Crazy love

God is love. Crazy, relentless, all-powerful love. Have you ever wondered if we’re missing it? It’s crazy, if you think about it. The God of the universe–the Creator of nitrogen and pine needles, galaxies and E-minor–loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love. And what is our typical response? We go to church, sing songs, and try not to cuss. Whether you’ve verbalized it yet or not…we all know somethings wrong. Does something deep inside your heart long to break free from the status quo? Are you hungry for an authentic faith that addresses the problems of our world with tangible, even radical, solutions? God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency isn’t working harder at a list of do’s and don’ts–it’s falling in love with God. And once you encounter His love, as Francis Chan describes it, you will never be the same. Because when you’re wildly in love with someone, it changes everything.

Le métèque – George Moustaki

Avec ma gueule de métèque
De Juif errant, de pâtre grec
Et mes cheveux aux quatre vents
Avec mes yeux tout délavés
Qui me donnent l’air de rêver
Moi qui ne rêve plus souvent
Avec mes mains de maraudeur
De musicien et de rôdeur
Qui ont pillé tant de jardins
Avec ma bouche qui a bu
Qui a embrassé et mordu
Sans jamais assouvir sa faim

Avec ma gueule de métèque
De Juif errant, de pâtre grec
De voleur et de vagabond
Avec ma peau qui s’est frottée
Au soleil de tous les étés
Et tout ce qui portait jupon
Avec mon cœur qui a su faire
Souffrir autant qu’il a souffert
Sans pour cela faire d’histoires
Avec mon âme qui n’a plus
La moindre chance de salut
Pour éviter le purgatoire

Avec ma gueule de métèque
De Juif errant, de pâtre grec
Et mes cheveux aux quatre vents
Je viendrai, ma douce captive
Mon âme sœur, ma source vive
Je viendrai boire tes vingt ans
Et je serai prince de sang
Rêveur ou bien adolescent
Comme il te plaira de choisir
Et nous ferons de chaque jour
Toute une éternité d’amour
Que nous vivrons à en mourir

Et nous ferons de chaque jour
Toute une éternité d’amour
Que nous vivrons à en mourir

Transparent and blue water in Lloret de Mar

20140716_162639-2In Lloret de Mar, nature has found the ideal place to Express itself in its full splendour: amazing landscapes, sheer cliffs, beautiful coastal footpath and small inhospitable corners. The many signposted routes offer a unique opportunity to discover Lloret’s rich natural and cultural heritage in a calm and peaceful manner. One of the particulary outsanding features are the various coves and inlets that make up this wild and unspoiled coast, such as Cala d’en Trons, Sa Caleta, Cala Banys, Cala dels Frares, Sa Tortuga…

Sagrada Família Barcelona

Construction of Sagrada Família had commenced in 1882 and Gaudí became involved in 1883,taking over the project and transforming it with his architectural and engineering style, combining Gothic and curvilinear Art Nouveau forms. Gaudí devoted his last years to the project, and at the time of his death at age 73 in 1926 less than a quarter of the project was complete.Sagrada Família’s construction progressed slowly, as it relied on private donations and was interrupted by the Spanish Civil War, only to resume intermittent progress in the 1950s. Construction passed the midpoint in 2010 with some of the project’s greatest challenges remaining and an anticipated completion date of 2026, the centenary of Gaudí’s death.

Redmatrix and friendica

As an analogy – I wonder how many people go to Ford dealerships and tell them they really want a Jeep or a Volkswagen and when the Ford dealer manages to actually produce one from the back lot, then complain because it’s the wrong colour or doesn’t have snow tires on it.

Friendica was built for and designed around service federation. RedMatrix is designed around a consistent privacy model. The two goals are unfortunately somewhat incompatible as every different communication service has a somewhat different privacy model. Friendica’s is completely different from RedMatrix, for instance. They started off essentially the same, but we had to water down the Friendica model a bit and make lots of compromises so it would co-exist with other social networks. I’m tired of producing software that has privacy issues just because some other network we want to communicate with has privacy issues. We can’t federate with Friendica because there are too many anti-cert zealots and half the network issues browser warnings. We can’t federate with Diaspora because they can’t protect private photos. We can’t federate with GNU-social/StatusNet because nothing at all is private. We can’t federate with Facebook because we don’t want to and they won’t allows us to. At the end of the day there’s nobody left to federate with.

La plus grand faiblesse de friendica

Si friendica compte un grand nombre de qualités comme installation facile et rapide, compatibilité avec la fédération ostatus, envoie vers twitter, pump io et la liste est longue, ce réseau a une grande faiblesse.

Il y a très peu de francophones. Les quelques francophones qui se sont inscrits sont resté quelques jours voir quelques semaines avant de déserté ailleur. Résultat le nombre de francophone est très très faible.

Un réseau social sans personne n’est plus un réseau social mais un logiciel inutile, des lignes de codes inhumaines. Voila donc francophones du monde entier, sachez qui facebook n’est pas le seul réseau ni twitter ou google+, vous maitriserez vos donnés et ne serez plus dépendant d’une multinationale.

redmatrix

The RedMatrix (aka “red”) is an open source webapp providing a complete decentralised publishing, sharing, and communications system. It combines communications (private messaging, chat and social networking), and media management (photos, events, files, web pages, shareable apps) with enough features to make your head spin.

 

What makes the RedMatrix unique is what we call “magic authentication” – which is based on our groundbreaking work in decentralised identity services. This ties all RedMatrix sites and channels together into a single super-network where the boundaries between different websites are blurred or seemingly non-existent; where “who you are” has nothing to do with “what computer you’re connected to”, and where website content can adapt itself according to who is viewing it.

 

Warning: After experiencing magic authentication and nomadic identity, you may find it disconcerting and a bit “primitive” to go back to the old internet. You shouldn’t need hundreds of different passwords to use the web … or be totally isolated from your friends and family because a server or router in another country is having “issues“.

 

For the average person, the biggest advantage of decentralised identity is that you decide who you want to share your stuff with, and if somebody isn’t on your list, they’re not going to see it. It’s all under your control (we’re big on privacy). Use the RedMatrix as a social network or a business website or for personal cloud storage or media publishing – or any number of other uses; limited only by your imagination.
