Just a little 'Thank You'...


@Hypolite Petovan , you make me proud and quite happy that I chose Friendica for my #distributed / #federated social platform! My sincerest gratitude to you for what you've given to the community, and your (seemingly) endless patience to help others. What a great dev and a fine human being! You make #Friendica one of the best open-source software experiences out there.

I hope to eventually be able to contribute something real to the project as well, but for now I just wanted to say 'thank you'!

Btw, I'm sure there are a lot of other people that deserve a huge thanks for Friendica, and I'm grateful to them as well - but @Hypolite Petovan is the person I have direct experience with, and has helped me out several times since I started running my Friendica instance. I certainly don't mean to minimize anyone else, though, and I realize OSS is a team effort! So thanks to everyone involved!

"The #Federation Fallacy"
(3 Mar 2019)

Throughout the free software community, an unbridled aura of justified mistrust fills the air: mistrust of large corporations, mistrust of governments, and of course, mistrust of proprietary software. Each mistrust is connected by a critical thread: centralisation.

Country flags are back!

Bad news


The node list still dies when viewing the main list or any of the lists with thousands of nodes. 😢 Hopefully will be able to fix at some point soon.

@Gruppo Linux Como @LIFO #Federated #FederatedAlternatives

 
Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I’m interested in #coop, #federated, #linux, #opensource, and #privacy.

 
So #Feneas stand application for #FOSDEM submitted 💪

If it is approved (11th November), we would be happy if various #federated web projects could provide us with some up to date information that we can present at the stand. Preferably also physical material, if possible, in the form of stickers, flyers, etc. Either delivered to the stand or mailed to someone who is coming. We would like to be able to provide people at FOSDEM with a good view of what the federated web consists of.

Will give a proper call out for info & materials if the stand is accepted. If you don't know what Feneas is, info here 😀
