I've implemented a naive p2p system which can be both federated or fully decentralized, something in-between and maybe :

github.com/adzialocha/beep-bee

Added many comments in the source-code itself if you want to check it out.

The main ideas are:
* Not invent a new protocol but patch something together of great components
* Keypairs live in the clients, where messages get signed and then posted to the "home-server"
* Home servers are the actual nodes of the network, find each other and replicate data with each other
* All data is stored in append-only-logs of every managed key (github.com/AljoschaMeyer/bambo)
* Clients can be simple browser-based interfaces without any heavy crypto-crunching or file system access needs (which forces us to live in Electron etc.)
* .. still one could simply build a client which comes together with the Node itself

Happy to hear any comments/ideas or projects which already do something similar in this direction?

Thank you!! 🎈

Culinary documentation of the live streamed Fediverse talk I gave with @rra yesterday at

It obviously made the cooking process instantly more awesome :)

(thanks ushi! :1000: )

“Artist-researchers Roel Roscam Abbing (@rra) and Aymeric Mansoux (@320x200) likewise critique universal openness in their analysis of an emerging internet infrastructure created by and for users: the #Fediverse.”

@liaizon @feld @grainloom @clacke @xj9 @anna @320x200 I have this setup on blob.cat - it wasn't necessarily easy to do (because the guides for it aren't written well), https://coffee-and-dreams.uk/tutorials/2020/01/04/mongooseim-with-pleroma.html helped me

On-boarding folks to the fediverse this week with @rra, @320x200 and @lidia_p and need instance recommendations.

Next week during @liaizon @lidia_p @320x200 and me are hosting a few workshops to introduce people to the fediverse.

"Welcome to the Federation" is a workshop and Q&A session for people new to or already part of the . We will cover concepts such as the server-client model; on-line federation; discussions of different servers and communities; and last but not least allow those new to the idea to sign up on the Fediverse. The workshops also deal with how to run or join a Fediverse community, the challenges of federated social networking, and the wider impact the Fediverse has on free software production and its culture. The workshops are meant to be informal and semi-structured to allow for different levels of engagement and experience from the participants, but will nonetheless offer a high level of understanding."

I like, just out of my mind:

- Calibre
- Zotero
- beet
- youtube-dl
- firefox (i love the screenshot feature)

what's yours?

A couple of months ago I tooted looking for a vector grid-based editor. Nothing came up so we (Manufactura Independente) set out to make one.

It still has a set of kinks, but it's usable to the point that we've been using it to make a few designs.

We plan to release it in Feb/Mar under a free software copyleft license (AGPL). It runs on the browser with no server-side logic and no tracking.

If you'd like to try the beta and tell us about your experience, that'd be fab! Just reply to this toot and we'll get in touch.

This weekend Varia is hosting two gatherings that are both the start of a series:

Feminist Hack Meetings (on Saturday)

An informal first gathering of a series of research meetings that aim to explore the suggestions, urgencies and potentials of feminist hack & tech initiatives.

Come and make yourself comfortable, read the books you never find time to read, browse/exchange/acquire parts from our electronics depot or use the quietness of the day to repair things that need fixing.
