I'm happy that I'll be part of two meetings this month in front of the EU Commission talking about decentralized social networks and the work we've done socialhub.activitypub.rocks/t/

I believe this conversation is an important one to have, and I'd like to expand on why below.

@rain *yawn*. you know what’s more decentralised than activitypub? posting something on twitter *and* activitypub...

#ANNONCE
1/ Comme je vous l’avais annoncé sur le message du Nouvel An, après nos difficultés des dernières années, CAIRN lance une offre de service pour fabriquer vos pièces.

C’est la dernière machine qu’il nous manquait pour ne plus être bloqué et cette machine, nous l’avons acquis il y a 1 mois !
