Interview with Ramachandra dom, CPM Polit bureau Member –

Ab Juli wird das neue #Volla22 ausgeliefert. Die Produktion läuft schon hoch. Wir freuen uns auf den Zuwachs. Und die Kampagne dazu läuft auch klasse dank eurer und Ihrer Unterstützung. #danke #vollaphone #privacy

This round of internships started and Israel Galadima' blog post. I'm a mentor this round too, along with @akshay for improving and integration.

Michael is also working on the same project with Israel.

This will allow yarn to consider apt installed node modules to satisfy dependencies when matching versions are available. Rubygems and bundler do this already for ruby dependencies.

The new #gajim #xmpp client is looking really good. The devs made a great effort of re-designing a lot of the UI/UX. Furthermore, this runs on Linux, Windows and Mac OS.

I have decided to commit to a limit on the maximum number of instances or percentage of the Mastodon network that I will host on

You can read about it here:

@akshay It's the good old "how much time to spend sharpening the axe, and how much to spend cutting trees" problem. In order to do anything, you need power. The more power you have, the more you can do. But when you do things, you are not getting more power. So in the end, those who have the most power are those who only focus on getting more power, and not on actually doing anything useful with it.


On May 15, 1936 Ambedkar published undelivered written speech called ‘Annihilation of Caste’.

“I do not believe that we can build up a free society in India so long as there is a trace of this ill-treatment and suppression of one class by another.”


The reason I say I get "sucked into" these discussions is that, despite the rhetorical overlap, I've sensed a significant ideological divergence between my position and the dominant web3 ethos. In general, I would say that I think there are only a few circumstances in which markets produce good incentives and distributions, and that these depend heavily on publicly accountable governance that set up their rules.

ActivityPub Overview updated. I added GNUsocial and a cc by-sa license. 🙂

It has been almost 5 months since I started running a Snikket server. I only had to update once and that was very easy. I faced no issues as of now on the server side. The uptime has been 100%.

This is a blog post I have written on my experience

I found @snikket_im project chatroom as very helping and welcoming. They try their best to help newbies in self-hosting, which usually takes a lot of patience.

Events in Sri Lanka have ominous portends for India. How long can you distract people from bread & butter issues by communal hate and polarisation

@clacke @federico3 @bekopharm @wolf480pl @Sandra @lrvick @technicallypossible @ruffni @Johann150 @RyunoKi Personally I very much prefer to live in a world where there are two layers in the distribution of software (libraries).

One where everybody can upload, and I as a moderately competent software person can go to discover new things, review them (both as code and as maintainership situation), decide whether or not I want to trust them.

And another where I as a tired person who needs the software|library *now* can go and get things (and trust automatic updates) knowing that somebody has already given them at least a bit of review, that there are automatic systems in place to keep checking that it keeps working, that there are procedure in place to substitute the people involved in this review if they disappear, if there are security patches I will get them applied without having to upgrade to a completely new version at a random time and basically all the things that I would have to do personally to safely use in production code taken directly from the first layer.

This is another example of in action. Even if original developers don't care about a feature, we can still get that feature with help from any other developer or even via crowd funding by users. See
