I don't trust anyone with less than 5 accounts on different #Federation instances.

What it takes is #federation. (To quote my other toot:)

There have been some attempts at cooperative, non-profit and/or open-source ridesharing apps (notably in Austin), and some might still be operating. You are right that their challenge is the networks of drivers and riders. There's a trump card that we could play which would actually turn that into a strength against the competitive/for-profit/proprietary apps: #federation! If all the alternatives (globally) federate with each other using something like ActivityPub, small groups in each town could #selforganise to run driver collectives (teaming up to source/maintaining vehicles, insurance, healthcare benefits, etc), and devs could create any number of independent apps to innovate with better feature and UX - and every app would give you access to every driver or rider in the network!

In case you missed it, you can follow people across the Fediverse even if you're using a different kind of site.

For example, here's a PixelFed account:

@earth

...here's a PeerTube account...

@documentaries

...here's a WriteFreely account...

@carbontwelve

...here's a Plume account...

@PlumeDev

...here's a Friendica account...

@hypolite

...and you can follow all of them from Mastodon.

Meinung | Diaspora: Wenn die Federation Dich narrt


Eben hatte ich wieder so ein kurzes Erlebnis das mich am Konzept der Federation (nicht der Dezentralität an sich) zweifeln lässt. Wir hatten ein paar Kommentare zu einem Islieb-Beitrag:

Image/Photo

Dabei nahm @[D*] Frank Dapor #podmin Bezug auf den Beitrag eines 'Frank Lehman' der sich hinterher als @Maurice LéDuck herausstellte. Problem dabei war nur das mir der 'Eggsperde' einmal als 'Maurice LéDuck' und einmal als 'Frank Lehmann' angezeigt wurde. Aufgeklärt hat sich das erst als ich mit dem Zeiger über den entsprechenden Userlink gefahren bin und die Nähere Informationen bekam.







Sorry wenn ich das schreib, dass ist in meinen Augen einfach nur verwirrend. Und wenn mir als jemand der schon seit Jahren auf Diaspora herumfährt so geht, frage ich mich wie es für Neulinge ist.

Part of the #Federation idea is also #decentralisation, which means that it would be best not to use always the large instances e.g. for #Mastodon, but also smaller ones.
Here’s an invite code:

Anyone else here from /r/linux?


Hi, first post. I'm loving the idea of a federated Reddit alternative, and of having multiple groups in a chat.

Definitive new features sound like the kind of thing that could actually get people moving, since privacy and avoiding a surveillance state clearly aren't on most folks' to-do list.

Will there be any benefits to ActivityPub being used here? Will crossover from Mastodon to Prism?

just discovered #GhostCMS and the discussions about #ActivityPub—sounds exciting!

I'm on #Medium, but looking for alternate platforms to run my publication, preferably ones that federate. Feature-wise, Ghost looks like what I'm looking for minus the #federation 👻

I don't know much Node or ActivityPub, but I'd be happy to try helping—perhaps I could be more useful on the ideas end. (I understand this is still in the way-in-the-future stage, but who cares 😜)


 
A year ago, the only person who knew the name of the project besides @dansup was @yabirgb the @anfora developer.

Some might see us as competitors, we see it differently.

Together Anfora and Pixelfed are working to build fediverse features like Federated Filters, Live Streaming and Stories.

It's better when you work together.

Open source software projects are hosted on many different online platforms and places like Savannah, GitLab, GitHub, SourceForge, etc.. If you like to develop, fix things or raise a issue than you probably got to have lots of different accounts for those platforms to raise a issue or put in a merge request for different software. Well I don’t like that, especially if that requires a account with a company that I don

Thank you to everyone who supported the project and spread the word.

I think 2019 will be the year of next generation fediverse projects like Anfora, Funkwhale, Go-Fed, PeerTube, Pixelfed, Plume, Prismo, Pterotype and WriteFreely. #activityPub #fediverse #federation


 
Check out what’s on PeerTube’s 2019 Roadmap
The PeerTube project has made some huge strides since its initial inception in 2018, ramping up from a 0.0.1 Alpha release last January to a 1.0 stable release in December, the project has been great at managing its roadmap, and has updated it to reflect their 2019 plans. Here’s our takeaway of some of the more impressive features coming in.

It does prove the usefulness of #federation that through all the #Matrix outage, my account was not affected at all. Most of the people I chat to are on other servers than the one affected.

To All Who are #NewHere

Welcome!


Besides all the other very helpful stuff that people post here about the #Federation and the #Fediverse, we still see a lot of new people appear, post their #newhere message, and then we never see them again. To help with that, I wanted to offer this little bit of information.
Diaspora takes time to become what you want it it to be.

This is because #Diaspora will not suggest “people you may know” or “stuff you might be interested in.” There’s no data-mining or tracking or spying on you to find out what to “suggest” to you. You build your own here, and tha... show more

#RandomLocation: Ein Sparziergang in Oerlinghausen mit Odyssee


So, ich wollte ja eigentlich wöchentlich diesen Content hochladen, aber ich habe wohl den Aufwand unterschätzt.
Vielleicht stellt sich aber mittelfristig auch Routine ein oder Übung oder so.

In diesem Fall bin ich einfach auf eine Menge Probleme gestoßen, ich bin in ein Waldstück gefahren und habe das größtenteils filmisch dokumentiert und ich habe ein paar Fotos geschossen und dann habe ich auch noch eine Tonaufnahme von den Waldgeräuschen gemacht.
Soweit so gut, aber als ich dann daheim war begannen die Probleme: Die Video-Daten waren alle zusammen etwa 10GB groß, was viele der Schritte stark verlangsamte.

Von der Individualisierung über die Schwarmintelligenz zur Schwarmdummheit


Wenn man zur Griesgrämigkeit neigt, könnte man fragen, warum man den 30. Geburtstag dieses World Wide Webs eigentlich groß feiern soll, bei so vielen negativen Folgen, wie es mittlerweile hat. Aber man muss ja nicht zur Griesgrämigkeit neigen.

In den 90ern wurde das Web zunächst vor allem gefeiert als Triumph über zentral gesteuerte Broadcasting-Medien. Kommunikation zwischen Menschen auf Augenhöhe, so glaubte man in Web-Evangelistenkreisen (zu denen ich ebenfalls gehörte), würde auch gesellschaftliche Folgen haben - Zerfall alter Autoritäten und Machtstrukturen, Ersetzung von Topdown-Strukturen in Wirtschaft und Politik durch neue Bottomup-Strukturen, und Aufweichung festgefahrener Weltbilder aufgrund von diffuserem Meinungs-Input.

Zwar trat einiges davon tatsächlich in gewissem Umfang ein. Doch längst nicht in dem Umfang wie erhöfft. Stattdessen entwickelte sich im Web in den Nuller Jahren ein neues Phänomen, das wir anfangs nicht so auf dem Schirm hatten. Je mehr Menschen ins Netz strömten,... show more

For those who are #newhere from other social networks, here’s a bit of handy vocabulary to help you navigate this new social network universe:

- Protocol - An agreed format that enables software applications to communicate with (or “federate” with) each other. The two most heavily used protocols around here are Diaspora and ActivityPub. As an end user, you don’t have to care about the protocol you are using and you don’t ever see the “protocol” other than it enables or limits which users you can see.

- Platform - The software application that implements a protocol(s) for federating. The Diaspora platform implements the eponymously named Diaspora protocol. Mastodon, for example, implements the ActivityPub protocol. Friendica implements both the Diaspora and the ActivityPub protocols.

- Pod - The server(s) running a particular platform (software application). Also known as an “instance... show more
