@aral Excellent piece indeed, about the no-less excellent and sweet Daniel (also an expert in bamboo and all that can be built out of it!)...
I don't know what to think of the analogy between "counterantidisintermediation" and "antidisestablishmentarianism" (!)... I love the play of words and historical comparison sounds right, but so long for accessibility and appeal to general public... :/
The Nomad Who’s Exploding the Internet Into Pieces
Excellent article on the lovely Dominic Tarr and his efforts to decentralise technology. Dominic is not only one of the most prolific developers I know but one of the few people actually working to further the cause of decentralisation. (And we’re not talking about right libertarian blockchain bullshit but actual topological decentralisation of the network itself.)
Global Voices honors the life of Bassel Khartibil, executed by the Syrian government.

Le jour du #14juillet,
Je reste dans mon lit douillet ;
La musique qui marche au pas,
Cela ne me regarde pas.
Je ne fais pourtant de tort à personne,
En n'écoutant pas le clairon qui sonne ;
Mais les braves gens n'aiment pas que
L'on suive une autre route qu'eux…
Non les braves gens n'aiment pas que
L'on suive une autre route qu'eux…
Tout le monde me montre au doigt,
Sauf les manchots, ça va de soi...
Report from Camp++ field: We have Internet access and a TeaHouse @campzer0 \o/ What else do we need? :)) <3

Les affreux techno-vendus de l'équipe de négociations doivent encore en faire des cauchemars muahahahaha! (Ils se sont bien foutus de nous huhuhu...)
5 years ago already that we won against #ACTA!
A victory that was "impossible" to achieve, that stormed the EU Parliament an Commission, 12 to 1! A fruit of the long-term mobilisation, grounded in solid analysis, by 1000s of people accross the world!
Let's hope methods of organizing are not lost, and that we find grounds for such striking victories in near future! <3
Anyone developed an extension that would turn all twitter buttons on various pages into t00ter buttons for mastodon? (Also changing Google Maps links to OSM, and such easy de-googl-ification links would be awesome!)
May also be nice to add in twitter's interface a "t00t that!" button, to easily import information from 3v1l birdsite to fediverse...?
Nozoïd OCS-2 is not only the synth with one of the meanest, fattest, most badass sounds I've heard... It's also sooo fun to play with, and its interface is sooo smart <3 <3 <3 (all on one arduino!!)
I also hear that when 100 will be sold, its hardware will become free/libre, as its software is already! <3
A trove of internal documents sheds light on the #algorithms that Facebook’s censors use to differentiate between hate speech and legitimate political expression.'
