Agenda:

  • Proofreading of grant proposal
  • Dev bounty: Generate gitea private keys
  • Find individuals & orgs to support grant application and/or federation in Gitea
  • Facts / articles that demonstrate the popularity of Gitea

“Diversity audit for the open-source FedeProxy project”. This doesn’t sit well with me. Very few people these days are excluded if their skills are good and also given for free. The irony is that the image on the linked page is of one male - same guy- when it could’ve included male and female and several different races and hair colors. Online, a person needn’t give their real name. Often, people don’t know what sex or nationality I am. They certainly don’t know who I have sexual fantasies about. People are also legally able to change their birth name (something I intend to do). One of my favorite writers, George Elliot, was actually female - and that was longgggg ago that she pulled that off wonderful trickery. Pushing ‘diversity’ in tech seems to imply that, in tech, people are excluded who have competitive skills. They aren’t. Getting those skills may be harder for some minorities, but once they get the skills, tech companies and orgs don’t discriminate and are very inclusive. Other industries probably discriminate, but not tech. This also seems to imply that Whitey is actively trying to suppress minorities and is therefore the enemy. I date outside of my race usually, so this really irks me. Content of character and skills seem fair to mention, but not diversity. It almost sounds like a salesman or politician saying, “You can trust me”. It has an element of cringe to it.

I guy pointed out that GitLab’s weakness was that it was hosted on Amazon servers. Maybe one of you tech-gurus can post info about how us tech-tards can know which sites are hosted by which servers. I’d like to avoid those. Also, which are influenced by PayPal or other payment sites (whether they like that over site or not, they still have the possibility of being controlled by payment companies like Visa or Mastercard, etc).

This is not always easy to tell, and requires investigation on a site-by-site basis. Sometimes you find such info in official blogs or other articles. Sometimes other devs run discover via their use or tools that they run. One way you sometimes can tell is by looking at cookies that are present on the website. They point to e.g. Cloudflare or Google domains, and you know the software uses stuff you’d like to avoid. Note, that the subject is a bit off-topic for this post.

I watch many FOSS videos on YT and, less often, on removedute or YT alternatives. I’d be more than glad to cut and paste a few short lines regarding Gitea in the comment section. Feel free to give me those lines. I could make up my own, but I am told I am not tactful enough also make too many typos or clumsy spelling errors.

why was the the name of that YT alternative removed? …oh… even though it has ‘ute’ after it, it is the name of a mother dog…how did the name of such a wonderful concept get made into a curse word? People hate a mother defending her progeny? the aggressiveness is situational only. i hate people.

That is clearly a false-positive, with bit-chute referring to bits of video, maybe?

Social Media Reimagined

This is a companion to Fediverse Futures on SocialHub to elaborate the Fediverse from high-level, non-technical perspectives, brainstorming our visions and dreams.

We need a more holistic approach to fedi development and evolution. We need product designers, graphics artists, UX / UI / Interaction designers, futurists and visionaries to join the dev folks. Everyone is encouraged to join here and enrich our views on what Fediverse can be with diverse and different viewpoints, and to stimulate brainstorming, creativity, thinking out-of-the-box and crazy, wild ideas.

Some guidelines

  • Choose a descriptive title that speaks for itself.
  • Be substantive in your comments and stay on-topic.
  • Treat others as you want to be treated, respectful.
  • Don’t be overly critical, we are just brainstorming.
