#Gitea is joining the fediverse 🎉 We can now announce we've been accepted into the #NLnet funding round that we applied to. https://nlnet.nl/project/Gitea/

Thank you to @NGIZero @dachary @forgefriends and so many others for getting us to this point.

We are very much looking forward to many wonderful things that federation within forges can support.

Snikket is a project to make XMPP/Jabber decentralised instant messaging much easier to use. You can follow at:

➡️ @snikket_im

The website is at https://snikket.org

Snikket is releasing Android and iOS apps, and server hosting software, all with a consistent look, feel and branding.

The aim is to make XMPP easy enough for ordinary users, the same way Mastodon did with ActivityPub.

Short form directed at XMPP-related project maintainers (past, present, futur). How would you like it if there was an XMPP-related code forge?

framaforms.org/xmpp-code-forge

Votes are "anonymous" (no names), results are public. Thanks to all who take the time!

Personally I'd love to have federation but it's not exactly a thing yet, is it?
Surely it won't be in github.com/gitlab.com any time soon.

We documented how to use @dino in Tails.

#Dino is being considered as an option to replace Pidgin in Tails.

Please report your findings!

Today in , `adduser` instead of `useradd` as a subcommand of a project I appreciate.

For you who didn't know, `adduser` isn't packaged alongside `useradd` in the shadow package. The main repository seems to be on salsa.debian.org like many Debian tools. However helpful it may be.

Climate Anxiety Is an Overwhelmingly White Phenomenon by Sarah Jaquette Ray

'The prospect of an unlivable future has always shaped the emotional terrain for Black and brown people, whether that terrain is racism or change. Climate change compounds existing structures of injustice, and those structures exacerbate climate change. Exhaustion, anger, hope—the effects of oppression and resistance are not unique to this climate moment. What *is* unique is that people who had been insulated from oppression are now waking up to the prospect of their own unlivable future.'

Reputation-based federation

Instances you're closer to (interact with more) have higher reputation. Instances with users that your users thumb down/block a lot have lower reputation. Instances that are blocked by your high-rep instances have v low reputation.

Once a low threshold is hit, admin is asked if they want to mute/defed from the low rep instance.

Reputation isn't global, you can't measure the 'overall' rep of an instance, it's all relative to the instance you're looking from.

Thoughts?

1. New VC-backed startup enters the scene
2. People flock to it
3. They discover it’s a surveillance capitalist (and still have no clue what that is)
4. They’re shocked (because, see 3)
5. It’s too late, they’re too big and they’ve exited
6. Goto 1

🤷‍♂️

Cette démission est inquiétante. À sa création, la CNIL devait être un contre-pouvoir aux tentations sécuritaires de l'État dont elle est aujourd'hui l'architecte. Une question se pose alors : à quoi sert encore la CNIL ?

@vdr Bonjour, #Signal a été débordé par les demandes d'inscriptions avec pour conséquence des problèmes de SMS. #Signal est un logiciel libre avec du chiffrement fort mais il est aussi totalement centralisé…
À la place vous pouvez essayer XMPP (chat, chiffrement, salons, audio, video, etc.) : https://www.chapril.org/XMPP

Macron arrivera-t-il à faire adopter par le Parlement européen les parties de sa loi Avia censurées cet été par le Conseil constit. ?

Ce sera à la commission LIBE de trancher lundi prochain, en rejetant le règlement « anti-terroriste »

Ce règlement, exactement comme la loi Avia, exigera que n'importe quel hébergeur Web supprime en 1h n'importe quelle image, vidéo ou texte signalé par la police (sans le contrôle préalable d'un juge) comme relevant du terrorisme

The latest #WhatsApp news is part of a general trend where companies erode their own privacy policies over time. It is rare that you will ever see a privacy policy update that adds clauses in its users' favour.

These companies need more data to thrive and grow. It's how they work, it's their DNA.

I believe that only communication platforms with no central ownership can be trusted. That's why I'm working hard on @snikket_im. I already migrated my family to it, and it's going great!
