Mal an die #admins in die Runde. Ich bin froh bei @milan zu sein, keine Frage. Allerdings #misskey finde ich cool, bei #pleroma würde ich auch gern spielen. #diaspora austauschen und selbst #hubzilla nutzen. Wie nutzt ihr #Server, wie #hetzner?


 
Recuerden, que #friendica sigue siendo la red de redes dentro del #fediverso.

No, no tiene ningun thema o formato tan chulo como el de #mastodon o el de #pleroma.

Sino, porque es una #red #social flexible e integradora: Con una cuenta en freindica puedes tener contactos de #diaspora, #mastodon, #pleroma, #socialhome, #gnusocial, #peertube, #read-as, #pixelfed, #WriteFreely, #WordPress, #hubzilla, # microblog-pub, #osada, ...

Ademas, y gracias en parte a #plugins puedes extender sus funcionalidades, como conectar a #twitter o usarse de espejo de paginas con #rss, o poder compartir tu calendario de actividades, o recibir publicaciones directamente desde blogs y otros sitios.

Si, con friendica puedes hacer mas de lo que te imaginas. Solo necesitas intentarlo y atreverte.

(Hasta aqui la tanda publicitaria y propagandistica)

Ich wünschte, die Mastodonten würden verstehen, dass Fediverse so viel mehr als nur Mastodon ist.

Vortrag über das Fediverse von Tobias






Zum Ende der Sommerpause der Salonabende im Schätzchen, dem Café für Schöne Dinge & Salonkultur, war ich am 10. August eingeladen, einen Vortrag über das Fediverse und Friendica als Alternative zu den kommerziellen Plattformen wie Facebook, Instagram und nebenan.de zu halten.

Das Fediverse ist ein Netzwerk von unterschiedlichen Social Media Plattformen, die alle als Freie Software umgesetzt sind. Die Knoten des Netzwerks, also die einzelnen Installationen bzw. Dienste, kommunizieren dabei über offene Protokolle mit einander, ähnlich wie man es von E-Mails her kennt. Damit können die Nutzerïnnen der einzelnen Dienste im Fediverse, über die Grenzen der jeweiligen Dienste hinweg, mit allen anderen Nutzerïnnen interagieren

Mastodon will demnächst das OStatus Protokoll rausschmeissen. Das wird die Netzwerke GNU Social und PostActiv betreffen. Diese werden dann für Mastodon nicht mehr erreichbar sein. Für GNU Social wird allerdings bereits ein Plugin entwickelt.

Ehrlich gesagt verstehe ich diese Eile nicht, Vor allem nicht von einem Netzwerk wie Mastodon, dass sich selbst nicht an das Protokoll Activitiy Pub hält, das es selbst mitentworfen hat.

Glücklicherweise geht Friendica da einen anderen Weg. Hier wird OStatus noch unterstützt. Ebenso das Diaspora Protokoll.

Es ist eine Sache, neuen Code für ein neues Protokoll zu entwickeln. Aber eine andere Sache bereits bestehenden Code rauszuschmeissen und damit andere Netzwerke auszuschließen.

The end is near: Mastodon plans to drop OStatus support

(english/deutsch)
Help wanted / Bitte um Hilfe

(english) I try to create an overview of the features of the different federated platforms and which communication protocols they are capable of. Or add another platform (with sources) that can "speak" the communication protocol that is mentioned on the sheet. Once it's finished it will be available for everybody. https://github.com/hoergen/besser-der-podcast/tree/master/fediverse

(deutsch) Ich versuche eine Übersicht von Featuren der verschiedenen föderierten Plattformen zund deren verfügbare Kommunikationsprotokolle zu erstellen. Oder fügt eine Plattform (mit Quellen) hinzu, die hier nicht aufgeführt ist, die die entsprechenden Kommunikationsprotokolle "spricht". Wenn es dann fertig ist, stelle ich es natürlich allen zur Verfügung. https://github.com/hoergen/besser-der-podcast/tree/master/fediverse

European Copyright Reform: Article 13 puts alternative social networks at risk


If you live in the European Union, you have probably heard about the planned European Copyright Reform, and you are probably aware of its controversial Article 13.

