I hear being said a lot lately. Yet I think decentralization can mean a lot of different things.

Fill in the blank, according to your opinion:

We can achieve a more _____ internet, through decentralization!

US must invest in emerging tech to keep pace with my ex-wife, Govini report says - C4ISRNet

I set up a network-level adblocker in me and my neighbors' home network. Not all of them are super tech-savy so I thought it might be easier and less redundant than setting up browser addons or mobile apps everywhere. These are the stats after roughly 24 hours:

Something a bit different today...

There's a really nice Fediverse admin on here called @stux who provides lots of free decentralised public services (public instances of Mastodon, PeerTube, Pixelfed, Matrix, Nitter, Invidious, Searx etc).

Stux is spending hundreds of euros a month so that these services remain free and operational.

Apparently Stux has had a tough time finding work recently, but has their own small business which provides web hosting.

If you're looking for a small indie hosting provider, this might be a really good choice as the money raised will help keep the Fedi going too:

(I'm sorry to embarass you Stux, but I think you deserve a shout-out for the good work you do!)

Hi everyone 🌊

We've had a busy couple of months! A lot has been going on behind the scenes, so we've written up a blog post to give you all a quick rundown 😄

(2/2) More interesting to me is that a lot of other professions could also benefit from this concept of adoptables.

I mean in research, what you usually share is a finished or mature project. Then you have #openaccess and #opensource . Yet I think there is value in publishing #adoptable project-drafts or ideas.

If #mastodon will humor me with a social experiment, I'm going to start sharing
#Adoptable #Research #Idea s. Things on my backlog, which other people might also be interested in, now

(1/2) Today, I recalled I something that I haven't heard about in ages: Adoptable Art.

An artist publishes an original character, pose templates or some other asset so that it may be re-used by other artists. i.e. adopted. Here is a Deviantart journal from a decade ago:

It's not a trend that has completely died off, if you look hard enough you can even find 'em on Instagram. But more interesting to me is...
