I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.

This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.

I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.

@kev @stevenroose But now knowing that my very existence here and my pronoun preference makes the main admin “cringe”. It for sure makes me question the values that this community is built upon.

That is not me being a special snowflake, that is me hoping to find a community where I will not be ridiculed for just existing. Being able to share in my passion of coding without having people hate on me for the way that I dress and act.

UPSETTING SETTINGS - XPUB 2019 🥳🤖
12-13.07.2019 + + !
UBIK, S/ASH GA\\ERY in

Upsetting Settings presents graduation projects initiated by Alexander Roidl, Alice Strete, Angeliki Diakrousi, Joca van der Horst, Natasha Berting, and Zalán Szakács. The concept of this exhibition arises from the idea of the default setting, a situation in which a specific mode of interaction is selected automatically, pre-configured to work out of the box without the need to tinker with its underlying apparatus. Every system comes with default settings predefined by its creators, and most of the time, these settings remain unchanged by us, the users of such systems. These defaults do not represent our needs but are possibly the materialisation of biases from the system's makers, from corporate or political interests, from a society at large. The projects engage with the concept of default modes and propose interventions in their core structure/source/root so as to start thinking collectively about better places from which to begin. You are invited to become root users, active listeners, smart speakers, intentional eaters, counter trolls, sensorial spectators!

I think irc meetins are my favorite kind of meetings.

@SoniEx2 Yup, something like that. I recently published a blog post about this approach, giving one limited example using protocols that I know enough about to speak on: blog.datproject.org/2019/03/22

Oh wow. So that really famous centralized vs decentralized vs distributed diagram that I quote above? Well, in one of the companion papers, Baran provides this iteration on it, which in my opinion is far superior and I'm going to start using in my presentations.
