Hi everyone!

ForgeFed is a project aiming to define a protocol and a vocabulary for federation of project hosting and collaboration platforms (forges), and get it implemented in the existing forges such as GitLab CE, Gitea and so on.

Federation is based on ActivityPub with some tweaks and new vocabulary :)

I'm working on a demo, implementing federation in a forge called Vervis. Earlier today I deployed 2 test instances for this! More details and links soon :)

I'm doing a school assignment about how I'm minimizing my carbon footprint by building lighter websites. I'm in favor of these practices, but I'm not so clear on how it actually helps the environment. I would appreciate some input on this.

Hi guys! A friend of mine asked if it is feasible in 2021 to use laptops running Linux in ISO27001 (and 27002) certified companies.
In theory, it is possible, but in practice, I'm a bit lost; they need monitoring tools, device management, possibly centralized policy enforcing, but I'm curious about the best solution for Desktop, i.e. to make a remote wipe of a device, enforce policies that block USB ports, provision software, control access etc. etc
Looking for advice 😃

For the young folks on my feed. Definitely DO have fun with your early years. It's important, but also recognize that you have a stamina super power that you almost certainly WILL lose as you age. Choose wisely. This doesn't mean have no life and spend evey waking moment improving yourself, just maybe give your future self half a thought around how you're spending those late nights :)
