Today I resieved a feedback about #hubzilla where someone claimed that hubzilla might be usefull if it would be explained what it does instead of it's 'marketing bullshit'.
As it seems hubzilla provides to much funtionallity that some think the describtion on the webpage is a marketing scam xD.
if someone is interested here's the conversation

@paulfree14@social.tchncs.de @bortzmeyer@mastodon.gougere.fr Si Hubzilla expliquait de quoi il s'agit autrement qu'en bullshit marketing cela serait peut-être un peu utile...

Social-Relay version 1.4.0 released

This release adds compatibility with the latest #Diaspora #protocol changes. Also now Social-Relay will verify received payloads to ensure receivers get payloads from only resolvable valid senders.


What is the relay system?

The #relay system handles distribution of public content using the #Diaspora protocol. This helps new nodes get into the network and allows subscribing to hashtags from around the network. This is an unofficial network addition not directly related to the Diaspora protocol or project itself.

If as a #podmin you want to hook up to the relay system, do as follows:

  • Enable your outbound/inbound relay configuration in your Diaspora pod settings or for #Friendica / #Hubzilla check your own settings/documentation on how to do it.
  • Ensure your node is registered at The-Federation.info. The relay system polls this list for nodes to check.
  • Profit within one hour!

Discuss and improve

Let me know if you have ideas for improving the relay system or just questions about it. Contact me here, GitHub issues or via IRC.



  • Accept new style Diaspora public payloads without xml=payload form data.
  • Add profile model. Store remote profile handle + public key for later use, since we don't want to always fetch them.
  • Start validating signatures in sent payloads. This requires fetching remote profiles. Closes #31.

A symbolic donation challenge

Since you are reading this post I guess you are directly interested in the improvement of Diaspora*. As you probably know Diaspora* couldn't improve without the hard and enthusiastic work of the developers. That is why

I challenge you to give at least a symbolic €0.01/week amount to the Diaspora* developers

€0.01/week is not much. It just €0.52/year so probably you can easily afford that. I guess you throw away much more to buy some fancy junk you don't even need at all ;-)

Isn't €0.01/week too little?

Yes, it is symbolic, but it is much more than nothing.

Also it can be a lot if most of us are willing to join (especially if some of us are willing to give a bit more).

For example, imagine if just 1% of the currently registered users of the federation have been taking this challenge. That would mean about €65/week for the developers. Just 15% of the users that were active in the past 6 month could give €75/week this way. 70% of the monthly active users could give €105/week for the developers by this "symbolic" donation.

Of course, you are free and encouraged to give more. (I also do so.)

How to participate?

Please, also encourage others to join this cause by spreading the message and voting on the poll below.

Libranet.de: Stronger Cipher Suite and no TLSv1

I've disabled the TLSv1 protocol for Apache web server and Prosody XMPP server. I also applied a stronger cipher suite for Prosody to enforce the usage of ciphers with Perfect Forward Secrecy.

I've tested HTTPS connections with Firefox and Chromium and XMPP connections with Conversations and Gajim. Works like expected.

Please note: Older browsers like IE up to version 10 and Android up to version 4.2 cannot connect to libranet.de anymore due to a protocol/cipher mismatch.

#commons is by questionizing the concept of porperty an answer to #capitalism which deviding us in economic categories.
It follows a different logic and comes through culture with shifting minds.

  • it's sharing instead of traiding
  • it's caring instead of profit
  • it's what can I do, instead of what can I get
  • it's what do we need, instead of what do I want

'we can't solve problems with the same pattern we've created them'

Sketch of the #Fediverse / #TheFederation by Mike from #Hubzilla. source.

Nice that #Socialhome was included 😊 I sure hope #Activitypub kicks off with some implementations soon. Unfortunately there are a lot of questions on how to implement it. Looks like #Mastodon will be the first major platform, hopefully that will pull others. Depending how it works for them 😉

Hubzilla connected people. Workshop
22 days ago


Today, I have fiddled around a bit with the #gnusocial network, yesterday I checked out #Hubzilla. I must say that, for now, I find all of them pretty much equally good, but I found all of them to be weak in one very important aspect. I would like to know your thoughts about this.

