Some practical tips on how to keep up appearances at work when you're suffering from a bout of serious , written by a fellow survivor in answer to a request for advice from another survivor:

I notice you've started published code implementing aspects of in :

There are a couple of other federation servers written in Go, including . I'm just wondering if it would be possible to re-use some of their code to implement ActivityPub, so you can move on to writing the code specific to fediQuest?

More examples of profoundly illiberal policies now accepted in some quarters as "" or ""; knee-jerk Russphobia as a defence of the supposed "democracy" of an increasingly imperial USA whose limited democratic mechanisms have been under internal attack since the (or earlier). Forcing people to have vaccinations, without their full informed consent (or their caregivers'), by threatening withdrawal of access to public resources like schools

Hello, I’m the reel2bits project main developper (a #FOSS self-hostable #soundcloud like with #ActivityPub federation).

It’s written in python/flask/vuejs and I need help because of health issues I’m unable to work a lot on it anymore, if you are interested to help me on some of the issues and more specially the ActivityPub part, you can contact me through:

the project matrix channel the issue tracker this account

boosts appreciated, thanks.

I have to begrudgingly respect the genius of the PR offensives that convinced a whole generation of young activists to accept a whole suite of profoundly illiberal policies as "" or ""; hating on and pornography as "anti-feminist", hating on solidarity as "anti-semitic", criticism of or the same, supporting enclosing as "IP" as a supposed defence against "", etc, etc

♲ To clarify, Funkwhale currently federates only with itself (using ActivityPub, the same protocol that powers fediverse), and mainly to exchange music between pods and users.

However, this is going to change with the next release, as we'll support subscring to artists/podcasts from other fedi software, such as Mastodon.

If anyone has any ideas on how to stop the Israeli state imprisoning, torturing, and killing innocent Palestinian civilians, bulldozing their homes, and militarizing their communities, ideas that you think are better than BDS, I'm more than happy to hear them and consider changing my position. By blocking me for raising it, @emacsen implicitly admits that he can't offer any better solutions and that his anti-BDS position is untenable, but he just doesn't have the moral courage to say so openly.

It's also a minor nuisance because I'm trying to extract info about fediverse from this thread, which said user started.

Now I have to visit that page in a new browser tab, and I can't share any relevant info with the OP. *shrug* their loss.

Wow. I just got blocked by a US Jew because I support (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions), a campaign against Israel's open-air-prison treatment of the Palestinian people in the West Bank and Gaza, using similar strategy to that which brought down the similar regime in South Africa:

To me, this is like a US German in the 1940s blackballing me for supporting sanctions against Germany for it's treatment of Jews. It's hypocritical in the extreme.

The illogic of the "paradox of tolerance" argument is mindblowing. If we are not prepared to tolerate the intolerant, then we are fundamentally incapable of defending a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, because we *are* the intolerant, we are the people a tolerant society needs defending against. Classic example, it is on the basis of the "paradox of tolerance" that so many atheists justify their islamophobia.

Bang on.

Sometimes it seems like about half of political discourse consists of making excuses for things humans do at scale, despite almost universally agreeing in private that we need to stop doing them. In this single phrase, Tool cuts through all of that, revealing just how deeply crazy it is when humans kill each other over territory and the resources it contains.

Do you want to help people find up-to-date information about apps that respect their ? The (Free Software Directory) is a project hosted by the that aims to do just that:

There is a constant need more volunteers to help add entries for software that's not listed yet ,and update the information for existing entries. I'm sure suggestions for how to automate aspects of the update process for new versions etc would be welcome too.

So an hour ago, I posted this, and ventured into Peertube. What followed is one of the most surreal experiences I have ever had in the internet. I now finally understand the concept of Fediverse. And the revelation doesn't just stop here. Since all these accounts follow a similar protocol, I can see my Peertube account in my Mastodon interface, and my Mastodon account in my Peertube interface. This is deeply existential as fuck.

We want to add a moderator who speaks Hindi to the team. Must uphold our code of conduct, must stick around on Mastodon, some monetary compensation is included.

Apply over DM or reply. Will try to get through the applications in the following days (I’m not home though)

@seven @msh what is it you folks don't like about and running web services using containers?
