New hubzilla channel

HubzillaToday, I decided to open a new Hubzilla channel (account) for my english use.

What is hubzilla ?

Hubzilla is a decentralized communication network, which aims to provide communication that is censorship-resistant, privacy-respecting, and thus free from the oppressive claws of contemporary corporate communication giants. These giants function primarily as spy networks for paying clients of all sorts and types, in addition to monopolizing and centralizing the Internet; a feature that was not part of the original and revolutionary goals that produced the World Wide Web.

In other words, Hubzilla an application that we can install freely in a server that can help a community to communicate. It could be a social network, a blog or a file sharing system.

Why I stopt using my preivous channel ?

I created an english channel one year ago when hubzilla was just new. Yes it has only one year like a baby. And you have address like email. Mine was Chris9561@lastauth.com. Once I wanted to change the name like we can do it with twitter but it was so complicated that I keep it. I added people, too many and now I have so many people that I don’t even know. So I decided to delete all and create a new channel and add peole with who I will have real contact.

Why I create a new english channel ?

After holiday I have new motivation. I wanted to start something new from zero. It is like having a new home in a new city. It is good to have new perspective, new idea.

Feeling a new user is one thing but analysing what is missing is an other things. I wanted to feel how new people who does not know hubzilla feel. We can call that emphthy. Whith my poor english I could explain how to improve hubzilla. We must be honest to recognise that now hubzilla is not for public, it is only for hubzillian developper or passionate. The creator Mike said that Hubzilla is targeted for developper and not for normal user.

I encourage developers to create a new channel. You can see things you don’t see. You can see things as noob. Yes it is easy to create a new account but after how to use it ? What to do ?

My dream : invite people that would be able to create an account or follow me here and having interaction with them. Do you want to contact me ? No problem my ID is kris@lastauth.com add me pleace. You don’t have hubzilla account no probleme create it.

Here is my english hubzilla channel : https://lastauth.com/channel/kris

If you have Diaspora account you also can follow me in adding kris@lastauth.com

I would like to have your feedback. What is nice ? What is your impression of hubzilla ? Why did you stop using it ?

Installing a new gnusocial

Few years ago was statusnet. And Statusnet was the federated social network. It was easy to install on on simple LAMP. we were in 2011 …

And diaspora was born and I discover friendica and redmatrix.

Now in 2014 I tryed gnusocial. Gnusocial is the continuation of statusnet. My experience at quitter.se was really nice. So I decided to install a gnusocial instance just to try and maybe do adopt.

First I notice that there is no documentation or very few. the only page I found was http://gnu.io/social/resources/code/

We must have ssh access and imagine lot ot things.

After persistance, I could install it and it is very satisfying. Nevertheless I have few unfinished questions.

– How to localize in french ?

– How to connect with twitter the twitterbridge didn’t want to work.

– How to set up the mobile version

– I couldn’t connect with mustard

Broken promises of HTML5

HTML5 has been quite the buzzword for a while now and as developers we are stuck in between a massive demand and a lack of technical support.

Devices and hardware that promised to be the bright future of HTML5 are not allowing us to do the things we want to. In this talk Chris Heilmann of Mozilla will show how we can juggle our demands and move forward towards a world where HTML5 is not a cool « nice to have » but the standard it set out to be. There is a lot to be defined and many great things brewing – we just need to push where movement is needed rather than going in lots of different directions.
