web shit, covid 

My Mom called, crying, because she couldn't figure out the VAMS website to register her 93 year old father for a COVID-19 vaccination. The form is poorly designed, even if you aren't legally blind.

If you're going to target a website at people age 65+, you really have to do better.

Hi Fedinauts!

I'd done very little ForgeFed work in the last few months, first because of the covid mess and then because I've been very active in Extinction Rebellion.

This week I'm finally spending time coding again, implementing basic OCAPs for authorization when processing a request to merge a Merge Request / patch. So the whole workflow will be possible: Open a MR, comment on it, submit updated versions, & finally merge it into the repo. And all of this will be in the specs :-)

#Hylo has been acquired by #Holo, and will be ported to run on their #Holochain network, a kind of distributed "cloud" hosting framework. The #Loomio co-op have said they will no longer offer gratis use of their flagship instance, so Hylo could be an alternative for unfunded groups that can't afford to pay for hosting.

My hopes for a more distributed architecture are with the #holochain ecosystem: "Holo is a distributed peer-to-peer hosting platform for Holochain apps (hApps); a bridge to the new Internet."

1) a distributed network of #Linux servers installed on 2) Holo.host minipcs 3) with distributed apps called Happs, with 4) as a first Happ its own mutual credit money app called HoloFuel

I wonder if there are academic or institutional research groups out there intentionally pushing harmless but viral misinformation through various styles of network media? If we had a body of empirical evidence on which styles amplify misinfo and which succeed in reducing its spread, maybe we could design self-education systems with some confidence we know what works and what doesn't, rather than relying on heuristics and ideology.


some remote accounts like mmn@social.umeahackerspace.se can't be followed from ?

It's good to see Pixelfed trending. I have written about Pixelfed on my site. I decided to try following my own Pixelfed profile via Aton Feed in the QuiteRSS feed reader to see how things look. I also thought it would be an interesting way for readers of my site who do not have Pixelfed to see our extra content and get a feel for the platform, so I turned it into a New Leaf Journal article.

Two million dead.

It is more people than call the state of Nebraska home. It is roughly equal to the population of Slovenia. And it is more than three times the number of people killed in the American Civil War.

#introduction #introductions Hey #fediverse I am finally trying to ditch corporate social media and privacy unfriendly apps. During this internal and very difficult process I have discovered the #decentralized terminology. Here I am to meet you all and why not, bring other folks over to the #fediverseSide! I like to use my social media to pick up information on a wide range of topics such as:
#politics #activism #privacy #security #digitalrights #foss #science #localnews #libreplanet #degoogled
