Google verdient sein Geld mit Werbung. Wenn es Browser wie Chrome oder Betriebssysteme wie Android scheinbar an die Welt "verschenkt" tut es das nicht ohne Eigennutz. Sie wollen damit ihre Position am Werbemarkt stärken, Preise diktieren, Standards setzen, die ihnen nützen.

Really excited for FediDB, its something I wish existed when I started Pixelfed.

I hope it helps bring fediverse developers closer together and encourages greater compatibility across implementations!

After almost a year of development, I am happy to announce #FediDB will be launching to the public this weekend!

Building ActivityPub applications will be much easier with FediDB.

Special thanks to @NGIZero for funding development of this project!

Monal is on Mastodon
I had never heard of Mastodon, which is sort of a federated twitter like service, until recently. Since there are a lot of open source and XMPP enthusiastic users on the Fosstodon server I have added an account there and all posts from this blog will be published there like they are on twitter. If you do use Mastodon, feel free to follow us :

Apropos Tracking in Apps und auf Webseite. Mithilfe von Netguard beobachte ich immer sehr viele Internetzugriffe in Richtung Sind Akamai oder Cloudflare als große CDNs nicht auch ein Sicheits-/Datenschutzproblem?
