Hi everybody!

The beta version of Salut à Toi (0.7.0b1) is out.

As a reminder, "Salut à Toi" is a libre, decentralized and ethical communication ecosystem. It offers numerous functionalities (instant messaging, end-to-end encryption, blogging, file sharing, events, forums, etc.) and works natively on desktop, mobile devices (Android), on the web, and as well without graphic interface (text interface and command line).

More details at https://www.goffi.org/b/Z5qFZaBekt6sxEQS5pZkWB/just-entered-beta-phase

Just got to share my love for mastodon and the fediverse in a lecture about decentralised social media today in Norway, Gjøvik. Pretty fun, and thanks to everyone who showed up to hear me talk.

Next one will be the 30th of april in Bergen city in Norway.

Centralized tech platforms are "handmaidens to authoritarianism"
- Carole Cadwalladr, who exposed the illegal facebook ads around #brexit

Too much power in the hands of just a few tech platforms threatens democracy! #decentralization

I have to confes that I am lost between #activitypub, #matrix, #xmpp etc, not to mention irc and all the proprietary platforms, before we dig into the specializations (text, video, audio etc) or the deeper #decentralization stuff like #dat and #ipfs

I think I could use an updated "internet for dummies" kind of review

Redoing my intro post after some advice from @utzer:

Hi folks, I decided to join Friendica since it sounded interesting & I believe redecentralizing the internet is the way forward. I'm also on Mastodon & Scuttlebutt. I creatively write & LOVE to talk about the social implications of technology. I look forward to seeing what's out here.

Decentralized Social Networks and Censorship

#Facebook shared a vision about a #privacy. We applaud the idea & goals, with some skepticism.

Meanwhile, it will still be a single platform owned and controlled by a single player - #decentralization is a better way to keep data under control of users.

Well, maybe. But they are by far not the only large corporation vacuuming up user data for all kinds of use & access by third parties. #selfhosting #decentralization & #federation are the solutions we advocate for! Keep your data under control.

Twitter macht sich immer mehr unmöglich: nachdem Julian Assange z. B. gekickt wurde, wird nun auch das @RepublikMagazin@twitter.com völlig haltlos gesperrt: alle zunehmend ab ins #Fediverse, am besten mit eigener #Mastodon-Instanz.

Centralization vs. Decentralization


Decentralization is one of, if not the most, discussed features of the crypto tech stack. In a decentralized system, no single body controls the system. We have most certainly not reached the era…

Tim Berners-Lee tells us his radical new #plan to upend the World Wide Web


source: https://www.fastcompany.com/90243936/exclusive-tim-berners-lee-tells-us-his-radical-new-plan-to-upend-the-world-wide-web
This week, Berners-Lee will launch #Inrupt, a startup that he has been building, in stealth mode, for the past nine months. Backed by Glasswing Ventures, its mission is to turbocharge a broader movement afoot, among developers around the world, to decentralize the web and take back power from the forces that have profited from centralizing it. In other words, it’s game on for Facebook, Google, Amazon. For years now, Berners-Lee and other internet activists have been dreaming of a digital utopia where individuals control their own data and the internet rema
