Matrix is a communication protocol. You can read a more detailed description here and I have found a video which an introduction below.

The Devon and Cornwall linux user group now have their IRC channel bridged to Matrix, this means that the channel #dcglug can be accessed by anyone who has either an IRC client, Matrix Client or connects to IRC via the web interface for example. This opens up the chat to far more people, which is a good thing.

Flockingbird

Flockingbird is a new project to build a privacy respecting, professional networking platform, similar to LinkedIn but without ads, tracking etc.

As it is early days, you can follow the project on Mastodon

Or find more information at:-

I have submitted some ideas for this project. It is nice to be able to do this and make contributions, however small.

#YearOfTheFediverse,#flockingbird,#decentralised,#professional,#networking

This will be a most welcome concept.

What is Peertube?

Peertube is a video sharing platform, similar to youtube, but with a focus on privacy and decentralization. As Peertube uses Activity pub then content can be shared and federated to other services within the Fediverse.

The video below provides a good explanation of what Peertube is.

Feel free to get in touch if you need more help on this, details are on my contact page.

Update 8/1/2021

SnapAs : Adding photos to WriteFreely Blogs

As this blog is powered using WriteFreely, I have just found another service that is designed to complement adding pictures to blogs, making this process very simple.

SnapAs allows you to drag and drop a photo and provide the markdown code so that you just copy / paste in this to your blog.

There is a tutorial and further explanation here.

The video is hosted on Peertube which is a federated and decentralised video sharing platform. There is a video here to explain more about this.

Hope this post is useful.

Mastodon

mastodon logo

Over the past few months, the social network Mastodon, has seen a big increase in the number of new users joining.

Mostly people from networks Twitter, unhappy, mostly with censorship. In late 2019 there was a big migration from users in India.

Unlike with current mainstream (or should we just say old fashioned) social media. Mastodon is decentralised, so what does this mean?

In essence, there is no central control, just a development model. Mastodon is a network made up on independently owned server instances. These can all communicate with each other, thanks to a protocol called Activity Pub.

Mastodon, forms part of what is called the Fediverse. This numerous other social media instances such as Friendica ( which I am on), that also communicate with each other. The clever part is that the different social networks can communicate with each other.

With the Fediverse, privacy is important, you won't find:

  • User tracking
  • Tracking of Likes and shares
  • Data collection
  • Data sale, abuse and misuse of personal information
  • Suggestions of friends based on interest
  • Advertising

The fediverse, is what the community make it. Users post content, others, who find it interesting will comment, and contribute to the conversation.

During the UK general election campaign, the mainstream news media was taken over by election news. Social media played a big part in campaigning as politicians tried to convince the electorate they were the people to vote for.

Politics has not caught up yet. Not sure if that is a good or bad thing.

You can find topics of interest by searching for tags, which accompany posts.

If you think it is time to #DeleteFacebook or #DeleteTwitter then feel free to come over to a better way of doing things. There are alternatives to other services too, such as Google, Youtube, Instagram. All these alternatives federated so content can be shared on the Fediverse too.
