Radio Papillon; Emitting freedom from ADM and beyond!

Starting to use Mastodon! Let's see how this goes; here's a quick intro: I am a #programmer, #linux user, #opensource advocate, #nlp data scientist, #language enthusiast (aka #polyglot), #dutch and #gay. I'm also into #privacy and #security. But if I don't have anything interesting to say I'll probably just post pictures of my #dog and #cat here ;)

Mi parolas #esperanto. 我现在学习#中文。Falo #português. Hablo #español . Je parle #français. Ich spreche #Deutsch. Ik ben en spreek #nederlands

After three years of (semi) regular existence, it is now high-time that the Pervasive Labour Union zine takes a very close look at the universe of the alternatives to corporate social networks.

What do these alternatives look like? What are the requirements of a 'true' alternative?
The Pervasive Labour Union zine already broached some of these topics on its Special Issue with the Homebrew Server Club on XMPP. To follow the HBSC’s strategy, a premium should be put on alternative approaches, not on any specific alternative apps.
We need federated social networking solutions based on open standards that are able to communicate among themselves, regardless of the platform being used.

Which protocols can and are being developed to achieve interoperability between the different alternatives? How do scale and trust influence the field? What are the forces at play within this realm and how to engage with them?
With this issue, we propose not only to collect a field guide of sorts, but also to open up the discussion on the alternatives and how to tackle the challenges posed by network effects, scalability and financial viability.

DEADLINE: February 5th

10,000+ march in Dublin against the housing crisis in Ireland. Very inspiring. This is what social change looks like. Large parts of civil society organising themselves for change. rte.ie/news/dublin/2018/1201/1

Blockchain study finds 0.00% success rate and vendors don't call back when asked for evidence

“Though Blockchain has been touted as the answer to everything, a study of 43 solutions advanced in the international development sector has found exactly no evidence of success.”


Man, it seems so bad you’d almost think I’d have a slide warning people about blockchain oil salesmen (they’re almost entirely men) in my talks or something…