IMHO, neither gnusocial, nor Hubzilla, nor diaspora* are handling #federation well. I would, from whatever I read about the systems, expect any pod, hub, or instance to be able to synchronise with all the others. There should be a protocol to gather all posts from all pods, hubs, or servers, not only the ones that someone from your own pod/hub/server has already added.

I opened what is here called the public activity on two different #quitter (a gnusocial installation) servers, only to be shown two entirely different timelines. Not even ten percent were shared content.

Maybe I have the wrong idea of what all this should be or has been made for, but as far as I can tell, social media are in part about a sufficient amount of people to connect with. At present, some instances only host a handful of people, others some dozens, and only very few are listing more than a hundred users.

I believe that only once all pods, hubs, and gnusocial servers connect to all the others (maybe even all the other protocols), than there will be a sufficient amount of people online to make those an interesting alternative for people who are tired of Facebook®, Twitter®, what have you, but still go there because only there they’ll find their friends, family, acquaintances, and interests all under one roof, so to speak.

Am I wrong? Or am I doing something wrong?

Is there anywhere a short description of the federated networks with links to the server lists, a page that explains the pros and cons of the networks and points a new user to a list of servers for each system?
Just like <https: the-federation.info=""> does, but for #GnuSocial, #Mastodon, #Hubzilla, #Friendica and #Diaspora, not a complete page with all information, but a short introduction.</https:>

You can now follow/unfollow #diaspora, #friendica and #hubzilla users from #Socialhome. In preparation for user content streams, there is now a link to the user profile. Additionally, a "Home" button exists for remote users which points to the remote home profile of the user.

In other news, we also now have an #API \o/ It's not ... complete, but it does support authenticating (using a token), retrieving profile lists and doing a follow/unfollow action. Some (minimal) docs regarding the API here. For the API next will probably be creating content. Bots, anyone? ;)

https://the-federation.info today .

I was one of the first using these networks years ago .. and what do I see after all this time?

The numbers, though not exact, come close to reality.

Users: 649021

Last month active users: 15697

This is absolutely depressing ... the numbers of active users are +- equal to those of the beginning.
And consider that  +- 3500 in joindiaspora (last month active users) ... as centralization style .

Nextcloud und Hubzilla als SaaS-Services

Mein Webspace-Provider hat #Nextcloud als SaaS (Software_as_a_Service) auf meine Anregung in die Liste der installierbaren Software aufgenommen. Sehr angenehm finde ich diese Liste bei meinem Provider. Alles OpenSource-Lösungen, hat man sich für eine entschieden, erstellt man dafür über eine Weboberfläche ggf. eine Datenbank und ebenfalls über die Weboberfläche lässt sich die Software installieren.

Für #Hubzilla hat mein Provider noch keinen #SaaS -Installer erstellt - weil die Nachfrage zu gering ist. Aber der freundliche Support hat mir im Januar 2017 die Hubzilla-Version 2.0.6 und jetzt die Version 2.4RC installiert. Ohne das für mich zusätzliche Kosten entstanden sind.

There is always someone coming from  #diaspora to land in #hubzilla, for one reason or another, or just curiosity.
Well, hubzilla is not diaspora, tags do not work the same way, tag #newhere for ex. , or just post something as greetings when you do not have any contact makes no sense.

Here in hubzilla we have groups/forums, so if you like jazz then you have to search for jazz (in the appropriate search space) and so you will find the jazz forum and all its supporters, or you like linux, then you search linux and you will find all the persons and all the groups that love linux, that's how things work.
We have categories, tags, as well as time-lines, so things are not lost in absolute void.

And If you are looking for newhere, always in the appropriate search space, then you will probably find
, which is the "zot-world's newest news forum" ( zot -> redmatrix-hubzilla) , and therefore also a place to report new arrivals probably.

If you leave a city and land in another, do not wait for the new city to be the same and work as the old one.

