😡 NFT - I'm in total ideological conflict with the idea AND the technic.
Today I saw my art " Yin and Yang of world hunger" (license: CC non commercial/non derivative) on OpenSea platform posted by someone. What a shame. #nftart is open door to all type of scam...

I think you should not interpret the phrase "why millenials hat you" as "if you read this, every millenial hates you" (because that would be silly)

But many millenials have been given the very short end of the straw, and are justifiably unhappy about hearing from smug, well-off older people about how lazy they were.

I'm a bit too old to be a millenial, but comparing the stuff I dealt with to the lives of people 10, 15 years younger: I had no idea how easy I had it

Yes it's a very common occurrence for folks to associate Mastodon as the Fediverse itself - I myself did this initially, and truth be told, it wasn't all that far from accurate.

Initially, GNU Social was one of the earliest implementations of a server platform heralding the beginning of the Fediverse - based on the OStatus protocol, then came ActivityPub and other server platforms, Mastodon actually doing the most for the Fediverse as far as it being accessable and pretty (with that really cool logo they have of the happy elephant).

Diaspora was an early Fediverse player with promise, but with it's own protocol so it is still rather overlooked and doesn't incorporate ActivityPub out of the box, instead relying upon its own federating protocol (But Friendica bridges that Gap, so I can actually do some stuff like interact with folks on Diaspora from within Fedilab... to some degree).

Most platforms initially tried to adopt the use of both OStatus and ActivityPub but both Mastodon and Pleroma have since dropped OStatus. I think otther platforms that don't have ActivityPub integration will soon start to lose their viability, as OStatus appears to be on it's way out and replaced, in large part, by ActivityPub.

Where I believe the biggest differences can be made, is in the support of "Fediverse" in general, by applications, rather than particular server platforms, and Fedilab goes a long way toward that goal.

Of course, supporting more platforms means more development as well as a larger APK, so there's that ;)

As far as development, however, contributions to the project can be made here and will certainly make a HUGE difference in the longevity, as well as keeping development aggressively active :)

They don't push this, as the folks on the Fedilab dev team are rather modest, but I do, so I recommend that we all give something, whatever we can, however much or little, because every little bit helps, and in the end, if benefits us "the users", most of all.

Developing #Fedilab has been mostly a labor of love and for the #Fediverse itself, and they've had to brave some pretty sickening haters due to their stance on keeping free software free (as in Libre), as things have turned out pretty much as they are supposed to with the users themselves and the server admins deciding for themselves what kind of view into the Fediverse they want, and that's where those choices need to be made, not in applications that cripple the freedoms that even those we most oppose, and perhaps despise, should themselves enjoy.

Here's the link where we can all contribute to the continued development of Fedilab and the rest of the Fediverse suite of applications and services that they continue to improve:

99% of programming is figuring out why you received a banana when you asked for an apple.

(And the answer is always “because you actually asked for a banana all along.”)

Imagine t'as fait 10 ans d'études en biologie moléculaire. Tu bosses comme un dingue pendant 10 mois pour développer un vaccin pour contrer la plus grave crise sanitaire de l'histoire moderne. Ton vaccin est testé sur 20.000 volontaires en RCT placebo. Il est efficace à 95% et sans effet secondaire grave.

Résultat : les gens ne veulent pas de ton vaccin, disent que tu participes à un projet génocidaire ou que tu veux leur injecter une nano puce.

Non je déconne.
Mais imagine quand même.

Block all third-party cookies, yes, by all means. But deleting Local Storage after 7 days effectively blocks any future decentralised apps using the browser (client side) as a trusted replication node in a peer-to-peer network. And that’s a huge blow to the future of privacy.

Merci à la factrice qui vient d'apporter nos courses faites en ligne et qui m'a appris que @bpost_fr@twitter.com était pour le moment en pénurie de personnel.

L'avantage avec les DRM, c'est qu'on voit que c'est vraiment efficace parce-que aucune série de Netflix, Amazon, Disney, HBO ou OCS ne se retrouve sur le réseau BitTorrent en clair, sans chiffrement.

Une belle réussite, donc.
Ça valait le coup de laisser des multinationales noyoter le w3c pour ca, et ajouter des boîtes noires dans nos navigateurs.
