It's finally here, teasing is over:

I'm excited to launch today!

solution for easy encryption, signature verification and decentralized identity proofs!

I've been in favor of but I never had something to offer as an alternative. Now I do :)

Finally checked up on @keyoxide and they've done a great job! I dropped them a donation and you should too -- just after you set up your profile.

@Cambria CC @unicornfarts You have to find a mix of using your time And you can have great discussions on even with some :ablobcateyesflip:

I'm testing out the new Brave search. It was pretty much a no brainer to replace Bing as the b shortcut in Vivaldi. Looks nice so far. It'll be interesting to see how search compares to more established engines like DDG.

Libera is a week old, and we've come strong out the blocks. Thank you to our 20,000 users for your support, enthusiasm, and patience.

I've written a little about our first week and some of the projects we host here:


A tale of two IRC networks:

#Freenode: kicked us out of our channels, harassed one of our ops on their home page, made supposedly "draft" policy changes to permit hate speech

#LiberaChat: participated in *our* forum to address questions about governance and non-profit structure and asked for feedback on improvements: <>

Can you even call yourself a sysadmin if you don't use a 19" server rack to store your clothes?

What other open source platforms do you know about that lets you share content?

I am happy to reveal that a non-profit legal entity for Mastodon, Mastodon gGmbH, is in the process of being entered into the German company register.

For context, I have been operating as a sole proprietor so far.

It's been in the works for 8 months but I didn't want to announce anything until everything was finalized just in case it didn't work out. Yesterday, I paid in the starting capital.

It wouldn't be possible without the help and advice of @mellifluousbox. More to follow in blog form.
