Today I'm taking part in the 'Public Spaces' conference, organized by a coalition of public institutions in the Netherlands that wants to shift to a more publicly owned and minded internet infrastructure ecosystem.

I'm primarily there to listen. I'm quite curious what questions and needs public institutions might have regarding their IT and what moves they are willing to make.

However, I will also make a case for and as important 'building blocks' of such an ecosystem during another session.

This coalition is ambitious and there are pitfalls here and there, but all in all, I think it is a really important opportunity to for example shift procurement priorities etc.

Both events are in Dutch, but I believe other parts of the conference are English.

The work session focuses on mailing lists, both technically and as a communication vehicle in our grassroots tech communities; how to install and migrate between an old and a new server, but also how we interact, do skill-sharing and assign technical tasks. (...) This workshop is co-hosted with @mara. Ξ™t is an online collaboration between Athens and Rotterdam.

Just to reiterate in relation to Gab getting hacked, I’m not aware of any vulnerabilities in Mastodon at the moment and based on what I have seen in their code modifications the vulnerabilities they have are the ones they themselves introduced (along with never porting security patches from us)

@Gargron can you confirm that whatever made gab vulnerable to SQL injections was indeed part of the customization they did themselves and is not part of the mastodon code they have forked?

I've had a oneplus 2 since 2015. Immediately flashed lineage OS without Gapps on it, which I have been using since. Surprised the battery still lasts a day despite heavy use. It is pretty dented and scratched but the screen is still intact, as I had a protective foil on the screen from the beginning. Aside from occasionally removing compacted dust in either of the cable ports I haven't had to do any repairs.
