You know what I want out of Dat/IFPS/whatever? A shared calendar (say, family-wide, or workgroup-wide) that doesn't need a centralized server. And accessible on my phone, even when offline. Is something like that possible?

How to get people to use mastodon?

"Get off Facebook anyone? Fill up the new ranks? Try a no spy alternative? Support activists efforts for a respectful social media ethos?

Why don't we people jump on it? Are we already tired of social media? yet another account... or too much at home on Facebook and the others?

Are we waiting for the next tsunami news before we move away? Are we in dis belief that something can be done against the corporated giants?" (fb post...)

heads up, if for some ungodly reason you're still using facebook, theyre now starting to push spyware under the guise of a VPN on the ios app. gizmodo.com/do-not-i-repeat-do

Ok, preliminary site set up, but no real content as of yet. My goal for this weekend is to fill it up with some older posts from or old blogs

You know it's time to go to bed when you start making up your own version of "modern major general" ((I am the very model of an engineer electrical!))

@chrisaldrich Oooooh, there's a fantastic idea! I would have loved that when I was in university.

Oh man, what a weekend! Looks like this will be a very busy week.

Y'all remember DirectConnect? Kazaa? WASTE? Restroshare? You know, software where you could offer your entire media collection for share and people could browse and download as they liked?

What's the modern version of that, which

a) works, stably; and
b) is cross-platform at least to Linux and Windows?

I'm looking for work in #webdevelopment/#devops. If you know of a job opening that I might qualify for, or if you need work done in that area on a freelance basis, please let me know.
