- The Conservancy is hiring a technical bookkeeper! We hope you'll help us spread the word about this unique opportunity to join our small team.
firstname.lastname@example.org is my mainI'm still on pump.io! This is the great benefit of Friendica. I can be on both Fediverses and on the Diaspora Federation too, and all in one browser tab.- - - -Ok, I've tried out Friendica for a few days now and I really feel at home.
email@example.com is my main now.
Through the years I've been @firstname.lastname@example.org (now pump.io, where I still have @Clacke moved to social.heldscal.la and datamost.com ), @email@example.com (now defunct), @firstname.lastname@example.org (now defunct), @clacke (now defunct), @clacke (now defunct), @notclacke (now once again "not clacke", which ironically enough it wasn't for a few months), and @Claes Wallin (韋嘉誠) (pump.io).I've never seen the point of "moving", though, as in, deleting old accounts. I'm still registered and have access to the accounts above that still work. And it's still useful to have @clacke, @reposterclacke, @notclacke and whatever other liaison accounts I may not be immediately remembering.Show all 5 replies

Friendica does not act as a Pump.io server, you can't follow a Friendica account. It can act as a Pump.io client, so it will allow @Claes Wallin (韋嘉誠) to use his *existing* Pump.io account "through" it.

Ah. I get lost sometimes. We're having to gear up for a few months of Continuing Professional Education on legislative changes presuming the Congress doesn't enact any more changes. My head is swimming already as we're treading water.@JanKusanagi Oh, is that how it's supposed to work? It doesn't present that way anywhere, pump.io contacts are followed just like normal contacts, and I haven't seen anywhere to link up with a native pump.io account.But I can see that friendi.ca offers no pump.io metadata at https://libranet.de/.well-known/webfinger?resource=acct:firstname.lastname@example.org so you seem to be right that it's not even trying to be a pump.io node.I have been able to follow several pump.io accounts from within friendica, but I haven't received a single message from them, which would of course be impossible if they can't even find my inbox.

- Can't help but notice a link between Graeber:
the creation of meaningless administrative jobs and the concomitant bullshitization of real work — forcing nurses, doctors, teachers, professors to fill out endless forms all day — [ . . . ] has the effect of massively lowering productivityand Ibryam (/via @renatocan):
Creating marketing campaigns, brand designs, distributing stickers, etc. takes money, and some foundations can assist with that as well. At its core, foundations implement the right processes to interact with users, developers, and control mechanisms and ensure distribution of available financial resources to open source projects for the common good.Some of this is unavoidable and necessary work. We need people to inform each other of what's out there, and we need people to translate between people and make decisions if we want problems to be solved productively. But a lot of the brand designs, stickers, t-shirts and whatnot are workarounds due to the fact that we don't know better ways to fund free software. The foundations and fiscal sponsors, bless them -- I donate regularly to @conservancy -- are providing the community with essential services, as proven by the projects signing up with them, but I think they're also doing work that is overhead and workarounds to the fact that we don't have good ways to fund free software, or at least not all free software (Ibryam's Tokenomics article has examples of successful and pretty direct methods that work for some). This is exactly the space where https://fractalide.com/fractalmarket/ will make a difference, by connecting users to free software products, and through our component model even distributing funds to those essential core components that everybody uses but nobody uses directly. We're imagining a future where a project like OpenSSL won't be in the situation where it is used by a billion people, but funded largely by the volunteer work of one person. If a component is on Fractalmarket, and it's used by another component, and that component is used by an application, and somebody pays for that application, we want to make sure that a fair fraction of that payment reaches the component at the bottom of that graph.

Latest stable is 5.1.0, with 5.1.1 coming one of these days with a few small fixes and... Docker images, I think.
5.2 (or was it 6.0?) coming "soonish" with partial ActivityPub support, probably.

- Pleroma's innards were designed to use AS2 from the beginning, but it has only had an OStatus interface so far. Now it's ready for ActivityPub!
After some work, ActivityPub support will be merged into the develop branch of Pleroma in the next days.
Pleroma is an OStatus+ActivityPub (any day now) node implemented in Elixir with a PostgreSQL backend and an innovative flat but kinda-threaded partially-discourse-like front-end.
The backend implements the Mastodon API and the Twitter + some of Qvitter API, so the Pleroma frontend runs on both Pleroma and GNU Social (with qvitter plugin), and the backend can host both its own frontend and the Mastodon frontend, which is vendored with the project.

Interesting. The Mark Pesce Token is like EvanCoin, but he's put in effort to clear the contract details, handle Australian consumer law, etc.

Michael Lynch: Why I quit Google
My career was being dictated by a shifting, anonymous committee who thought about me for an hour of their lives. Management decisions that I had no input into were erasing months of my career progress.
Worst of all, I wasn’t proud of my work. Instead of asking myself, “How can I solve this challenging problem?” I was asking, “How can I make this problem look challenging for promotion?” I hated that.

A Declaration of the Dependence of Cyberspace
1. Pretty gutsy to put yourself on the level of a father of several movements and phenomenons, and a phenomenon himself.
2. "It is hard to believe that such a naïve view of cyberspace was taken seriously just about 20 years ago" Did you read any of the obituaries at all? It wasn't naïve -- it was hopeful, visionary speculative fiction and a cultural statement.
3. "What happens in cyberspace does not stay in cyberspace!" Yes yes, the internet runs on computers, and the cloud is other people's computers. Otherwise the Declaration wouldn't have made any sense. It was a statement about a chance to carve out something new. If cyberspace were intrinsically separate, there would have been no carving to do.
4. "dozens of cryptocurrencies, and initial coin offerings" Was this written in 2012? Try hundreds, thousands.
5. "Central banks used to strive for a stable currency value." Bretton-Woods was put in place over 70 years ago, and held only until near half a century ago.
6. "More recently they have come to realize that a slightly depreciating currency value (about 2% per year) is better for economic growth." 2% is a hunch. Nobody knows where the number comes from, it's a meme. And no central bank today manages to reach it. They're trapped between raging property inflation and recession fears.
7. "In contrast, the supply of cryptocurrencies is a priori limited" For some cryptocurrencies. It's an open space, people can try, and are trying, other models, including currencies pegged to the prices of various key indicators and commodity or currency prices.
8. "The cryptocurrency bubble is, in my opinion, a growing systemic financial risk" Yes, we are fumbling in the dark, we haven't been experimenting this much with the core mechanisms and institutions of the economy before. But saying that is hardly original.
Come on, ACM.
Just as you cannot separate the mind and the body, you cannot separate cyberspace and physical space. It is time to accept this dependence and act accordingly.
And that's why we want to defend it against states, corporations, lawyers and criminals. But I repeat myself. What are you doing?
- A few neat tricks around setting up the default.nix for your project, not just for building the project or getting the dependencies for nix-shell, but also doing further customization of the nix-shell environment.

Whoa, slow down, my friend.
- Hypothesis has an automated release flow:
Once you’ve written a release file and the pull request is merged into master, and after all the other tests have passed, our CI uses this file to create a new release.First, it works out the new version number, and updates it in version.py. Then it copies the release description into the changelog, including the new version number and the current date.
- Nice dick move, Goodkind.
