Yep, great stuff, and I call to anyone to contribute to @fedeproxy
and @gitea federation in any way they can. Participate on community and/or just spread the message far and wide.

So, if I see a post on a timeline from an alt account but don't see it on my main, and I didn't mute/block them… Did they block me?

From 2013 until 2020, the Dutch government operated SyRI, a social credit system.

A judge shut it down, because it was an unlawful breach of privacy.

This year, without making a lot of noise, they rebuilt it, but bigger.

A legal expert:
"It's even bigger, actually a kind of super-SyRI. Especially since commercial parties can also share in that data."

I use Keyoxide, developed by @yarmo.

• it’s fully open-source and can be self-hosted
• it relies on already existent OpenPGP identity proofs via notations — your identities never leave your OpenPGP key
• as such, one doesn’t need an account
• one can verify XMPP, IRC, Mastodon, Pleroma, Owncast, etc. New proofs are easy to implement

My favourite feature is the ability to use WKD to be able to use email addresses instead of fingerprints, like

The #Meta plot thickens! Turns out that #Facebook doesn't actually own the name Meta because it belongs to another company that's currently in stealth mode.

That didn't seem to stop Facebook from publicly announcing the name change and branding, quite the Zuck move. :blobpopcorn:

Meta (the real one) have posted a public letter about this on their front page. I'm linking the Archive copy because the front page will be eventually replaced by an actual website:

I got zero responses last time I hit up the Fediverse offering paid creative work, but I'm not giving up!

Some #Owncast features being worked on require iconography. And while we could use an icon library or something like Fiverr it'd be nice to work with an illustrator on the Fediverse who focuses on icons to have something that is custom.

This is paid work, so please boost and tell your friends.

Feel free to message me on the fediverse or email me:
