Political federated aggregator: a project

A few beginning points.
Much of the consensus building and of the political communication
takes place on social networks, according to rules which are
incorporated in the structure of proprietary social networks:
sponsorship, bubbles, building of identity, hate, narcissism, and
The (albeit often only shown) activists’ protagonism on social network
has become a practice of dissemination of political messages and an
important element of contents in the form of identification, which
often feeds identity-imposing narratives and hate speech. The analysis
of social network interactions [big data] provides feedbacks to
communicators which have the access to. With the means of these
feedbacks, communicators can build a custom argumentative narrative,
which is marred by an oversimplification of the numerical analysis.

Notre-Dame de Paris : Un toit c’est donc un droit ?

Un chef-d’œuvre du patrimoine mondial qui subit un incendie, c’est triste. Mais tout de même, n’y a-t-il pas un deux poids deux mesures qui devrait indigner un peu plus ? :

#AL #AlternativeLibertaire #Communiqué #Social

My brain was feeling a bit beat up, so I logged off Facebook. The new of the fire at Notre-Dame was heartbreaking enough, but then I started seeing comments snarking on people of faith, and memes made from Disney's animated "Huncback..." movie.

I don't know. I had just had enough. My feed was an endless scroll of tragedy, snark, and recycled crap. It might be time for an FB break. I need to explore #Diaspora more. It's nice to just scroll through my stream here and not see all the algorithm-generated ads and posts.

Mine is a troubled, wearied head. Probably best to lay it down and get some sleep.

A good night to you, #Diaspora.

Découvrez ces incroyables photos d’un énorme écureuil multicolore en Inde

Lorsque vous entendez le mot “écureuil”, vous avez probablement l’habitude d’imaginer un petit animal brun ou gris, plutôt mignon mais qui ne dégage pas forcément quelque chose de particulier. En bref, un animal assez banal. Mais cela n’est pas forcément le cas pour celles et ceux qui connaissent déjà le magnifique écureuil géant de l’Inde, d’autant plus avec ces spécimens particulièrement colorés récemment photographiés par Kaushik Vijayan.

Lorsque le photographe amateur Kaushik Vijayan a publié sur Instagram des photos d’écureuils géants de Malabar (Ratufa indica), les clichés ont rapidement séduit le web.

Vijayan a pris ces photos alors qu’il se trouvait dans le district de Pathanamthitta en Inde, à la pointe sud-ouest du sous-continent. Une fois publiées sur son compte Instagram, les images sont rapidement devenues virales.

We all wonder how large the open and free social media "federation" --- aka the Fediverse -- really is. This post gives you an indication of places where there seems no detectable presence of servers running fediverse social media protocols.

These snapshots are a graphical representation of countries with servers (or their proxies) that my nodes has interacted with in some form. My node is an open node (with a relatively small number of users by Friendica standards), but has been running for several years.

On Article13

This day makes me really sad. Not just because #Article13 passed and what effect it will have on the #internet at large. But because I'm not sure if my motivation to build #federated #social web tools will be very high if those tools will be hindered by legal stupidity out from the #EU today.

Die Openbook Alpha ist vor einigen Tagen gestartet. Heute kam meine Einladung an. Hier ist ein kurzer Blick auf mein Profil.

#Openbook Alpha started a couple of days back. Today my invitation arrived. Here's a short glimpse at my profile page


Es ist wie gesagt eine Alpha Version und dementsprechend wirkt vieles noch unfertig. Mein erster Eindruck fällt zwiegespalten aus und ich hoffe sie haben sich mit der Entscheidung, die Alpha und ebenso die Beta früher zu starten, nicht übernommen. Im derzeitigen Zustand ist Openbook weit davon entfernt eine Alternative für andere soziale Netzwerke zu sein.

It's an alpha version as I said before and accordingly a lot of things still appear unfinished. My first impression is split and I hope they didn't take it over with the decision to start the alpha and the beta earlier. In its current state, Openbook is far from being an alternative for any other social network.

Which websites featured on the Federation have the worst privacy?

My last post highlighted how ticking the OEmbed box to add a website picture to a post can compromise Federation users if it contains a tracker.



I also mentioned tools, like Disconnect, we could use to detect websites which track their users. In this post I reveal some of the most popular reference websites on the Federation with low privacy and high tracking rates.

I believe Federation users should consider not embedding, or at least warning their readers about the surveillance techniques carried out by these sites.

A Princeton University study identified almost a million websites that track their users. Here are just 5 examples of websites whose stories are commonly quoted on the Federation:
