Visualizing physical decentralization of servers


Neat way to see all the big, popular data centers (hello, Hetzner Helzinki)

Or to explore smaller, less popular hosting providers.

👍 to @poduptime for this great map!

Hey, fedizens 👀

Are you aware of public Fedi groups lists? (any software)
Maybe you know of language-specific group lists? (i.e., ru.index.community/groups)

Gup.pe's list is on their website: gup.pe

Friendica's forum list: dir.friendica.social/forum
There should be lists for Hubzilla and Zot somewhere?

ATM there're 2 group-bots (github.com/drequivalent/mastod AND git.ondrovo.com/MightyPork/gro), work well with software that has no groups yet.

Please, welcome my IRL friend (who was patient enough to get used to a account for keeping in touch with me).

(maybe if she has more contacts, she'll visit this place more often)


"Groups you can use right now with existing software that implements the client API"

"Implement moderation"

"Admins can issue group announcements"

..Unofficial public stats reached 10k nodes.

Coincidence? 😼 I don't think so.

Next summer - 20k nodes. We can do it!

Dear new administrators of , if you wish to see your node listed at the largest federating stats hub - the-federation.info, registering it manually is much appreciated. Otherwise it may take a long time before it appears there. Thanks! 🙌

Dear Santa, (I won't tell you about my big wishes for 2021), but my small wish is:

for to stop pinging a third-party lib uploaded from 's CDN
(cdnjs.cloudflare.com) in admin's panel (search in closed issues) 😳

is not ensured by design in , but we might at least do what we can.

I'm following here two different bots (on two different servers) of the same Twitter account. And their posts are not in sync: each of them reshares some posts the other bot does not. Who knows how many posts I'm not seeing at all.


If you wish to communicate with audience, BE HERE in person.

[thanks for coming to my Ted t...]

📌 Suggestion to use tag - introduced by @cj - as the hashtag for any odd jobs related to . Sounds better than "fedijobs". Will be useful in all networks that allow following hashtags. 👍

This is my annual post praising the Germans who are still in the lead of regional themed servers trend in .

Regional servers are great! (In theory) they allow users find neighbours, meet and do funky stuff together. Which is the best part of "social". ☕ 🍻

Hey, fedizens
I suggest choosing and using one hashtag for any small jobs *related to federated software* when you post about them on here. This will help more users find your offer. Will do? Or propose something else.

It's interesting that someone is looking for Friendica help on Upwork (extra exposure, yay), but I'm sure they could find someone to help them right here, inside
