Totally in the mood for some relaxing sound, by somebody who is walking the walk with heart and soul πŸ’“

Membership of #Feneas (Federated Networks Association) is 1 Euro per month, which works out as about US$13 per year, (or NZ$20). I'm going to join, and if you are a software creator or activist working towards federated replacements for any centralized digital technologies, I encourage you to consider doing the same:

Finally, the fediverse icon mosaic is finished - and I love the result :blobheartcat:

September Annual General Meeting

As per the rules of the Federated Networks Association ry, we invite members to our second Annual General Meeting of 2019. Due to waiting for the Finnish Patent and Registration Office to clear an exemption for our committee role shifts, this meeting is a bit late of schedule. Still, welcome to discuss and have a say on things related to #Feneas. The meeting agenda is underneath.
Note! Anyone is welcome to join the meeting. Only Feneas members however have voting rights for decisions made.

Just watched a recording of a talk on #solid, a set of standards for decentralized #socialweb. Anybody here who knows both #solid and #activitypub and would be willing to explain the differences, pros and cons of each approach?

I'm also thinking of adding a comment section to my blog (I've got a domain migration planned, afterwards I'd like to add more content and maybe features). I was thinking of looking at #webmention and #indieweb.
How do those technologies fit into the picture?

@forgefed Hi ForgeFed team!

A few folks and I are also getting our hands into this field, and we realized we should not do repetitive work in parellel, especially not *two* specs or protocols. I'm really curious about your work, and how you got ActivityPub, a social network-oriented protocol, to suit your needs.

The next FOSDEM will take place on 1-2 February 2020 at our usual venue, UniversitΓ© Libre de Bruxelles (thanks ULB!).

See for venue location and other useful information. The site will be updated further in the coming months.

Matrix Telegram bridge

We're now hosting a bridge between our #Matrixserver and #Telegram.
While due to the way the bridging works, some advanced functionality like read receipts and typing notifications is only available for users on the #Feneashomeserver, most of the functionality is available to any Matrix user in the wide network. By hosting a public bridge we hope to help a bit with the weight #t2botis currently pulling.
