I have a few projects I am working on:
* Tilde Center - decentralized/federated tilde server network
* Tildex - decentralized/federated application and services
* Babili - extendable virtual assistant bot core
* abots - The shared library between all those projects (short for "a bunch of tiny scripts")
Hey, this zine that I worked on in out. NODE Vol 01, free digital release and physical preorder, https://n-o-d-e.net/nodevol01.html
This first volume is 150 pages long, and, it's packed with features on P2P projects, such as Dat, Beaker, Ricochet IM, Aether. There are tutorials showing projects like the new NODE Mini Server, 3D print long range wifi antennas, how to chat via packet radio, and how to Libreboot the Thinkpad X200. There's also a handy open source directory at the back, and more!
Lots of things circulating around the phlogosphere recently. Here's some of my thoughts & responses:

I just tracked it down the story and wanted to share it, so here you go:
The author, Alex Ebel, sadly died a few years ago.
If you use gopher, you can go directly to the index.
Otherwise, you should use Floodgap's HTTP proxy.
BTW, is this format convenient, or would having everything in one file be easier?
You can avoid #YouTube's weird algorithms and broken subscription system by subscribing to channels through RSS instead. You don't need an account, just a feed reader.
Put the channel's username in this address:
You can then add this RSS address to your feed reader app.
For example, OnePotChefShow's RSS feed is:
You can also make RSS feeds from channel IDs (strings of letters and numbers):
Friends I've done it. Mastodex is now up! If you don't know what it is, Mastodex is a public listing of Mastodon users in which they are tied to a specific Pokémon of their choosing.
It's in early stages, I'm happy for others to play with it and for people to contribute if they want. It's licensed under the zlib license.

Some lessons from web 2.0
Dimly-related biological, we spite words.
I'm my brain: external, extensive,
timeless in our nothings,
roots visible and free.
Earth of old divides, howling still;
in from strangeness, we question the world.
Wild is dying, skin: external;
genius: the dead.
To understand a language gone
in a culture of mind and shadow,
his trembled concepts the same.
