So with a few friends, just launched this new instance:

INDIEWEB.SOCIAL is a home for those who build, study, promote  - or are just fascinated by - a wide variety of #openweb, #indieweb, #federated and #humanetech practices and technologies.

We seek to promote innovation and shared evolution and promotion of such technologies as well as to offer this instance itself as a platform to experiment with integration and early implementations...

“This also serves to highlight the lack of transparency. We still don’t really know what they were doing with the technology and how they were able to get away with using it for so long without the public knowing.” theguardian.com/technology/201

A call for all!

Once you get the hang of it, please consider writing an toot and pin that to your profile.

I recommend @laura 's intro to Mastodon (link below), and tech savvy ppl may even like to glance over the ActivityPub W3C standard to grasp the full power. I use Pixelfed and Prismo.news as other ActivityPub services.

Great story on UNIX history, including nice quotes from CS giants, eg, "Like Vietnam, he declared victory and got out of Multics.”

Welcome to idf.social for the Data Science students class of 2019!

Cambridge Analytica's attempt to sway elections in the US and many other countries, very explicitly targeted vulnerable people. They called them "persuadables"

The "unofficial" Information Retrieval Mastodon Instance.

Goal: Make idf.social a viable and valuable social space for anyone working in Information Retrieval and related scientific research.

Everyone welcome but expect some level of geekiness on the instance and federated timelines.
