Imagine a federated platform like #PeerTube that replace #iTunes for distributing podcasts. It would have all the benefits of pirate radio (or #HackerPublicRadio); diverse voices, a plurality of sources, decentralized production and consumption, plus all the benefits of iTunes; any podcaster can potentially heard by anyone in a global audience, and without the downsides of a platform controlled by a single gatekeeper like Apple corporation.

Today I've added an invisible buff to RogueBox Adventures. Looks good so far. The next step will be to add invisibility for monsters too. I hope this adds some more tactical deepth for the battles inside the game.

Yesterday I reworked the text-output of RogueBox Adventures.
I am not sure if I like the way it looks now but at least you can read your messags much better now.

Reclaiming RSS

“Before Twitter, before algorithmic timelines filtered our reality for us, before surveillance capitalism, there was RSS: Really Simple Syndication … As we move away from the centralised web to the peer web, it’s time to rediscover, re-embrace, and reclaim RSS.”

Pepper&Carrot is the amazing comic strip of Davod Revoy, an unbelievably gifted and kind artist who releases everything he does with P&C under the CC-BY license. He is open to collaboration and contributions from the community and together they contribute storylines, translations, fan art, derivations, and much more. He's built an amazing community around a clever story and I adore everything about it

Open Legend (open source #tabletopRPG) looks like a lot of fun, anyone on Mastodon familiar with it? #tabletop #gaming

@Gargron
On the other hand you don't really explain what you 'do' on mastodon. You call it a 'micro-blogging service'. I don't think everybody does understand what this means. Instead you should say that users can publish text or media on mastodon and other users can like it, boost it to raise visibility or comment it.

Hope my thoughts are anyhow helpfull. I can give you a bit more details later if you like.

@Gargron
I just had a look at join mastodon.org and think I've some ideas how the page could become more helpfull for non-tech people.
The site is full of technical vocabulary and sometimes there are different words for the same thing. Eg. You use the words 'community', 'server' and 'instance' but mean the same. Furthermore you put the focus on self-hosting a lot. Thats nothing a non-tech users are interested in. Maybe things like this will even scare such a person away.

It seems like SuperTux is in need for new contributors. Would somebody here in fediverse mind to help them out?

Past weekend I worked on RogueBox Adventures again and made some progress. But everything I made only felt halfway finnished, so I didn't upload it yet. I hope today or tomorrow will be some time to work on.

On a old USB pendrive I found a few of my attempts to create music from a few years ago. I listened to it. It sounds like some kind of experimental ambient music but one or two songs aren't that bad (at least I thinke so). I ask me if I should release this to public domain somehow.

Remember

Not everyone can self host software systems.

Not everyone wants to self host software systems.

Not everyone gives a shit about tech

Most people just want to go online, do their thing and move on with their day

If there is a mass exodus from GitHub / GitLab or others we people hosting our own infra need to be good about discovery, community building, community engagement and more.

We also need to figure out how to federate authn/authz. I'll skip over submitting small things if it means yet another account on yet another server run by yet another random.

Centralization isn't great but it does facilitate discovery, community and engagement.

We need to keep this at the back of our mind.

Cancer sadly happens, it's horrible, being able to say your good byes due to it's slow acting is probably the only upside of the illness.

Today I added a very cool feature to Roguebox Adventures. Pets!
Okay to be honest its just one pet right now (a green blob). It will be generated inside the new hub world and can follow you on your adventures.

Finally weekend!
It was a busy but successfull week, with a big down at the beginning.
Now I like to work on RogueBox Adventures for a bit.

Already 100+ PeerTube instances and close to 10 000 videos!
PeerTube has proven it works, now let's develop this video-tube alternative to its v1!

Tomorrow will be a very busy day again, so I don't think that I'll have much time for developing RogueBox Adventures. Lets hope the rest of this week will be better.
