Festive Flaxy O’Hare by @lightone
9 years ago, on July 1st 2010, Mike MacGirvin committed his initial work on what would become Friendica.

Since it has gone through many changes, PHP version, maintainers, name even, but it is still alive and kicking and ready for its tenth years running.

Here’s to another great year for Friendica!

#COI - #Chat Over #IMAP - is a universal chat protocol that is #Free, #Open, Easy, #Safe and does not require #developers to build or maintain a server.
COI uses an #email address and any IMAP server as its infrastructure. This means it can already connect 3.8 billion users - anyone with an email address.

Privacy is not a science, it is a human right

My response to a dangerous turd of an article by Bart van der Sloot (co-founder of Amsterdam Privacy Week – sponsored by Palantir and Google – and docent teaching “Privacy and Big Data” at Tilburg University)

Mr. Sloot attempts to reframe privacy as a “science” and shame those who work to protect it for having a “pro-privacy agenda” & not being “neutral”. He also calls for “new rules” to disallow such biased behaviour.

I just want to thank all of the creators and maintainers of free software that I can use for free! I appreciate your hard work!

Instagram ranked worst for young people’s mental health [0].

I am very aware of the toxic side of IG and look forward to establishing Pixelfed Labs [1]. The goal is to get the community involved in solving these tough issues through discussions, proposals and implementations.

We can build better alternatives if we work together!
