The recording of my talk at #ActivityPubConf on Hashtag Federation is now online.
It is a nice overview of my work.
The recording will be available later, but if you're interested in enabling a global consistent view on hashtags, know stuff about DHTs or #ActivityPub relays, you can have a look at the paper: https://git.orlives.de/schmittlauch/paper_hashtag_federation/src/branch/master/paper_hashtag_federation.pdf
Please contact me about any questions, remarks or other feedback!

computer / systems rambling
or how there're no good accessible chat systems because the people who would write one are either using their work's slack or still (like me) lurking in the depths of irc.
examples multiply. the thing i thought about today was: not using a giant cloud provider sucks now in comparison to racking your own hardware and having your own cloud-like substrate because the people who would make that not suck are either using AWS or working for AWS / some other megacorp.

something i think i've learned over the last 20 years:
competence in infrastructure has a centralizing tendency, and that tendency has a way of sapping or destroying _distributed_ competence.
as a concrete example, i've rambled before about how how there are no good normal-person mail clients left because all of the people who would write them are just using gmail (or satisfied with mutt / emacs / whatever).
CORRECT: A "New Folder" dialog with "foo/bar/baz/quux" entered into the field. A helpful message appears below the text field, stating "Using slashes in folder names will create sub-folders". This is captioned "KDE Dolphin".
WRONG: An error dialog saying "The folder could not be created" "Error creating directory /home/una/foo/bar/baz/quux: No such file or directory". This is captioned "GTK+2 File Dialog".
WRONGEST: A "New Folder" dialog with "foo/bar/baz/quux" entered into the field. A message appears below the text field, saying "Folder names cannot contain /.". The "Create" button is grayed out. This is captioned "GNOME Files".
These packages use the `buildMozillaMach` function, that now exposes a `symbols` output. This output contains a zip file that we automatically upload to #Mozilla, so that they can match our binaries to our debug symbols to generate useful stack traces.

Die Pinkwashing-Saison steht vor der Tür. Mit dabei: Die I.G. Regenbogenfarben (BASF), deren Engagement für die queere Community zwischen 1939–1945 grob in drei Kategorien unterteilt werden kann: 1. Zwangsarbeit (u.a. Buna-Werke Auschwitz-Monowitz) 2. Todesmärsche zur Materialerprobung (Sachsenhausen) und 3. 42,5%ige Beteiligung an der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Schädlingsbekämpfung, der Inhaberin des Zyklon-B-Patents.
