ActivityPub will include nomadic identity

ActivityPub will include nomadic identity

I was reading a comment from Mike Macgirvin

Zot is gone and Zot6 along with it. Their successor, the Nomad protocol (which was derived originally from Zot10), is considered experimental and transient (hence the name) and is not intended to be implemented by other projects. Most of the functionality once provided by Zot has moved or is moving to ActivityPub. Nomad will remain until this migration is complete and ActivityPub has evolved to a point that Nomad is made redundant. Then it will wander off in the desert and die.

How do you understand this?

First of all I must explain what is nomadic identity. Mike Macgirvin the creator of the protocol ZOT had a vision long long time ago. He realised that all our identity was catched by a domaine name. On the Fediverse your identity is similar than email. It looks like user@domain. It is a weakness.

  • The server can be down
  • Your account can be censored or deleted
  • The administrator can stop maintaining the instance.

Nomadic identity let you move your account to an other instance or clone it. Your identity is not your user@domain but is hidden in a unique key. Then if you move user@domain2 would be ok and all your contacts would be still yours.

He apply this idea on Hubzilla then on zap, Mistpark and other clones.

But today if you have an account on Mastodon for example. You loose all your contacts. You can follow them but they have to accept you again,

As far as I understand this remark, he is planing to include the nomadic concept in ActivityPub. That means that all plateformes of ActivityPub could be nomadic.

Just imagine you create an account on Mastodon then you clone it on Pleroma and you can use both the same way you use mail from your phone or your desktop or webmail.

This concept is not easy to understand untill we try it. Today you can try it on Hubzilla or Zap.

How to install Friendica with Yunohost

How to install Friendica with Yunohost

Friendica is a wonderfull and powerfull social network you can install easily yourself with just few lines of commands.

This is not a detail way how to do it. But just a missing part of the official documentation.

You have a server with yunohost. If you don’t know how to install yunohost go the official documentation of yunohost. But I can give you how to do it in 2 lines

  1. Install Debian
  2. Connect with ssh to your debian server and type
curl https://install.yunohost.org | bash

Prepare a domain or subdomain for your friendica

Admin > Domain > Add follow the instruction …

Then Admin > Application > Add

Just let yunohost working…. Have a tea…

The documentation explain “For admin rights: When installation is complete, you will need to visit your new hub’s page and login with the admin account username which was entered at the time of installation process. You should then be able to create your first channel and have the admin rights for the hub.”

Now I will translate this misterious sentense.

You must know the email of yunohost admin and have acces on it. I did a redirection because I don’t need yunohost email.

Then create and account with this email (admin of yunohost). You will receive by mail a password. Then you can access to you friendica and have administration.

Sometimes it is important to close registration.

More information about Friendica

Using Yunohost save you time. It configure for you all the server and the domain. You can use Friendica for you family, your group or for yourself. You will be able to communicate with the whole Fediverse, with Twitter and many other plateforme.

If this tutorial helps you just tell it on the comment. By the way you can add this blog in your contact if you already have a fediverse account (Pleroma, Mastodon, Hubzilla etc…) Just add kris@kris.aga.ovh and you will be allowed to comment directly from your fediverse account.

Have fun

Important additional information : Friendica does not work with this kind of installation. I didn’t investigate more why and how to fix it. I already installed Friendica with the classic installation and it works well. But with Yunohost It simply does not work. I create 2 account and impossible to add an account from the same instance.

If you installed Friendica with Yunohost do you have the same problem?

Martinique control of the obligatory sanitary pass to the hospital

Martinique control of the obligatory sanitary pass to the hospital

Tension was high on the main site of the main hospital of Martinique this Friday afternoon 16th of october. At midday, two men were first questioned by the police. They are two stretcher bearers of the hospital of Mangot Vulcin. According to our information, one of them tried to enter the establishment without presenting his health pass to the agents in charge of the control.

The gendarmes who asked him to obey were taken to task. An incident justifying the double arrestation.

The hours that followed consisted of a face-to-face confrontation between police officers on one side and trade unionists and other demonstrators on the other. During long hours, the latter demanded the release of the two arrested, preventing two police vans from leaving the site. Nevertheless, according to police sources, the two defendants had already been discreetly exfiltrated from the hospital.

At the same time, the management of the hospital briefly received a delegation of the inter-union to discuss these arrests.
The gendarmes, for their part, were able to get out of this tense confrontation by moving the barricades set up by the demonstrators and by using tear gas.

A third man was arrested following these incidents, this time by the police. The three defendants are now in custody at the Fort-de-France police station.

The arrival of mobile guards as reinforcements just before 4pm added further tension. Finally, it was around 4:20 pm that the police and gendarmes left the hospital. On the side of the police force, four gendarmes were injured and some equipment destroyed. Complaints will be filed for the violence and damage, warns the General Command of the Gendarmerie of Martinique.
