with the rest of the "fediverse" and the internet at wide on their own terms."
-- we've just updated our new bonfire homepage :)
We've just published a new blog post "Why are we building yet another (federated) todo list app?"
#valueflows #nlnet #project-coordination #forgefed
Where's the new #socialcg IRC room located and is there a good matrix bridge for it? Just realized with the freenode debacle it probably migrated.
Nice link with The mushroom at the end of the world, a fascinating investigation of how futures may be hacked from (or brought to) a collapse of the present, unplanned, on the margins
Our first blog post is out there 😃
We shared some thoughts about what guided us during the creation of our logo...
@bonfire will it be possible to use Bonfire as an API-only service? So i can build my own solution on top of it?
No matter what - that project sounds super exciting. Something i was planning to build but never had enough free time
Bonfire is a new project that aims to combine an open source hardware device with FOSS federated social networks to allow you to physically control your own data, and to operate offline too if you want. You can follow at:
The official website is at https://bonfire.cafe
(Bonfire was previously known as CommonsPub.)
@bonfire I love the name "Bonfire" - makes me think of Dark Souls, and the security bonfires provide. What was the source of the name?
CommonsPub and the quest for a modular decentralised app ecosystem https://conf.tube/videos/watch/d66cf9ea-e8bf-452e-bb36-e88a402e3da2
Just launched a first draft of our website with a little info about what we're cooking: https://bonfire.cafe
TL;DR: Bonfire will be:
1. a pre-configured device
2. a fediverse identity hosted service (which syncs between the fediverse and the device whenever it comes online)
3. apps (web apps but they run on the device instead of the cloud)
A federated social network for individuals and communities to design, operate and control their own digital lives.
Continuation of the @commonspub project
INDIEWEB.SOCIAL is an instance focused on the #Openeb, #Indieweb, #Fediverse, #Mastodon #Selfsovereign #identity (#SSI), #Humanetech and #Calm technologies evolution.
