Remember how I always say make sure you audit your third-party JavaScript you embed in your apps, especially in your login pages? Classic example right here, someone inserted malware into the @Twilio SDK because it was in a publicly writable S3 bucket. 😱 https://www.twilio.com/blog/incident-report-taskrouter-js-sdk-july-2020

How can we tell whether information online is real or fake? Can we trust what we see on social media? How is technology designed to keep us hooked? The Glass Room: #Misinformation is now available in English, with more languages coming soon! theglassroom.org/misinformatio #TheGlassRoom

After GitHub put an archive of Mastodon code into arctic ice it got me thinking how dependent our rollout mechanism is on contemporary infrastructure like RubyGems and NPM. That bit us in the ass at least one time when a release of Mastodon became uninstallable because a package author removed a specific version of a package. At least our Docker images are entirely self-contained/pre-built.

Do we have a directory of Fediverse podcasters? Maybe we should start one? If there is not, add yourself here:

I'm excited to share that I'll be presenting at the ActivityPub Conference (conf.activitypub.rocks/#cfp) this October!

I'll be presenting my paper on moderating #decentralized #socialnetworks and how the #fediverse has isolated bad actors like #gab. It's fascinating how small, self-hosted, self-governed social networks have worked together to address problems that have haunted centralized platforms like Facebook and Twitter.

More details coming soon.
