A yearly online conference with presentations from AP developers and others, hosted on PeerTube and accessible to everyone. I think this will be my next project!

#Firefox Test Pilot has a new feature called "Side View". I immediately added my #Mastodon tab into it and now am more addicted to Mastodon than ever! 😂

Found a nice wiki on how to use #MediaWiki in education which is itself a MediaWiki instance.

#Utopian vision of the day:

Assumption:
An affordable phone that runs a full GNU/Linux operating system exists.

Imagination:
People use the device as a phone most of the time. Almost all their personal data is exclusively stored on the phone only. The phones run #P2P apps with distributed backup.

This phone can also be connected to a keyboard+mouse and monitor setup to act as a desktop. These terminals are in a community-owned place. People come and use them whenever they need to.

I'm just seeding all the #dat websites I find these days on #mastodon. And they automatically stay updated, which is nice! 😎

I just helped to stop #CensorshipMachines that would filter ALL of our online content. You too can help to #SaveYourInternet: d.shpg.org/420107097t Contact your EU representative before 4 July!

@nolan Standards work is often also in many cases too privileged to an elite group. You and I have been able to participate because currently we both have employers backing us, and before that for me I was well known enough to be brought in as an "invited expert" to a w3c group (which is comparatively rare).

I'd still like to see a standards body with a less corporate-oriented form of governance.

Polish up your applications, Purism will be posting a number of job positions within the next few weeks. The future home of these job postings will be puri.sm/jobs/

It's official, #GetTogether now supports ActivityPub!

This is my first attempt at AP/AS, so somebody please let me know if I'm doing it wrong.

@bob I’d also like to add that folks eagerly awaiting SpaceX’s satellite constellation should also be weary of Yet Another Power Player, as that too is a private entity not beholden to the community it serves

We should be cautious of most concentrations of public services in the hands of opaque entities

Pretty much everything about how domain registrations and managing domain registrations work makes me sad.
