@0x1C3B00DA I've just been learning more about #Feneas (Federated Network Association) today. I really like the vision by @cj to use #ActivityPub to create a federated protocol forge for specifying AP extensions. It's a genius solution, and a brilliant example of #dogfooding to boot ;)
I'll be at #FOSDEM. I'm interested in go-fed (AP in #golang) and getting folks writing #ActivityPub extensions into decentralized but federating spec-owning authorities. Who wants to meet up at FOSDEM? I would like to make sure to block out specific times to meet with folks to have these sorts of discussions.
Doesn't have to be 1:1 discussions either.
Let it be known that today I finally got the go-fed-tool to not just generate #ActivityStreams, but any extension that builds on ActivityStreams, and recursively on top of extensions.
Last major things to do before I work on the "pub" side of go-fed/activity:
- Resolver, PredicateResolver
- Managing `context` strings
- Migrate unit tests to new code generated stuff
non-programmers are an important part of open source projects. non-programmer contributions are valid and useful and not second tier or otherwise less valuable.
it's easy to say programmers are the only value-add when you're fortunate enough to have enough non-programmers that you can take them for granted.
if you take away the feature requests, translations, and general chatter - many OSS projects would have never been more than flawed, narrow use case tech demos.
Es ist mal wieder eine Passwort-Sammlung mit Millionen von Konten aufgetaucht. Um sich davor zu schützen empfiehlt Troy Hunt unter anderem den Passwort-Manager 1Password. Diese Empfehlung würde ich niemals geben. Ihr braucht kein Abo-Modell, bei dem eure Passwörter in einer Cloud von proprietären Apps / Programmen gespeichert werden. 🤦♂️
Ihr braucht eine lokale Passwort-Datenbank und quelloffene, transparente Passwort-Manager wie KeePassXC: https://keepassxc.org/
“I’m against surveillance capitalism but Google’s service is listed first on my app because it is so popular” is the “I’m against the tobacco industry but I offer anyone coming into my home a cigarette because smoking’s so popular” of tech.
If you offer people easy access to cigarettes without so much as a warning about the risks, you might want to reconsider whether you really are against Big Tobacco or whether you’re doing their bidding.
FOSDEM is a conference entirely made by volunteers. While a small crew works on it year-round, most of the work during the conference is done by a large, enthusiastic group of great people who donate their time to make FOSDEM happen: you! https://volunteers.fosdem.org/
@jalcine Thanks for joining! :D We're hoping to do good things this year.
Make sure to join our chat also, #feneas:feneas.org on #Matrix or #feneas on FreeNode (bridged together). More and more people from all around hanging there as days go by, hoping to make it a generic place for #federated web discussion cross projects and platforms.
I'm going to work full-time on free software
"What's on your mind?"
Me, thinking: Death, legacy, how to live a good life, the pursuit of happiness, what do I want out of life, am I a good person, do I really understand love, am I wasting my time, what am I missing out on, will I ever feel grown up, what does success mean, what have I done with my life, can I survive on my own, would I want to, what if this is my last day, why can't I express myself adequately, does any of it matter, …
Me: "Not much. You?"
