Back in the old days of 2012 the death of Facebook was predicted to happen within 5 to 8 years... It appeared a good thing to me at that time 😆 The link I referred to does not exist any more, but found out it was to a CNBC article : https://www.cnbc.com/id/47674474. So now I sit down and wait until June 4th....😀
I am unemployed. I don't believe I will be returning to academia.
If you or someone you know is looking for a high skilled, highly motivated Unix admin, technical writer, infosec consultant, or tech researcher, please get in touch. Willing to relocate anywhere (after the COVID-19 situation, of course) and work remotely in the interim.

I've had to remove all binary software downloads from my website because they are being falsely flagged. I wrote about the issue in more detail here: https://medium.com/@byuu_san/googles-monopoly-is-stifling-free-software-e63dea114f39
Okay, found out that there actually is a newer version of Gnu Social, only it has not been linked to by the website. Will find one way or another to link the accounts, or maybe #micro.blog at my own blog and post it to my Mastodon and GnuSocial account....
Finally had time to resolve the 502 bad gateway error on my #statusnet / #gnusocial server. The update of php-fpm broke it 6 weeks ago 🤔 Now find a way to import my messages from there to Mastodon, or find another way of not losing the content of previous years... #indieweb. It is a pity the Gnu Social project is not actively maintained and that the change of protocol broke my connections to other servers 😞
Had a lot of fun tonight programming my first Mastodon #bot !
Now that we have American presidential candidates normalizing the idea of owning your data like personal property, I wonder how the #Solid project (solid.inrupt.com) is doing?
The history of USENET and the alt. hierarchy shows what we lost when the Internet stopped being about protocols and started being about products—a catastrophe adversarial interoperability staved off for decades, until we blocked it with terrible tech laws. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2019/11/altinteroperabilityadversarial
