#federation

Hey, long time no see!

I am now more active on #Mastodon as fdavidcl@mstdn.io, just in case anyone wants to follow my stuff over there.

Diaspora just seems less active lately and there are even people I personally know on Mastodon so it's more likely that I'll keep that other account updated. I hope that both networks will federate in the future though. In the meantime, have a great time anywhere in the #fediverse!

federation v0.12.0 released

#Python #federation now includes more support for the upcoming #diaspora protocol breaking changes and also includes support for the new Contact entity type. Additionally, legacy sharing/following Request entity has fixes.

Repository: https://github.com/jaywink/federation

Changelog:

Backwards incompatible changes

  • Removed exception class NoHeaderInMessageError. New style Diaspora protocol does not have a custom header in the Salmon magic envelope and thus there is no need to raise this anywhere.

Added

  • New style Diaspora public payloads are now supported (see here). Old style payloads are still supported. Payloads are also still sent out old style.
  • Add new Follow base entity and support for the new Diaspora "contact" payload. The simple Follow maps to Diaspora contact entity with following/sharing both true or false. Sharing as a separate concept is not currently supported.
  • Added _receiving_guid to all entities. This is filled with user.guid if user is passed to federation.inbound.handle_receive and it has a guid. Normally in for example Diaspora, this will always be done in private payloads.

Fixed

  • Legacy Diaspora retraction of sharing/following is now supported correctly. The end result is a DiasporaRetraction for entity type Profile. Since the payload doesn't contain the receiving user for a sharing/following retraction in legacy Diaspora protocol, we store the guid of the user in the entity as _receiving_guid, assuming it was passed in for processing.

Federation is the Future

>Social media have become an integral part of our lives. They are, in many cases, our primary means of social interaction. We meet new friends, keep up with old friends, plan our events, get our news, and share our lives via social media. While this is enormously convenient, it has had the effect of giving control of our digital lives -- and the personal, private information associated with them -- to a tiny handful of companies.

>Fortunately, there is an alternative.

"The Next Challenge for Open Source: Federated Rich Collaboration", 10.05.2017

"When over a decade ago the file sync and share movement was started by Dropbox and later joined by Google Drive, it became popular very fast. Having your data available, synced or via the web interface, no chance of forgetting to bring that important document or use USB sticks -- it was a huge step forward. But more than having your own data at hand, it enabled sharing and collaboration. No longer emailing documents, no longer being unsure if you got feedback on the latest version of your draft or fixing errors that were already fixed before. Usage grew, not only among home users but also business users who often used the public cloud without the IT departments' approval." #FrankKarlitschek Frank #Karlitschek

[DE] Suche PHP-Entwickler und Designer! Wer hat Lust, bei einem Pilotprojekt basierend auf The Federation mitzumachen? Langfristiges Ziel ist es, ein Netzwerk und eine erweiterbare Plattform aufzubauen, auf der sich Freiberufler und (meist genossenschaftliche) Betriebe mit ökologisch-nachhaltiger und sozial verantwortlicher Ausrichtung untereinander und mit ihren Anwendern und Kunden vernetzen können. Aus verschiedenen Gründen bisher internet-technisch oft wenig aktiv, gibt es in diesen Kreisen ein wachsendes und großes Interesse an freier und quelloffener (weil "nachhaltige") Software sowie Datenhaltung weit weg von den heutigen Tech-Giganten. Ein erster Schritt wird sein, hubzilla oder das zot-Protokoll bei bereits vorhandenen Web-Präsenzen möglichst nahtlos einzubinden. Finanzielle Mittel sind vorhanden. [/DE]

[EN] Looking for PHP developers and designers! Who would like to participate in a pilot project based on The Federation? Long-term goal is to build a network and extensible platform on which freelancers and (mostly cooperative) firms with ecologically-sustainable and socially responsible orientation can connect with each other and their users and customers. Due to various reasons as yet not very active with internet tech, in these circles there's a growing and big interest in free and open source (because "sustainable") software as well as keeping their data far away from today's tech giants. A first step will be to integrate the zot protocol or hubzilla into already existing web presences as seamlessly as possible. Funds are available. [/EN]

GNU Social isn't for me

To replace Facebook in my life, I self-hosted an instance of Diaspora then Friendica (from where I'm writing right now), and I thought I could self-host a GNU Social instance to better communicate with Mastodon accounts.

