The new version of the MARPA paper is out!
Hi fediverse! Boosts appreciated on this one.
I’m part of a co-op building a platform for artists to sell art without getting exploited. I’ve been working on it for a while but there’s a lot of work to do and I could use some help. A ton of the main features are in place, but there’s still some big gaps and a lot of polish left before it can launch.
The platform is fully open source and developed in the open. It’s built on Phoenix/Elixir and Tailwindcss. Our co-op is already incorporated and established and it’s open to members that want to actually commit but you don’t need to be a member to contribute or help.
Does this sound interesting? I’d love some help! I’m also happy to answer questions. And no, you don’t need to know Elixir already. It’s pretty easy to learn for the things you’d be using it for. Even some design help would be welcome. Feel free to reply here or DM me!
That feel when you post https://media.defense.gov/2019/Sep/17/2002183517/1200/1200/0/190912-F-FT687-9002.JPG and a bunch of people say "... Oh." and contact their doctors
Here is a report on some of the dangers of P2P and decentralized technologies, namely that tools that achieve some of the goals of #decentralization, #privacy, and strong #encryption have been used by far-right racists.
It discusses the challenges when they seek the same tools we want to promote freedom and equality, and the various ways those problems have been dealt with, and specifically covers #Mastodon and #Scuttlebutt and how Mastodon has been fairly successful.
the instance name lesbian.solutions always makes me feel like a call centre employee getting calls like "hey me and this girl im in love with held hands for three hours does she like me, oh also we've kissed every day for the last 3 years and she keeps talking about when we get married but idk maybe it doesn't mean anything?"
and I'm just like "have you tried turning it off and on again?"
I write. Words, programs, poems.
Talk to me about community, queerness & unschooling