Federation, dezentral, global - globale föderierte digitale Ökosysteme

Würde mich sehr freuen, wenn jemand den #Federation/ #decentralized -Beitrag von @{Andrew Manning ; andrew@grid.reticu.li} ins deutsche übersetzt. Bin der Meinung, dass das im Beitrag beleuchtetes Thema nicht nur für Technikszene, die Anwendungsentwickler relevant ist, sondern für alle Mitglieder, Teilnehmer, die Mitwirkinden in den Communities der jeweiligen Netzwerke #Diaspora, #Friendica, #GNUsocial #Hubzilla, #Mastodon (#DFGHM) usw. Und das Thema des Federation-Beitrags ist umso wichtiger für die Mitmenschen da draußen, die für die #DFGHM -Federation zu gewinnen sind. Habe dies gestern hautnah im "Hubzilla verbindet Menschen" -Workshop erlebt.

Die Definition der Begriffe federation/decentral hängt genau so von den jeweiligen Akteuren ab, wie diese Akteure auch bestimmen, mit welchem Leben diese Begriffe gefüllt werden. In meiner Wahrnehmung haben diese hier im technischen Kontext diskutierte Begriffe federation/decentral einen direkten Zusammenhang mit den brennenden gesellschaftlichen Themen wie #FakeNews und #Globalisierung. Das Internet verwandelte die Welt in eine globales Dorf. Die Soziale Netzwerke, wie diese von den Medienkonzernen und dem #Staat gelebt werden, verwandeln die Welt in ein einziges Panopticon . Es liegt an uns, die tag-täglich im digitalen Raum unterwegs sind, dafür zu sorgen, dass dieser Raum lebenswert bleibt. Habe mal vor zwei Jahren einige Überlegungen dazu verföffentlicht Zukunftsfähige digitale Ökosysteme im Post-Google-Zeitalter, 13.10.2014 . Mich freut sehr, dass mit der #DFGHM -Federation der Gemeinschaft lohnenswerte Alternativen zu herkömmlichen Sozialen Netzwerken zur Verfügung stehen.

Bemerkenswert ist, dass die DE.Wikipedianer, die vermutlich der #DFGHM -Szene nah stehen, anstelle einer Federation-Definition einfach eine Weiterleitung auf den Föderierte Identität -Artikel eingerichtet haben. Eine Definition des Begriffs Federation sucht man in diesem Artikel vergeblich.

Social Web Incubator Community Group kick-off call

Reminder, kick-off call for the SWICG group this Friday, May 5th of 2017 at 4PM GMT.

What is this thing?

"The purpose of the Social Web Incubator Community Group is to continue and extend the development of vocabularies, formats and protocols to support the distributed / federated social web, as well as related technologies (such as anti-abuse and anti-spam techniques suitable for an open web)."

It would be great to have a wide array of influencers and builders of the federated social web present, at least listening for a random comment, if not actively engaged. Participating in the calls is not mandatory at all. Especially would love key contributors from projects like #diaspora, #friendica, #hubzilla, #mastodon, #gnusocial and #pumpio to be present.

[DE] Suche PHP-Entwickler und Designer! Wer hat Lust, bei einem Pilotprojekt basierend auf The Federation mitzumachen? Langfristiges Ziel ist es, ein Netzwerk und eine erweiterbare Plattform aufzubauen, auf der sich Freiberufler und (meist genossenschaftliche) Betriebe mit ökologisch-nachhaltiger und sozial verantwortlicher Ausrichtung untereinander und mit ihren Anwendern und Kunden vernetzen können. Aus verschiedenen Gründen bisher internet-technisch oft wenig aktiv, gibt es in diesen Kreisen ein wachsendes und großes Interesse an freier und quelloffener (weil "nachhaltige") Software sowie Datenhaltung weit weg von den heutigen Tech-Giganten. Ein erster Schritt wird sein, hubzilla oder das zot-Protokoll bei bereits vorhandenen Web-Präsenzen möglichst nahtlos einzubinden. Finanzielle Mittel sind vorhanden. [/DE]

[EN] Looking for PHP developers and designers! Who would like to participate in a pilot project based on The Federation? Long-term goal is to build a network and extensible platform on which freelancers and (mostly cooperative) firms with ecologically-sustainable and socially responsible orientation can connect with each other and their users and customers. Due to various reasons as yet not very active with internet tech, in these circles there's a growing and big interest in free and open source (because "sustainable") software as well as keeping their data far away from today's tech giants. A first step will be to integrate the zot protocol or hubzilla into already existing web presences as seamlessly as possible. Funds are available. [/EN]
