Well here we go, a Synapse release candidate fresh from the press. 1.6.0rc1 contains federation support for cross signing, version 5 rooms by default and prep for database sharding. Check it out if you would like to help us test github.com/matrix-org/synapse/

@Wolf480pl I was being genuine for once. :blobcat:

(I mean, sure, email is ugly, but compared to almost every other communication system in use, it's the most beautiful thing we have!)

watching @aral tear into Facebook and centralised social media is inspiring and reminding me why I am studying digital culture and focusing on community building surrounding extended narratives. I want the internet to be small campfires where people tell stories and meet, not a big city square of protesters trying to shout louder than the soapboxers and snake oil salesmen.

I hope we get to see a proper decentralisation of social media and a realisation of our worth as databanks.

@aral did an amazing speech today in the european parliament on "the future of internet regulation". It was a full attack on how the EU is currently supporting big tech platforms.

How do I get more people to join Mastodon?

VPN services are *not* a viable method for protecting your data from nation state actors or other advanced threats. They are not engineered for privacy and they should really aim to be more honest in their advertising.

That said, I'm tired of people saying that you should never use a VPN. VPNs do offer robust security against much of the average person's threat landscape with trade-offs that can be easily managed.

I think I accidently restarted all the Windows clients here at work...

Yes, The name matters. It will always remind us how and why everything started. Use the term GNU/Linux instead of "Linux" .

Facebook has recently admitted that its greatest threat, looking to the future, is federated platforms.

Many federating platforms (like PeerTube, a video sharing software, or WriteFreely, a blogging software) are springing up around the federating system.

Capitalist websites like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter are getting progressively worse in how they act, in their quest for profits.

Meanwhile, the fediverse is only getting stronger, powered by money through voluntary donations and the hard work of thousands of admins.

Federation is a positive path forward for the future of the internet, has liberated people and allowed them to form regenerative communities, and is helping to educate people about alternative ideas and methods to those promoted by capitalist business.

It's really encouraging to see the fediverse doing so well.

Realized that I do not need 50% of the domains I own, so I cancelled them
