I made this post this morning, and I'd like to make a followup:

I'd like to ask people here if anyone know of a good use-case for 5G. Something that would be an actual, measurable improvement compared to today.

So far I have only heard a single one, and that is that supposedly latency will be much better, making online gaming possible. What kind of latency can I expect to see?

Other than the ability to play fortnite on mobile (which, as far as I understand, people already do?), in what way is 5G actually going to be real gamechanger on the level of what marketing is claiming it will be?

Call for #contribution

( for the #Glossary of #decentralised #technosocial systems ( - a project aimed at building a shared vocabulary on the social, technical,
economic, political aspects of decentralised, distributed or sovereign technologies.
We invite contributions on the emancipatory, counter-hegemonic, subversive potential of digital technologies at the intersection of
computer science, law philosophy, social sciences. The Glossary is a long-term collaborative project which will keep evolving over time,
enriched periodically with more terms and open to new contributors. Its scope is to build a foundational vocabulary for academic and
non-academic discourse on technologies, sociotechnical systems and practices of decentralisation.
We invite proposals for new terms in the form of short abstracts (max. 200 words) to be later developed into a short glossary entry. The
compiled entries will be collected in a special section of the Internet Policy Review. (

For expression of interest email to: - by the 21st of March

People getting annoyed because Mastodon is not an advertising platform for influencers, in another "Mastodon is crumbling again" style article.

Being unsuitable for advertising, and avoiding the shallow nonsense of Twitter is the better way forward. The more that irritates neoliberals, the more it's a sign that something is working.

Rocky Linux is a new not-yet-released distro created to fill the gap when CentOS stops being a stable community drop-in replacement for RHEL by the end of this year. But it's more than just that, and this was a really great episode to listen to: (audio and transcript)

They're taking all the lessons learned from 20 years of CentOS organizing and open source community organizing in general, and applying it to the new project.

Do you want to run your own Fediverse instance, but don't want to do the tech stuff?

✅ Managed hosting services let you create your own instances without technical knowledge. They handle the tech stuff behind the scenes, you do the rest.

Google is a "cornerstone sponsor" of FOSDEM this year, which is being run entirely on Matrix, accessible on Android via Element, which has just been pulled from Google's Play Store. FOSDEM is in a week. This all makes perfect sense.

Hey @marove, schau mal, Du hast da irgendwas verpasst

♲ OK, time for me to make an apology.

I hadn't used XMPP for quite a while. While I liked it last time I used it there were issues keeping connections and the clients were less than stellar.

While the desktop clients for Linux are still a little shaky I can recommend Quicksy (thank you @Array for the recommendation).

I've been crabby when people recommend XMPP because I didn't realize that folks have taken XMPP from an early 21st century protocol to a joy to use.
