KDE devs will soon be receiving the Librem 5 dev kits. Look forward to Plasma Mobile running on the hardware chosen for @Purism 's open and privacy-protecting mobile phone.

@aral is there a simple way to temporarily disable Better on a page? For example, in general I want to block tracking on ups.com, but it also blocks the Bing map, which I wanted to check today. Easy enough to disable in Safari settings, of course.

It occurs to me that as late capitalism continues to unfold into cyberpunk neofeudalism, those of us who live a wandering life might find it useful to #selfhost all our shit on cheap little servers that can hang off a friend's cable modem, but be accessible from anywhere.

I'm not sure if/how projects like FreedomBone handle that latter bit, but I'm gonna see if I can get some useful services deployed over #Tor, because it's great at firewall punching.

Hey Mastodon fronds

I'm getting close to a technical implementation of the NZ Mastodon Project.

There'll be legal stuff to do after (CoC, ToS, insurance), but, it's getting to where it's feasible.

So.

Funding.

To do this, to make this work, I will have to charge money. Can we have a frank conversation about what's reasonable here, what's viable, what's even sensible?

My opening thoughts are NZD$10/mo.

What are yours?

How lovely folks. It’s Friday. You know what that means?

It’s another opportunity to reflect how awesome you are and how far you’ve come.

Embrace that’s shit. With both hands.

Mastopeeps: what do people like for collaborative wireframing? My team uses Invision's Freehand, but I'd love something open.

It feels good to start a branch of GNOME's #Epiphany web browser where the first commit is a big removal that kills the old, memory-hog ad blocker. Next up: add the new ad blocker, using #WevKit's built-in content extensions support.

The new code only needs to care about downloading the filtering rules and using the new API to compile and make WebKit use them.

For testing I have EasyList (what Ephy uses now) converted to the JSON format, and using @aral's Better ruleset is the final target 🧐

@ben
Only 40 hours to go in the fundraiser though, people have to be fast if they are interested in snagging a account!

I'm so old that when I was at university we still believed in the "semantic web".

Only two bug-free releases in the default install, in a heck of a long time!

The Pleroma project produces a FREE, multi-platform ActivityPub-based GNU Social-like social networking server. Our efforts emphasize portability, standardization, correctness, proactive security and integrated Finland memes. As an example of the effect Pleroma has, the popular federated emoji comes from Pleroma.

Pleroma is freely available from our download sites.
