In Osona Sud, Catalonia the distribution of Guifinet nodes is superdense. It's like the William Gibson saying that the future is here but not evenly distributed. Some areas of the world are already living in the future of decentralized user-owned network infrastructure.

If anyone says that mesh networks are impractical or don't scale to a municipal level then Catalonia is a good showcase of it working. Obviously not all of these thousands of nodes are highly tech-savvy anarcho-hackers, so this is something which can work "for the people".

Software is trending in the wrong direction. Decreased transparency, centralisation, and proprietary monopolies.

In this article I describe the 5 ingredients to ethical software:

- open data
- open source
- distributed deployment
- decentralised hosting
- end to end encryption

Let's make software less about profit, and more about people again.

You can use Matrix/Riot without an account (with a temporary nick, but no email/phone signup)

Interesting food for thought!

BTW if he isn't already I suggest monitoring error fare sites like where you can often find flights at 1/3 of the normal price

I've been developing this project little by little as well, still alpha quality but has a bunch of features I at least find useful:

I invite ALL federation developers to hop into #social on for conversations around the social Web. It's where a few discussions on #ActivityPub discussions occur.

I know that we have for this as well and I encourage the devs to use these places in conjunction to this one for conversations for historical and open discussion reasons.

Le format MHTML

si j'ai bien compris permet de réunir en un seul document un fichier html avec ses styles et ses images et ses scripts, sans se trimballer une page + un dossier). Sur le papier, c'est ouvert et c'est super pratique pourquoi c'est pas plus répandu ??

Ca pourrait faire la concurrence à l'infame Adobe et son PDF pour les documents riches... 🤔

@mike Which is weird since you can find most podcasts by typing "<title> podcast" into your favorite search engine.

All other decentralized things would benefit greatly from some kind of searchable recommendation sharing thingy ala

Hey kids when you're designing awesome decentralised stuff, don't forget discoverability. I mean podcasts, conceptually, are perfectly decentralised but when I ask someone about their podcast 90% of the time they tell me to look it up on iTunes.

@feoh @vertigo I agree that software is inherently volatile. In civil engineering there aren't too many layers above physical and chemical limitations, and we've explored those layers for thousands of years.

In software the foundations for building your software is more software. To some extent, physical limitations offer constraints, but mostly the constraints are mathematical and the potential variations inside those constraints are mindboggling.

Part of the reason we get anything done in software at all, is that we apply artificial restraints, mostly caused by arbitrary historical happenstance, and don't explore and change those foundations every time we build something new.

Sometimes brave souls do explore and recreate parts of the foundations, and then the whole craft needs to be re-evaluated again.

Proudly written in PHP, Pixelfed has embraced a UI driven development approach.

Users don't care if :pixelfed: is using the latest or coolest framework or fancy tech, they care about the experience and what they see or feel.

I'd love to see more "uncool" projects in the fediverse.

### Molecule

> Molecule provides support for testing with multiple instances, operating systems and distributions, virtualization providers, test frameworks and testing scenarios.

Woah I've really fallen in love with Molecule for developing #Ansible roles. Need to start adding it to all my roles 😍😍

"Mastodon is referred to as an alternative to Twitter. This is partly true. Actually, as a tool, it is incredibly powerful and its potential is endless. We are just seeing the emergence of a completely game changing social networking tool, so the best comparison is perhaps Twitter. As you play with it, you will see that it can be more powerful than any of the existing closed source social network applications."
