The Ecosystem is Moving Away from Monoliths


https://blog.freedombone.net/the-ecosystem-is-moving-away-from-monoliths
In 2020 running a global chat system from a monolithic server on AWS, and in a manner which requires you to give out your mobile phone number, doesn't seem like all that great of an idea from a security and general ethics point of view. For example, how do we know that "ghost members" aren't being added to chat groups, as GCHQ suggested? Who is auditing Moxie's server and who else at Amazon has physical access to it? Use of phone numbers also opens up a variety of security problems. And that's even before wading into the quagmire that is the Electron-based desktop client.

Decentralization is the only way to systemically fight social media disinformation



#Russia 's information warfare in the #US didn't stop after Trump was elected. And US social network giants have failed to address it in the last 4 years. Partly because they directly benefit from content engagement, partly because as centralized platforms with billions of users, they naturally offer a bigger incentive to spread misinformation than any effort they are willing to mount to fight it.

The real solution, of course, is breaking the system into human-sized parts, through #decentralization. Even the biggest english-speaking #Fediverse instance has only 400,000 users, which makes it a mediocre target for misinformation with no opportunity for paid reach towards the nearly 3 million #Fediverse users.

You too can join the Fediverse and reduce paid agitators' incentive: https://fediverse.party/en/fediverse/

#Centralization of #Internet services makes it easy for governments to pressure vast swaths of people by leveraging a handful of private companies that can't refuse #censorship orders.

#Decentralization now.

Federated code hosting


Are you interested in #federated #code hosting? This term means a site like #GitHub, #GitLab, #Cogs or #Gitea - but instead of all servers being an individual part of the #web, they talk to each other just like servers in the #fediverse. Imagine being able to open issues, make pull requests and engage in discussion, to any other repository from your own personal code hosting server?

It's been estimated that today's #Cloudflare outage is effecting about 10% of all websites world-wide.

If a lot of your online world is down right now, your word and research topic for the day is #decentralization

If you haven't found a good instance of #peertube yet you might want to try https://open.tube , a pretty open instance but still regulates copyrighted content, porn and facism.

It has a unlimited upload limit and might be a great start for content creators wanting to get into peertube!

New to Friendica


Redoing my intro post after some advice from @utzer:

Hi folks, I decided to join Friendica since it sounded interesting & I believe redecentralizing the internet is the way forward. I'm also on Mastodon & Scuttlebutt. I creatively write & LOVE to talk about the social implications of technology. I look forward to seeing what's out here.

My friend and his girlfriend had a very barky min-pin. They tried putting a collar on the dog that would spray citronella in her face when she barked. The dog would bark once, get sprayed, then perform a quick binary search to discover the volume threshold, after which she'd bark right under the threshold.

I'm not sure why we think fascists don't do this.

So weird that using a laptop as a "thin" client is so much more battery- and RAM-intensive than simply installing native applications and running them locally. It's almost like abusing a technology that was never intended for this purpose is a bad idea.

On a recommendation from @utzer, this is a #newhere post with some hashtags of things I care about: #dev #linux #decentralization #yoga #meditation #cycling #running #education #nz #microsolidarity and #enspiral That's a pretty good start 😉
