To free ourselves from feudal identity fiefdoms, we must simultaneously de-centralize and re-centralize identity.

Decentralize ownership.
Recentralize agency.

By de-centralizing the ownership of identity away from platform monopolies and back to individuals, we can re-centralize the agency of personhood.

The central authority of ones digital identity must be the individual. That's how we regain our digital sovereignty.

@erlend I'd love to hook this sort off solution into the ai horde and use our kudos system to incentivize people making such accounts instead of use oauth2 providers. If you're up for a collaboration, I could start working on it asap.

Also the invite for the matrix doesn't work for the me as it says I'm not a member of prerequisite spaces or rooms

@erlend Could you point me out to information on Rauthy in the context of python?

HIGHLY recommend Fediblock for user '@MKULTRADiamond' as they're tagging random users and spamming porn with no CW. Receipts attached in the screenshot.

@BeAware You can subscribe to the censures of people you trust on fediseer btw. That's the whole point ;) You can even filter them.

Man it would be so cool if there was a support network who handle all the stuff people are incapable of doing which would cause massive impact to their lives. I spend almost all my free time coding to improve the global commons. It would be great if someone who gets value out of my work would help me in turn with state paperwork. 😢

@dw_innovation Since you're posting mostly articles, do consider (cross-)posting to as well, as it's way more set for these sort of posts. You can even post in to lemmy from mastodon by @-ing the community you want.

“In a drastic attempt to protect their beachfront homes, residents in Salisbury, Massachusetts, invested $500,000 in a sand dune to defend against encroaching tides. After being completed last week, the barrier made from 14,000 tons of sand lasted just 72 hours before it was completely washed away”

I'm facepalming so hard today. On the discussion of whether should start supporting plugins in order for more developers to be able to inject the extra functionality they need, I have a rust fanboi insisting that no, the better approach is to make every admin who needs this compile lemmy from scratch to add the extra functionality. According to them this can be totally as easy as plugins.

@damon This discussion has been ongoing on for a day now. I've been trying in vain to make them see reason. But no, they just now effectively argued that Godot Engine doesn't really need plugins since modules exist...

db0,
@db0@hachyderm.io avatar

@mkutz1492 @damon Plugin, you download and plug into the code in runtime. Think firefox add-ons or wordpress plugins.

modules you have to compile along with the software. Godot Engine uses this to add, say, support for other programming languages or very low-level changes to its C++ code.

@db0@hachyderm.io avatar

Oh gawds, now they say lemmy administration should be more like nixos and we should develop that instead of developing a plugin framework. Then we can recompile compile everything easy-peasy.

If you haven't heard, sadly, , one of the popular “groups” platform, is shutting down “probably” on February 29th.

In an email they sent to admins, the owner and developer can no longer support https://chirp.social financially as they failed to find a new job after they were laid off by last year.

So, if you have a Chirp.Social groups, either move to (https://a.gup.pe) (as suggested by Chirp.Social), or if I may, to (https://fedia.io), an [flagship] instance.

This reminds us the importance of having a built-in groups feature, and one where the groups feature actually federates.

Back in 2008, when the was born, we did have a built-in federated groups in / (today known as ). We used bang (!) instead of at (@). A built-in groups feature is more stable as established instances can host them.

Today, we have and (as well as -based instances) to fill in that, as groups is a built-in feature in those software products. It's just a matter of finding an instance that's open to hosting groups for any topic for the ActivityPub protocol.

That said, any Friendica, Hubzilla, Streams-based instances you suggest for groups?

db0,
@db0@hachyderm.io avatar

@youronlyone and are all about federated groups. Lemmy also uses the ! Notation

Other groups attack a marginalized group from a place of privilege.

Marginalized group bands together basically against the world and starts pushing back.

Other groups: "how dare you!"

You don't need to approve of the methodology or tactics (though there can be questions here), but rejecting the banding together is telling.

@hrefna Anything that threatens the "Divide and Conquer" model is explicitly and implicitly attacked. First with propaganda, then with violence.

I am not the easiest person to love here on fedi and now that I’ve seen really horrible accusations flying back and forth over The Bad Space I’m wondering what ya’ll say about me behind my back.

Like I know the pro-genocide crowd has been stalking me and gossiping about how anti-Semitic I am but hopefully that’s it.

Do we have a heuristic scanning service we can hook into with a REST API to tell us if a message/comment is spam or not, or is this another thing I need to build myself? Thinking of something like akismet but not available only for wordpress.

I'm doing a ton of work, and I notice this is even necessary for us as well https://www.vox.com/culture/2024/2/1/24056883/tiktok-self-promotion-artist-career-how-to-build-following

A ton of the successful FOSS projects I see have dedicated people doing social media all the time. @reduz from is micro-blogging constantly (on Ex-Twitter) which is a great help for keeping people talking about Godot.

But when you're a small project, its a ton of extra work with a skillset a lot of us are not at all comfortable with.

db0,
@db0@hachyderm.io avatar

Like, I'm good at development and I love doing it. I enjoy making things that help others for the sheer joy of creation. I could do it all day, every day. But if I want to do that, I have to develop skills that have nothing to do with FOSS development. Nothing to do with even managing it. I have to develop things one needs to be an "influencer", or for work in marketing. This is antithetical to the specialization we should be aiming at as a society.

db0,
@db0@hachyderm.io avatar

@JustinH I agree. I don't think it's a "tech-bro thing" to say. Not everyone is meant to be a bubble social media person. Some of us are autistic nerds who are happy to be shut in a basement and code all day without talking to anyone. Likewise there's visual artists and authors who just want to stay in their Atelier/office and create.
