I really wanted to publish this week's @librelounge but I'm in Israel for the week (landed earlier today) and I won't be able to edit the show by Saturday. I'm really sorry all, but I will try to get next week's out on time if I can find the time.
Been running the #Feneas server on 3 for a while, no problems 🤘
RT @matrix: Folks, finally it's here. Synapse 0.34.0 - Python 3 recommended for production. This is a big one, with huge improvements in CPU and RAM usage. Thanks for everyone that helped us test it. https://matrix.org/blog/2018/12/20/synapse-0-34-0-released/
Traveling today and tomorrow so won't have time to release the latest episode of @librelounge but stay tuned!

I've made a really simple tool for searching your outbox.json (Mastodon archive) file. It's all browser-based and all data stays on your computer — it's not uploaded to the cloud!
There's lots of room for additional features so feel free to suggest some! 💚
I am constructing a ‘Christmas Ad’ which will compile videos of young people asking for one thing for Christmas – a future. I would like to have young people from all over the world (speaking in their native language) about how climate change will affect them and why they care. [...] Each video needs to finish with ‘for Christmas I want one thing; a future’.
[...] Please send me your video by wetransfer to firstname.lastname@example.org
PS Record in landscape, not portrait – thank you!
This is why you shouldn't let a neural net mix you drinks.

I recently got insight on how social networks spread recently. I told some friends (who are not on Signal) that a group I was forming would be on Signal. They joined. No hesitation or complaints- they just joined.
Trying to convince someone that the Free alternative is better doesn't work nearly as well as simply being on the new platform exclusively. People join so they're not left out.
Back in the GTalk days, you could talk to your entire Google contacts list via federated XMPP.
So even back then I had way more contacts on XMPP than GNUSocial or Identica.
Google played a large role in killing off XMPP usage and the day they announced sunsetting GTalk was when I realized they're just another embrace-extend-extinguish monopolist.
Society needs self-hostable, scalable and functional alternatives to surveillance capitalist systems of manipulation and censorship.
@emacsen @librelounge @cwebber I really took to heart some of the stuff you guys were keying into about unintentionally alienating people through shared culture. I think a lot of times that has been an impediment to my own learning. Going into my project I had that in mind, but not to the extent that you talked about. It made me really examine how much I was doing that. The rest of the show was awesome too but that is the thing that really stuck for me in practice.
