Update 8 June
All around the world, thousands of nodes are still humming away, carefully storing and replicating the community’s cockerel pics and dubious music choices for ever, and ever...
Don’t worry, we’re going to take this testnet down in due course, but as time goes on the #safenetwork is becoming noticeably more stable, predictable and scalable - which is extremely gratifying.
Please do carry on uploading, sharing and posting logs.
@absolutejank @EposVox @arstechnica
People kinda needs to understand it more like #IRC or #eMail as a #decentralized option...
We are thrilled to announce the launch of our new testnet, which builds upon the success of the previous NatNet.
This testnet, codenamed ReplicationNet, is set to explore Data Replication and Health Metrics.
We’ll be concentrating on analysing the network health under considerable data load.
Come and join us.
I think the enshittification of Twitch is even more eminent with their recent decision. Which sucks cause I just made affiliate a few months ago.
Holding back too much judgement at the moment, waiting to see if they clarify their ad policy. But I also might consider streaming elsewhere. Are there any other #streaming platforms that are #decentralized? That have decent community standards?
One of my online friends from another #collapse community will be presenting about #hydroponics and #opensource #decentralized #sustainable technology at a new #solarpunk conference on June 24th! He will try to record his presentation for his YouTube channel, so if you can't afford a ticket to the show I might be able to get a link to at least his presentation from the conference. https://www.solarpunkconference.com/
Centralized social media platforms have let down their respective communities time and time again... is the future of social media #decentralized?
Can someone answer some lemmy related questions?
First, which instance do you like, recommend?
Second, if I join beehaw, for example, how can I access the communities that are created on lemmy.ml
Third, how does interacting with lemmy content from mastodon work?
Thanks in advance. I am expecting to migrate to lemmy as Reddit enforces the API cost. I want to start adding content now, so other do not find it as empty.
It makes me happy to see growth in a #decentralized web. Whilst bit corporations still hold most of the population, there are thriving indie groups that are building a nice niche away from all of that. Like whatever you're seeing this through.
Explore The Fediverse: Decentralized Social Media Networks
The #Fediverse is a #Decentralized social network ecosystem, comprising a network of interconnected platforms. Users have the freedom to choose their preferred platform, from microblogging sites like #Mastodon to photo-sharing networks like #Pixelfed, enabling a personalized experience while being able to like, share, comment, follow users on other platforms. Welcome to the Fediverse.
Integrating #tootfinder into #mastodon search could improve search results quite significantly.
It would only really be practical as an experiment though - as it would cause a large influx in traffic and would ultimately harm the #decentralized nature of the fediverse.
From the example of Kirklees, UK about decentralised renewable energy generation:
> Household savings under the Warm Zones program total around C$16 million per year, money that is available to spend in the region on other things. One hundred direct jobs were created and another 60 indirect jobs. At least 1,000 households have been removed from fuel poverty.
hashtags: #Synergia #UK #FuelPoverty #Decentralized #RenewableEnergy #ClimateChange
Did you know that Cyberfurz is a registered LLC in the state of Virginia in the USA? Not only that, we host multiple #Fediverse and #Decentralized services free of charge?
FuzzySearx: A #SearXNG instance allowing you to search the major search engines without giving them your details, we proxy the requests for you.
Cyberfurz Chat: A #Matrix server that is hosted and operated by us with assistance from etke for helping us keep it patched weekly with all the latest Matrix goodies.
Cyberfurz Social: This Mastodon instance running the glitch-soc fork with Bunny as our CDN to ensure pictures and videos load nice and snappy for you no matter where you are.
@FurryFediverse: We stand by decentralized and federated ideals. We’re not asking you to join our server, we just want you to join an instance where you will feel at home. This is the site we maintain to help the #furry community find instances that align with their interests.

The seems to be a common consensus that the #internet does not forget which undermines the immense effort of #archive 's such as the #internetarchive
I've written a little #blog post about what I perceive to be an alarming threat to the internets #decentralized and #openaccess and the ever growing walled gardens across the web making information ever harder to find.
@Xtrems876 Well said!
We need to make an effort to support #openSource and #decentralized alternatives.
Update 01 June
We declare NatNet a success! As far as we can tell, all home nodes behind NAT were successfully detected and shut down.
Now we are confident in detecting nodes behind a NAT, the next step would be allowing them to join via hole punching and UDP/Quic.
We’re also taking an initial gander at provider nodes that can perform tasks such as archiving.
The other area we’ve returned to is the matter of node sizing.
@funkwhale It's not the instance itself. Please don't take offense! It's just the fact that a #decentralized service is more vital if there are many instances creating the network. 🙃
I can't run a #Funkwhale server myself at the moment. Otherwise I'd love to be a good role model and at least host a private instance to share my own music. :fediverse:
I am preparing to write an article about the magnificent world of decentralized social networking, and so far, it is looking GOOD. I didn't see any journalists write about this topic so far here.
Great things ahead. I can't wait to share it with all of you.

