Dear #fediverse and especially #foss and #activitypub tech enthusiasts amongst you ..

At #SocialHub we're preparing a great event in the form of two webinars and a workshop in April, for representatives of the European Commission.

The topics are #ActivityPub #Interoperability and #FediverseFutures within the EU.

Interest for the event came from EC itself, who via @NGIZero - funder of many great AP projects - approached SocialHub to organize.

You can help prepare and certainly join the Event!

As I recently mentioned on the forum, we’re currently dealing with a pretty big... micro.baer.works/as-i-recently

@tchambers

I still wish Opera would open source their old browser code (they had their own code base until they jumped over to Google's engine)

Imported Jolocom's Whitepaper about self-sovereign identity (SSI) to IPFS - if someone's interested. bafybeiewr3irin7fpi725jag4djwq

I ran across this: nomoregoogle.com

It’s crowd sources so I added Micro.blog and Mojeek.com to the appropriate categories because I was feeling crowdy. :-)

On a good day, put together a little self-care package you can pull out for bad days. Include a few things you know will help.

#FollowFriday / #FF recap of this week's recommended follows:

🌟 @lubuntu - Lightweight version of Ubuntu, runs well even on older computers

🌟 @rnadness - Painter, mixes traditional techniques with psychedelic style

🌟 @codeberg - Non-profit git hosting service for FOSS projects

🌟 @Matomo - Free open analytics software, can be self-hosted

🌟 @Krita & @kritafoundation & @Krita_artists - FOSS painting software

🌟 @monarobot - Artist focused on Mayan aesthetic, worked on anime series Onyx Equinox

Agreed:

"We have enough social media platforms, and they are all broken. Content moderation is bust at even moderate scale, and algorithmic amplification is broken at any scale. We need a reboot.

We need to double down on the ideas of Web 1.0, and the tools that make carving out your own place on the internet possible. Not more platforms luring you with that viral juice boost."

In essence, DHH is advocating for social actions vs. big platforms and I totally agree. And think the could benefit by building itself in this direction.

"Everything from everyone all the time is too much. It's unnatural and it's unhealthy. We weren't built to listen to hundreds if not thousands of people every day.

Tools that let individuals publish, but do not seek to amplify them or force them viral, give us that natural, human scale."
