NOTE ON BUGBOUNTY

At this time DSFGS doesn't recommend people advertise that that are offering a BugBounty in cryptocurrency online. Knowledge of the BugBounty can to be restricted to the physical flyer with a link to the provider's online presence. This provides some 'security by obscurity'. Not a recommended form of security, of course, but it adds up. An entrant would do well double-check that the provider really is offering the BugBounty, in a DM for example.

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

Some really good tips here https://runyourown.social/

Guide to the fediverse

With the Fediverse expanding it is really nice to have some great resources to explain how both the Fedivese ad in this case Mastodon work. This explanation is from torresjrjr

There is also a video on Peertube below.

More resources will be posted shortly, in the mean time you can sign up here

After which this website useful to help you find people with similar interests.

#fediverse,#mastodon,#ActivityPub,#guide.

I joined Mastodon social network last year. I am now reposting this guide to signing up and getting started.

Firstly you need to go to join mastodon where you will be presented with the following:-

mastodon1

Clicking on Get Started actually takes further down the page to:-

mastodon2

Where you can select from one of the many instances available, your choice may be influenced by:-

  • Geographical location
  • Interests
  • Number of users on a particular instance

Or some other reason.

I decided to go for quto.org as this is a STEM related instance. So clicking on the signup link.

signupscr

Filled in the credentials. After which I am asked to confirm. You will be asked to agree to some terms and conditions too.

confirm

Once confirmed you are taken to a set of 3 intro pages:

confirm

confirm

confirm

Then you are presented with

confirm

Where you can now set up your profile etc.

— Finding people to follow.

Enter their fediverse id in to the search box.

search

Usually this takes the form of

@username@instancename

You can follow me on the above qoto.org server by clicking this link.

In order for you to see items from my blog in your feed you need to take the following step in your profile settings.

Which is pretty easy to do, clearly this gives you a lot of control over what is then fed in to your feed.

Conclusion

Very easy sign up process, which is great, it looks like this instance also supports inline $\LaTeX$ which is cool too. I have now subscribed to this blog from mastodon.

Not quite ready to #deletetwitter yet, I have some contacts. Compared to the sign-up process on more old fashioned social media this is a breeze.
