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.

That's a lot of comments!

Just wanted to note that #framasoft seems to be pulling a lot of services: toot-toot

Also to mention #matrix (sometimes called #riot by the uninformed) which is - unlike #diaspora - a consistent view federated "chat" network (technically it's a distributed JSON database, but don't tell anyone I've told you).

(And a sidenote: screaming censorship for decentralised and distributed networks is pretty funny. Still "freedom of speech" doesn't mean "right to be listened to", mind you. That's not censorship, that's keeping it civilised.)
 
Hey everyone, I’m not only #newhere but new to socialmedia in general. I’m interested in #bushcraft, #hamradio, #linux and #sailing. You can also drop me a line on #matrix at @daniel:dbernhardt.com

Feel free to message me any suggestions (strategies, tools, software) on how to combine my interests.

Viele Grüße,
Daniel, DK1DB
 
Yup yup and don't be afraid to challenge anyone on their shit, we are all learning at different rates and I've been challenged on my wee wild rants and had to evidence them. Discussion is to a viewpoint as bacteria and virus are to the immune system we get sick then we build antibodies, views are changed by a healthy well educated opposing argument to our own perspective ... if that makes sense?

Hell I'm so #newhere I cant even pgp ... well nearly, i can pidgin/xmpp ish but am gonna read up on the #matrix link. Thanks.
 
@grin also gave me some good advice in a short #matrix conversation. Very appreciated.
If you want to join the discussion on #matrix you can do so by clicking this link: https://matrix.to/#/!TzeTHRyWyQhsRwFftC:grin.hu?via=grin.hu&via=dbernhardt.com

Also testing how to share matrix channels :)
 
Thank you all guys. You are very helpful. I think I'm slowly getting it all together. I found some "high volume" contacts buried deep in some D* FAQs and followed those. It went uphill from there. @grin also gave me some good advice in a short #matrix conversation. Very appreciated.
 
Hi there, also on #Matrix.

First advice: you need people to follow, there is no real "public" stream of information, just scattered data all over the place. If you have your own pod you have basically zero public posts, only what you personally follow. So if you want to have "public posts" (and meaningful #hashtag search) you have to follow lots of people just to pull their posts into your pod. I have a "just pulling them into the pod" "circle" to add basically everyone into (who seem worthy).

If you do not care about public then gather people with good info source. I usually start by adding anyone, then adding people who make good comments, then drop the people getting annyoing. ;-)

D* is very different from other networks, a bit... weird.

Gute Frage, aber den Kampf gewinnen immer die Maschinen

#Matrix: We have discovered and addressed a #security breach.


source: https://matrix.org/blog/2019/04/11/security-incident/

TL;DR: An attacker gained access to the servers hosting Matrix.org. The intruder had access to the production databases, potentially giving them access to unencrypted message data, password hashes and access tokens. As a precaution, if you're a matrix.org user you should change your #password now.

@switchingsocial Just fyi, zom has moved on to using #Matrix for them. So, now there's a new Matrix client, I guess.

Thanks to @BADy , we have now a progress bar for https://fund.poddery.com campaign. And we have raised about 34% of the target with 48 more days to go. Lets know if you would like to help with promoting the campaign. If you know ruby/rails we need help with adding this directly to our diaspora instance.

"To understand why this is, I want to give you a quick, rough crash course in nuclear physics." Which takes 10 minutes. #nuclear #physics #matrix