Also attending the meeting were Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan, President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev, President of Kyrgyzstan Sadyr Japarov, Prime Minister of Belarus Roman Golovchenko, and Chairman of the Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission Mikhail Myasnikovich. The forum moderator was Alexander Shokhin, President of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, member of the Presidium of the EAEU Business Council.
The #purpose of the Eurasian Economic Forum, established by a decision of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council and timed to coincide with a meeting of the SEEC, is to further #deepen_economic_cooperation between the #EAEU #member_states.

Address at the plenary session of the 1st Eurasian Economic Forum.
#President of #Russia #Vladimir_Putin: I am grateful for this opportunity to address you, to speak on the issues which you [Alexander Shokhin] have raised and which, as you suggested, should be addressed in greater detail.
First of all, I would like to thank President of Kyrgyzstan Sadyr Japarov and his team for organizing this event. I can see many people in the audience, including businesspeople and government officials. I am sure that the media will take a keen interest in the forum.
This is what I would like to begin with when answering your question. The development of Eurasian integration has no connection whatsoever to current developments or market conditions. We established this organization many years ago. In fact, we established it at the initiative of the First President of Kazakhstan [Nursultan Nazarbayev].
I remember very well the main conversation we had on that issue, on that subject, when he said, “You must choose what is more important to you: working more actively and more closely with your direct neighbors and natural partners, or prioritizing, for example, admission to the World Trade Organization.” It was in this connection that we had to make decisions.
And although we were interested in joining the WTO and in developing relations accordingly with our Western partners, as you said and as I continue to say, we nevertheless regarded as our main priority the development of relations with our direct and natural neighbors within the common economic framework of the Soviet Union. This is my first point.

Safe Network Update 18 May
Thanks to everyone who took part in the testnet this week.
Despite its ‘rapid unscheduled disassembly’ (© SpaceX), we really did learn some valuable lessons from it, and fortunately the fixes shouldn’t be too tricky.
We also found a bug related to logging which has already been sorted, so we’ll be fully ready to go once the next iteration is ready.
I read a couple of paragraphs and immediately feel the urge to re-share.

This is a really great writeup on #decentralized by #TheNewPublic.
Send it to your confused friends.
Did someone say decentralized? The Free Software Foundation and Defective by Design are on Mastodon, a decentralized social media platform licensed under #GNUAgplv3! Visit us at https://hostux.social/@fsf and https://hostux.social/@endDRM. #Mastodon #Decentralized #Fediverse
So New_ Public lists the following 8 (!) emerging #decentralized #social networking protocols as the ones to watch:
ActivityPub, AT Protocol (Bluesky), Nostr, Farcaster, Lens, DSNP, SSB (Scuttlebutt), and Spritely.
Got a question for #calckey & #fediverse at large. Is there a #decentralized platform for long-form, “blog” types of things? Been wanting to get back into #blogging for games I play, along with personal projects.
Any recommendations? Or should I just run my own blog with WordPress, Ghost, or the many others that have been around for a long while?
Thanks in advance! All suggestions welcome!
I'm now beginning to learn just how challenging it is to run a #federated and #decentralized platform. I definitely made some mistakes while migrating from #debian to #freebsd. One of those mistakes was not doing any database cleanup like culling accounts no longer active. Then I learned the hard way that I had to do a complete media refresh when I didn't copy the cached images of all of my followers avatars. This is a good learning experience!
Somehow, the press never asks any questions that weren't already in the press release, and certainly none that would offend their advertisers.
There are a couple other factors besides the fact that centralized stations can run the high side more efficiently than more decentralized iterations. The most obvious one is what is done with the energy saved (read: money & profits for corporations).
When that is diverted & extracted, users pick up the tab. Pricing options generally restrict or compromise the natural tendencies of people to control their actions (their own efficiency pursuits). This combination results in users adopting practices that are wasteful, redundant, and mismanaged.
In other words, the efficiencies of a centralized system maintain their monopoly advantage by making it impossible for a competitor (or anyone else!) to implement cost-saving procedures *and* have the same availability.
If your competitor is open 24/7, you can't be open more than them. Seen from the other side, if you're in the lead (& @ max speed), you remove all governors that limit use.
Since limits are fundamental to sustainable systems, this is a recipe for failure. This is another aspect to the Tragedy of the Commons. Local control delivers optimal resilience & centralized hub networks deliver optimal production efficiency.
So we have to be careful about what we view as the 'old way'. It practically never entailed individuals each paying to run their systems at max 24/7, while actually using much less. (Speaking generally here, not just regarding servers & internet.)
It also did not entail billions of bot interactions whose only purpose is to generate a higher view count, nor billions of digital photos & auto-played videos saved that would never make it past an editor, and won't be viewed again. The list goes on & on..