The so-called Proposal for a Directive on copyright in the Digital Single Market intends to introduce new regulations around copyright. Article 13 would add new liability rules for online content-sharing service providers. While previously, providers could act on content that infringed copyright upon receiving a notice, the proposed regulations would render providers accountable for content as soon as it has been uploaded.

Effectively, this would put providers into a position where they have to implement strict upload filters to prevent users from uploading content that may infringe on someone else's copyright. This is dangerous, and it puts free speech, the diversity of opinions, and the internet as a whole at risk.

Article 13 previously contained rules to exclude platforms younger than three years, generating revenue of less than €10 million or with fewer than 5 million active users. Last week, however, a new draft was published, and the proposal now only excludes platforms matching all three of those conditions.

This is shocking. If Article 13 became a reality, everyone who operates a platform for users to publish content for more than three years would be 100% liable for everything happening on that platform, including content the operators are not even aware of. This makes operating an alternative social network effectively impossible.

For more details about the planned copyright reform, and information on how you can help, please check out saveyourinternet.eu. This does not concern just diaspora* or your other favorite alternative social network. This concerns everyone. This is about health of the internet. Please #SaveYourInternet and fight against the #CensorshipMachine.

For reference, you will find below an open letter from diappora* core team member Dennis Schubert, sent to those members of the European Parliament who currently support Article 13.
Dear Member of the European Parliament

The proposed Directive on copyright in the Digital Single Market has been the topic of discussions for many months now. In spite of many debates on this matter, not much progress has been made to address concerns of many respected experts, including many NGOs and even the United Nations' Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression, David Kaye[1]. According to my information, you are in the group of members of the European Parliament currently in favour of supporting this proposal, which is why I am reaching out to you to request you to reconsider the proposal, and especially consider the impact Article 13 will have on the Internet.

I am writing to you as a citizen of the European Union, but I am also reaching out to represent the many users and engineers behind alternative social networks. I am the project lead of diaspora*[2], an alternative, distributed social network based on free and open-source software. Together with similar projects such as Mastodon and Friendica, the world of alternative social media reaches over 2.5 million users on more than 4000 servers, including citizens who are part of your constituency.

Until now, the European Union has been seen as the epicentre of many efforts to build and maintain alternatives to large networks such as Facebook and Twitter. Many of these projects, their developers, and users are citizens of the European Union, and our projects enjoy great popularity among people as they are seen as privacy-friendly, local alternatives to the large systems built by American corporations. On many occasions in the past, European Union legislation has supported these projects and their principles, for instance with the recently implemented General Data Protection Regulation [4]to ensure high levels of data privacy for EU citizens.

Unfortunately, the planned copyright reform, and especially Article 13, will have an effect exactly opposite to supporting such projects and efforts.

The upload filters both explicitly described in and implied by the text on which you will be voting would force all online platforms to rely on technologies known to be error-prone, intrusive and legally questionable[5]. The proposal intends to hold providers of online platforms accountable for all content uploaded by users as soon as they have been published, contrary to the "notice and takedown" procedure currently in place, which allows providers to remove offending content upon receiving notice without the fear of legal repercussions.

For large platforms like Twitter and YouTube, this change would result in the implementation of stricter upload filters. Due to the technical natures of such systems and the strict liability regulations, those systems will be designed to block "too much", because blocking "too little" would put the provider at risk. Such over-cautious filters are a danger for users' freedom of speech, the diversity of opinions and creativity on the entire Internet, and would limit EU citizens' rights substantially.

Implementing Article 13 in its current form would be the end for smaller platforms and projects, as well as small and medium-sized businesses working on these or similar projects. Although in a previous revision of the proposal, platforms younger than three years, with revenue of less than €10 million, or with fewer than 5 million monthly active users would be excluded, a recent revision of the proposal now only excludes projects that meet all three of these conditions. For projects like diaspora*, which is significantly older than three years, this decision would result in all operators being responsible for every action their users do.

