Federama v0.1 released

Registrations can be open or closed.
Front page will show posts.
Users can login.
Users can create posts.
That's about it. While the goal of Federama is to use ActivityPub to connect to the Fediverse, it's not there yet.

Many cities in the world have become problematic when it comes to rents. Weirdly for me, almost no article, no podcast and no political discussion – even in in-depth formats – mentions strengthening/establishing cooperatives (Genossenschaften) as a part of the solution.
From my point of few, if most of the housing space would be held by either public institutions or cooperatives, many problems we face today would be either a solved or less grim.

urls often contain tracking information added to the end of them. when you are linking articles, stuff like the "utm_source" and "fbclid" sections allow people to track where you got the link from and how you are spreading it. this allows cops & corps to map out social groups.
while you can remove that stuff by hand, there's a firefox/chrome addon called "neat URL" that comes with an existing blocklist that automatically cleans off a lot of that stuff.

Physical (de)centralization of Mastodon servers – after our XMPP scan, we took 1000+ random Mastodon servers and looked at their hosters:
– about 50% of these servers are hosted by only 5 companies in 4 countries
– 26% of servers are hosted in Japan, followed by the USA (24%) and France (23%)
Mansions, superyachts, luxury cars, and private jets produce more carbon emissions than whole countries. Researchers are calling it “green crime.”
Digitalcourage hat nun ebenfalls eine Mastodon-Instanz! Cool.
