The poddery story





poddery.com ( #poddery stands for Pod Dery ) was started around 2010 (domain name was registered on 2010 December 07) by Joe Bivins. To place this in history of #diaspora,
1. The famous lecture "Freedom in The could" by Eben Moglen, was delivered on 2010 Feb 05.
1. This speech inspired 4 students of New York University’s Courant Institute (Illia Zhitomirskiy, Daniel Greppi, @Maxwell Salzberg and Raphael Sofaer) to launch a crowd funding campaign to replace #facebook on 2010 April 24.
1. The first developer preview was released on 2010 September 15 and first consumer alpha version was released on 2010 November 23. The first tag on the github repo dates 2010 December 2.

As you can see from these dates, poddery.com is one of the earliest diaspora pods. Possibly, third pod after joindiaspora.com and diasp.org (if you know another pod started before poddery.com, let me know in comments). When we organized our second Mini #Debian Conference in Pune in 2011, we opened an account in poddery.com (@Mini DebConf India) and its first post was on 2011 June 23.

We posted many photos of the events on this account and when we heard Joe Bivins was planning to close this pod on 2013 June 30, we did not want to lose these posts. We offered to take over the maintenance and launched Save Poddery Campaign in June 2013. We got around 50% of the target amount and with around 66% discount by KnightSwarm, we took over maintenance of poddery.com. We are running this service for about 6 years now. In between we added #xmpp service and last year #matrix.

You can follow the history of this service via @SavePoddery Campaign ** and @poddery.com updates accounts.

We are running our 3rd crowd funding campaign now. Thanks to everyone who contributed, money as well as time and effort to run the service.

Does anybody know of an open source version of the Evernote WebClipper "Simplified Article" magic? I have a bunch of blog posts with ads etc, and would like to extract only the actual post from it... #followerpower #OpenSource

 

repology the packaging hub


This could be really convenient for those of use who use multiple distros, and wonder which would be most convenient for trying out some package or some version of a package...
Repology monitors a huge number of package repositories and other sources comparing packages versions across them and gathering other information. Repology shows you in which repositories a given project is packaged, which version is the latest and which needs updating, who maintains the package, and other related information.

Aha. Opensource for war. Great move 👍 /s

 
Wow, ich wusste nicht, dass es so viele #OpenSource-Clones von bekannten Spielen gibt. Da muss ich mich morgen mal durchklicken! https://osgameclones.com/

 
"Die BUNDjugend fordert alle Parteien, Regierungen, Hochschulen und Forschungsinstitute dazu auf, dafür Sorge zu tragen, dass #öffentlicheAusschreibungen für Digitalgüter (Software, [...]) und deren Entwicklung oder Erzeugung als Ergebnis ausschließlich #OpenSource -Software, #OpenHardware und #OpenData beinhalten."

Das und vieles mehr lesenswertes steht im Antrag "Digitalisierung - sozialverträglich und ökologisch" der @BUNDjugend

https://www.bundjugend.de/ueber-uns/dokumente-downloads-2/

#publiccode #FreieSoftware

 
Unsere #bjv19 ist sich einig: #Digitalisierung muss #sozial und #ökologisch sein. Dafür fordern wir mehr #OpenSource, ein Recht auf Reparatur, transparente #KI und einiges mehr. Unsere Position lest ihr hier: https://www.bundjugend.de/ueber-uns/dokumente-downloads-2/ #publicmoneypubliccode #glasfaser

 
Thanks all for this information, really useful. I imagine as more people search out alternatives there will be an increase in faux #opensource #privacy software, apps etc.
Any advice on how to research new things properly to protect against false claims by eager greedy liars?
Thanks

I'm really happy to see freeCodeCamp switching away from Medium to Ghost:

https://www.freecodecamp.org/forum/t/we-just-moved-off-of-medium-and-onto-freecodecamp-news-heres-how-you-can-use-it/279929

I was running before I switched back to static websites. For people who prefer a lightweight blogging platform with a nice web interface, I highly recommend it.

You might also consider switching, given you have a medium blog:

We are pleased to offer MX-18.3 isos for your use.

MX-18.3 is a refresh of our MX-18 release, consisting of bugfixes and application updates since our original release of MX-18.

Note: Existing users do not need to reinstall. All bugfixes and additions will come through the regular update channel.

Updated packages

The latest updates from Debian 9.9 (stretch), antiX and MX repos.

New and updated mx-apps

mx-installer (based on gazelle-installer): The installer workflow has been reworked to allow the user to enter system configuration selections while the major system copy is proceeding, speeding up the actual installation time for the user. This is in addition to the encryption cipher options and select-able ESP install location that were previously added. Improvements to the UEFI boot installation routines have been added as well, along with a ton of of other bug fixes. Special thanks to chkboom/AK-47 for the heavy lifting reworking the installer and to fehlix for the improved UEFI boots on troublesome machines.

The kernel has been updated to 4.19.37-2 (linux-image-4.9.0-5 debian package name). So-called “zombieload” patches are included. Existing users can change kernels with the kernels section of MX-PackageInstaller->Popular Apps if they wish.

The MX Manual

Updated mx-manual with revised sections and screenshots, especially pertaining to the installer.

The antiX live-USB system

All the antiX live-USB features, including persistence (up to 20GB!) and remaster.
Significant improvements to the live-usb-maker system. (Special thanks to fehlix & BitJam for the work on live-usb-maker.)

Improved localization

Thanks to Old Giza and the Translation team, we continue translation refreshes for many mx applications (we love translators!)

Please report bugs to the new bugzilla bugtracker Bug Manager

If posting hardware issues, please post the output of the terminal command “inxi -Fxrz” or use our “Quick-system-info” from the menu, at a minimum.

If posting nvidia-installer issues, please post the contents of /var/log/ddm.log.

If posting installer issues, please post contents of /var/log/minstall.log and /var/log/minstall.conf

If posting remaster issues, please include the contents of /var/log/live/live-remaster.log

If posting issues with MX-PackageInstaller “Popular Apps”, please post contents of /var/log/mxpi.log or /var/log/mxpi.log.old (whichever contains the log of your issue).

Thank you!