@bbchris #Mastodon is independent of #Medium. It is a #decentralized alternative to #Twitter.
Ignore those who say that it works "without an #algorithm." This is utter #nonsense. It is impossible to present to you information without using an algorithm. The algorithm that Mastodon uses, however, is not designed to drive the interests of Mastodon itself. The algorithm serves you, not someone else.

Charging my Phone with almost 2A. Free of charge, but charging! One of those things that the generations before us told us would never work. I am in Northern Europe, jfyi, where most houses are heated by heat pumps. #denmark #solar #mobile #decentralized #energy.
Attention all #Fediverse users: #Elon #Musk has arrived on the scene, and he's here to steal your data! That's right, the eccentric billionyaire and CEO of #Tesla and #SpaceX has set his sights on the #decentralized social network, and he's not leaving without your personyal #information.
#Rumors have been swirling for months that Musk was planning to join the Fediverse, and now it seems those rumors have come true. According to sources close to the situation, Musk has been quietly creating accounts on various Fediverse platforms, including #Mastodon, #Pleroma, and #Calckey.
But why would Musk be interested in the Fediverse, you ask? The answer is simple: data. Musk has made no secret of his desire to collect as much data as possible about his customers and fans, and the Fediverse is a veritable goldmine of personyal information.
From your profile information to your posts and interactions, Musk is hoping to mine the Fediverse for every last byte of data he can get his hands on. And who knows what he plans to do with all that information? Perhaps he's looking to build an army of loyal fans, or maybe he's just trying to satisfy his insatiable curiosity about the human race. Whatever his motivations, one thing is clear: he's not here for the cute cat pictures and funny memes.
So what can you do to protect yourself from Musk's data-grabbing schemes? The first step is to be cautious about what you share on the Fediverse. Don't give away too much personyal information in your profile, and be mindful of the content you post. Think twice before you hit that "submit" button, and consider whether or not you really want that information out there for the world to see.
Another option is to simply block Musk and his various accounts. Many Fediverse platforms allow you to block specific users or even entire domains, so if you're concerned about Musk's data-collecting efforts, this may be a good solution for you.
But let's be honest: blocking Elon Musk is easier said than done. The man has a way of capturing our attention and refusing to let go, whether we love him or hate him. So if you do decide to engage with Musk on the Fediverse, just remember to be careful and protect your personyal information.
And who knows? Maybe Musk will surprise us all and use his vast wealth and influence for good, rather than evil. Maybe he'll donyate all his data to scientific research, or use it to cure diseases and save lives. Maybe he's not the data-stealing supervillain we all fear, but rather a misunderstood genius with a heart of gold.
Or maybe he's just Elon Musk. Either way, be careful out there on the Fediverse, and watch out for any suspicious activity. You never know who might be lurking in the shadows, ready to steal your data and use it for their own nefarious purposes.
If you manyaged to read all this, I'm sorry for wasting your time!
All this complete bullshit and I was bored! #bullshit #fun #joke

Massive thanks to everyone who joined the Joshnet last week. We really appreciate your enthusiasm, and it has helped us proceed towards the next testnet
We were delighted it stayed up for so long. This was completely unexpected seeing as it was basically held together with string and rubber bands, so it’s a great demonstration of the robustness of the libp2p foundation that we are building upon.

We are thrilled to announce that we have just hit 100 followers on Mastodon! This is a huge milestone for us, and we couldn't be more excited about it. At a time when Twitter is no longer blind-friendly, Mastodon is emerging as the go-to platform for people who care about #accessibility. With its commitment to #openSource software and #decentralized networks, Mastodon is a breath of fresh air in a world dominated by closed systems and corporate control.
broke off the chains of matrix.org and made a new matrix account on a different servers, to give purpose to the decentralization
I find it hard to believe that this is happening. #Element was banned in India as a restriction against #decentralized and/or encrypted chat platforms. Knowing that the UK has something similar brewing, makes me realize that it's not just a silly joke.
At #JoinJabber we aim to grow sustainably. As part of that we put high standards for inclusivity and safety to all of the communities we collaborate with. You will never see us at a police conference asking for money for example. ;)
If that sounds like what you want you can join in https://joinjabber.org or host an #xmpp server next to your mastodon server https://joinjabber.org/tutorials/integration/mastodon/
@downey Well, I'm convinced really #decentralized, #MultiVendor / #MultiProvider solutions that work ain't on that list.
From #Zulip to #XMPP-#OMEMO & #IRC...
And I'm not even talking about #OnionShare...
The named ones are very much centralized.and most don't even offer full #SelfHosting at all...
I finally have a working #yacy search again. Am trying to see whether it suffices for most of my private searching needs.
Yacy is my default search engine in Icecat (Firefox) now.
What blocked me: too high average load, because I have too many cores — reported (and I have a workaround): https://github.com/yacy/yacy_search_server/issues/558
@atomicpoet @Natanox I confess I thought that all changes in the #Mastodon code - the ones that affect all #instances - had to pass through a #community vote among the most committed Mastodon devs.
Is it fair to say that the Mastodon network is #decentralized as a product, but not as a process?
@thelinuxEXP #PeerTube is the only proper alternative to centralized platforms like YouTube IMO. The issue is, as always, how to fund these things properly... 🙃 But at least you can read up on an instance's rules, to see if they moderate away horrible things or not. And you can block instances you don't like.
So... anyone got any ideas how we can fund PeerTube, and possibly the larger Fediverse, in a fair way? 🤔

