Let's crowdsource some twitter to fedi exodus best practices.

Some ideas:

* Link your mastodon (or other fediverse) account(s) in your twitter bio.
* Post here first, twitter second.
* Prioritize engaging here.

As #GoogleIsEvil, G馃憖gle does evil things. This time they want every website, to OPT OUT of their spyware by setting a specific HTTP header.

So some people are (thinking of) sending patches to all the webserver software maintainers and urging every FUCKING SITE on the internet to apply that HTTP header.

Are you fucking INSANE?

How about creating a new HTTP status/error code:
"666: Fuck off G馃憖gle"

and return that to every user using #Google Chrome

Adapting the internet to G馃憖gle's whims 馃う

People who complain about censorship while primarily posting/engaging on twitter are almost as funny as privacy advocates who are anti-mask.

Finally, after 4 years in my todo list , I found the time to create the #Friendly #Router Project website... What the idea? Well, create a database of practically all #opensource friendly #hardware which can be used as switches, routers or firewalls. Would also like to share the configuration, test and benchmark...
I even have a mascot, say hello to Switchy! friendly-router.org/

Curious to hear from whoever voted O(n^4). Did I miss a factor?

Only one person had any insight on this? 馃憖

As I understand the problem, it's O(n^3). One n for the amount of nodes downloading the entire blockchain. A second n for the amount of users transacting on the blockchain. And a third n for the amount of counterparties for them to transact with (more counterparties = proportionally higher chance to do tx on btc instead of fiat).

Bitcoin ETFs are castrated BTC. If you are bullish on ETFs you are a castrated bull.

What actually is the big-O notation of the storage and bandwidth costs of naive onchain scaling, given n = the number of people using Bitcoin?

Excited about #ForgeFed but unsure what the status is? 馃槄

Want to help but unsure how? 馃

Wondering what's separating us from having a fediverse of forges? 馃

How do we, the free software community, stop depending on proprietary centralized tools and switch over to a free, by-the-people, decentralized hosting and collaboration platform?

I have an idea: Let's start doing biweekly/monthly community meetings! What do you think?

Please vote, and also comment and share your thoughts 馃槉

So apparently the German vaccination passports will be stored on 5 blockchains for redundancy. Because of course the inherent redundancy is not the one legitimate advantage of storing things in a blockchain.

What is "the price" and what are you trying to learn by obsessing over it?

ECB trying to redefine "fiat" currencies as "official" currencies. Don't fall for it.

Today I learned that even though the DMCA takedown of was reversed, the forks and pull requests that were taken down with it are still not back up. I'm really rooting for @forgefed to get some traction so people have a decentralized alternative.

RPF thought it was good to blog about 'it' after all:
raspberrypi.org/blog/visual-st

.. by a M$ snake-oil sales representative.

"VS Code is a free, open source developer text editor"

That is "free" as in beer, not freedom. And yes, the code is available, so technically open source, but you can't distribute the binary.

So technically he isn't lying.
But this also proves you (still) can't trust anything that comes from M$.
And shame on #RPF for giving this credence.

Compartmentalization is not without downsides. If you use proprietary social media as your primary way of sharing information with your peers, then you are opening an attack vector for being censored.

Even if you have alts/backup accounts on open platforms, you are likely not to want to link them to your person. Sharing evidence collected by your person from these accounts becomes much harder.

It's becoming more and more visible that censorship-resistance should be the default.
