What we want to do

Feed the Publiclab research notes into the fediverse a federation os social networks free, libres and open source. Among others Mastodon, GNUsocial, Pleroma, Friendica...

Our attempt and result

We've created a profile in the Botsin.space Mastodon instance focused on bots and sincronized the Publiclab feed using the IFTTT.com service

Everytime a research note is posted to the lab, the note goes directly to Mastodon.

If you are a Mastodon, GNUsocial, Pleroma, etc... user, you can now follow the lab on Mastodon at https://botsin.space/@publiclab (copy paste because the editor is doing weird things) or seach for @publiclab@botsin.space.

Why are we interested?

Using free and open software is important for citizen autonomy. Comunicating our projects using exclusively Twitter or Facebook makes us dependent on those multinational corporations. Privacy, data ownership and autonomy.

Whoa cool! We're also thinking of how folks in different parts of the world can efficiently -- combatting slow load times. Would this help people in, for example, China?

Hi jeff! There's for example, an instance with Tor access at https://ieji.de. The instance is accesible also using Tor browser at iejidevtqqdlukju.onion

I don't know exacly the issues but i guess you mean circunvention, firewall and so on?

I think it may be distinct from firewall -- actually folks in China like @shanlter (and @liz when she's visiting) have noted that load times can be very slow and we're interested in ways around this.
