I keep hearing people saying, the fediverse or decentralized media won't ever take down big tech social media. Let me offer you a few white pills. A few computer nerds built a eco system on the rights of the user back in the 90's. Because of their work we can spin up servers with zero cost on software. You can host your website from your router at home on a raspberry pi. All android phone/server manufacturers have to disclose their linux kernel changes. That is actually true for Apple's kernel too but no one else uses it. A few guys programming in their basements shit posting on email threads changed the face of the world. ![](https://wolfballs.com/pictrs/image/070a0344-78c1-4541-a006-e5b391c3a6a6.jpeg) ![](https://wolfballs.com/pictrs/image/a695e188-df08-4df7-a076-243bd16f425e.webp) The server market has been completely dominated by their free software. The world wide phone market also dominated. No one even gives a shit anymore about the windows desktop. If not for games new computers would not even ship with windows. If their cloud market collapses they will die. Valve is close to taking that gaming market with linux too. ![](https://wolfballs.com/pictrs/image/9a687bd0-1104-44f2-ba6b-1e7991c26a32.jpeg) It won't happen over night but we will win.

Pixel 6a with GrapheneOS is is pretty sweet
You can use Google play apps and they only access Google when you use them. Good compromise. More private than Apple. And you get to keep all the freedom of android. For example playing Pokemon roms. I can download weechat and talk to my in-laws for the first time in two years.

> [ActivityPub](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ActivityPub) is a federated social networking technology popularized by [Mastodon](https://joinmastodon.org/). > Account portability is the major reason why we chose to build a separate protocol. We consider portability to be crucial because it protects users from sudden bans, server shutdowns, and policy disagreements. Our solution for portability requires both signed data repositories and DIDs, neither of which are easy to retrofit into ActivityPub. The migration tools for ActivityPub are comparatively limited; they require the original server to provide a redirect and cannot migrate the user's previous data. > Other smaller differences include: a different viewpoint about how schemas should be handled, a preference for domain usernames over AP’s double-@ email usernames, and the goal of having large scale search and discovery (rather than the hashtag style of discovery that ActivityPub favors) I was curious about their reasoning. I don't think their reasoning is enough though. There is not enough benifit here to build a seperate protocol in my opinion. What do you guys think? Should we help build a atproto website ? Or stick to activity pub? I'm currently building a new site now.

I think this has been posted
Its that other decentralized protocol. I like it. Posting so I can play with it later.


Is There Like a Youtube-DL or Mirror To View Only Comments and Not Video?
sometimes I don't even want to see the video but just the title and the comments under it, it's just wasted bandwidth anyone know of any sites or tools to only see comments on youtube videos (also wondering this about any other site like this, like rumble - which requires a login to see comments? - or odysee)

> Nostr stands for "Notes and Other Stuff Transmitted by Relays". It is a new type of social experience on the web where "dumb" relays can be used to send messages from one user to another, in a secure, censorship resistant manner.

1% Rule: Only A Minority Engage With A Website (We're Gonna Need A Lot More Lurkers)
cross-posted from: https://wolfballs.com/post/54739 > > In Internet culture, the 1% rule is a rule of thumb pertaining to participation in an internet community, stating that only 1% of the users of a website actively create new content, while the other 99% of the participants only lurk

A community about alternative technologies to mainstream tech.

Example, Odyssey or rumble rather than youtube. Wolfballs rather than reddit
