Demokratie = Ein politisches System in dem das Volk durch Wahlen und/oder Abstimmungen an der Gesetzgebung, Verwaltung und Gerichtsbarkeit teil hat und sich durch den täglichen Kampf gegen Faschismus aufrecht erhält.

Ich glaub die Definition ist akkurater als alle Demokratiedefinitionen die ich bisher in PoWi gelesen hab.

New essay: Seven theses on the Fediverse and the becoming of FLOSS

Recently, @rra and I have been working on an essay highlighting questions about the #Fediverse and how these are getting entangled with #FLOSS practices. From software production to structure and governance within alternative social media, online communities and politics.

The text follows a multi theses model, to map the different things we've been looking at and publish the current state of our research.

It is the closing chapter of a new publication from INC/Transmediale (

Feedback welcome. We're planning to publish an online version with more references!

Übrigens hat sich @epicenter_works mal angesehen wie eine gute Platformreguleirung aus grundrechtlicher Sicht aussehen würde. Bald schlägt ja die EU-Kommission den Digital Services Act vor in dem es exakt darum gehen wird.

Um diesen Vorschlag von Beginn an mitgestalten zu können bitte ich euch darum etwas zu verbreiten, insbesondere mit relevanten Akteuren zu teilen.

#ActivityPub Conference #Video
#Federation #awesome

I'm really happy that all the videos from #apconf are now available on #ConfTube, a #PeerTube instance dedicated to conference and community events: @apconf

During #ActivityPubConf #apconf : What are the downsides of #ocaps ?
@cwebber : Well, they can be delegated really easily (but so can ACLs by proxy so ACLs are misleading)

me (in my head) : noooo, ACLs are difficult to delegate in practice and that's what counts. BUT ocaps can also be made difficult to delegate by requiring each action to be signed using a key that is also used for other things !

It's inspiring to see so many sparkling eyes, so many different people genuinely do their best to try to change the world. I've heard this phrase countless times in startup pitches and it always seemed empty. I didn't hear it once today but it was in the air and it was filled to the brim with meaning, with hard work, with dreams. I'm extremely honored to be among this crowd and thanks all for the hard work!
