I made a Venn diagram for the #Zappa project from @bonfire networks and you have the privilege of using your large brain to tell me why it's wrong (so I can improve it for v0.2)

#misinformation #disinformation #federation

The first draft of the report done by @dajbelshaw as guidelines for our extension has been published...
the mindmap is 💥 💥 💥

@dajbelshaw awesome how thoughtful you create that project!

A person who prominently talks about Fake News in germany is @kattascha. She even wrote a book about it!

I think it's only available in german:

Maybe you can talk to her.

Here is a report about Fake News and her book including 3 links to german NGOs fighting misinformation:

Maybe you have someone in the team who can read german?

Another call for people from under-represented groups on the Fediverse to volunteer an hour of their time to discuss mis/disinformation in federated social networks.

More details about the project here:

Ideally, we want to wrap up user interviews next week, so we can spend the two weeks after that doing analysis of results 😅

Boosts for reach encouraged!

Sitting with ambiguity
a great article by @dajbelshaw about avoiding dead metaphors and inviting us to stay with the trouble for a little bit more!

Heya! We would like to talk to people who have had to deal with mis/disinformation in federated environments within the past couple of years...
Get back to us or boost to reach more interested people :)

Cross posting the awesome article from @dajbelshaw , who are working with us to shape the user stories that will guide us building : an experimental extension to deal with misinformation on federated networks

Does your own or favourite FLOSS project have their own issue / PR label set that you like to share with us?

We are considering to offer more templates for Codeberg and are looking for inspiration from your or other well-known projects.

Awesome. Just spoke with @bernini and @mayel about #Zappa, "a custom @bonfire extension to empower communities with a dedicated tool to deal with the coronavirus "infodemic" and online misinformation in general."

I'm being tasked with creating user stories based on interviews and workshops.

If this sounds like something you (or someone you know) might be interested in contributing to, let us know!

Boosts appreciated for reach 🚀

#Gitea is joining the fediverse 🎉 We can now announce we've been accepted into the #NLnet funding round that we applied to.

Thank you to @NGIZero @dachary @forgefriends and so many others for getting us to this point.

We are very much looking forward to many wonderful things that federation within forges can support.

We are pleased to announce that Bonfire has been awarded a grant from the Culture of Solidarity Fund to support cross-border cultural initiatives of solidarity in times of uncertainty and "infodemic".

Calling anybody with experience with creating international multi-stakeholder cooperatives:

We're thinking about that form of org for which is now being worked on, used by, and implemented by groups in the US and several European nations as of now. Some Canadians were involved earlier and might return. People in other parts of North and South America and Africa have connected a bit.

So how do we do something like that?

What are the hurdles? Who are good advisors?

We've agreed to publish our weekly meeting notes on as a little step to improve our onboarding & dev experience

As most #Fediverse applications are #monolithic, I am very hyped for @bonfire bringing a reformation, and just now say that Beta is soon ready - maybe I can ditch investigating #Mastodon, #Pleroma and #Misskey and immediately move to it after all :)

We've started a thread on : How to improve bonfire development and onboarding experience
Any feedback, suggestion, good practice is *very* welcome !