Safe Network Update 04 May
Testnet time is here again! Join the first community testnet (joshnet) using our new architecture.
In other news, this week the team has been mostly engaged in tracking down node discovery anomalies. We don’t think these will be an issue with a full scale testnet but they can make testing on a smaller scale tricky. The main culprit seems to be the #Rust Tokio library.
It took a bit longer than we might have hoped, but here we have our first public testnet of the Safe Network code layered atop libp2p.
At the moment we have 25 nodes up, with around 1gb of storage available to each of them.

Very useful analysis from @mmasnick about #Mastodon, #BlueSky, and #nostr .. and #decentralized messaging in general.
#Decentralization is critical to prevent the kind of mess and chaos we are seeing with Twitter right now.. and have seen with other sites, too.
Day 177 and #Twitter users are surprised that #ElonMusk’s decision to remove #bluecheck validation is causing chaos and the creation of impersonation accounts. That could never have been predicted?
#Decentralized #SocialMedia is the solution for exposure to willful and arbitrary behavior by egomaniacal billionaires
Anybody else perplexed this happened? 😜

#Decentralized Social Media Rises as #Twitter Melts Down - #IEEE Spectrum https://spectrum.ieee.org/mastodon-social-media #Fediverse #Mastodon
#Decentralized Social Media Rises as #Twitter Melts Down #Mastodon is just the start—here comes the #Fediverse
News: We passed our second #milestone review with @dfinity, which releases the next $10K of our development grant. #BUIDLing the #trustless #decentralized #Factchecking #community the Internet needs. https://factland.org https://discord.gg/6HBxBBBK Check us out.
Mozilla is joining the #Fediverse with their own instance today:
@fediforum Right, if you were a geek looking for a startup kind of project right now, what’s there? I guess #AI, #metaverse and #decentralized #social.
Reusable #UI widgets based on #BlockProtocol or similar, with out-of-the-box data storage, streaming and API using a distributed actor-OCAP-RPC mechanism like @spritelyinst
And a GUI low-code tool for mixing, matching and connecting these widgets
Allowing anyone to rapidly develop task-tailored UIs with an out-of-the-box #decentralized network backend
Just don't let the capitalist system/money/crypto take over this dream
curious about #Decentralized #Identity (#DID) - anyone working in this space? I've followed it a bit over the years but still seems pretty far away. Am I wrong? Are you working on something?
Doesn't have to be (but can be) #web3 but I'll use the hashtag to widen the audience.
"Tumblr will add support for ActivityPub, the open, decentralized social networking protocol that today is powering social networking software like Twitter alternative Mastodon, the Instagram-like Pixelfed, video streaming service PeerTube, and others."

@stux yep that's the #mastodon #decentralized model gg :ablobcatrave:
How do we create a truly #decentralized forge network? 🛠️
How do we avoid a situation of few (or even one) huge public instances? 🦛
Why is that bad? Why does it happen anyway? How do we help ourselves collaboratively prevent it as a #community? 🧑🤝🧑
Let's gather collective wisdom and ideas here! 💡 🧠 ❤️
Forge federation is getting closer with each day. If we don't make explicit systems, the implicit old habits, systems and problems will take over. 🔥
Online schema migration for distributed, decentralized systems. I figured it out. Ha! You heard it here first.
It will take a while before there is running code. But I have confidence in the algorithm even if it hasn’t been coded. #distributed #decentralized .
Apropos nothing, it’s a good idea to sometimes take solitary walks at night.

...We intend to stick around for the long run and see where this Federated, openweb social movement may take us all.
From its beginning, its objective has been to provide a venue for creators of #indieweb, #fediverse, and #decentralized technology to cross-pollinate, as well as a place for regular people seeking a calmtech, openweb, sociable online existence....
Due to your generosity, we are in a stable and solvent position, and there is no danger of our demise....
