I can’t tell you how happy I am to get texts like these from friends. I’m so optimistic about the future of the #fediverse and always excited to talk about it.

The fediverse is still a tricky concept to explain though. I’d love to hear how you like to describe this gestures wildly at ActivityPub/Federation/Mastodon/Threads/AT Protocol/PeerTube to a friend.

@docpop I just like to compare it to email. It lets you connect with anyone regardless of their email address/username.

But the best part about it is that it lets you join and create communities that can be as independent or as interconnected as you want.

Fedilab, a "multifunctional Android client to access the distributed Fediverse" is now free on Google Play.

@HistoPol Yeah, I tried it too a while ago, don't particularly recall having issues, but I do prefer the simplicity of the official Mastodon app.

Hopefully the current version of the app handles things better. Definitely worth a look now that it's free.

@jake4480 Definitely nice to have a variety of apps to try!

"[...] the photograph [...] captures what Henri Cartier-Bresson called the "decisive moment" of an action or composition, it anticipates and insinuates rather than explicitly demonstrates violence, and it depicts what seems to be a vulnerable older woman confronting a young archetypal Neo-Nazi skinhead."

Okay, this makes me feel better about my own life choices.

"The people who buy music gear [...], I would say more than half of them are not really making music on it. They’re just collecting it and playing with it. [...]

They just buy the software, they play with the knobs, they listen to it for a second, and there’s no shame in it at all.

[...] it is a hobby one way or another."

@benjaoming Fair point!

Luckily, I only collect virtual instruments and samples, but your point stands.

Actually, it would be pretty cool if folks who do mostly just end up hoarding physical musical instruments would set up a kind of an instrument library where others could come in and try them out, or use them to record something, as some actual libraries let you do.

@botvolution Now that is a very accurate observation.

@benjaoming I would definitely love that!

The "Führerbunker" where Adolf Hitler cowardly committed suicide in 1945, is now a parking lot.

I finally got the nerve to ask OpenAI if it knew anything about me. It enthusiastically told me a bunch of wrong stuff, including that I stopped publishing RB in 2020 (no), that I had covid in 2020 (also no), that I wrote a couple of books I'm pretty sure don't exist, and that I have been inducted into the Internet Librarian Hall of Fame (which I'm also pretty sure does not exist, and which honor I would refuse on the grounds that I am not a qualified librarian)

@researchbuzz My one big takeaway from this is that we really need to set up an Internet Librarian Hall of Fame.

Eu gostei dessa ideia do Stefan de as instâncias bloquearem as imagens, pra todo mundo passar o dia contando só com as descrições, no Dia Mundial da Visão (que é em outubro).

Se rolar, vou aderir. Convido os demais admins brasileiros a ficarem atentos a essa oportunidade de chamar a atenção pra acessibilidade!

@stefan@stefanbohacek.online avatar

@mar @augustocc Perhaps. Still worth trying to do this on other instances!

stefan, to accessibility
@stefan@stefanbohacek.online avatar

Hm. I wonder if I can get any fediverse admins onboard to disable all images on their instance on the World Sight Day in October, so that only alt text shows up.

@stefan@stefanbohacek.online avatar

@christianp I'd definitely love to do this sooner! Definitely wouldn't hurt to do something like this more than once a year.

For now, I have to do a bit of research into how to best achieve this on a technical level.

stefan,
@stefan@stefanbohacek.online avatar

@Tealk Yeah, I'm going to have to do some research on this.

Hoping to have a blog post, or maybe even a dedicated site up soon with instructions.

stefan,
@stefan@stefanbohacek.online avatar

@chris Thank you, and thank you for sharing this!

I'll be setting up a new Mastodon instance to try out a few things, thank you for the suggestion!

stefan,
@stefan@stefanbohacek.online avatar

@HistoPol @hspmauli @mina @Gargron @tchambers Thank you!

Yeah, I like your idea too, it's interesting to consider two approaches, one where people do this voluntarily to raise awareness, and one where everyone is sort of forced to get a small taste of the experience.

I still have to do a lot of research on this, but there will definitely be cases where an instance can't or is not interested in participating, so a combination of these ideas would work really well.

stefan,
@stefan@stefanbohacek.online avatar

@LaurenCeleste Nice, thank you!

I'm working on a blog post, or a dedicate page, with more details on how this would be achieved on a technical level.

stefan,
@stefan@stefanbohacek.online avatar

@luca That makes a lot of sense, thank you!

stefan,
@stefan@stefanbohacek.online avatar

@LaurenCeleste Will do, thank you!

stefan,
@stefan@stefanbohacek.online avatar

@ErikUden Great, thank you!

Still looking into this. @luca had a great suggestion to modify the nginx config file, but I'm having trouble getting this to work.

I modified /etc/nginx/nginx.conf and added the following block inside the http directive:

https://gist.github.com/stefanbohacek/ca85adc8a22311094c9f219e3b899583

Still able to see images. Any ideas?

stefan,
@stefan@stefanbohacek.online avatar

@ErikUden @luca Hah, funny. I just have to find a way to break a bunch of fediverse servers.

Either way, thank you!

stefan,
@stefan@stefanbohacek.online avatar

@luca @ErikUden Ah, still no luck. But at least I know I'm on the right path, I'll keep poking around. Thank you!

stefan,
@stefan@stefanbohacek.online avatar

I think I figured out the folder permissions to pull this off?

Not much luck with the nginx config though, would really appreciate some help.

And of course, if you run a #pixelfed, #misskey, #firefish, or any other #fediverse server, I'd love to hear how you'd go about this.
