No, I am not interested in joining your proprietary social network
Alberto Moshpirit at 2014-09-28T11:57:15Z
I don’t care whether it’s ello or sgrouples or FriendFace or app.net or whatever, I am not joining another walled-in social network owned by a single organization. I already have enough of those.
Remember, Facebook used to be ad-free, somewhat closed, had no data mining, and didn’t force you to sign up with your real name. Then they decided they had to make money, and their only resource was a captive user base.
Twitter used to be ad-free with no data mining, and it used to be open so anyone could write clients for it. Then they decided they had to make money, and that meant making sure clients showed ads properly, and that meant locking out your favorite Twitter client and showing you posts that nobody had retweeted.
Go back even further into the past, and LiveJournal used to be run by a small team of people who were directly engaged with their user base. Then they sold out to a company who didn’t care, who sold out to a Russian company who were in it for the money.
Make no mistake, this cycle will repeat itself with ello and all the other closed-off single-provider social networks. Servers cost significant time and money to run — I know because I run some. Unless you have an eccentric millionaire or a trust fund to pay for the hosting, as the site grows, sooner or later someone’s going to decide that it needs to pay for itself. In fact, even if you have funding from an eccentric millionaire, you’re still reliant on their whims to keep the privacy and advertising policies you like.

Could FSF not host the video on a MediaGoblin instance? A bit ironic to point people at YouTube when the video warns against SaaSS.

This is an oft-occuring scenario for me:
- see a link to a photo on instagram
- "OK, let's click this, maybe I'll learn what's fuss about instagram at the same time"
- click link
- see an entirely white blank web page
- "oh, I have to enable scripting to see anything"
- get angry at today's web design
- close page

Evan Prodromou at 2014-07-21T15:31:10ZI'm happy to say that I'll be co-chairing the upcoming Social Web Working Group at the W3C. Per the announcement, we'll be defining three standards.
- A serialization for social data. This will likely be Activity Streams 2.0 or some future version.
- A client-to-server API. This will be likely be based on the Open Social Embedded Experiences API - a simple, RESTful Activity-Streams-based API.
- A server-to-server protocol for sharing data between social networks.
I'll be working hard to keep pump.io up with this WG without running too far ahead nor disrupting the work of third-party devs. I'm still trying to work out how to make it work -- my guess is that we'll support both the current API and the WG suite in parallel for a while, then deprecate the current API as uptake goes on.
I'm very excited about this Working Group and I hope people who are concerned about free and open social networks will help make it a success.

“Fingers crossed... BTW, is a streaming API in the ideas? REST turns into over-polling.”
Pump.io already supports websockets, so you don't have to poll. Or what do you mean?@JanKusanagi Set up filters on a server and have stanzas delivered that match. Higher level concern than websockets, the pipe by which they're delivered.
To me that is bad news for #pumpiverse. Doing comittee work and a standard will slow down innovation, as it gets harder to experiment with new features and distracts Even from development work.

OK, everybody stand back! Installing a new 2TB drive in my desktop computer and installing a fresh Debian "wheezy" on it! :-)
whistlewright, Ivaylo Valkov (Ивайло Вълков), Scott Sweeny, Stephen Sekula likes this.Show all 9 repliesUm, @Freemor , I don't trust 2TB drives *in* RAID arrays. A rebuild takes too long. If the drives are from the same batch (often are, which is stupid), they may well fail during the rebuild. Really does happen... Maybe it'd work out with the "levels" that look like distributed file systems, but...
email@example.com at 2014-07-02T17:35:14Z
X11R5 likes this.Same here. My NAS was built with 1TB drives even though 2TB were available and affordable. My next bigger array will probably be made with the smaller arrays arrayed into one larger array.
There will definitely be a learning curve involved but from what I've read so far much safer data wise.

firstname.lastname@example.org likes this.I would love to experiment with some small systems coupled with 2-3 drives, dual GigE, and ceph for an expandable home storage system. Neither time nor funding for that right now. Plus the stupid fast-enough switch issue. But I suppose the network bottleneck only exacerbates the rebuild time issue.
OK, system is back up and running smoothly. I opted for the lazy route this time and just rsync'd my $HOME back to the new drive :-)

you know you're an #ASOIAF nerd when you read "Sansa Clip" and think it's related to Ned Stark's eldest daughter.

Financial transparency: where your money goes with MediaGoblinFinancial transparency with MediaGoblin: where does your money go? Gives a complete breakdown of how we spent the money from last year's campaign. You deserve to know how your money is spent!
We hope you agree after reading the whole thing that we work super hard to make maximum use of the money you donate, and that you can't get a better deal dollar for dollar on supporting network freedom!
So anyway, if that resonates with you, we might add that there's only a couple of days left to support this campaign! Please support MediaGoblin!
