Sometimes it's good to look at the good stuff the generation of my parents managed to pull off. With the climate catastrophe underway, it's sometimes hard to forget. But I really like this one.

"Art. 1: All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood."

How easy it is to forget, and yet also how easy to just bring it up again. ❤️

What do you think are features that must be or should be included in #ActivityPub in the future?

Additional info:

For example, "liking" and "sharing" are part of the specification.

Note that e.g. Mastodon implements more than just the ActivityPub specification. So the question is also what features should be implemented by all instances on the Fediverse (incl. e.g. PeerTube).

FYI: Current ActivityPub specification:

FOSS creates huge opportunities for indigenous communities around the world to ensure the technology they use reflects their unique and precious cultures. Software is a personal and cultural sovereignty issue and deserves a global uprising - in the form of people who desire to learn. We need a new 'enlightenment' with true, deep digital literacy as the goal if we want to achieve a true balance of power. Facebook, Microsoft, Google, Apple and others like them are just digital colonials.

You don't own the content of your digital garden if you need Chrome to access it, simple as that.

Happily working on my emacs skills. They need to be brushed up. I had about 50 org-roam v1 notes, wanted to upgrade....I decided to start clean and try out spacemacs as well.
My fingers could not find anything anymore :-D (bc evil-vi...went back to evil emacs state)
Org is up and running, how i like it. I'm getting to know org-roam again.
I somehow feel I've not really gotten it yet. Shall I use deft or go with helm or ido? choices choices.

"Take back your privacy" is suing TikTok for 2bln in the Netherlands for violating childrens' rights.
"It is clear that TikTok does not take children’s privacy seriously. TikTok keeps sacrificing children’s privacy to make a profit."

I'm one week into teaching after my name change so now I'm clearly trans and apparently there's a trans student in one of my classes. He is still in the closet but opened to me privately and this is so heart-warming 😍 I hope to influence the lives of so many students positively

Let's Ban #Cars! (Seriously)

This is really an idea to think about - as ridiculous it seems because we have corrupt cowards in #politics. For humans, the idea would be great.

"What we need is a great, powerful, tremulous falling back in love with our old, ancient, primordial Beloved, which is the Earth herself."

Just watched Milkwood's video on worm farms.

Haven't got any experience with it. Would I need it when I have a compost heap in my garden?
Still pondering about it...

Things that are good for me are usually about going away from a computer, be outside, share bread with people and talk and laugh. Work in the garden and harvest some beans or carrots or tomatoes or potatoes. Talk with neighbours about the garden, the weather, or even soil.

At 'federated' I saw companies having an account. At signing on I could check a box if this was to be a bot account....
I guess I may not be all that interested in this way to use this platform....

Do you know alternatives?

so, I dont get mastodon, really.
As an IG user, i'm wondering what to share, and with whom. And why?
Is this a community? But do I know you then? Are _we_ communicating with eachother, know where we live, share our pains or struggles, share gifts, just go off-load together after a long week? The things that are interesting for me are usually technical, tool-oriented, about privacy or linux or emacs...nerd stuff. ==> continued on next post
