“Demanding privacy from surveillance capitalists,” says Zuboff, “or lobbying for an end to commercial surveillance on the internet is like asking old Henry Ford to make each Model T by hand. It’s like asking a giraffe to shorten its neck, or a cow to give up chewing. These demands are existential threats that violate the basic mechanisms of the entity’s survival.”

Various screenshots from the #Minetest #SunbeamCity autonomous territory.

Quite a few settlements now utilising potential solar and hydro power sources. Finite resource extraction kept minimal. Plenty of food and technics in the commons. The diverse ecology is flourishing.

As we hope to open this up as an official Sunbeam project in the future, are they any additional mods folkx would like to try?

Here's our current world.mt (needs a little cleaning up):

Finally this happened!

#Friendica 2019.01 release now officially supports #activitypub out of the gate.

github.com/friendica/friendica

From their #changelong:

''The AP functionality was tested with Hubzilla, #Mastodon, #NextcloudSocial, #Osada, #PeerTube, with #Pixelfed and #Pleroma.''

Another bunch of users to interact with... a more viable alternative to FB and #Diaspora, because #activitypub (and #zot) is the future of decentralised social net.

Thank you guys,

some free software is "libre as in lucha libre":

it helps to make up a secret identity, because you're going to have to do battle with a bunch of masked chuds with opinions before you even get to wrestle the software itself

I got my RHCE! (RedHat Certified Engineer) Woohoo! :redhat: 🍻🎉🎊

Thanks to everyone who joined me on my latest journey through Deus Ex: Invisible War. Some of the political philosophy got a little heavy at times, but in the end I think we chose the lesser of the four evils....... or did we???

Such an underrated game.