However, I quickly realized that I wouldn't be able to use it for a simple reason: my timeline was filled with replies to conversations I wasn't a part of. The ratio signal/noise is then extremely low. I've been told it's a feature of the OStatus protocol, which means it won't get fixed anytime soon.

At Friendica we support OStatus but we mitigate the clutter by threading conversations and trying to ignore replies that don't concern us. It doesn't work completely reliably, but for me it already is heaps better than the constant chatter I couldn't make sense of in GNU Social.

To celebrate the new coming up #NodeInfo version, which improves slightly but still falls short for being a flexible way of describing server metadata, I updated my alternative version draft a bit. The spec now gives recommendation on how to expose metadata from #ActivityPub implementers, which the original NodeInfo is not suitable for (due to dependence on /.well-known and multiple versioning).

https://github.com/jaywink/nodeinfo2

Comments welcome :) WIll implement in the-federation.info soon.

"With no adult in the room to ban or verify users, plus the added confusion of duplicate usernames with different domains, Mastodon is likely to be a hotbed of impersonation, at least in certain pockets."

*sigh* Yes seems only us decentralization-nerds deserve our freedom.

(On a side note, I guess network-wide unique usernames would be possible, even without a full-blown #blockchain)

Alert to podmins running older versions

If you are running a version of diaspora*'s software earlier than v0.6.3.0, please read the following important notice:

Our next major version, 0.7.0.0, will include our new federation protocol. This will greatly improve federation in the network and beyond. However, its introduction will break communication with pods running older software.

Full forward-compatibility with the new protocol was introduced in 0.6.3.0. If you are running any version older than this, please update to the latest version to make sure your pod will still be a full part of the network when v0.7.0.0 is released.

Updating is simple and will only take a few minutes. If you are updating from 0.5.x or earlier, there are extra steps; instructions can be found in our wiki.

You can read the full message about this change in this post.

Greets! :)

Diapod.Net received some long overdue upgrades and maintenance this weekend. Our in-house Linux box received a small RAM upgrade, the OS, Diaspora and all it's supporting software are once again up to date.

Active Pods housekeeping script was backlogged and removed over 50 pods when fixed. All these pods are believed to be off-line but please do let me know if your pod got removed and is still in fact available.

Active Map remains unavailable but i do still plan on fixing that eventually. Thank you! Happy Easter!

Mastodon Is Like Twitter Without Nazis, So Why Are We Not Using It?

I quit Twitter to join a kinder, nicer, decentralized open source version of Twitter.

I have been on Twitter since 2008, accumulating nearly 100 thousand tweets and an inexplicable following of 42 thousand people.

I tweet a lot, and I tweet often. My engagement is high. I drive decent traffic.

I have been called "good at Twitter." I am not sure this is a correct assessment. Jack in the Box sells 554 million tacos a year. This does not make the tacos "good" by any reasonable measure.

Researchers find a 120 Million Year Old #Map?

The #Dashka #stone or also referred to as the Map of the Creator is a stone tablet of unknown origin that was discovered in the #village of #Chandra in #Bashkortostan, #Russian #Federation. It is believed to be around 120 million years old.

Researchers from the Bashkir State University have studied this ancient artifact that is believed to depict a highly detailed map of a specific area of the Ural Mountains, Bashkiria, which has not changed significantly in millions of years. This ancient map is done on a scale 1 : 1.1 km.

According to studies, this one-ton-slab is made up of three levels. According to Professor Chuvyrov, this stone slab was made artificially and did not originate in nature alone. According to studies performed, the Dahska Stone or stone of the creator has the following characteristics:

The first layer of the Dashka stone consists of 18 centimeters of cement or ceramic based on dolomite. The second layer is “made” of diopside glass; It is made approximately of one inch, enriched with silicon, according to researchers; to provide picture strength. The third porcelain layer has several millimeters. According to scholars this might have been placed in order to create diffused light, to illuminate the stone slab, but also to protect the slab from external impact thanks to its calcium-porcelain composition.

But wait a minute, 120 million years old? Well this is the part where most of us that read about it get skeptical. According to research, scientists were able to date the Dashka stone thanks to a pair of ancient shells locked into the slab that confirmed the age. Before finding these shells, they believed the Dashka stone to be around 3000 years old. When the shells were discovered is where the story gets interesting. The age of one of the shells – Navicopsina munitus of the Gyrodeidae family is believed to be 500 million years old. The second shell that belongs to the Ecculiomphalus princeps of the Ecculiomphalinae subfamily – is believed to be 120 million years old, and this was the age that was accepted by the researchers.