Non-profit projects like diaspora* are developed and maintained by people working voluntarily. Operators of servers running these software projects run those because they deem privacy important and want to provide an alternative to the large networks. They do not earn any money by doing this. The development, embedding and maintenance of infrastructure needed to filter copyright violations automatically requires a lot of resources, and implementing such solutions would thus simply be impossible.

If Article 13 became a reality, these projects and companies would not be able to comply with the new laws, so they could either cease to provide their services to European citizens and move their operations to a country outside the EU or stop their activities altogether. For Europe, especially as a community for strong privacy principles and independent, alternative solutions, this would be a huge step backwards and would make the established large networks, which quite regularly violate European principles, even more powerful.

With this, I am asking you to reject Article 13 of the Copyright Directive and to support all citizens who raise their voice for a free, open and diverse Internet.

Please do not use your vote to destroy the Internet.

Thank you.

Sincerely yours,

Dennis Schubert

Basically the same also applies for Friendica and Mastodon:

Your name in diaspora\*


It occurred to me that most of the people who have come to diaspora\* from G+ are using their real names.

Some of you might not know that you don't have to use your real name in diaspora*. You can call yourself anything you want to. Indeed, you can be whoever you want in diaspora*. There's no need to reveal anything about yourself that you don't want to.

If you want to be a witty gecko or a highly intelligent aspidistra, you can!

Of course, if you want to 'be' yourself, and use your real name, that's fine too. But you're not restricted in that way.

Have fun!

instead of trying to find ways to do it inside the frederation/fediverse

Well, the #Fediverse is fractured into different parts, #Mastodon users (programmers) could then not communicated with #Diaspora users. #Github got kind of evil because of #Microsoft

"offtopic":
I knew the microsoft issue would come up ..
that's just kinda "different" battleground, although actually proves my centralized dependency point when it comes to: "let's discuss inside our realm!"
For me it's kinda strange that any coder of the federation-fediverse hasn't an account with any of the competetive but befriended projects.
Like to say:
For me as a surfer/user/testdriver and (dis)content creator it's basics to have an account on all the projects just out of curiosity and I think as a coder I would actively look out for what are doing the others to get more input, more ideas, widen my perception of the multiverse we create. So using the different platforms for the discussion is just a logical step for me that should naturally improve the whole system just by using it and knowing of each other.

If friendica is more kinda interconnecting platform it's reasonable to host the basic forum profiles there. If diaspora has a voting tool it's reasonable to use it so every one can "vote" with his diaspora account on surveys. If GNUsocial is (or mastodon, the one I haven't used yet) better for chit-chat about other aspects .. let's enjoy it and test it for that purpose.

That doesn't mean that if for specific important things a precise centralized tool fit's right now best (or is the established worst option for now) like it's the case for coding github or translations .. be it. And if coders say "for our needs we have to use discourse or other", I guess it's about specific needs to accomplish certain job .. perfect.

What I'm talking about is more in the direction of that I wonder if sometimes for coders every problem looks like the need for an app, a littel bit like when you have a hammer and every thumb looks like a nail you know. I get the impression that what the bigger picture → "the community" needs is implementation of "moderation tools" by moderators, something I guess is more about the realm of the work @Sean Tilley got when he came to the diaspora project long time ago.

To me it looks like that the "flaws" and imperfection of the federated fediverse needs some human man power to maintain the flux of conversation/information by doing the job of interlocutor, meaning man power driven dedicated forum pages and profiles on the different networks to keep the work/discussion going ..

not sure if this was more comprehensive @Hypolite Petovan (he/him) ??

@Michael Vogel du könntest das auch nochmal neu Posten mit #diaspora Tag. dann lesen das.noch mehr Leute.


 
#friendica can interact with #diaspora #mastodon comments, but Hubzilla can not and mastodon interactive comments, do not know why?


 
What's your opinion? Which federated network/software benefits most from the Facebook data disaster? How do you see the overall development? Which software will continue to have difficulties and which is on the upswing?

#mastodon #diaspora #friendica #hubzilla


 
I wonder what future #Diaspora has? The interface is so much nicer than the one of #Friendica.
