When #ActivityPub 1.0 was released, I hoped that the whole federated social would be able to inter-operate by about now. Sadly, a year later, this is not the case. Some older projects are still stuck on #OStatus, the core #Diaspora developers steadfastly refuse to even attempt inter-operation, and the #Zot developer has now abanded it too. So, essentially #XKCD 927 happened and we are more fragmented that we were before :(
Free Software Foundation just posted the videos from LibrePlanet 2019 - I would love some feedback on my Keynote. One of the things I am struggling with is how to prepare students from depressed areas of Boston to learn coding when they have been taught that asking questions means you are stupid... https://media.libreplanet.org/u/libreplanet/m/how-can-we-prevent-the-orwellian-1984-digital-world/
The UMich School of Information wrote up my work on attack-tolerant networks. https://twitter.com/umsi/status/1129423961480019968
Did I mention I wrote a book about Network Science using NetworkX? https://www.packtpub.com/big-data-and-business-intelligence/network-science-python-and-networkx-quick-start-guide
Looking for feedback on my last academic poster (as I design my next). https://elplatt.com/archive/2019/05/15/netsci-2017-poster.pdf
Amazing #LibrePlanet keynote "How an we prevent the Orwellian 1984 digital world" by @FreeScholar. Discusses "personal power" vs "power over" and insights into the motivations of the powerful. https://media.libreplanet.org/u/libreplanet/m/how-can-we-prevent-the-orwellian-1984-digital-world/
"Personal power comes from knowing who you are and acting on your ethics." #LibrePlanet
Metts grew up around children of the wealthy in Connecticut. Many are influenced by fear of disinheritance when they have no practical skills. #LibrePlanet
Metts calls for "design justice." Including communities affected by software (or anything) from the start. #LibrePlanet
