#IndianPirates urge people to #boycott centralized social media platforms like #Facebook & #WhatsApp which have really bad track records when it comes to #privacy of the users or influencing political choices of users or siding with ruling parties. We recommend switching to #federated #SocialMedia like #Mastodon, #Diaspora, #Matrix & #XMPP.

Looking for a few people to test the Exposure Notifications API of @microg
- Update your microG to http://microg.org/dl/core-en.apk
- Install and set up your local gov corona tracing app https://www.xda-developers.com/google-apple-covid-19-contact-tracing-exposure-notifications-api-app-list-countries/
- Verify that microG settings has Exposure Notifications enabled and shows the app as using it
- When you are in public tomorrow, go to microG settings again and verify that "Collected IDs" shows a higher number
- Report back here with device name and android version+rom
For those who are curious about the complexity, I have documented the steps here
Basically editing 3 configuration files (single line change) and answering some interactive questions.
If you have a public ip address, that would be just answering interactive questions. Editing configuration files is required to map ip address to a domain name.
Looking for some volunteers to test the diaspora-installer package in #debian.
All it takes is setting up a lxc container or vm locally, installing diaspora package and testing it in a browser on your host machine (create an account, post some status, share some photos etc).
Keep the package updated when new versions are released. Let me know if you are interested.
I was not very actively maintaining this package for some time, now planning to be more active.
